  • Hand out worksheets and go over the grammar. I recommend presenting your own answers to the given questions and having the students repeat your answers for pronunciation practice.
  • Students try to complete step one. Don't forget to write the name of your schools city in number 1
  • Practice reading the clauses in the box for step 2.
  • Instruct the students to write 3 true sentences about themselves using those clauses for a guide, but allowing students to write anything else they can come up with if they so choose.
  • Students write one lie.
  • Do a demonstration with a volunteer, having all students write the volunteers name in the blank. The volunteer reads his/her 4 sentences and the rest of the class tries to guess the lie.
  • Release students to try to guess classmates' lies.


  • During the demonstration, you'll have to announce the letter designations. I recommend writing huge letters: A B C D on the board. Call out "A!" and motion for the student to recite their first sentence. Then call out "B!" and motion for the next statement. And so on.
