First, learners will do a drawing-on-the-back activity to review clothes vocabulary. Then they do a simple drawing dictation to practise using the present continuous with clothes, and play a game to describe what their classmates are wearing. Finally, there are two options for learners to make a poster, as well as ideas for homework and follow-up activities.
