Step Two: Vocabulary Learning T: Well done. We can use adjectives to describe people or things. Now please read the short dialogue and pay attention to the words in blue. Then read the words listed in first table. (Encourage students to guess the meanings of the words by studying the different parts of the word. If they can’t, let them refer to the dictionary and check for mispronunciation.) T: Ok, now please read the explanation above the second table and answer the two questions: 1) What is the meaning of ‘synonym’? Words that have the same or similar meanings are called synonyms. 2) What is the meaning of ‘antonym’? A word that has the opposite meaning of another word is called its antonym (After this ask students to read the words listed in the table. Check for the mispronunciation and ask them to guess their meanings. If time permits, let students to think if as many pairs of synonyms and antonyms as possible and add them to the list above.)
