I'd say

Hey there!

I'd say any suggestion we might make would need to be based on what you have been teaching in oral communication. Seems a conflict of interests to do a written text on oral communication, unless, of course, the class has been more theory than practice. Give a few details, I or we might have some ideas for you.

I taught the following:

Which JHS are you from?
Which club are you going to join?
What are you most interested in?

How do you spend your free time?
What did you do last weekend?
What are you going to do this weekend?

Do you like watching TV?
What kind of TV programs do you like?
Who's your favorite actor?

Telling Time

I will dictate the key expressions, the students will write the questions and answer them. Also, they will have some Telling Time .

When the first students finish I will call them outside for an oral check and I will have them drill their classmates as they come out using the targe language.

Students in the classroom will be busy working on the 20 most frequently heard mistakes worksheet.

Does this sound like a good idea?
