  • Hi Layla,
    You did a good job. I will mention the things that I liked in your PPT, as well as that I did not like.
    I liked the way of explaining the grammar rule because it has too many examples that simplify the lesson.
    Also, I liked the way you connected the pictures with the sentences. There is one thing that I disliked which is using a long exercise which needs reading. For me, I don't care if there is too much exercises ,but they have to be short in order to get the students' motivation to complete the task. The PPT over all is very good.
