In the first one, students have to look for the definition of the word "diner" and choose the tick picture, choose the type of activities that usually happen in a diner, and match vocabulary from the song with the pictures that appear in the handout. Then, they have to complete the song by using the verbs in the box and change them into the present continuous. Finally, in the post listening section, students have to change the sentences in the song to their negative and interrogative forms, change the ending of the song, give it another title, and explain what the song is about (either orally or in writing).
