The lesson featured a sequence of 4 major activities. The first one titled ‘We are Muong people’ in 5 minutes, aiming at dividing students into 3 Muong groups: Muong Bi, Muong Vang and Muong Dong. The second 10-minute activity, Discovering Muong female costumes, helped students to recognise the spelling, pronunciation and meaning of the words. They could write down and speak the words about some common Muong Clothes for females. Next comes controlled practice when the students were asked to look at a picture of Muong women in traditional costumes and describe the costumes regarding the type of clothes and colour. Finally, each group followed instructions in different points at the playground (representing the stream, bridge, Muong house, etc.) in the escape game to collect materials so that they could design and create the Muong clothing items. Their final product was the presentation of their design in a poster, and they used the target language (vocab and sentence patterns) to describe the clothing items in their poster.
