The present lesson plan aims to work on describing people by using physical adjetives through a "Heroes" theme. It was made for 9th grade or above.

After that, a game called "Descrive the suspect" as a pair-work activity aims to practice drawing and use the subject. The lesson plan ends with a culminant game called "Guess the hero", which two or more groups have to choose a representative to guess standing back to the whiteboard (which has several heros sticked on it) and give descriptions of one hero chosen by the teacher.
Pite Saami is a highly endangered Western Saami language in the Uralic language family currently spoken by a few individuals in Swedish Lapland. This grammar is the first extensive book-length treatment of a Saami language written in English. While focussing on the morphophonology of the main word classes nouns, adjectives and verbs, it also deals with other linguistic structures such as prosody, phonology, phrase types and clauses. Furthermore, it provides an introduction to the language and its speakers, and an outline of a preliminary Pite Saami orthography. An extensive annotated spoken-language corpus collected over the course of five years forms the empirical foundation for this description, and each example includes a specific reference to the corpus in order to facilitate verification of claims made on the data. Descriptions are presented for a general linguistics audience and without attempting to support a specific theoretical approach, but this book should be equally useful for scholars of Uralic linguistics, typologists, and even learners of Pite Saami.
