At/by the end of the unit, what do you want the student to be able to do with the language?
Final assessment (Scenario): 
Your instructor will play the role of a local friend. The topic of discussion will be about you, your closest friends, and family members. You might be asked to reflect on your life, past experiences, what to do after graduation, and your ideas for the future. You might be asked to talk about your closest friend, for example. The goal would be to present that person as best as you can. This will include: physical description, personality traits (compare it with the generally associated characteristics of their horoscope sign), fears, goals for the future, lifestyle, etc. You might be asked to compare your lifestyle with someone else's. You are expected to learn more about your local friend – ask intelligent questions of your instructor. You might also be asked to give advice on how to improve a lifestyle. Think of home remedies and whether you would implement them in your life.
  Break the goal down into smaller learning targets.
Module 1: I can talk about sports, interests, activities, and my free time. I can talk about someone's physical appearance, general information, and traits that best describe a person.
Module 2: I can talk about my plans for the future, my ideal job, and can understand the basics of a job application.
Module 3: I can talk about my fears and phobias, and I can express my aches and health issues at the doctor’s office. I can talk about my eating habits, a healthy lifestyle, and can give suggestions on how to improve healthy living.
Module 4: Performance-based final unit assessment
  For each learning target (Modules 1-3), determine a concrete task that will demonstrate that the students have reached it.
Module 1: In a dialogue, talk about yourself. What are your daily and weekly routines? It’s a conversation with a friend about physical activities and life routines. You will need to compare your lifestyles and discuss possible improvements for both of you.
Module 2: Talk about your dream job. What qualities do you have for the job, what are you working on to improve yourself, your qualifications and your personality traits. Create your Euoropass CV on their online platform.
Module 3: Talk about your general fears. What do you do when you get sick? Perform a dialogue at the doctor’s office. Do you use any home remedies and would you use any from Croatia that people make/use? Give suggestions on what to do to get better soon.
