Learning Plans for unit 4 (at home and in class)

In unit 4 you’ll learn to use: Time phrases and frequency adverbs to talk about habits and routines. I’ll explain this grammar issue in class.

  • DON’T DO THESE LISTENINGS TILL WE DO THEM IN CLASS, PLEASE: 2.35 (p. 29), 2.40 (p. 31)
  • DO ALL THE OTHER LISTENINGS, INCLUDING THE AUDIOS IN YOUR GRAMMAR BANK AND VOC BANKS
  • DO YOUR LISTENING DIARY – THIS IS YOUR EVALUATION EXAM FOR THE SECOND TERM. WITHOUT A CREDIBLE LISTENING DIARY YOU WILL HAVE TO DO YOUR FINAL EXAM AND LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO EVALUACIÓN CONTINUA.
  • Orals: DO 1 MONOLOGUE AND 1 DIALOGUE PER UNIT MINIMUM IF YOU WANT TO PASS YOUR EVALUACIÓN CONTINUA.
  • PLUS THE LISTENING AND READING EXERCISES I’LL ASK YOU TO DO IN CLASS. And remember to write down your results for me.
  • PLUS A WRITING ASSIGNMENT: we’ll talk about this.

NOW, GET ORGANIZED! SOME TIPS!

4A

On your own at home: page 4A + back pages, except Listening 2.35 (p. 29): we’ll do it in class first.

Tips for 4A (page 28):

  • Who’s…? = Whose…? in pronunciation, but the meaning is different!!
    Who’s that? = Who is that? = Quién es?
    Whose is this? = De quién es esto?
  • Whose that? (possession) – That’s mine! That’s my pen! That’s María’s.
    Who’s that? (identity) – That’s Maria. That’s my mother. That’s my friend’s dad. That’s Peter’s sister.
    Whose are they? = De quiénes son? (los objectos)
    Who are they? = Quiénes son? (seas personas)

4B

In class, we will read the text in 4B and then you will start working on your routines, but you will include more time phrases and frequency adverbs, like I do in the monologues I recorded for you all. This will be your unit monologue: your routines on weekdays and at the weekend. (See Voc Banks pp. 156 and 157)

Time phrases (see Gr Bank 4b)
Then, / After that, / Afterwards, / Later,
After eight,
After shopping, / After doing my homework, / After eating my lunch,
In the morning, / In the afternoon, / In the evening,
At night,
After breakfast, / After lunch, / After dinner/supper,
After work/school,
First / Firstly, / Finally,
At the weekend, / On weekdays,
On Mondays,
On Tuesday morning,
At eight,
In January,
In (the) winter,
In my winter holidays, / At Christmas / On Christmas Day

Frequency adverbs (see Gr Bank 4C)
always
usually
often
Sometimes* / sometimes
never
hardly ever / seldom

Your Writing will not be about for favourite day (see p. 31), you can also do that, but first, you will write about your routine AFTER you know how to explain it! (monologue)

4C

On your own at home. Then we’ll see what we do in class.

But PREPARE THIS: with ex. 5 Speaking & Writing, on p. 31, and ex. 4 Reading and Speaking, on p. 33, prepare an interview with a classmate. (Questions and Answers). That will be your dialogue for this unit. Start with your routines, and then talk about your lifestyles. That’s the idea!
