What do you do when your troubles start multiplying? Take action

III. A bit of grammar now! .


1. Catch a falling star, put it in your pocket, never let it fade away, save it
for a rainy day.

The verbs here are in the imperative mood (


). to .
dont never. !
Finish the sentences:

2. Dont sing this song, because _______________________________________________
3. Save money, because _______________________________________________________
4. Dont save money, because _________________________________________________

5. Never let your troubles multiply, because________________________________


2. A falling star. To fall falling. 1 (Participle I),
.
Translate into English:

a. = ___________________________________________________
b. =__________________________________________
c. =___________________________________________________
d. , =_____________________________
e. ( . , ) =___________________
3. For love may come For when your troubles are starting

Paraphrase the sentences in p. 1 of this section using the new linkers for,
as, and since instead of because.

4. Wanna = want to, gonna = going to, gotta = have got to.
In English songs and casual conversation ( ,
) these forms are used instead of the
classic ones with full infinitives. As we listen to more songs, youll
see more such examples.

starting multiplying, and they just might! ( )
