Speaking activity - Procedure
Hand out a slip of paper to each student. Tell the students to write their name on the
paper. Then, ask the students to write down a secret about themselves. The secret could
be anything, such as a hidden talent, a skill, accomplishment or a place they have visited.
However, it should be something that is unknown to anyone in the class. Collect the slips.
Read them and choose one slip that has an interesting secret. Then, ask three students to
stand up and go out of the classroom. One of the three students must be the person who
wrote the secret you have chosen. Go out of the classroom with the students and explain
to them that they must all claim to have the secret. Bring the three students back and sit
them down in front of the class.
Tell the class the secret. The class then has to question the three students to determine
which two are lying and which one is telling the truth. After about five minutes of
questioning, the students vote on who is telling the truth and who is lying. Award points
to the students who guess correctly and then play another round.

Possessive determiners constitute a sub-class of determiners which modify a noun by
attributing possession(or other sense of belonging) to someone or something. They are
also known as possessive adjectives.

Possessive Pronouns - We use


possessive pronouns to refer to a
specific
person/people
or

sometimes

EX. O carro dela amarelo e o carro dele verde. O dela amarelo e o dele verde.
Her car is yellow and his car is green. Hers is yellow and his is green.
We use pronouns to avoid repetition when it is obvious what we are talking about.
Is this your bike? > No, that ones mine. (= my bike)
Those red gloves are yours; the blue ones are hers. (= her gloves)

Worksheet 6
Present Continuous
Examples:
You are watching TV.
Are you watching TV?
You are not watching TV.

USE 1 Now

Use the Present Continuous with Normal Verbs to express the idea that something
is happening now, at this very moment. It can also be used to show that something is
not happening now.
Examples:
You are learning English now.
You are not swimming now.
Are you sleeping?

INTERMEDIATE ENGLISH COURSE


JUNE 2016
TEACHER: Tnia Rodrigues
I am sitting.
I am not standing.
Is he sitting or standing?
They are reading their books.
They are not watching television.
What are you doing?
Why aren't you doing your homework?

USE 2 Longer Actions in Progress Now

In English, "now" can mean: this second, today, this month, this year, this century,
and so on. Sometimes, we use the Present Continuous to say that we are in the
process of doing a longer action which is in progress; however, we might not be
doing it at this exact second.
Examples: (All of these sentences can be said while eating dinner in a restaurant.)
I am studying to become a doctor.
I am not studying to become a dentist.
I am reading the book Tom Sawyer.
I am not reading any books right now.
Are you working on any special projects at work?
Aren't you teaching at the university now?

USE 3 Near Future

Sometimes, speakers use the Present Continuous to indicate that something will or
will not happen in the near future.
Examples:
I am meeting some friends after work.
I am not going to the party tonight.
Is he visiting his parents next weekend?
Isn't he coming with us tonight?

USE 4 Repetition and Irritation with "Always"

The Present Continuous with words such as "always" or "constantly" expresses the
idea that something irritating or shocking often happens. Notice that the meaning is

INTERMEDIATE ENGLISH COURSE


JUNE 2016
TEACHER: Tnia Rodrigues
like Simple Present, but with negative emotion.
Remember to put the words "always" or "constantly" between "be" and "verb+ing."
Examples:
She is always coming to class late.
He is constantly talking. I wish he would shut up.
I don't like them because they are always complaining.

REMEMBER Non-Continuous Verbs/ Mixed Verbs


It is important to remember that Non-Continuous Verbs cannot be used in any
continuous tenses. Also, certain non-continuous meanings forMixed Verbs cannot
be used in continuous tenses. Instead of using Present Continuous with these verbs,
you must use Simple Present.
Examples:
She is loving this chocolate ice cream. Not Correct
She loves this chocolate ice cream. Correct

ADVERB PLACEMENT
The examples below show the placement for grammar adverbs such as: always,
only, never, ever, still, just, etc.
Examples:
You are still watching TV.
Are you still watching TV?

Worksheet 7
Past Simple

FORM

[VERB+ed] or irregular verbs

Examples:
You called Debbie.
Did you call Debbie?
You did not call Debbie.

USE 1 Completed Action in the Past

Use the Simple Past to express the idea that an action started and finished at a
specific time in the past. Sometimes, the speaker may not actually mention the
specific time, but they do have one specific time in mind.
Examples:
I saw a movie yesterday.

INTERMEDIATE ENGLISH COURSE


JUNE 2016
TEACHER: Tnia Rodrigues
I didn't see a play yesterday.
Last year, I traveled to Japan.
Last year, I didn't travel to Korea.
Did you have dinner last night?

USE 2 A Series of Completed Actions

We use the Simple Past to list a series of completed actions in the past. These
actions happen 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and so on.
Examples:
I finished work, walked to the beach, and found a nice place to swim.
Did you add flour, pour in the milk, and then add the eggs?

USE 3 Duration in Past

The Simple Past can be used with a duration which starts and stops in the past. A
duration is a longer action often indicated by expressions such as: for two years, for
five minutes, all day, all year, etc.
Examples:
I lived in Brazil for two years.
Shauna studied Japanese for five years.
They did not stay at the party the entire time.
We talked on the phone for thirty minutes.
A: How long did you wait for them?
B: We waited for one hour.

USE 4 Habits in the Past

The Simple Past can also be used to describe a habit which stopped in the past. It
can have the same meaning as "used to." To make it clear that we are talking about
a habit, we often add expressions such as: always, often, usually, never, when I was
a child, when I was younger, etc.
Examples:
I studied French when I was a child.
He didn't play the piano.
Did you play a musical instrument when you were a kid?
They never went to school, they always skipped class.

INTERMEDIATE ENGLISH COURSE


JUNE 2016
TEACHER: Tnia Rodrigues

USE 5 Past Facts or Generalizations

The Simple Past can also be used to describe past facts or generalizations which are
no longer true. As in USE 4 above, this use of the Simple Past is quite similar to the
expression "used to."
Examples:
She was shy as a child, but now she is very outgoing.
He didn't like tomatoes before.
Did you live in Texas when you were a kid?

ADVERB PLACEMENT
The examples below show the placement for grammar adverbs such as: always,
only, never, ever, still, just, etc.
Examples:
You just called Debbie.
Did you just call Debbie?

Past Continuous

FORM

[was/were + present participle]

Examples:
You were studying when she called.
Were you studying when she called?
You were not studying when she called.

USE 1 Interrupted Action in the Past

Use the Past Continuous to indicate that a longer action in the past was interrupted.
The interruption is usually a shorter action in the Simple Past. Remember this can be
a real interruption or just an interruption in time.
Examples:
I was watching TV when she called.
When the phone rang, she was writing a letter.
While we were having the picnic, it started to rain.
What were you doing when the earthquake started?

INTERMEDIATE ENGLISH COURSE


JUNE 2016
TEACHER: Tnia Rodrigues
I was listening to my iPod, so I didn't hear the fire
alarm.
You were not listening to me when I told you to turn the oven off.
While I was writing the email, the computer suddenly went off.
A: What were you doing when you broke your leg?
B: I was snowboarding.

USE 2 Specific Time as an Interruption

In USE 1, described above, the Past Continuous is interrupted by a shorter action in


the Simple Past. However, you can also use a specific time as an interruption.
Examples:
Last night at 6 PM, I was eating dinner.
At midnight, we were still driving through the desert.
Yesterday at this time, I was sitting at my desk at work.
IMPORTANT
In the Simple Past, a specific time is used to show when an action began or finished.
In the Past Continuous, a specific time only interrupts the action.
Examples:
Last night at 6 PM, I ate dinner.
I started eating at 6 PM.
Last night at 6 PM, I was eating dinner.
I started earlier; and at 6 PM, I was in the process of eating dinner.

USE 3 Parallel Actions

When you use the Past Continuous with two actions in the same sentence, it
expresses the idea that both actions were happening at the same time. The actions
are parallel.
Examples:
I was studying while he was making dinner.
While Ellen was reading, Tim was watching television.
Were you listening while he was talking?
I wasn't paying attention while I was writing the letter, so I made several
mistakes.
What were you doing while you were waiting?
Thomas wasn't working, and I wasn't working either.
They were eating dinner, discussing their plans, and having a good time.

USE 4 Atmosphere

INTERMEDIATE ENGLISH COURSE


JUNE 2016
TEACHER: Tnia Rodrigues
In English, we often use a series of parallel actions to
describe the atmosphere at a particular time in the past.
Example:
When I walked into the office, several people were busily typing, some were
talking on the phones, the boss was yelling directions, and customers were
waiting to be helped. One customer was yelling at a secretary
and waving his hands. Others were complainingto each other about the bad
service.

USE 5 Repetition and Irritation with "Always"

The Past Continuous with words such as "always" or "constantly" expresses the idea
that something irritating or shocking often happened in the past. The concept is very
similar to the expression "used to" but with negative emotion. Remember to put
the words "always" or "constantly" between "be" and "verb+ing."
Examples:
She was always coming to class late.
He was constantly talking. He annoyed everyone.
I didn't like them because they were always complaining.

While vs. When


Clauses are groups of words which have meaning, but are often not complete
sentences. Some clauses begin with the word "when" such as "when she called" or
"when it bit me." Other clauses begin with "while" such as "while she was sleeping"
and "while he was surfing." When you talk about things in the past, "when" is most
often followed by the verb tense Simple Past, whereas "while" is usually followed
by Past Continuous. "While" expresses the idea of "during that time." Study the
examples below. They have similar meanings, but they emphasize different parts of
the sentence.
Examples:
I was studying when she called.
While I was studying, she called.

REMEMBER Non-Continuous Verbs / Mixed Verbs


It is important to remember that Non-Continuous Verbs cannot be used in any
continuous tenses. Also, certain non-continuous meanings forMixed Verbs cannot
be used in continuous tenses. Instead of using Past Continuous with these verbs, you
must use Simple Past.
Examples:

Correct
Jane was at my house when you arrived. Correct

ADVERB PLACEMENT
The examples below show the placement for grammar adverbs such as: always,
only, never, ever, still, just, etc.
Examples:
You were just studying when she called.
Were you just studying when she called?
