Then answer the questions


Mark
On Christmas Day we usually go to my parents house. We
open our presents, then have a big lunch at about 2.00 in the
afternoon.
But this Christmas is different! Mark and his wife are in
Australia. Theyre visiting friends. Today they are having
a barbecue next to the swimming pool. Its hot and
theyre wearing swimsuits.

a) What does Mark usually do on Christmas day? What is


he doing this Christmas?
b) Underline the verbs in the text. Compare between the
verbs that describe habits (usually) and the verbs that
describe actions in the moment (this Saturday/ Christ-
mas/ Now ).
