Слайд 12
T: Character study
Let’s work in groups. You should choose the adjectives that you associate with one of the
characters and explain why you think so.
Bossy unhappy charming cruel brave clever selfish honest friendly faithful
e.g. To my mind Bona was cruel (selfish) because she wanted to kill Barbara.
In my opinion Zhyhimont was brave ( faithful, loving) because he married Barbara against
his parents’ will. I think Zhyhimont was unhappy because his wife died very young. I’m sure
that Barbara was charming (friendly, loving) because Zhyhimont fell in love at first sight.

should make up a sentence with one of these verbs (lived, took care of, was held, fell in love,
