Who It’s For: Teachers, Helpers, & Progressing Speakers of English Ready to “Take It Easy” with a Break from Serious Real-Life Topics
Why It’s Useful: Everybody needs to think or talk about—and make—plans for pursuing (recreational) interests now and then. In the Intro to the final Strip Story of WorkLife English Skills Book 1: Life Skills, two young adults ask each other, “What are You Going to Do Today?” With sentence structures for the Present / Future, they verbalize their thoughts about spending some time on sports, in fun classes, with music, and on entertainment. Illustrated Part One Vocabulary suggests swimming, bicycling, football & other sports, movies (but not radio), shopping, card-playing, and partying. Part Two Listening Tasks are related to the same kinds of pursuits. Exercises A, *B, C, D, E, *F of Part Three / Grammar get participants to ask about and reveal present interests—and to use the present (continuous) or going to verb phrasing for intentions in the near future. Tapescript portions reinforce appropriate sentence structuring.
