Destresa: parla, vocabulari

Communitative Objective: you will learn how to vividly describe somebody’s appearance and point out certain characteristics.

Situation: you are doing some grocery shopping at a store when a person comes in and robs the store! The police arrive at the scene after the crime to find that you are the only witness and only chance to help catch the criminal.

Task: work in pairs, one plays the witness and the other plays the policeman. Look at the pictures first. The “witness” will choose the suspect out of the photos attached on the link below.  The witness will then give a description of the suspect to the “policeman” while the policeman listens to the descriptions.  After a vivid description, the policeman will then have to guess which out of the selected photos is the person that committed the crime based on the description.

Here is a list of vocabulary and photos of the “suspects.”

Adjectives vs adverbs

grammar.jpg

Idioma: Anglès
Nivell: A2 / B1 (nivell 2 i 3)
Destresa: gramàtica

Objectives:
To learn how to use an adjective or and adverb depending on the sentence.

Task:
Read this explanation about adjectives and adverbs and try to fill in the gaps in the exercise.

Grammar:

We use adjectives and adverbs to qualify or limit the meaning of other words, but we can’t substitute an adverb for an adjective in a sentence. Each one has its own specific job to do.

• Adjectives describe a noun or a pronoun. They usually precede the noun or the pronoun that they modify.

E.g.: It is an interesting film.
Susan is a beautiful girl.

• Adverbs describe a verb, and adjective or other adverb. They tell us how an action was done. Many adverbs are formed by adding –ly to an adjective. Adverbs usually come after the subject or after the object.

E.g.: Mary quickly wrote the letter.
Mary wrote the letter quickly.
