Hello people,

                    Just to say that if you are stressed out because your answers are wrong then don’t worry becuase for some reason I have a different version! So my ABCD’s are different!  At this point we’ll leave it at that!

Hello there,

                       Apologies for my absence but now we’re back in business and on the home run!

Last week we started looking at the Present perfect Continuous , here’s the grammar!

PRESENT PERFECT CONTINUOUS

FORM

  S. + Aux have+ been V +ing  
AFFIRMATIVE I’VE BEENHe’s been WAITING FOR TWO HOURS
NEGATIVE I HAVEN’T BEEN LIVING HERE LONG.
QUESTION HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN STUDYING ENGLISH?

 

I’ve lived/I’ve been/I’ve seen

USE

ACTIONS STARTED IN THE PAST WHICH CONTINUE

I’VE BEEN LIVING HERE FOR 10 YEARS. (I STILL LIVE HERE)

 FOR  + TIME EXPRESSION = LENGTH OF TIME

I’VE BEEN STUDYING ENGLISH FOR 10 YEARS/FOR A LONG TIME/ FOR AGES

 

SINCE + TIME EXPRESSION = STARTING POINT

I’VE BEEN LIVING HERE SINCE SEPTEMBER/2000/I WAS A BOY.

 

QUESTIONS WITH “how long,,,,”?

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WAITING?

 

Do not use the Present perfect continuous with stative verbs.

 

I’ve been here since January

I’ve been being here since January. NO!!!!!

I’ve liked that song for ages!!! ok

Typical expressions with the Present perfect Continuous

How long have you been waiting/ living here/ working here/ doing that?

Have you been waiting/ living here/ working here/ doing that long?

What have you been doing?

I’ve been studying/ waiting/ living here/ working here/ doing this since 9 o’clock/ last week/last month/since last year.

 Then we had a look at the present tense used in the future!

If clauses and present tense 1st conditional

If + present tense , future

Future if + present tense

If it rains, we’ll stay at home.

 If I don’t pass the exam, I’ll be very unhappy.

I’ll be very unhappy if I don’t pass the exam 

 

We’ll stay at home if it rains.

He won’t come to the party if he doesn’t feel well!

also when/before/after/until/as soon as/once

 in phrases referring to the future use the Present Simple

When I arrive, I’ll phone you.

Before she leaves, she’ll lock all the doors.

I’ll call you as soon as/after I get to the hotel.

I won’t call you until I get to the hotel.

REMEMBER

Use the PRESENT PERFECT instead of the PRESENT if you want to emphasize that the action has finished!

 

Once I’VE GOT my degree, I’ll travel the world!

As soon as YOU’VE PAID the bill, we’ll send the order!

 As regards vocab. we’ve been looking at PHRASAL VERBS with the verb “LIVE”

live out of a suitcase, live through; live on; live up to, live for; live off,

We also had a look at ” containers” – packet, box, bottle, carton, tin, can

FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH

Giving advice!!!

For example :SHOULD

To ask for and give advice

What should I do?

You should take an aspirin.

You shouldn’t eat too much chocolate.

 I don’t think you should eat so much chocolate.

NB the form “if I were you, I’d…..”

If I were you, I’d buy a new car.

Also  WHY  DON’T YOU….

Why don’t you go on a diet?!

All these expressions are followed by the verb in the BASE FORM
eg. You should                         stop smoking!

    If I were you I’d                 stop smoking!

Why don’t you                       stop smoking?

If you use the form :

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT…..then the verb is in the ING form

Have you though about going on a diet?

ANSWERS!

Of course, you’re right!

Great/good idea!

Oh no, I couldn’t!!!

Now here are the answers to the test beginning with the listening on John Lennon!

Hello everybody!

                               Welcome back! Sorry for my absence over the hols but all those Easter eggs!!!

  Anyway last week we completed our last module about Sennifer’s tomb- taking a look mainly at vocab!

We’ve now started on revision – beginning with Vermeer!

Remember that for the written test the worksheets are all valid – for the oral you need to be able to talk about the article in the book!

so as regards Vermeer for the oral you need to be able to:

1) describe the painting –

2) talk about the symbolism

   Remember if you have any questions don’t hesitate!

      See you on Tuesday!
