If necessary, do another example roleplay with the whole class before students work in pairs.

■ Encourage students to discuss what they felt they did well and what they found most difficult in the roleplays. Ask students if it was easier to act the part of a parent or the part of a teenager. Give your own evaluation and go over any general language point that you made a note of when monitoring the pairwork.




Exercise 7

■ To practise using modals for speculation.

■ To speculate about people in photos and about classmates.

Resource used

Cassette/CD. Grammar

In this lesson we present modal verbs used for speculating (must, could, may, might, can't, couldn't) and their uses: must - a strong conviction that something is/was true; can't, couldn't - a strong conviction that something is/was not true; may, might, could - a possibility that something is/was true; may not, might not - a possibility that something is/was not true.

We also draw students' attention to the types of infinitives that can be used after these modal verbs and differences in their usage: ordinary infinitive (She might know them) is used to speculate about unlimited present time; progressive infinitive (She might be snorkelling) is used to speculate about things going on at the moment of speaking; perfect infinitive (He might have fallen asleep) is used to speculate about the past.

Troubleshooting: Students may use can to speculate, with the same meaning as may.

Exercise 10

('Charity shops' are found almost everywhere in the UK, raising funds for charities by selling second hand clothes and other items.) Encourage students to make more sentences about the woman in the photo. Ask questions to prompt them, if necessary, e.g. Where does she live? How often doe she come here? What sort of work did she do? What is she thinking?

■Students work individually, making notes of their speculations about each person's present and past. Help students with vocabulary if necessary but encourage them to try and express their ideas using the English they already know. For example, if students have forgotten the word widow, they can say Her husband is dead/She was married but her husband died ten years ago.

• Students compare their ideas with a partner.


■ Give students more practice by asking them to speculate about the person/people in another photo from an earlier module (or from magazines you have brought to the lesson).
