We started the session correcting the pending exercises from Tuesday. We completed the photocopy "Town ans city". Then they did a role-play activity: the students had to write a dialogue between a tourist and an assistant at the tourist office.
We continued studying a new lesson: unit 11. During this lesson we are going to learn about the verb can/can't. The verb "can" has different values: it expresses ability, possibility and permission.
First we matched the photos with the professions and then we completed the sentences which expressed the ability of these people. (t.11.4)
Then we learnt the different pronunciations of this verb and listened to Dominque and Oliver conversation. The students had to complete the dialogue with the information they heard.
Finally, we studied the other meaning of the verb "can": permission. We went to p.95 to learn about sign around the world. We identified the signs and then we wrote what they meant.

During this session we studied how to make questions and negative sentences in the past simple.
We have to follow the same rule as in the present simple.
To make questions in the past, we use the auxiliary verb "did" and the word order is the following:
(Wh.question)+ did + subject + verb (in the infinitive form)?
What +did+you+ do+ yesterday?
To make negative sentences in the past time, we need the auxiliasry verb "didn't".
subject+ didn't + verb (in the infinitive form)
I +didn't +go+ to the cinema
First, we listened to Angie and Rick talking about their weekend (T.10.3). the students had to complete the dialogue with the missing words (p.73, ex.1).
Then, we had to write some incomplete questions in the past form and answered them according to the information we listened in ex.3(T.10.5).
And finally, we wrote about what Angie and Rick didn't do last weekend (ex.4/5).(T.10.6)
To consolidate the new grammar point, we did a role-play activity. The students had to make questions about Jane and Paul's yesterday activities looking at the pictures of their flats.
