Summary

This activity is designed to improve sentence accuracy and complexity. Most students can produce the key content words in a sentence. However, they have difficulty with accuracy because the functional words are difficult or can seem unimportant. This activity will help learners eliminate problems with these functional words by giving them immediate feedback on the mistakes they are making. It will also help students develop their use of more natural, varied and complex sentence structures.

TIP: Say the sentence out loud. Notice the types of mistake you make often. Focus on those types of errors. (singular/plural, subject-verb agreement, article use, prepositions, gerunds and infinitives, noun clauses, adjective clauses, word order, and word forms.)

También ayudará a los estudiantes a desarrollar su uso de estructuras de oraciones más naturales, variadas y complejas.

CONSEJO: Diga la oración en voz alta. Observe los tipos de errores que comete con frecuencia. Concéntrese en ese tipo de errores.

triangle Script 대본 Texto


Raj: Excuse me, I’m meeting a girl here. It’s kind of our first date.

Man: In a library?

Raj: She and I are both a little awkward in social situations, so this seemed like a good idea.

Man: People say I’m a little awkward, too. May I join you?

Raj: No, you can’t join us. Just go, go climb back up whatever beanstalk you came down from.

Man: You can do better.

Lucy: Oh, we’re eating here? We’re having a texting date? I love that.

Raj: As you’re reading, it will help to remember I have an adorable accent.

Raj: My dad’s a gynaecologist in India, so if you’re over there and need a check up, as he likes to say, he’s at your cervix.

Lucy: That’s terrible. Your dad should be sent to the pun-itentiary.

Raj: That’s a fitting pun-ishment. I still don’t know what you do for a living.

Lucy: Web design.

Raj: Anything I might have seen?

Lucy: I don’t know. You ever look at porn websites?

Raj: No, never. What is porn?

Lucy: Sorry. Autocorrect. That was supposed to say prom Web sites.

Raj: Ooh, fun. I love prom. The romance, the gowns, it’s like a fairy tale come to life. Sorry. Autocorrect. That was supposed to say, I like sports.

Raj: This was really fun.

Lucy: My battery’s dying, so I’m just going to talk. Thanks for today. I’ve been trying to do more things that scare me, and coming here was definitely one of them. But it was also really nice. So thanks, and, I’m going to go.

Lucy: Maybe I could do one more scary thing before I go and give you a kiss good-bye? You know, if that’s okay. Okay.

Lucy: Panic attack. Maybe next time.
