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.)

이 액티비티는 문장의 정확성과 복잡성을 개선하기 위해 고안되었습니다. 대부분의 학생들은 문장에서 핵심 내용 단어를 생성 할 수 있습니다. 그러나 기능적 단어가 어렵거나 중요하지 않은 것처럼 보일 수 있기 때문에 정확성에 어려움이 있습니다. 이 액티비티는 학습자가 실수에 대한 즉각적인 피드백을 제공함으로써 이러한 기능적 단어의 문제를 제거하는 데 도움이 됩니다. 또한 학생들이 보다 자연스럽고 다양하며 복잡한 문장 구조를 사용하는 데 도움이 됩니다.
팁 : 문장을 크게 말하세요. 자주 저지르는 실수 유형과, 이러한 유형의 오류에 집중하세요. (단수 / 복수, 주어-동사 일치, 관사 사용, 전치사, 동명사 및 부정사, 명사절, 형용사절, 어순 및 단어 형태)

Everything's bigger in America. We've got the biggest cars, the biggest houses, the biggest companies, the biggest food, and, finally, the biggest people.
America has now become the fattest nation in the world.
Congratulations. Nearly 100 million Americans are today either overweight or obese. That's more than 60% of all U.S. adults.
Since 1980, the total number of overweight and obese Americans has doubled, with twice as many overweight children and three times as many overweight adolescents.
The fattest state in America? Mississippi -- where one in four people are obese.
I grew up in west Virginia, currently the third-fattest state in America.
When I was growing up, my mother cooked dinner every single day. Almost all my memories of her are in the kitchen. And we never ate out, only on those few, rare special occasions.
Today, families do it all the time, and they're paying for it -- not only with their wallets, but with their waistlines.
Obesity is now second only to smoking as a major cause of preventable death in America, with more than 400,000 deaths per year associated with related illnesses.
In 2002, a few Americans got fed up with being overweight and did what we do best. They sued the bastards.
Taking aim at the fast-food companies and blaming them for their obesity and illnesses, a lawsuit was filed in New York on behalf of two teenage girls, one who was 14 years old, 4'10", and 170 pounds, the other, 19 years old, 5'6", and 270 pounds.
The unthinkable had suddenly become reality. People were suing the golden arches for selling them food that most of us know isn't good for you to begin with.
Yet each day, one in four Americans visits a fast-food restaurant.
And this hunger for fast food isn't just in America. it's happening on a global basis.
McDonalds alone operates more than 30,000 joints in over 100 countries on 6 continents and feeds more than 46 million people worldwide every day. That's more than the entire population of Spain.
In the United States alone, McDonalds accounts for 43% of the total fast-food market.
They're everywhere -- Wal-Mart's, airports, rest stops, gas stations, train stations, shopping malls, department stores, amusement parts, even hospitals. That's right -- hospitals. At least you're close when the coronary kicks in.
Lawyers for McDonald's called the suits "frivolous", stating that the dangers of its food are universally known and that these kids can't show that their weight problems and health woes were caused solely by their McDiets.
The judge states, however, that if lawyers for the teens can show that McDonald's intends for people to eat its food for every meal of every day and that doing so would be unreasonably dangerous, they may be able to state a claim.
Are the food companies solely to blame for this epidemic? Where does personal responsibility stop and corporate responsibility begin?
Is fast food really that bad for you? I mean, what would happen if I ate nothing but McDonald's for 30 days straight? Would I suddenly be on the fast track to becoming an obese American? Would it be unreasonably dangerous?
Let's find out. Im ready.
