Grammar: Making predictions

Almost halfway through season 1, in episode 11 Monica and Phoebe meet a handsome stranger and want to get to know him at any cost. That obviously doesn’t end well!

This week we’re looking at the very controversial issue of futurity in English, more specifically here at will and going to to make predictions. Lots of grammar bits in the teacher’s notes.

Here’s the worksheet and teacher’s notes: Friends – 006 – Grammar – Making predictions

Enjoy! 🙂


Grammar: Simple Past and Past Continuous

The activity this week was a contribution to the blog by Natália Guerreiro. Thanks, Natália! 🙂

In the seventh episode of season one, the friends experience a major blackout — which has, at least in the parts we’ll be watching, the merciful consequence we don’t have to hear Phoebe sing! What the friends were doing at the time the lights went out and what they did while the lights were out is what students will find out in this great activity!

Part 1: Past Continuous

Part 2: Past Simple

Friends – 005 – Past Simple and Past Continuous

Thanks again, Natália! 🙂
