Irregular verbs

Forget the future! It's all about the past now! You can start by revising and practising irregular verbs here. Don't forget to learn the pronunciation, too. It's just as important as the spelling.

You can download the exercise we did in class here.

Writing: description of a person

She's a bit forgetful.

Write a description of a person you know well. You have a model text and instructions on page 113 of your book.


  • Plan your paragraphs carefully (see your book)
  • Use a variety of personality adjectives.
  • When you say something negative, use a bit + negative adjective (a bit messy) or not very + positive adjective (not very organized)
Deadline for this is November 24th.

November 10th

This week we've been learning adjectives of personality and practising the future. I've added a video and more exercises about the future here.

Homework: do these exercises and finish the exercises in the future handout (I have found them here, but don't look at the answers!) I'd also like you to contribute to this.

And now listen to Michael Buble. He's IRRESPONSIBLE and UNRELIABLE! 😱

More about the future

Watch this BBC video and see how to use will, going to and the present continuous in a natural way.

If you need more practice, here you have plenty of exercises and you'll find a video, explanation and exercises here. Are you GOING TO (plan) try them? I think you WILL find them useful (prediction 😉)
