English week


English WEEK->
In this week we will do a project about sports or about a country in which they speak english.
There are two groups of six people and three groups of five people. Most of them are doing the projects about countries, which maybe Irland, or sports as Rugby.
All the school is doing about it, some are doing cartoon characters such as south park, futurama, american dad or family guy or the simpsons.

Talking about possibilities

Are these sentences true or fales?
Read the dialogue.

2. Rachel spoke to Abby on the phone.
4. Rachel thinks Abby will turn up later.

Rachel: Abby hasn´t turn up. Where is she?
Dan: I´m not sure. She might be at the library.
Rachel: No, she can´t be there. It´s closed on
Saturday afternoon.
Dan: Oh, right. Why don´t you phone her?
Rachel: I did, but I got her voicemail. Her
phone must be switched off.
Dan: Oh, well. She may turn up later.
Rachel: Perhaps, but I doubt it. She seemed
a bit upset last time we saw her.
Dan: Really? Why?
Rachel: I´m not sure. It might be because she
doesn´t like being with us when we argue!
