Sentence connectors

In Unit 8, we have been working with sentence connectors as AS SOON AS, AS A RESULT, FIRST, FINALLY, AFTER THAT or AS A RESULT. This is your chance to create your own text with these connectors.

As usual, I will give you a couple of examples. One is the description of a process and the other one is an invented story.

PROCESS: Going to Molares
First, I go to the garage to take my car. As soon as I am in my car I turn on the radio to listen to music. After that, I leave Seville and start my way to Los Molares. Finally, and after driving for more than half an hour I arrive at Los Molares and I go to my beloved I.E.S Francisco Rivero. As a result, I am ready to go to my English and Ethics lessons.

STORY: The golden hat
Mary and Tom were in the street and they wanted to buy a costume. First, they went to a shop but it was closed. After that, they decided to buy some sweets because they were hungry. Finally, they went to an old bookshop. It was full of beautiful presents. But there was a special one: a golden hat. As soon as they saw it, they wanted to buy it. Unfortunately, they couldn't because they had no money. As a result, they came back home and told their parents about the golden hat.

Now, I will give you a little present for those who read my blog. I leave here one of my favourite songs so you can listen to it at home. Enjoy it!

Predictions and plans

Remember that we have got an exam this week. So, in order to practice what you have learnt you should write three predictions and three plans. Make sure your comments (commentaries) are personal and do not copy anybody else's ideas. I write an example of some of my ideas.

Predictions: My students will have a great mark in English
I will marry a lovely girl in the future
There will be less crime next year

Plans: I am going to go to a foreign country in the summer
We are going to have dinner at the end of the academic year
Some of my students are going to go to Tenerife soon

That's all for this week. Keep on writing and good luck for the exam!
