This lesson presents the present perfect to talk about the
recent past, and Sts also learn to use it withyet,just, and
already. Sts who completed English File Elementary will
have already seen the present perfect (though not yet,just,
and already), but for other Sts this will be completely new.
The context is problems between teenagers and parents,
from both points of view. Sts begin with an article to
read, where they have to decide whether the problems
referred to are teenagers talking about their parents, or
vice versa. There is then a vocabulary focus on common
verb phrases for housework, and collocarions with make
and do. The gram mar is then presented through four short
dialogues.

This is followed by a pronunciation focus on two
consonant sounds

and the lesson ends with a
listening about teenagers who look after their parents.

In this lesson Sts look at the present perfect for past
experience with ever / never, and contrast it with the
past simple. Again, for Sts who completed English File
Elementary this will be revision. The context of the
lesson is fashion and shopping. Sts begin by reading an
interview (especially given ro English File) with a designer
who designs clothes for celebrities, and through this the
grammar is presented. Sts then listen to four different
people answering the quest ion Have you ever bought
something that you’ve never worn? The vocabulary focus is
on shopping, and the pronunciation on different ways of
pronouncing the letters c and ch. Finally, Sts have a mingle
activity where they ask other Sts some shopping-related
Haveyou ever… ? questions, which they then follow up with
past simple questions.

In this lesson Sts learn how to use something, anything,
nothing, etc. These words will be familiar to Sts by this
stage, but here they are focussed on in detail. The context is
a (true) story about a man who spent the weekend trapped
in a lift, and an article about the fact th a t many people
today invent what they did at the weekend in order to make
it sound more exciting.
After listening to the story and focussing on the grammar,
Sts focus on some vowel sounds in order to be able to
pronounce the key grammar expressions correctly. They
read the article, and then talk about their own weekends.
Finally, in Vocabulary Sts focus on the contrast between
-ed and -ing adjectives.
