In this lesson Sts learn to use should j shouldn’t for giving
advice. The lesson begins with Sts reading three emails
which were sent to a newspaper ‘problem page’ by men
seeking advice. This leads into the grammar presentation,
which is followed by a pronunciation focus on the /u/ and
/u:/ sounds, and on sentence stress. Then there is a listening
and speaking activity where Sts hear a radio phone-in
programme and discuss the advice that is given to two
callers. Vocabulary focusses on different meanings of get,
which are recycled in a questionnaire. Finally, in Writing
Sts write a response to a person who is asking for advice.

This lesson presents the Erst conditional through the
humorous context of ‘Murphy’s Law’, which states that
if something bad can happen, it will happen. The lesson
begins with a reading text about the origins of Murphy’s
Law and Sts try to match two halves of some common
examples. This leads into the grammar presentation of the
first conditional which is followed by a pronunciation focus
on linking using conditional sentences. The vocabulary
and speaking focus is on verbs which are often confused,
like know / meet and borrow j lend, which are practised
in a questionnaire. Finally, there is a listening activity
which picks up on the theme of things going w rong. Sts
listen to the true story of a Swedish couple who, ‘when
travelling, experienced seven natural disasters, including
an earthquake.
