In this unit we are going to talk about two modal verbs: “may” and “might”. Both verbs are very similar and can normally be used interchangeably. However, “might” suggests a weaker possibility, a smaller chance of something happening.
1) Pay attention to this video in which an english teacher shows us the differences between “may” and “might”.
2) Do you know how to use these verbs in the continuous forms? Don’t miss this video.
3) Now, read the theory about “may “and “might” here and here.
4) Practice makes perfect!
5) Use the sentences from the above exercises to practice with your language exchange. Remember: If you don't have a language exchange (or a teacher) you're wasting your time, you'll never learn to speak English.
6) Let's learn some vocabulary. Extract all the words you don't know from this text.Look them up in an English-English dictionary as this one.
7) Listen and read this story. You should learn all the vocabulary and practice pronunciation. And, for the most daring, read this article from The Economist.
8) Finally, write a story of about 200/250 words using sentences with the modal verbs reviewed in this unit. You can use examples from the videos and exercises above.
If you have done all the exercises, then you've scored a 10! Good job! Imprimir
