Touchstone 2 Unit 4 "Celebrations"
Transcript of Touchstone 2 Unit 4 "Celebrations"
Celebrations can be special days in people's lives, like a birthday, or a special day for a culture, like New Year's Day. Make a list of special days for individuals and another list for special days in Korean culture.
LESSON A: Birthdays
When we say dates and numbered expressions that follow a progression we sometimes use "ordinal numbers."
I was born on July 1st.
My birthday is on the 10th of May.
This is the baby's third birthday.

What are you going to do on your birthday?
Be going to
is used to talk about plans, especially when a person has already made a decision:
I'm going to buy Mom something special.
Be going to
is used to make preditictions about future events:
She's going to be a great lawyer.
It's going to rain.
Practice: Talk with your partner about what you are going to do this weekend?
LESSON B: Special Days
We can use indirect objects to tell "who" we are going to "do" something for. Three of the most common verbs used with indirect objects are: buy, give, and send.
I'm going to buy my mother a gift.
Damian isn't going to give Joe any money.
Would you like to send her some flowers?
Object pronouns (me, you, her, him, us, them) may also be used as indirect objects.
Talk with your partner about some of the things you are going to do for your friends and family.
Pair Work (Page 36 Activity B)
Talk about special days or events you are having this year. When are they? How are you going to celebrate them?
Use the present continuous or "be going to" to talk about future plans.
The present continuous is often used to talk about plans with specific times or places.
What are you doing for New Year's Eve?
We're going to the Sea Grill for dinner.
We're meeting friends there at 8:30.
"Be going to" is usually used to talk about plans when the specific time or place is unknown or unimportant.
What are you going to do for New Year's Eve?
We're going to go somewhere for dinner.
We're going to meet some friends for dinner.
