Работа с презентацией № 1

Teacher: слайд № 1: я хочу напомнить, что Futuresimple. Простое будущее время — выражает действие, которое должно совершиться в будущем. Образуется с помощью вспомогательного глагола will.

В предложениях в этом времени вы часто встретите указание на точное время (дата, часы), а также слова, такие как:

-       tomorrow (завтра)

-       the day after tomorrow (послезавтра)

-       next week (на следующей неделе)

-       in an hour (через час) и т. д.

-       They will join us in an hour (они присоединятся к нам через час).

-       We’ll see our friends tomorrow (мы увидим наших друзей завтра).

Вопросительная форма глаголов в будущем простом времени образуется с помощью перестановки: вспомогательный глагол ставится перед подлежащим.

-        Will you work (ты будешь работать?)

-        Will they come (они придут?)

Отрицательная форма глаголов в Future Simple образуется с помощью not, которое ставится между вспомогательным и смысловым глаголами.

-        He will not do this (он этого не сделает).

-        I will not see it (я этого не увижу).

Слайд № 2: Future Continuous — Будущее продолженное время означает действие, которое будет совершаться в процессе в будущем неопределенном промежутке времени. Образуется: will be verb+ ing.

Trip to London

Hello! My name is Lika. I'm from Moscow. In late December, I visited the UK as tourists.

The UK has old cultural traditions to which its residents are trying to adhere to.

I was lucky enough to visit several traditional festivals UK: wedding ceremony, a traditional tea party and the celebration of Christmas. It was unforgettable.

Modern traditions are very bright, cheerful, happy and colorful. I was particularly impressed by the tea traditions. But to understand what Englishmen feel it is necessary to participate in a tea ceremony and meet them personally.
