This makes it the ideal supplement to a Cambridge First Certificate or similar course. a few weeks before. Areas coveredinclude common verbs such as do. in particular.the ability to build natural phrases and expressions from known words. 3. Target structures include: past & present tenses future forms modal verbs con d iti onals reported speech th e p a ssive But not all the grammar an intermediate learner needsis about sentenceformation. Section4: Completion Activities Learners use both real-world knowledge and structural awarenessto complete sentences logically and grammatically. give and take contextualized phrasal verbs: look forward to (an event).

Ann looked up Nerv York in the atlas and shorvedhim. After going through some holiday brochures,Joe was convinced. 'I'll have to brush up my English before we go,' said Ann. On the day of their holida¡ they set off early to Amsterdam Schiphol airport. Joe's mum saw them off at the station and they were on their way. 'I hope the train doesn't break down,' said Joe. 'Calm down! (Jf course it rvon't,' replied Ann. Anywa¡ they reachedthe airport with no problems and checked in early for their flight. It was Joe's first time in an aircraft and he felt very anxious as they took off. 'There's¡ro need to feel nervous. I'm here to look after vou.' said Ann.

Part Ttao

'You'll soon get over your fear of fl,ving. Now cheer upl You're on holiday,' said Ann. After a

while, his nervousness wore off and he began to enjol' the experience. 'I'm looking forward to our weekend now,' said Joe. Five hours later they could make out New York far below them through the clouds as the plane started to descend. 'Oh no! It's raining,' saici Joe as they left the airport. But the weather soon began ¡o clear up. In their hotel, they were wondering what they could do that evenrng. 'Let's check the guide book and find out.'suggested Ann. The book informed them that the lower east side of the city was full of little Italian restaurants and nightclubs. 'Let's go. I want to try out the local cooking,' said Joe. Soon they came acrossa delightful Italian restaurant where lots of young people were eating. It was the beginning of a magical weekend they always look back on with pleasure.
