About Longman English Interactive
Longman English Interactive is a comprehensive multimedia course that lets students work at their own pace on a range of language activities. Longman English Interactive 1 is available in two versions: an online version that can be accessed anytime, anywhere, and a CD-ROM version that can be used in a language lab or on a personal computer. In each unit, students work with contemporary and engaging video, audio, animations, and extensive practice activities that provide up to 4 hours of self-paced instruction and practice in grammar, speaking, listening, vocabulary, pronunciation, and reading. Additionally, the online version of Longman English Interactive includes a writing component that allows instructors to grade and critique student essays online.

Simple screenshots help students quickly learn how to use the software. Progress Checks for each unit enable students to keep a record of completed activities and scores on the review quizzes in the course. Additional listening tasks let students review the course audio segments. Each Activity and Resource Book includes an audio CD. Vocabulary reviews offer students new ways of remembering key words and phrases from each unit. Expanded grammar exercises for each grammar point allow students to consolidate learning. Application Activities provide multiple ways for students to apply what they have learned in realistic ways.

The Simple Present Singular I speak you speak he, she, it speaks Plural we speak you speak they speak Grammar 2: Simple Present Tense Questions 1. To make a question in the simple present tense, use do or does and the simple form of the verb. Chris and Ana work for Silica Communications. Kate works for a travel agency. Do Chris and Ana work for Silica Communications? Does Kate work for a travel agency? 2. We use does for he, she, it, and singular nouns. Dave: Does Ana live here? Chris: Yes, she does. We use do for I, you, we, they, and plural nouns. Dave: Do they work at Silica Communications? Chris: Yes, they work at Silica Communications. Dave: Do you like this restaurant? Chris: Yes, I do. 3. You can answer a question with a long answer. Dave: Do you like American food? Emi: Yes, I like American food. But usually we just use short answers. Dave: Do you like American food? Emi: Yes, I do. We can also answer: Jin: No, I dont. Use does in short answers with he, she, and it. Dave: Does she like Chinese food? Emi: Yes, she does. Remember, we dont answer, Yes, I like OR No, I no like. 4. To make a negative statement in the simple present tense, use doesnt or dont before the verb. Chris and Ana work on the weekends. Sam works at the Rock. Chris and Ana dont work on the weekends. Sam doesnt work at the Rock. Grammar 3: Verbs and Direct Objects 1. Lets talk about objects. I have the menu. She wants a hamburger. 2. In English, the direct object always follows the verb. In this sentence, like is the verb and sushi is the direct object. I like sushi. 3. Direct objects can also be pronouns. Kate likes him. Kate likes us.

2. One form of simple present verbs is different.Which one is it? Look at the example: She works at Silica Communications. 3. We use the simple present tense for things that happen again and again. Chris usually arrives at the office at 9:00 a.m. Chris leaves the office at 7:00 p.m. every day. 4. We use the simple present tense to tell facts. Anas salad costs five dollars. Luis speaks three languages. 5. Use the simple present tense with like, need, have, and want. Chris likes hamburgers. Chris needs a soda. 6. Remember, we always have a subject like I, you, or she in all sentences in English except commands. Chris works at Silica Communications. He works at Silica Communications. He likes his job. Ana and Emi love coffee. They drink too much of it! When we use he, she, or it, the verb is spelled in three different ways. When the simple form ends in sh, ch, x, s, z, or o, add -es: I teach. She teaches. When the simple form ends in a consonant plus y, change the y to an i and add -es: I worry. He worries. When the simple form ends in any other letter, add -s: I live. She lives.

Grammar Explanations
This section contains the same grammar explanations that are found in the lesson. They are included here for your quick reference. To view the animated presentation, go to the Grammar section of Unit C.5.
Grammar 1: Modal: Can and Cant 1. We use can plus the simple form of the verb to describe things people are able to do. Dave can cook. Rich can wash dishes. 2. To make a negative statement, use cannot or cant. Rich cannot cook. Rich cant cook. Cant is more common in conversation. 3. To make a question, put can at the beginning of the sentence. Can you start tomorrow? Can you work on weekends? 4. Use can or cant to answer questions. Kate: Can Rich work on weekends? Dave: Yes, he can. Kate: Can he cook? Dave: No, he cant. Grammar 2: Modals 1. We use should or shouldnt to offer advice or to make a suggestion about something important. Words like should, have to, must, and can are called modals. We use the modal plus the simple form of the verb. Frankie, you should put on your jacket. Its cold. Ana, you shouldnt eat so fast. Its not good for you. 2. Use have to or must to describe something that is necessary or required. Dave, you have to get a life! Frankie, you must bring your homework tomorrow. Have to and must have the same meaning. 3. Use dont or doesnt have to for something that is not required. You dont have to come to the party at eight. Come anytime. Maggie doesnt have to finish her homework now. 4. Use can to offer to do something. Kate: Can I help you? Chris: Yes, I need a hotel reservation. 5. Use can to make a request. Kate: Sam, can you come here for a second? Sam: Sure. What is it? 6. Use can to describe things people are able to do. Emi: Can Rich cook? Dave: No, he cant. Remember that can, should, and must dont change their form. We dont say he cans, she shoulds, or he musts. We do say, I have to, he has to. Grammar 3: Review of Verb Tenses 1. Lets review the verb be and the simple present tense. Dave: Is Emi a good student? Jin: Yes, she is. She studies every night, at least she says she does. Dave: How about you? Hows your English? Jin: English isnt easy for me. I study hard, but I dont get very good grades. Dave: Study with Emi. I bet your grades will get better! 2. We can use the verb be to talk about nationalities, occupations, or to describe someone. Theyre Italian. Were programmers. Emi is a good student. Sam is tall. 3. We use the simple present tense for actions that are true in general. Kate: How many languages do you speak anyway? Luis: I speak Spanish, English, and French, and I understand a little German. Kate: Thats amazing! 4. We use the simple present tense for things that happen again and again. Dave: I get here at 6 every morning. Kate: You get up at 6? Dave: No, I get here at 6. I always get up around 5. Kate: Thats early! 5. We use the simple present tense to tell facts and with verbs such as like and need. Salads at the Rock cost $5. Chris likes Daves hamburgers. I need a soda. Look again at the 3 sentences above. Remember that one form of the simple present tense is different. Which one is different?

6. Lets review the present continuous. Use the present continuous for actions that are happening now. Paul: Maggie is studying for her math test. She cant come to the phone right now. Greg: OK. Ill call her later. We also use the present continuous to talk about activities in the very near future. Greg: Mr. Arnello, were leaving for our swim meet tomorrow at 6:00 a.m. Could you give Maggie the message? Paul: Yes, Ill tell her. 7. We can use be going to and will to talk about future plans. Dave: Are you going to see The Last Mile tonight? Kate: Yes, Im going to meet my brother at 7 oclock. Dave: You have a brother in the city? I didnt know that. Kate: I dont right now. Hes moving here in August. Hes in town to look for an apartment. Dave: Hey! Thats great. Kate: Yeah, Im really happy about it. It will be nice to have some family in the city.

8. To talk about the past, we use was or were or the simple past tense. Remember, was and were are the past tense of be. Luis was in Mexico last summer. Ana and Chris were at the office last night. Luis went to Mexico last summer. Ana and Chris worked at the office until 8 oclock last night.
