World of English
Both have and have got are used to talk about illnesses as well as possession (things we own), relationships (e.g. family
members) and characteristics (e.g. brown eyes). Have got is more common in British English and have is more common
in American English, although both are used and understood everywhere English is spoken. The two versions are formed
differently in questions and negatives:
Ive got a pet rabbit. / I have a pet rabbit.
Have you got a girlfriend? / Do you have a girlfriend?
I havent got any money. / I dont have any money.
Be careful: have got cant be used in every situation and tense that you can use have, for example: I had an accident,
NOT Id got an accident, and you cant use contractions with have like Ive a car.

9 Pronunciation: Question intonation and silent e

A 2.13 Look at AS 2.13 on p. 157. Listen again and notice how the intonation in each question goes up
or down at the end. Complete the rules.

leader Reed says, Tomorrow were helping to evacuate a population of about 2,000 inhabitants
and were filming all the action. I cant wait! The teams can go right inside tornadoes in their
special 14,000-pound vehicle, Dominator. Its an exciting and very dangerous profession it
takes a lot of courage to be a storm chaser.
After that, they have to decide what to cut to make the programme. And then, next week,
theyre travelling to Missouri to chase more tornadoes and answer their big questions: What
happens in the centre of a tornado? How can we predict or stop them? Well, as Bob Dylan
sings, The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind!

Not impossible, but difficult. At home its only me and my husband.
My clothes are always organised, but his are not! Sometimes we have
problems, but I usually just ignore my husbands part.

enormous and hers is not. Our children are not very organised, but
they tidy their wardrobes I never look at theirs! My sons is full of
sport equipment too balls, rackets, skis, etc. Horrible!

In my house, we dont say mine or yours. Everything is ours. Our

Most verbs, add -s: knows, speaks, plays.

Verbs ending in -ch, -sh, -ss, -x, or -o, add -es:
ch watches; sh washes; ss kisses; x mixes; o goes.
Verbs ending in consonant + -y: cut -y + -ies: study = studies.

The auxiliary do ends with o, thats why it takes -es (does) in the third
person. Why does Superman have an ?
When we use the auxiliary, the main verb goes back to the infinitive: Because he is the third person.
He works here. He doesnt work here. He hates kryptonite, he loves Lois
She likes it. She doesnt like it. and he doesnt like bad guys!

Do they work near here? Yes, they do. / No, they dont. How do they go to school?

To form a yes / no question use: To form a Wh- question use:

Auxiliary verb (do / does) + subject + infinitive (+ object) = Question word + auxiliary verb (do / does) + subject +
(O) infinitive (+ object) = (O)
Short answers use: do / does or dont / doesnt.

3 Frequency Adverbs

I sometimes go to work at around 5.15am. I go to the gym on Tuesday. R Be careful:

I go to the hairdressers every Saturday. Im driving to the hairdressers. (now)
We usually buy food after work. Were not going to the market today. (breaking routine)
I go to the university. Im working on my maths project. (developing)
Use the present simple for a daily habit, routine, facts, or scheduled events.
Use the present continuous for an action happening at the moment or a break in a routine. We also use it to describe long processes
in progress that arent necessarily happening right now, e.g., Im working on a degree in Computing (but Im not studying today).
Adverbs of frequency and time phrases can help you decide when to use present continuous or present simple.

Present simple Present continuous

always, sometimes, usually, often, every day, at the moment, at this moment, just, right
occasionally, never, first, next, then now, just now, now, still
Verbs for emotion, senses or mental states
These verbs are not used in present continuous. Use the present simple.
Note: People sometimes use the phrase Im loving it! in informal conversation.

Correct Incorrect
He believes you. Hes believing you.
She doesnt understand. Shes not understanding.
They like this party. Theyre liking this party.
Do you remember everything? Are you remembering everything?
Do you remember everything?
More verbs for emotion, senses or mental states:
adore, appear, be, believe, dislike, hate, have, know, like, look, love, mean, prefer, remember, see, seem, smell, sound, surprise, understand, want.

3 Present continuous for future

At the moment / now Future It is very common to use present continuous to talk about plans and events in
