“You’ll hate the weather”

“I think you are right/ You could be right/ Actually, I love the rain”

“I’m going on a blind date”

“I think you’ll be quite nervous”

“I’m sure I’ll be VERY nervous”

Part Two: Big life changes- Speaking and listening

You are going to listen to three people who have made changes in their lives:

 Clare changed from being a geography teacher to being a plumber

 Kevin changed from being a factory supervisor to being a house husband and looking after the kids while his wife goes back to work

 Lorna and Ian gave up their jobs in the City to run a small hotel in the country

How do they feel about their new lives (as compared to their old lives), and what might they do in the future?

Listen and check. Which of your predictions were correct?
