Live Wire 2 Units 1 to 15

Choose one of the lines below and act out preparing to do that thing until your partner guesses what the future action is going to be. To make “going to” the right tense, don’t actually start doing the thing below (which would be “You are cooking…” etc).

  • You are going to cook a meal.
  • You are going to drive.
  • You are going to fish.
  • You are going to get dressed./ You are going to put on your clothes.
  • You are going to have a bath.
  • You are going to have a shower.
  • You are going to kick a ball./ You are going to take a penalty./ You are going to play football./ You are going to play soccer.
  • You are going to lift weights./ You are going to do weight training.
  • You are going to listen to a CD.

Ask about any you don’t understand, miming things before that action each time to show that you understand the explanation.

Ask two “going to” questions about your partner’s plans like those above for each of the times below. You get one point for each “Yes, I am” answer.

  • later today
  • tomorrow
  • at the weekend
  • next week
  • someday
