NB. Unless your students have a lot of imagination, you might need to change the things below to be true for you. Read out the sentences once to get them to respond, then read through one more time to elicit the answers, maybe onto the board.
First of all, sorry for missing the last two weeks of classes – That’s okay/ No problem/ Don’t worry about it/ Never mind
That was because I was having my first baby- Congratulations!
Here is a photo- That’s so cute!/ She’s so cute/ Ahhhh
Unfortunately she is still back in Japan with my wife- That’s a shame/ That’s a pity/ Oh, what a pity/ Oh dear/ I feel so sorry for you
(whispered very quietly) But they are coming to Korea soon- Pardon/ I’m sorry I didn’t hear you
But they are coming to Korea soon- That’s good news/ I’m relieved to hear that
Anyway, let’s get started. Please write this down. “Tuesday the 15th of September 2009. Headway Pre-Intermediate functions review…” – Just a minute/ Just a second/ Just a moment
Hope you enjoy the rest of the course- Same to you/ Thank you
Right, what are we going to do next?- I don’t know/ I haven’t a clue
Only joking! So I believe you are studying Unit 12- That’s right
