Try it Take turns asking and answering questions from page 38, #3. Give reasons for your answer. Example Sam: Were you in class yesterday? Alex: No, I wasnt. It was a weekend! Additional Questions Were you at school yesterday? Where was your mother/ father at breakfast? Was I in your dream last night?
Before and after (mixing it up) Knowing how to say how you have gotten better is a good skill to have. It is in many interview questions, and it helps keep you focused. Think of 3-5 ways you have changed since middle school. How were you then? How are you now? Example I was really short. Now Im just short. I wasnt a good student in middle school, but now I am.
