Example: The most important thing to me is to be healthy. … Students discuss whether they think these sayings are true.
Tape script 1. Mm, well, I’ve got a good job. I work very hard and I earn a good salary. I’ll be honest. I like spending money, especially on clothes. Why not? I’ve earned it, haven’t I? B
2. Well, people think too much about money---they think money brings you happiness. But you don’t need money that much … I think the most important thing is to try to help other people. I mean people who really need help. I am in two charities. We collect money for children in poor countries … C
3. I’ve been out of work for five years now. It’s very difficult to get a job at my age, you know. And I’ve had a lot of personal problems. I don’t like begging, but I have to. I think a lot of people don’t know how easy it is to get into my situation. A
4. Personally, I think it’s important to give money to charity, especially to charities for children. I mean most of us have some extra money, don’t we? I’m not very rich, but I try to give as much money as I can. D
3. Complete the sentences with the verbs in the box in the correct form. Key Words borrow, collect, earn, lend, lose, make, need, save, spend
Ask students to read the Key Words and find three pairs of ‘near opposites’ (borrow/lend, save/spend, lose/win). Remind students of the work they did on word stress in the previous unit and ask them where the stress comes in borrow and collect.
Example He lost his wallet yesterday when he was in a crowded bus. 1. If you ____ money, you can ask a friend to ____ you some or _______ money from a band. need lend borrow
2. His company ______ a lot of money and so he _____ a good salary. 3. She is careful with money, she does not ______ very much. She _____ ￡ 40 a week. 4. At the moment she __________ money for charity. makes earns spend saves is collecting
Look back at the list in Exercise 1 and divide the values into ‘material’ (e.g. having a big car) and ‘non- material’ values, e.g. (having friends). Write these in two columns and elicit more suggestions of material and non-material values to add to the columns. Step 1
In groups, choose three material values and three nonmaterial values that are important for everybody. Then exchange ideas, justifying your decisions. Then write an article to narrate( 叙述 ) your own choice and the reason why you do so. Step 2
