1 Unit 11 USING SEQUENCE MARKERS AND IMPERATIVES

2 Why do English people use the following words? afteras soon as beforeimmediately meanwhileafter a whilefinallymeantime nextafter thatfirstlast nowthenafterwardsat the end followinglaterat the beginningat first

3 To help you follow directions! Sequence markers help the listener follow the directions you are giving or the story you are telling.

4 Can you use some of the following words and phrases to teach your professor how to make a nice Ramien? afteras soon as beforeimmediately meanwhileafter a whilefinallymeantime nextafter thatfirstlast nowthenafterwardsat the end followinglaterat the beginningat first *drain the water* pour the noodles into a bowl* add a boiled egg * add the noodles to the water * boil some water* stir the noodles

5 Here’s an example…. First, boil some water. Then, add the noodles to the water, and, after a while, stir the noodles. Next, drain the water. Following that, pour the noodles into a bowl. Finally, add a boiled egg. Where do the sequence markers typically belong in the sentence?

6 That’s right! The sequence marker typically comes before the verb. First, boil some water. Then, add the noodles to the water, and, after a while, stir the noodles. Also, why are there no personal pronouns like ‘you’?

7 That’s right! With imperative (or, ‘command’) style, we don’t use personal pronouns. First, boil some water. Then, add the noodles to the water, and, after a while, stir the noodles. One more question: how would we make this more of a narrative (or, ‘storytelling’) style?

8 Right again! (Wow! You must be some kind of genius or something!) To change the style to a narrative (or ‘storytelling’) one, just add personal pronouns and change it to the past tense. First, we boiled some water. Then, we added the noodles to the water, and, after a while, we stirred the noodles. One more question: how would we make this more of a narrative (or, ‘storytelling’) style?
