ACTIVITY # 3: Review Language in Use
PURPOSE: To review the use of time clauses. INSTRUCTIONS: Work in pairs. Read and listen carefully the explanation about Time Clauses. Discuss the examples presented on the next slide.

ACTIVITY # 3: Review Language in use: TIME CLAUSES
Phrases that begin with words such as: while, when, whenever, before, after, as soon as, until, since, etc. are classified as TIME CLAUSES. Time clauses are a type of dependant (subordinate) clause and are usually paired with a main (independent) clause to form a complete sentence. For example, consider this sentence: “While I was eating lunch, the fire alarm rang.” In this case, the time clause, “while I was eating my lunch,” lets us know when the main clause, “the fire alarm rang,” occurred. Look at the examples of time clauses in next slide. Notice that when a time clause appears at the beginning of a sentence, it is separated from the main clause by a comma. When the sentence begins with the main clause, no comma is needed.

ACTIVITY # 3: REVIEW LANGUAGE IN USE EXAMPLES OF TIME AND MAIN CLAUSES
MAIN CLAUSE TIME CLAUSE The phone rang while we were talking. I ate dinner after watching TV. She hasn't stopped swimming since she got in the pool. TIME CLAUSE MAIN CLAUSE While I was sick , I missed a lot of school. Before Paul went to bed , he called Mary to say goodnight. After we finished working, we went out for a drink.
