Here’s the Powerpoint we saw in class to practise the functional language you need for your oral exam. These structures are VERY useful when you speak to English people so REMEMBER them and WHEN to use them. This is when all your work from Básico 2 now starts to make sense. Good luck next week.

Here’s the Powerpoint we looked at in class to practise rules.
You can also practise the structures on the Pre-intermediate English File website by doing this exercise and this one.
Another way to practise using the same website is by doing the text builder exercises. Try to recreate any of the texts from the coursebook. That way, you practise structures, vocabulary and by recreating a text, you are practising writing too!

If you’re confused about all the uses of ‘will/won’t', then here’s some extra practice. First of all, look at this Powerpoint about offers, promises and decisions and guess what the sentences are.
You can do some followup activities here and here from the book English File Third Edition.
Now look at these exercises from the Oxford New English File Pre-intermediate website. Click here and here to practise ‘will’ for offers, promises and decisions, and here and here to practise will/won’t for predictions.
And for the best promise made in a film, here’s Whitney Houston singing, ‘I Will Always Love You‘ in ‘The Bodyguard‘.

And for some grammar practice, just visit the New English File site, where you have an online activity.
