Unit 3 Hobbies

What are hobbies?

  • Hobbies are the indoor or outdoor activities we do in our free time.
  • They can help us socialise, relax, learn new things and practice our skills.
  • Mental hobbies include reading, painting, playing chess and listening to music.
  • Physical hobbies include gardening, travelling, playing basketball and hiking.


Talking about Weather
Page 134.  Phrases such as:

  • Have you heard the weather forecast?
  • What does the weather forecast / report say?
  • We'll have fine weather for the next few days?
  • What will it be after the clear weather?
  • What's the weather going to be like?
  • How long will this hot weather last?
  • I hope it stays nice for the whole month
  • It's wonderful weather here / after the rain.
  • Autumn is the best season here.
  • Its hot like an oven in this part of the country.
  • The weather here is quite changeable.
  • It seems to be clearing up
  • It has turned out to be a nice day.
  • It says a storm may come soon.


Making a Request
Page 138.  Phrases such as:

  • I was wondering whether you could...?
  • May I trouble you for a …?
  • May I trouble you to …?
  • May I have the pleasure of...?
  • Do you mind if I ask you …?
  • I'd be grateful if you could...?
  • I'd appreciate it a lot of you could …?


Borrow or Lend?

Please remember that we say "Can you LEND me a pen?" or "Can I BORROW your pen?" not "Can you borrow me your pen?".  It is a common mistake I hear in class.
