Big Fish: Too x Either

This marvelous movie is fantastic for activities because it is full of complete micro stories completely contextualized. This one I used for a basic grammar point, contrasting the use of TOO and EITHER.




I. Answer the questions about Ling and Ping, the Siamese Sisters. Decide which alternative is better, according to the movie segment. Then answer the questions, using too or either.


1. Ling can / can't sing. What about Ping?

.....................................................

2. Ling has / doesn't have two arms. What about Ping?
....................................................

3. Ping is / isn't wearing a blue dress. What about Ling?

4. Ling is / isn't wearing a red rose in the hair. What about Ping?

5. Ling was / wasn't very happy about the performance. What about Ping?

6. Ping was / wasn't surprised to see the soldier. What about Ling?
