Wanderlust: No Matter...



This is a funny movie that went unnoticed in movie theaters. I recommend it, though. This scene is really nice and my Thomas Prime 5 students loved it.


No matter often introduces clauses in statements that express frustration or encouragement. No matter is commonly combined with who, what, when, why, where, or the intensifier how +  adjective or adverb.


I. Complete the blanks with the correct "no matter" clause:

video

1. __________ the couple do, they will always argue.

2. They disagreed about several issues, ___________________ hard they tried to agree with each other.

3. _______________ tired they were, they kept on driving all day long.

4. They were very tired during the night. They decided they would sleep in a hotel, _________________ it was located.

5. They didn't want to stop during the trip, _____________ they would arrive to their destination.

6. _____________ much they sang and laughed, they would always fight during the trip.

7. No matter ____________ started the fight, they never reached an agreement.


II. Discuss these questions.

1. Why do you think they fight so much?

2. How natural is it for lovers to travel together and argue with each other? Have you ever experienced it?

3. Do you prefer to travel withou previous planning and sleep wherever there is a hotel or do you prefer to have everything reserved by the time you go traveling? Why?


III. SONG - Before you listen to the song try to complete the blanks with "no matter " clauses:
