Couples Retreat: Have Got (Noun) x Have Got To (Verb)

his movie has very good moments, but it could have been better. I used this scene to contrast the use of GET (followed by nouns or verbs).

The verb TO GET had different uses and meanings. In this exercise we will see the difference of the verb To Get, meaning To Have.

Ex: I('ve) got a bad feeling = I have a bad feeling.

I ('ve) got to study for the test = I have to study for the test.


I. Talk to a partner:

1- Would you like to go to a resort for couple skill building if your relationship were cold and distant? Why (not)?

2. What must a place like this have in order to make your vacation and relationship also pleasurable?

3. What wouldn't you like the resort to have?

4. Do you believe that you can save a bored relationship if the couple go to a couple skill building resort? Explain it.



II. Look at the list below and place the information under the correct column (GOT + Nouns or GOT + Verbs).

FUN - SUN - YOUR KAYAKING - YOUR WINDSURFING - YOUR CANOEING - YOUR JET SKIING - COUPLE SKILL BUILDING - SNORKELING - A JOB - STAY THIN - A GAMBLING PROBLEM - MAKE VIDEOS - OTHER OBLIGATIONS


GOT + NOUNS : Ex: FUN,
