The BFG: Imperative Forms with NEVER


This is a lovely movie about how physical appearances can mislead us into not knowing the real/whole person.















GRAMMAR TIP:

Negative Imperatives Using Never / Don't Ever

Ex: 
Never do that again.
Never leave your wallet in your car.
Never steal from anyone.
Don't ever lie to anyone.
Don't ever travel without your documents.


Work in small groups:

I. Make a list of 5 things that you are never allowed to do in your house. What have your parents told you never do. (Or that you tell your children never do)

Ex: Never play with fire.

Share your list with the class. Check what  task is the most recurrent task  students must never do at home.



II. Make  predictions. What do you think are the three rules all children have to follow in an orphanage. Write sentences starting with NEVER.

III. Watch the segment and check your answers.

Answer Key:

Never get out of bed
Never go to the window
Never look behind the curtains
