Communication Practice

You are going on a hiking holiday tour for 2 weeks and you pack a suitcase with a number of things. Discuss in small groups what you should take with you and make a list of what you would pack (when your list is done consider how many of the items on it are uncountable nouns).

Another area that has a number of uncountable words is personal qualities and skills. For example, we might say that a secretary should have intelligence, reliability, charm and enthusiasm. These are all uncountable nouns. Choose from the list and say what qualities these people should have. Say whether they need some, a lot or a bit of the quality.

Jobs: businessman, nurse, teacher, explorer, actor, athlete, policeman, receptionist

Qualities: patience, determination, goodwill, charm, stamina, reliability, loyalty, energy, experience, commitment, talent, creativity, intelligence, training, vocation

 

3. Practise asking for these everyday items Could I have...? (decide whether you must say a or some): vinegar duster needle thread cellotape tea-bag polish
