Self-learning

Household chores. Are you those kinds of rare people who love doing chores? I’m not! I think the only thing I’ll love to do is cooking but only on the weekends and not all the weekends. I mean very rarely. 🙂

Here they are the steps to your guided self-learning of the week

Self-study: watch the videos for pronunciation and read the text for some structure guidance.

… + Ving or To infinitive

  1. I love…
  2. I like…
  3. I hate…

Eg: I hate doing the chores./I hate to do the chores.

How often?

  • Never
  • Rarely
  • Seldom
  • Occasionally
  • Sometimes
  • Frequently
  • Usually
  • Always
  • Once/twice/three times a week/month/year
  • Every day/week/month

Eg: I never dust the furniture but I always make the bed.

Ving…

  1. Hanging the clothes out to dry is the worst chore.
  2. Making the bed every morning is the best way to start a routine.
  3. Washing up is tiresome.

Connect the dots – independent practice: do the activities suggested

Articulate: find a way to express your ideas related to that topic. It can be speaking about that to someone, writing a response to a post related anywhere on the internet, or creating any piece of art and exposing it to someone using the target language.

  • Which chores do you hate?
  • Which do you love?
  • Is doing the chores something important for you?
  • How often do you do the chores?

If you want to challenge yourself, film or record yourself answering some of the questions below.
