THE “BIKINI” CHALLENGE (1B2) (OPTIONAL)

THIS IS AN OPTIONAL ACTIVITY I DEVISED FOR YOU TO TRY DURING THE HOLIDAY OR AT ANY OTHER TIME…..

AS WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT “LIVE ENTERTAINMENT” LAST  WEDNESDAY……DO YOU KNOW THIS MAN?

HE´S A BRITISH CHART-TOPPING STAR CALLED ED SHEERAN. HE PERFORMED IN MADRID AND BARCELONA LAST WEEKEND AS PART OF A TOUR AROUND EUROPE. ALL THE TICKETS HAD BEEN SOLD OUT.

HIS LATEST HIT IS CALLED “SHAPE OF YOU” AND IT REMINDED ME OF THE “BIKINI” CHALLENGE, THAT IS TO SAY, THE TIME WHEN YOU WANT TO GET IN SHAPE BEFORE THE SUMMER BATHING SUIT SEASON STARTS…. MANY  PEOPLE GET OBSESSED WITH LOSING WEIGHT, START GOING TO THE GYM AND GO ON DIETS BACAUSE SUMMER IS ALMOST THERE AND THEY WANT TO LOOK GOOD IN THEIR BIKINIS.

WATCH THE VIDEO, WHICH STARTS IN A GYM…. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE STORY IS ABOUT?

CHECK YOUR ANSWERS:

ED SHEERAN´S PERFORMANCES IN SPAIN  WERE SOLD OUT MONTHS AGO

SELL OUT= ALL BE SOLD  : THIS IS A PHRASAL VERB

IN YOUR BOOK THERE´S A REVISION  OF PHRASAL VERBS (page 144)

key:

WHICH TYPE IS “SELL OUT”? TYPE 1, TYPE 2 OR TYPE 3? WHY?

    Hi Carmen, I was wondering if you could share with us the key of the vocabulary bank: phrasal vebs (pg162) and looking after yourself (pg 163) because I can’t find it =( anywhere!
    Thanks 😉
