4 La forma negativa si costruisce con do not e il verbo all'infinito senza to. Alla terza persona singolare si usa does not nello stesso modo. I do not work she does not work Io non lavoro lei non lavora Nel parlato e nei testi scritti informali si usano le forme contratte don't e doesn't. I don't work she doesn't work Quando si usa? Realtà che sono sempre vere/ verità assolute The sun rises in the east Il sole sorge a est. Azioni abituali Every day I wake up at 7.30 Ogni mattina mi alzo alle 7:30.

6 always--> I always get up at 7:00. often--> Pat often goes to the cinema. usually --> It usually rains when I go on holiday! sometimes--> We sometimes eat pizza for lunch. rarely --> Jane rarely listens to jazz. never --> My bus never arrives on time. Il verbo have, spesso seguito da got, corrisponde al verbo avere in italiano con accezione di possesso: Forma affermativa: I/you/we/they have (got) he/she/it has (got) Forma negativa: I/you/we/they haven't (got) he/she/it has't (got) Forma interrogativa: have I/you/we/they (got)? Has he/she/it (got)? Secondo le regole del British English, come riportato quì sopra, essendo have un verbo ausiliare come be non necessita nella costruzione di negative e interrogative di do e does tuttavia nell'inglese americano il verbo have viene usato come un verbo qualunque e usa per tanto do e does nelle negative e nelle interrogative. *Nota Bene: il verbo have è ausiliare solo quando esprime possesso! Esempio: I haven't a car --> possesso I don't usually have lunch --> uso particolare (fare colazione) Exercises Put the verbs into the correct form.

7 1. I (to like) lemonade very much. 2. The girls always (to listen) to pop music. 3. Janet never (to wear) jeans. 4. Mr Smith (to teach) Spanish and French. 5.

They are eleven. 3. She writes a letter. 4. I speak Italian. 5. Danny phones his father on Sundays. Questions Make questions. 1. you / to speak / English 2. when / he / to go / home 3. they / to clean / the bathroom 4. where / she / to ride / her bike 5. Billy / to work / in the supermarket

8 IL PRESENT Continuous Il Present continuous si forma con il presente di be seguito dal verbo in -ing. I am relaxing? he is relaxing? I verbi in -e perdono la -e quando si aggiunge -ing: like liking decide deciding write writing I verbi monosillabici che terminano con una consonante preceduta da una sola vocale raddoppiano la consonante quando si aggiunge -ing: sit sitting swim swimming dig digging I verbi in -ie cambiano -ie in -y. lie lying tie tying die dying Quando usiamo il Present Continuous? Per esprimere azioni che accadono al momento What are you doing? We are playing cards Per riferirsi a un'azione prossima nel futuro e già stabilita I am going to the beach tomorrow Con always quando ci si lamenta di azioni o situazioni ricorrenti e fastidiose You are always forgetting your keys!

40 Reading and comprehension The historian Martin Davies has recently written a fascinating book about the Pankhurst family. Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst founded the Women s Social and Political Union in 1903 and, together with her daughters, was a leader of the movement to obtain votes for women. But although they worked together, relationships within the family were surprisingly bad. Emmeline married a lawyer, Richard Pankhurst, the local hero of the Manchester workers. Together, they did a great deal to improve workers conditions, but Davies tells us how the Pankhurst girls and their brother, Harry, suffered from their parents preoccupation with their social work because they spent so little time at home. Emmeline also insisted that her daughters help her in her work. The two older daughters, Sylvia and Adele, organised female industrial workers in the North; Emmeline and Christabel concentrated on upper-class women in London, where their campaign became fashionable. The demonstrations they organised on the streets of London were a very unusual sight, with ladies wearing long white dresses and carrying silver arrows for freedom and red banners. Men s rigid opposition to their demands made the women s tactics more aggressive. This in turn caused the Government to use stronger and stronger methods against them, for example sending them to prison and forcing them to eat when they went on hunger strike. The Pankhurst women were under great pressure and Christabel was the first to give up, moving to Paris, where she wrote articles supporting the cause, but no longer taking an active part. In 1914, Mrs Pankhurst had an argument with Adele, who was sent to Australia. During the First World War, only Sylvia continued to fight for women s rights. Success did come at the end of the war in 1918, with women winning the right to vote at the age of twenty-eight. But the Pankhurst family never recovered. Mrs Pankhurst died in London soon after; the daughters lived long but separate lives in different parts of the world. 1. How many children did Mrs Pankhurst have? a) One b) Two c) Three d) Four 2. Mr and Mrs Pankhurst were both dedicated to social reform. TRUE / FALSE 3. A suffragette was a) a man who suffered because of his wife. b) a woman who dressed in white. c) a woman who fought for the right to vote. d) a female industrial worker. 4. The suffragette movement a) was always aggressive. b) became progressively aggressive. c) was always peaceful. d) was violent. 5. The Government s reaction to the suffragette movement was a) positive. b) indifferent. c) hostile. d) encouraging. 6. Christabel totally abandoned the suffragette cause when she moved to Paris. TRUE / FALSE

41 7. Which adjective does not describe the Pankhurst family relationships? a) aggressive b) close c) complicated d) difficult 8. Sylvia last saw Adele a) after the First World War. b) during the First World War. c) before the First World War. 9. All the Pankhurst women died soon after winning the right to vote. TRUE / FALSE 10. Where was this passage probably taken from? a) an encyclopedia b) a history book c) a magazine article d) a novel

46 President Jones might win the next election Può darsi che il presidente Jones vinca le prossime elezioni I may not have time to finish tonight Può darsi non abbia tempo di finire oggi * Alcuni ritengono che may si più formale e che might indicherebbe maggiore incertezza could Anche could soprattutto con il verbo be può esprimere incertezza. Deduzioni: certezza e impossibilità (must e can't) can't indica spesso impossibilità: President Jones can't win the next election. Il presidente Jones non può vincere le prossime elezioni / Non è possibile che il presidente Jones vinca le prossime elezioni. Quando si deduce dai fatti il grado di certezza o impossibilità di un evento, si usano must e can't: He must be stuck in the traffic Dev'essere bloccato nel traffico She can't be in France! I saw her today! Non può essere/non è possibile che sia in Francia! L'ho vista oggi Obbligo (must e have to) Per dire che qualcosa è necessario si può usare must o have to: must è un obbligo che viene imposto o che ci si impone I must finish my homework before 8.00 Devo finire i compiti prima delle 8:00 have to è un obbligo che viene dalla situazione che lo richiede

It's automatic Non devi/ Non è necessario accendere il riscaldamento.

Penso che dovresti parlarne con il tuo insegnante. Opinioni: I think the police should arrest hooligans. Credo che la polizia dovrebbe arrestare gli hooligans. Previsioni: They should arrive here at about Dovrebbero arrivare qui verso le 6:30 should può essere sostituito da ought to (anche se questo è meno frequente) I think you ought to talk to your teacher about it. Con significato simile a should e ought to si può usare per dare consigli had better che di solito si contrae in 'd better I think you had better talk to your teacher about it.
