English Module (Part 4)

Tape-script and key:
Nigel isn’t very tidy, so his room is usually in a mess before Mrs Greenfield does the housework. Look, there’s a CD in the wardrobe and there are some magazines and a sweater under the bed. Nigel’s jeans are on the bedside table and his socks are on the stereo. There are no cassettes on the stereo. They’re in the chest of drawers. And look, there are no pens on the desk. Guess where they are! On the chest of drawers of course. There’s a shirt under the desk and... that’s really strange: a shoe on the com¬puter. By the way, where’s the other shoe? There it is on the bed! There are some books under the armchair, and if you’re looking for a pencil there are some under the chair. What about your room? Is it as messy as Nigel’s room! I hope not.

3b. Pair work. Students practise saying where the various items are. Move around the classroom and help them, if necessary.
