This 6-page file includes:

~A reading about four friends who go out to the movies. As the friends cannot decide on what film to see, the girls see one film while the boys see another. One film turns out to be great- the other not so much! This reading is predominantly in the imperfect and preterite tenses for students to see how they are used in context. Reading features a full glossary of new words.

~The same reading but with the verbs highlighted for context and NO glossary for differentiated reading.

~A worksheet based on the reading with 7 short answer questions and a short writing exercise in the past tense to be completed in class or for homework.

~Answer key.

Activity idea: After reading the story in pairs, students can take turns describing films they have seen to their partner using the past tenses. Based on their description their partner can try to guess which film they are talking about!
