Who watched the Japan rugby team at the RWC?? It was quite a show, wasn’t it? I watched some and watched some highlights. Our team upset the South Africa team. What a shocker!! Ayumu Goromaru showed Japan that rugby was an amazing sport and that it was full of challenges and excitement. I have heard from many people that they are now fascinated by rugby and want their kids to join. This is because Ayumu Goromaru captured the hearts of the people. He is not only serious and focused, but also strong and energetic. Way to go boys!
Last time I asked you about these time expressions:
ago , before
eg. I met her 3 weeks ago.
I met her 3 weeks before.
in, later, after
eg. I will go in 2 days.
eg. I will go 2 days later.
eg. I will go 2 days after.
AGO and IN are from the present point in time. LATER, BEFORE and AFTER are from a different point in time which must be explained.
If today is October 16th:
I will see you in 2 days.
This means that I will see you on October 18th.
I will meet them in three weeks and two days later we will fly to Sapporo.
This means that I will meet them on NOVEMBER 6th (in three weeks) and we will fly to Sapporo on November 8th (2 days later).
He called me three days ago.
This means that we spoke on the phone on October 14th.
They bought their tickets two weeks ago and three days before that, they decided to go!
This means that they bought tickets on October 2nd and they decided to go on September 30th.
Yes, it is a little confusing but quite important.
Today’s challenge is this:
|Regular Adjective||Extreme Adjective|
|awful, terrible, horrible|
|huge, gigantic, giant|
|wonderful, fantastic, excellent|
Can you fill in the regular adjectives in this chart???
