Happy holidays

Emma's jealous!

Welcome to Unit 8, where we'll discover some exciting places around the world - and learn some grammar and vocabulary along the way.

Let's meet Emma again. She's jealous because her friends are always going away on exciting trips - and she is stuck at home in London. Her friend Mike, has sent her a postcard: where is it from? Watch the video to find out...

I'm so jealous. My friends are always going on holiday. Look at all the postcards they've sent me. I wish I was going on a trip somewhere... an exciting adventure to somewhere exotic like the Himalayas or to see the Taj Mahal...

Look: Mike sent me a postcard today. Let's see what it says.

"Hi Emma! Hello from St Petersburg in Russia! Staying in a wonderful hotel. You would love it. The hotel is right by the river. Wish you were here, love Mike."

That sounds wonderful. I do need a holiday but do I want to go there? Hmmm...

To do

So, Emma's postcard came from St Petersburg. Did you notice how many times Emma said the little words a, an and the? Watch the video again and count them. Was it...

1)      a – 3; an 2; the – 6

2)      a – 4; an 1; the – 5

3)      a – 3; an 1; the – 4

You can find the answer on the next page.
