Reminder, remind, remember

In the video we heard the word 'reminder':

"Back home with her family and a reminder of why she loves it here."

'Reminder' is a message, written or spoken, that can make you think of something you may have forgotten.

E.g. I was sent a reminder about paying my water bill.

'Remind' is to make someone think of something they may forget.

E.g. Can you remind me to buy some milk?

'Remember' is to be able to think about information from the past.

E.g. I remember when I went on holiday for the first time. It was

very exciting.

Now complete the sentences with 'reminder', 'remind' or 'remember'.

1. I can't ______________ where I put my car keys.

2. A: Will you ______________ me to call my boss about getting time off?

B: Yes, sure.

3. A: Do you ______________ when we went to the beach last summer?

B: Yes! It was such a lovely hot day.

4. I received another ______________ about paying my rent.

Phrases with 'act'

In the video we heard the phrase 'juggling act' which means a difficult task or situation which involves doing many things at the same time.

"Achieng's life both here in Kenya and back in London is now a complicated juggling act."

Here are some more phrases with the word 'act':

put on an act: to behave in a way that is seen as false

sharpen up your act: to improve your behaviour

be a hard act to follow: to be so good at something that anyone who performs after you will not seem as good as you.

get in on the act: to get involved in something that is already successful

Now complete the sentences with the correct phrase. The form of the phrase may need to be changed.

1. Have you seen the new business Paul has set up? It has been very successful. We need to

________________.
