In this class, we will...
- listen to 16 expressions used by football managers.
- decide when they are used (before, during, or after the match).
- group the expressions by tone (for example: inspirational, critical...) Private access
1. Listen, and choose the correct option from A-C below:
|a) I expected you to win||b) I'm expecting you to win||c) I expect you'll win|
b) "I'm expecting you to win today lads."
2. Do you know the meaning of expect? Definition Here
Notice how expression a) and b) have 'to' like the definition above. But expression c) doesn't have 'to' and means 'I imagine this will happen' because it is normally what happens, and so it's what I anticipate.
3. Now look at the following expressions and use a dictionary to check their meaning:
|A) had a bad run||B) their money's worth||C) keep that in mind||D) a comeback|
|E) to cheer||F) far from pleased||G) pat on the back|
|H) don't stand a chance||I) don't give them an inch||J) wasn't our day|
1. I(2) 2. C(3) 3. E(4) 4. A(6) 5. F(7) 6. B(9) 7. J(12) 8. H(13) 9. D(15) 10. G(15)
