Te invito a leer y entender el siguiente texto:

I’m a travel writer. I usually travel alone, but my family sometimes comes with me. It’s difficult because they always have a lot of bags –in our trip to Ecuador now, there are eight people and about fifteen bags! In my sister’s bags there are three jackets, four or five jumpers, seven pairs of trousers and two dresses. There are six or seven books too. She never travels without books. In my husband’s bag there’s a pair of boots, a pair of shoes and a pair of sandals! And his maps – he loves maps and he always takes maps on trips. But when I travel alone, I take a very small suitcase. There’s a pocket for my travel documents and inside there are two parts, one for clothes and one for my laptop. I never travel without my laptop! That’s it!


Recuerda que Utilizamos “there is” y “there are” para expresar la existencia de algo, tal y como se hace en español con el verbo “haber, usando “is” o “are” dependiendo de si el objeto (que aparece detrás del verbo “to be”) está en singular o en plural.

While traveling we need to identify the different types of transportation.

  1. Which types of transport need tracks or rails to travel on? 
  2. Which types of transport can you rent in many cities? 
  3. How is an Uber different to a taxi?

Let´s start this lesson.

Desarrollo del tema

Remember present simple and present continuous? Study the next sentences and answer the questions.

  1. Trains leave every three hours.
  2. I sometimes take a taxi but it’s very expensive – it costs about $60!
  3. There’s also the bus. It takes an hour from the airport to the bus stop near my house.
  • We use 1 present simple / present continuous to talk about things that someone does regularly, or things that are always true.
  • Which of the examples above shows something that someone does regularly? 2_____________
  • We use adverbs like sometimes with present simple sentences. Can you think of other adverbs to use with this form? 3 _______»… I need to check my messages for work.»
  • Need (and want) are state verbs which describe feelings. They 4 can / cannot be used in continuous forms.

Review the following video:

Can y Can’t como posibilidad, habilidad o imposibilidad

Auxiliary verb can (positive) – can’t (negative).

You use can to talk about possibility and always with another verb, or if you are deciding now what to do in the future. I can is the same as I know to do something. / I know that something is possible for me.

To form the negative you add «not» after can to form one word: cannot. Short form: can’t. (can’t = cannot)
