GAME

 

Now let’s imagine kinda silly but anyway possible situation. You were on vacation and bought a really-really expensive and rare bottle of whiskey. Doesn’t matter if you bought it for yourself or as a gift for someone. Anyway, you put it in your bag and went to the airport intending to head for your home, sweet home. And when you’re going through the security check, a polite smiling woman asks you to open your bag, and you see this glorious bottle inside that literally cost you a fortune. Of course, you aren’t allowed to take it on the plane. So, your actions?

 

  • Will you throw it away and pretend you don’t care (and then maybe shed a tear in the toilet)?

  • Will you drink the whole bottle in front of the amazed queue? What might be the consequences of it?

  • Will you cancel your flight, go back and make your vacation a little longer?

  • Will you try bribing the TSA agents?

  • Will you share the bottle with all the people around?

  • Or maybe any other ideas?

 

Try making a funny story out of it.

Have you ever had to leave anything precious for you at the security check? If so, what was it?

 

Надеемся, этот урок прокачает скилл уверенности и владения “аэропортным” английским ваших учеников, и они будут летать с невозмутимостью британских джентльменов и делиться с вами историями о своих увлекательных путешествиях.
