1 UNIT 2 UNI t Work, Rest, and Play Work, Rest, 2 and Play About the Photo This photo was taken at the Central China Normal University, in Wuhan. It is a large, prestigious university with more than 30,000 students, including more than 1,600 international students. For several years now, the university has allowed parents to spend the first night with their children, sleeping on mats in the gymnasium. Some parents find it hard to get used to the idea of their children leaving home and may even experience what is called empty nest syndrome, finding themselves feeling alone and missing their children. Staying for the first night helps parents with the transition. It may not be comfortable, but hundreds of families choose to spend their last night together on the university gym floor. Introduce the theme of the unit. Ask students, When do you work? When do you rest? When do you play? Direct students attention to the photo. Have students describe what they see. Have students discuss the questions with a partner. Have several students share their ideas. Write them on the board. Ask these questions orally or by writing them on the board for students to answer in pairs: What do you do on workdays?

2 Look at the photo, 1 Which word or phrase describes 2 Where do you work, rest, answer the questions: this photo? and play? Unit Theme Overview In this unit, students will learn to talk about regular, repeated activities, using the simple present tense. The sequence of topics discussed moves from the more familiar and universal, to the unique and more specific. Students begin by discussing their daily workday activities, which are fairly similar around the world with some important cultural differences (for example, most North Americans like to take a shower in the morning, to start their day feeling clean and fresh, while Japanese people generally bathe at night, to wash away the cares of the day and go to bed relaxed). They next consider their free-time activities, which show more individual variation, before considering festivals in their country. Throughout the lessons, they are practicing the language used for the recurring events that make up the fabric of our lives, wherever in the world we live. Students will learn about a virtual choir and think about the daily lives of the participants in an amazing project from TED speaker Eric Whitacre, and finally, students will learn about a special festival in Thailand. UNIT 2 GOALS 1. Talk about a typical day 2. Talk about free time 3. Describe a special celebration or festival 4.
