Follow the rules!
In this lesson, students will review modals of obligation, prohibition, necessity and advice, and practice using them in writing and conversation.
The student reads a paragraph, paying special attention to the modal verbs. They try to identify them and explain the use of modals in their own words.
Obligation and prohibition
Modal verbs have to and must are explained and exemplified. Then, the two modals are contrasted. The student completes sentences with the missing modals have to, don’t have to, must, and mustn’t.
The student learns how to give advice using should. Then, they need to decide on the correct modal for each sentence – must, have to, or should.
