Speak having doing go was spend staying live
Every summer I usually _______________ a week in Scotland with my parents, but this summer I’m _________________ something different! This year my parents are in Scotland and I’m in Jersey. I’m _________________ with my cousin, Vicky and her family for two weeks. They _________________ in the capital, St Helier.
Jersey is a great place. It’s a small island, 22 kilometres from France, but it’s a part of the British Isles. The people _________________ English, but lots of the places have French names. This afternoon we’re visiting Mount Orgueil castle! It’s fantastic!
It often rains a lot in Scotland, but here in jersey the sun’s shining and I’m _______________ a great time. We ________________ to the beach everyday. This morning we went kayaking in the sea. Yesterday evening there was a music festival! My favourite band, ‘the Kooks’, was there. It ____________________ cool!
TEXT 2 Read the e-mail.
I can’t believe it! I’m finally here in America with the English Schools’ Basketball Team. Boston is great! We’re staying at Boston Harbour Hotel for two nights. The view from my room is fantastic.
It’s not all fun. Coach Carson is … Coach Carson! He’s very strict.
Yesterday we got up at 7 a.m. and we went running at the park. After breakfast we met the American coaches and we trained all morning. In the afternoon we had our first big match. We played against the Boston All Schools Team. We didn’t play well. But they weren’t very good so we won, 64-62.
In the evening we went to Fenway Park stadium. It’s really old (it opened in 1912) and the Boston Red Sox always play there when they’re playing at home.
Today, before lunch, we took a bus tour of the city centre (or ‘downtown’ as they say here). Then we went to Wendy’s, a cool hamburger restaurant. The burghers were REALLY BIG!

TEXT 3 Read Shiv’s blog and circle the right alternative.
Shiv, Newquay, Friday 12th September
I’m writing my blog today because it’s rain / raining AGAIN! We arrived last / next weekend here in Cornwall, a small peninsula in the west- south of England. We’re staying in a hotel near the beach. The first three days were great! I got up very early and I go / went surfing.
Dad can’t surf, but he went deep-sea fishing on a boat. Mum doesn’t like / likes the beach, so she sat by the swimming pool at the hotel and read her book.
Yesterday it rained and I don’t / didn’t go surfing. We went for a trip on the Lappa Valley steam train.
We saw an old silver mine. In 1846, more than 1,200 men, women and children worked there. (They always ate a Cornish pasty for lunch down the mines. It’s a parcel of pastry with some beef and a lot of vegetables.) We going / went to a baker’s and bought some Cornish pasties for our lunch. I really liked mine!
Tomorrow we’re go / going to a rainforest! Yes, in Cornwall! We’re visiting the Eden Project. It’s a global garden – the project wants to save the planet!
On Sunday morning we’re left / leaving to go home…
