Periods 1&2 Introduction and Reading—The City of the Future
■Goals ● To learn to read passages with the future continuous ● To learn to read with strategies

■Procedures
Step 1: Warming up by defining future What is future? In a linear conception of time, the future is the portion of the timeline that is still to occur, i.e. the place in space-time where lie all events that still have not occurred. In this sense the future is opposed to the past (the set of moments and events that have already occurred) and the present (the set of events that are occurring now). Warming up by welcome to the City of the Future Our present-day cities are already obsolete and are threatening to engulf the entire countryside, permanently destroying vast areas of our best food-producing land. Victory City? is the wave of the future. It’s an entire city all under one roof, to be built and operated by private enterprise alone. There will not be just one, but many such cities throughout the entire world. Boasting no crime, no pollution, and no over-crowding, Victory City is a veritable utopia for those who’ve grown weary of trying to find solutions to today’s urban problems. Welcome to the City of the Future. Step 2: Before you read Please go over the word list for this module, paying attention to the pronunciation of the word, the relationship between its pronunciation and its spelling.

Period 3

Grammar—The future continuous

■Goals ●To learn to use the future continuous ■Procedures Step 1: Learning about Future Continuous Future continuous tense describes an ongoing or continuous action that will take place in the future. This tense is formed by using will be or shall be with the verb form ending in ing (i.e. a present participle) or subject + shall/will be + present participle (i.e. the -ing form of the verb) e.g. China will be completing work on the Three Gorges Damn by the year 2010. When your plane arrives tonight, I will be waiting for you. Note: No Future in Time Clauses Like all future forms, the Future Continuous cannot be used in clauses beginning with “when”, “while”, “before”, “after”, “by the time”, “as soon as”, “if” and “unless”. In this lesson, all verbs in Time Clauses are italicized.

e.g. While I am finishing my homework, she is going to make dinner. Correct While I will be finishing my homework, she is going to make dinner. Not Correct Step 2: Making sentences with Future Continuous I will be watching TV when she arrives tonight. I will be waiting for you when your bus arrives. While I am working, Steve will make dinner. (NOTICE “am working” because of “while.”) I am going to be staying at the Madison Hotel, if anything happens and you need to contact me. He will be studying at the library tonight, so he will not see Jennifer when she arrives. NOTE: No future tenses can be used in Time Clauses therefore you must say “While I am working... .” See the warning at the top of the page. Tonight at 6 p.m., I am going to be eating dinner. At midnight tonight, we will still be driving through the desert. Tonight at 6 p.m., I am going to eat dinner. I am going to start eating at 6 p.m. Tonight at 6 p.m., I am going to be eating dinner. I am going to start earlier and I will be in the process of eating dinner at 6 p.m. . I am going to be studying while he is making dinner. While Ellen is reading, Tim will be watching television. Tonight, they will be eating dinner, discussing their plans, and having a good time. When I arrive at the party everybody is going to be celebrating. Some will be dancing. Others are going to be talking. A few people will be eating pizza and several people are going to be drinking beer. They always do the same thing. Li Hong will be being at my house when you arrive.

Writing—Writing about your future

To learn to write about what you will be doing in ten years ■Procedures Step 1: Reading to be prepared First we shall go to page 8 to read about the four people. While reading try to copy all the useful expressions to be used in your own writing.

From Thomas In ten years from now, do a job, definitely tell… that…, celebrate…with…, too…to…, enjoy one’s life, worry about.. From Emma Travel around the world, live different, go to any country, find a job From Ken Study medicine, finish school, a lot of hard work, in ten years, work in a hospital, as a doctor with my own surgeon, save lives, a useful and interesting career From Mary Sure about…, go to university, get married, some time in the next ten years, have a family, have a job, work as…, develop alternative energy Step 2: Writing about what you will be doing in ten years

Zhao Yannan
I am quite sure about my future. I know that I will be studying at a very good university in Japan. I won’t be married in ten years. Going to university is the most important thing for me to do. I will get married some time in the next fifteen years. I don’t want to have a family too soon. I’d like to have a job first and enjoy my freedom being alone. I will be working as a futurist after graduation. I want to develop alternative ways of life for the future people. Li Xiaohe I like to study international laws after I finish my high school. I know that to be an international lawyer means a lot of hard work. But in ten years working as an international lawyer will be a very good job. It will be better than working in a hospital as a doctor. With your own surgeon you save lives in your neighborhood. But working as an international lawyer you are able to save a country from being involved into a terrible war. It will be a useful and interesting career! Zhao Yuanming I think I will be traveling around the world in ten years from now. I like to see people who are living different from us in China. I will be working as a travel guide so that I can go to any country I like to. I will study hard to find such a job. Wang Li In ten years from now I will do a good-paying job. I don’t know what it will be at present. But I can definitely tell you that it will get me lots of money. Being rich I can travel to any places, including the moon. I will than celebrate my wedding with my parents on the moon! Now I am too busy to think of my future ten years from now. I have to do my schoolwork and my homework. I have no time to enjoy my life now. I work hard so that I will have nothing to worry about ten years in the future.
