Did you know? Verbs in English • The base form is the form of the verb that you see in the dictionary. It is the form from which all other parts of a regular verb are made. e.g. be, like, play • The infinitive is the verb with the word ‘to’ in front of it. e.g. to be, to like, to play • Verbs also have -ing forms in English, like in exercise 2, e.g. being, playing, reading. This can make the verbs into nouns (= zelfstandig naamwoord) or adjectives (= bijvoeglijk naamwoord). If we use a verb as a subject or object in a sentence, we often use the -ing form. e.g. Sleeping is my number 1 hobby. I like reading.

Discuss the hobbies that people you know have. Use the activities in exercise 2 as inspiration. SPOKEN INTERACTION Follow the example. e.g. I like jogging. My best friend likes cooking. I think my teacher likes reading.

What are Some Hobbies that Teens are Interested in? BY CHERYL STEPHENSON-HEARNS Hobbies have many mental and physical health benefits, including more optimism, higher creativity and a better ability to deal with stress. Sharing hobbies with others also keeps teens socially engaged with people who have similar interests. Teens can be interested in almost unlimited hobbies. Here are some possible hobbies.

Music Teens can enjoy music as a hobby in a number of ways. They can relax by listening to music or they can benefit intellectually by learning how to play an instrument. Teens can show their musical talents in school or community bands and choirs. If the teen is tech-savvy, computer programs allow users to create music recordings and mixes. Sports Teens have many choices when it comes to activities. Indoor activities include gym memberships, yoga and dance classes. Outdoor activities range from skiing and snowboarding in winter to sailing and skateboarding in summer. Teens can also choose to participate in traditional team sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball and hockey. For non-traditionalists, they can join an ultimate frisbee or paintball team.

The arts Some teens enjoy unwinding with a good book. The fantasy genre has become very popular in recent years. Other teens prefer to express themselves through creative art, spending time drawing, painting or sculpting. And what do you think about making jewellery or doing scrapbooking, or car modelling, cooking and baking? For those teens with a dramatic flair, there are often opportunities to act, sing or dance in theatre productions. Social causes Teens who want to make a difference in their communities can volunteer in hospitals, animal shelters, libraries and museums. Teens also have the option of taking part in ‘voluntours’, planned trips to exotic locations where they can view the sites while volunteering, for example, to teach English or to build homes and schools.

to be tech-savvy: knowing a lot about modern technology, especially computers to benefit: to be helped by someone an opportunity: a chance to unwind: to relax

Technology The technology available to teens gives them unlimited options for hobbies. Teens can create and maintain a blog or a vlog on a topic that interests them. They can also play video games, use social networking sites and even build robots and write programs to make them run. The Internet provides a world of opportunities for teens without even leaving their bedrooms.

Ashley always has a busy schedule. Every weekday she gets up at 6:00 a.m. and feeds her cat. She always carries the cat downstairs and lets it out. Then she takes a shower and gets dressed. She has breakfast at 6:45 a.m. She loves cornflakes. She always fills an extra large bowl and adds some cold milk. After breakfast, she goes to the bathroom and brushes her teeth, dries and checks her hair again and again and again … , puts on some make-up and adds the finishing touch, perfume. Jamal hates it when she does that. She always uses too much! At 7:30 a.m. she leaves home to take the bus to school. The trip takes thirty minutes. At the bus stop she meets up with her best friends and then they have to walk for another five minutes. School starts at 8:30 a.m. Ashley isn’t that fond of school, but she doesn’t hate it either. At least her friends are there with her. School ends at 3:30 p.m. She takes the bus and arrives home at 4:20 p.m. That’s when the fun starts. Every Monday she goes dancing. Every Tuesday she goes horse riding, and on Wednesdays she plays tennis and has another dance class. Thursday is a day with nothing to do but to take extra good care of her cat. And on Fridays she gets together with some friends and talks about everything, especially boys. Most of the time she has dinner around 7:00 p.m., then she does homework, watches some TV and goes to bed at 10:00 p.m. On Saturdays she often has a competition with her dance crew; she wants to become a professional dancer. If there isn’t a competition, she goes out in the evening. Sunday is a quiet day. She just relaxes, does some work for school, plays with her cat and checks her social network sites. Use the text about Ashley’s routines to answer the questions. a Look at the verbs in the text and underline them. b Complete the sentences in the grid with a verb from the text in exercise 1. c Complete the spelling rules. d Look at these verbs and add them to the grid. to buy – to cry – to destroy – to dry – to eat – to have – to party – to push – to say – to sleep – to stay Infinitive

6:00 a.m. That’s more like it – 6:00 a.m. – I’m awake! The sun is rising over the city, and I always take a moment to appreciate the amazing view from my high-rise apartment. I’m much more productive when I start my workday early. I usually make a strong coffee then head straight to my desk to check my email.

7:00 a.m. By now, I have answered my most important emails and can start thinking about how the rest of my day will look.

7:30 a.m. Next, I skim news sites, forums, and answer questions from my 20,000+ social media followers.

8:00 a.m. After about 2 hours of light work, it’s time for breakfast. I usually have organic muesli, soy milk, fruit, and more coffee. I don’t like working when I eat, but I also don’t have space for a dining table in my apartment, so I often have breakfast at my desk.

9:00 a.m. Twice a week, I have an online meeting with my team at 9:00 a.m. During this meeting I get updates about our active projects, I test the latest games, and I give feedback. If it’s a day without a team meeting, I usually exercise or go for a walk around the city.

10:00 a.m. This is when the real work starts. I’m fully awake and in my best mental state. Most of my work from now until 1:00 p.m. involves designing, coding, and testing new games.

1:00 p.m. Time for lunch. I usually have a salad wrap and fries while catching up on a TV show. Sometimes, I finish my day here if I feel like I have been productive enough.

2:00 p.m. I like to wind down in the afternoon with light work. This is when I do tasks like blogging, research, organization and planning.

5:00 p.m. I finish work at 5:00 p.m. if it’s a normal day. Sometimes I work late (7:00 p.m.) or very late (9:00 p.m.) if the work is interesting or I try to finish up a blog post.

6:00 p.m. From this point onwards, I just want to relax and avoid work for the rest of the night. I have dinner, watch TV or a good movie, and maybe play some Xbox with friends.

10:00 p.m. Due to the difference in time zones, I often write emails or talk with clients/partners on Skype late into the evening. My evening is their morning.

10:30 p.m. Then … it’s time to get 8 hours of sleep and do it all again! So, that is a day in the life of a game developer. Thanks for reading! ninety-eight

b Match the pictures to the correct step.

How to make your own diary Do you and your schoolmates regularly forget to do your homework? When do your parents tell you to do your homework? Do you forget to prepare for tests? How do you plan your free time? Does your coach call your parents to say you are late again? Why does your brother forget dentist appointments? If you don’t have a diary, it’s a good idea to start organizing your life. Part 1: choosing and decorating a diary 1 Find or buy a notebook. Think about the size that you want. If you want to include a lot of details, you’ll need a larger notebook. A small notebook is easier to carry and takes up less room in your backpack.

A

2 How do you want to decorate the cover? Do you like stickers or are you more of a doodler? Write down what you need to buy. Do you keep pictures and fun text from magazines? Do you create collages from interesting materials?

B

3 Decorating the cover is one of the best ways to make your diary just for you. And the more you feel like your diary expresses your personality and creativity, the more you’ll want to use it. Plus, you’ll get to show off your beautiful work!

C

4 Write your name inside the front cover. Add information that will help someone return your diary if you lose it. Write your class schedule on the first page so you can check it easily when your friend calls you to make plans.

Part 2: listing your tasks 5 Open to the second page. Lay the notebook flat so that you can see both sides. Divide the right page into 3 sections. Label each section with the day of the week and the date. This is where you write your homework assignments from that day. Use the margin or make a column on the right side to keep track of when your tasks are due.

E

6 Write on the left page ‘After School’ or ‘Upcoming Events’. This side is where you keep track of other activities, like band practice, sports, and dance class. Divide it up into days or list everything in the order that it occurs.

F

7 Write in your tasks. Do this every day. If you don’t have any, make a note of it so that you’ll know later that you didn’t just forget to write it down.

G

8 Add useful sections in the back of the notebook. Make a page of goals for the next few weeks or the semester, a page for the school calendar, and a page with contact information and birthdays.

H

9 Use sticky tabs or flags to label the sections. It will be easier to use your diary if you can flip straight to the section you need.

DanTDM: Everything You Wanted To Know DanTDM is one of the biggest YouTubers in the world! Here’s how he went from Pokémon expert to Minecraft celebrity. 1 (who / to see / we / in this picture) It’s DanTDM. 2 (who / to be / he?) He is our favourite Minecraft YouTuber! But he’s much more than just a blockhead. Here’s everything you want to know about Dan, his channel, his wife, and loads more! 3 (where / to live?) He lives in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire in the United Kingdom. 4 (what / to stand for / DanTDM?) Dan’s full name is Daniel Middleton. His middle name is Robert. His full name is Daniel Robert Middleton. 5 (where / DanTDM’s nickname / to come from) It’s a mix of his real name and the name of his YouTube channel. Put ‘Daniel Middleton’ and ‘The Diamond Minecart’ together and you get ‘DanTDM’. He really loves his nickname. 6 Dan’s birthday is on 8 November.

(when / to celebrate / his birthday?)

7 (to have / brothers or sisters?) Yes, he does. He has a younger brother. He says his brother was his best friend growing up because they moved around a lot and both love video games. They started a band together in high school, and his brother first introduced him to Minecraft. Bonus fact: other YouTubers sometimes pretend to be Dan’s brother – even Dan himself! 8 (why / to be / Dan’s hair blue?) Dan has dyed his hair many colours, from blonde to purple to turquoise. His hair is now pink and blue, because when he tweeted saying ‘5,000 LIKES and I’ll dye my hair Pink and Blue tomorrow’ he got 2,063 likes in 17 minutes!

Taylor Swift: Snow globes Singer Taylor Swift shared a photograph of one of her favourite holiday hobbies with fans on Instagram. In addition to writing songs about her ex-boyfriends, Swift enjoys homemade Christmas snow globes. Johnny Depp: Barbie dolls Johnny Depp loves playing with Barbie dolls. Yes, you read that correctly. The actor says he ­picked up the hobby when his kids were young. Don’t worry, Depp fans … your idol is still kind of strange. He also collects pig skeletons for fun.

Angelina Jolie: Antique daggers Beautiful, smart and dangerous? Angelina Jolie is certainly all three, but make sure you don’t mess with the mother of six. She collects first edition books and antique daggers. Tom Hanks: Typewriters Tom Hanks’ quirky hobby is actually pretty cool. The actor collects antique manual typewriters. ‘I have almost 200 old portable manual typewriters,’ he revealed during an interview. ‘Most of them are actually working and I keep them rotating.’ Katie Holmes: Arts & crafts When she isn’t acting, Katie Holmes loves to do crafts with her daughter Suri, and also teaches the fashionable little one how to sew. ‘I like to do things like that with my daughter,’ she says.

25

Mila Kunis: Video games Mila Kunis really is every guy’s dream girl. She is beautiful, smart and obsessed with video games. The Black Swan actress once told Jimmy Kimmel that, among other geeky interests (including all things ‘Star Trek’), she is an avid World of Warcraft gamer.

I’d love to say I buy them for aging value, but I mostly buy them to read.’

Will Smith, Tom Cruise and David Beckham: Fencing In an interview with Britain’s Daily Mirror, actor Will Smith revealed that he, Tom Cruise and David Beckham share a hobby. ‘We’ve got to watch our joints,’ Smith said. ‘Especially my knee.’ That is one fencing team we wouldn’t mind joining. Ben Stiller: ‘Star Trek’ Calling all Trekkies: Ben Stiller is one of you!

Justin Bieber: Rubik’s cube It’s no secret that Justin Bieber can sing, but did you also know he can solve a Rubik’s cube in under two minutes? Chris Brown: Dog breeding Chris Brown sells American pit bull terriers for $1,000 each through a website called CB Breeds. The dogs come with a health guarantee and a ‘four generation pedigree’. Animal activists call Brown a ‘backyard breeder’ and want him to use his celebrity to promote animal adoption.
