CUT TO MM3 CUT TO ANCHOR 1 (Voice over along with the text on screen highlighting the underlined words/phrases) • Good Morning, Friends. You have just watched two visuals on the screen. You must have noticed that a number of auxiliaries were used by the speakers during their conversation. But they were not doing the work of auxiliaries. They were used to express the mode of action denoted by the verb. They are called MODALS. Modals are a special kind of helping verb that do not show tense and do not follow subject/verb agreement. Today’s topic of our discussion is MODALS. But before proceeding further we need to revise ‘principal ‘verbs, ‘helping verbs’, and ‘auxiliaris’. This will make our learning objectives more clear to you and you will understand ‘modals’ better. • Main Verbs are those words, without which no sentence is complete. Eg . is, are, was , has, have ,had etc. Use: He Vinay.(wrong) We books.(wrong) He is Vinay. ( Right.) We have books.(right.) I a small bell.( wrong.) She a box.(wrong) I have a small bell.(right.) She has a box.(right.) • Helping verbs’or’ Modal Auxiliaries’ are those words which are used to supplement The correct use of the main ‘action word’ or ‘verb’. The sentence sounds wrong without the use of these ‘helping verbs’ -3-
  4. 4. PES/ENG/IX/014 Eg. am, being, did. Use: He climbing the wall.(wrong) I not eating food.(wrong) He is climbing the wall.(right.) I am not eating food.(right) These girls rewarded for doing well.(wrong) These girls are being rewarded for doing well.(right.) I not do this.(wrong) This book read by you?(wrong) I did not do this.(right) Has this book been read by you?(right) MAIN LEARNING OBJECTIVES: (Voice over as per screen text to appear one by one) It is desired that after discussing about modals in detail our students shall be able: • To differentiate between Modals and helping verbs when they are used in sentences, • To make use of appropriate modals to denote the mode of an action in a sentence, • To understand that modals are always followed by the present form of the main verb, • To understand that modals do not change according to the number or person of the subject as is the case with the helping verbs. • To use correct modal to express request, command, possibility, permission, ability, determination etc. NOTE: All the auxiliary verbs except ‘be’, ‘do’, and ‘have’ are used as modals. Modal Auxiliaries are: can, could, may, might, will, would, shall, should must, ought to, need, used to, dare -4-
  5. 5. PES/ENG/IX/014 CUT TO ANCHOR 3 (Voice over along with highlighted text to appear one by one on the screen.) Friends, as stated earlier, modals are in fact auxiliaries but they state the mode of action expressed by the main verb. Let us discuss them one by one: (Show the screen text as per voice over) 1. SHALL Generally, ‘shall’ is used with I person to denote an action in future time. But as a modal, it is used to express promise, intention, threat, command, wish and assurance.

But before we say ‘good bye’ to you, here is an interesting classroom game, which will make you practice the ’modals’ that you have learnt today.Your Teacher will guide you while playing the game.

  13. 13. PES/ENG/IX/014 Team ‘A’ and Team’ B’ take turns in spinning the dice and to know the modal they have to use along with the corresponding situation written for the same number in the situation circle.. Eg. If the dice has shown 4 then the modal for the pair of students is ’have to’ and the corresponding situation is ‘In the Library.’ Now they will make as many sentences they can using the given situation and the corresponding modal, In a time that is decided by the teacher. Eg. We have to be quiet in the Library. In the Library we have to read the books. When coming out of the library, we have to issue the books. In this way, both the teams take turns, alternatively, till all the pairs have got a chance.The score for each team is added in the end and whichever team gets more is the Winner!! Hope you enjoyed playing the game. Thank you and have a good day.
