  1. 1. Summer Vocabulary Let’s talk about summer holidays
  2. 2. Discuss Talk with a small group. • What did you do during the summer holiday?

  6. 6. Sunbathe Examples: “My sister is so boring. Whenever we go to the beach, she just sunbathes! I want to go play in the sea!” “I love sunbathing in the garden during the afternoon.” “It’s hard to find a place to sunbathe when the beach is so busy.”

  9. 9. Note In English, we don’t say someone becomes “black”. We don’t often say someone gets “dark”. Instead, use “tan”. “Wow, you’ve gotten really black.” “Wow, you’ve gotten really tanned.” “I don’t see why people want to get dark.” “I don’t see why people want to get tanned.”

  18. 18. Pale Examples: “Some people really don’t want to get tanned. They prefer pale skin.” “My skin just goes from really pale to completely burned – it’s so annoying!” “Why do people want to be pale? Tan lines are sexy.”
