Feltételes mód

2019.08.20

"Chain story, a lánctörténet. Az angol nyelvben (is) számos olyan szerkezet van, ami jól tanulható lánctörténetek segítségével. A Lánctörténet lényege, hogy mindig onnan folytatjuk, ahol abbahagytuk: az új mondat első fele mindig az előző mondat vége. Az első szettet a Feltételes módnak szenteljük, mégpedig olyan történeteknek, amelyek reálisan megtörténhetnek: Ha Tom a hétvégén horgászni megy, fog egy nagy halat. Ha fog egy nagy halat, hazaviszi. És így tovább." Lados Olivér

"Mivel a Lánctörténetek célja, hogy a szerkezetekre rálátást adjon, a tartalmi értés megszerzése után (azaz amikor a történet összeállt), érdemes több ízben végignézni a videókat, hogy a formára/szerkezetekre is ráérezz. Végül pedig mondd el a történetet a videó alatti jegyzetek segítségével." Lados Olivér
