Lesson 1. This Is an Emergency!
1. Work in pairs and describe the pictures below. Discuss the situation with your partner, then, rank them from 1 (the most serious) to 4 (the least serious) in your opinion.
*Answers can be different
Fire: 2, I think a fire is very dangerous because flames cannot be controlled easily, but it can be prevented and sometimes nothing serious happens
Hail: 3, unless you are on the street without protection is not so dangerous
Storm: 4, I think a storm would be the least serious one. We always have storms here and the worst that has happened is that the power goes out for an hour
Earthquake: 1, I would rank an earthquake as the most serious one, since lots of buildings can be destroyed and people might end up without a home
2. Look at the central picture. There was a heavy rain and the street flooded. Look at Liza and her mom. How do Liza and her mom feel? How do you know?
a. I think that Liza’s mom is: worried
b. I feel like Liza seems to be: relaxed
c. If I were in a similar situation, I would feel… nervous
