Hello students,

I hope you all did well on today’s quiz. And I also hope you still remember what the sonnet we read in class means, and that you all still remember how (and why) to use modal verbs. 🙂

In case you don’t remember, here goes the sonnet (Sonnet XVIII by Shakespeare):

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

Homework:

  • Coursebook – Page 98 – Language focus 1 – Don’t do the Practice bit, but make sure you read the language reference, OK?

Enjoy the weekend!
