  • Compare what Paul said a few years ago with what he says now. Some things are the same as before and some things have changed.

    Paul a few years ago (beard)
    ○       I travel a lot.
    ○       I work in a shop.
    ○       I write poems.
    ○       I want to be a teacher.
    ○       I’m interested in politics.
    ○       I’m single.
    ○       I go fishing a lot.

    Paul now
    ○       I travel a lot.
    ○       I work in a hospital.
    ○       I gave up writing poems.
    ○       I want to be a teacher.
    ○       I’m not interested in politics.
    ○       I’m single.
    ○       I haven’t been fishing for years.
    • Write sentences about Paul using ‘still’ and ‘not … any more’.
      • He (travel)
        He (shop)
        He (poems)
        He (teacher)
        He’s (politics)
        He’s (single)
        He (fishing)
        He hasn’t (beard)
        or
        He doesn’t (beard)

      • Now write three sentences about Paul using ‘no longer’.
        • He (shop)
          He (poems)
          He is (politics)
          He (fishing)
          He (beard)

        • For each sentence (with ‘still’) write a sentence with a similar meaning using ‘not … yet’ + one of the following verbs:

          decide       ○      find       ○      finish       ○      go       ○      stop       ○      take off       ○      wake up
