That's English! - module 5 -unit 5: Leisure

This unit is about what you do in your free time so it deals with leisure, hobbies, reading, movies and so on. As usual, let's start with some general questions:
  • What do you like doing in your free time? When do you do it? When and how did you start that activity? How long have you been doing it? (Pay attention to the verbs expressing likes and dislikes, which are followed by -ING form)
  • Speak about a friend's hobby: what it is like, why your friend likes doing it, if you've ever tried to do it with him/her...
  • What's the best activity for summer? And the best for winter?
  • Have you ever tried a risky activity? What was that and why did you choose it? If not, why don't you fancy a risky activity? 
  • what is the most strange thing/activity you've ever tried? Describe your experience.
