Although we do not communicate by means of such sophisticated technology as that which was used on board the space station, we can also “link up” with our friends through the telephone and if we’re fortunate enough, through e-mail.

Role-play the following situations with one of your classmates:

  • Make a telephone call to your friend to ask him/her to explain how to get to a certain shopping mall. He/she must explain clearly, so that you can write down the directions. Unfortunately the line is rather bad, so he/she will have to repeat some of the directions.
  • You are in a restaurant with friends. Your friend phones you on your cellular phone. Bearing in mind the principles of telephone etiquette, act out what you would do in such circumstances. Have a conversation with your friend that lasts for about one minute.
  • Make a phone call to your father’s office. He is not available, so you have to leave a message with his secretary to ask whether he can fetch your bicycle from the repair shop.

What is the term is that is used for newly-created words ?

  1. What does “to coin a word/phrase/expression” mean?
  2. See how many such “new” words you can write down. To find them, read the newspapers, magazines and listen to the radio or even to your friends as they speak. Television programmes could also be useful.
