Don't leave for tomorrow what you can do today!
This suggestion I got from a book I’ve already mentioned here (“Inglês com Criatividade”) and as this week I have a reading exercise with one of my students about PROVERBS, I decided to type and print some which I got from “Como dizer tudo em Inglês (Ron Martinez). My idea is to use it as a “pre-reading” task. I intend to place all of them on the desk and ask my student to choose five, for example, then she’s supposed to read one by one and try to explain me in her words what she understands from each of them. I’ll post some for you so, if you want, you can use with your students, too!
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Scratch my back, I’ll sctrach yours.
Practice makes perfect. (I love this one!)
Don’t leave for tomorrow what you can do today.
You’re only as old as you feel.
No use crying over spilt milk.
Never say never.
He who laughs last laughs best.
Tomorrow’s a new day, colleague! See you then!
