Changing Rooms

Click here if you want to see part one of the programme 'Changing Rooms'. In class I only played the first part so you can watch the whole of part one if you want. If you want to watch the middle part of the programme (part 2) click here...

...but to do the exercise on the photocopy, watch the video below from 4 minutes and 9 seconds. This is the moment when both couples return to their houses and we can see if they like the changes or not.

Have something done

Remember that we use 'to have something done' when asking (or paying) people to do things for us. If you want to practise the structure, click here for the English File website and here for another website to listen to a podcast about it and play a game. The podcast also shows you synonyms of the structure. The game is like 'The Weakest Link'. See if you can answer get all 500 points in a category. Click on the option for one or two players to start.
