LESSON GOAL

Let’s check our lesson goal.
In this material, you will learn how to use how and so in sentences.

PART A_1

Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.

PART A_2

Hi, Emma. Do you cook at home?
Yes, I cook at home most of the time so that I can save money on food. I learned how to cook from my parents who work as chefs. How about you?

You are very lucky. I try to cook sometimes so I can eat home-cooked meals at school. I’m not a good cook, though. How can I learn to cook on my own?
You can read and follow cookbooks so that you can learn how to cook on your own. I’m sure you can do it, Ron.

Thanks, Emma. I will start tomorrow so that I can have more time to practice cooking.
That’s a great idea. Good luck!
