Independent Topic Nine

Topic

Imagine that you are preparing for a trip. You plan to be away from your home for a year. In addition to clothing and personal care items, you can take one extra thing.

Discussion

Topic 9 ask us to prioritize what is important to us, and then to give reasons in support of our decision.

You can choose what that “one additional thing” is by perhaps what you use the most, or maybe what cost you the most, or maybe what has the most personal value to you.  But whatever you choose, I would suggest keep it simple, and yet choose something that you can support well.

If you feel comfortable enough with using the Unreal Conditional, This is one of those topics where you can use it quit well.  “If I were going on a trip for a year, I would …”  This conditional fits in well and if done correctly allows for a smooth response.

Key words in this topic would be imagine, preparing, trip, a year, additional thing, why, reasons, and details.
