Movie Segments to Assess Grammar Goals: Casino Royale: Simple Past x Past Perfect
In my opinion, this is one of the best 007 movie. I used this scene to have students practice the use of the past perfect x simple past tenses. Watch the video segment and write ( 1 ) in the parentheses of the action that took place first and ( 2 ) in the parentheses of the action that happened later. Ex:( 1 ) James Bond took a plane to the Bahamas. ( 2 ) He drove across the island to the hotel. a) ( ) He crouched to tie his shoe string. ( ) He gave his car keys to the bellboy. b) ( ) Two guys gave Bond their car keys by mistake. ( ) Bond crashed their car in the parking lot. c) ( ) He threw the car keys away. ( ) He entered the hotel lobby. d) ( ) He made a reservation at the hotel ( ) He saw the images of the parking lot in the surveillance room. Now fill in the blanks of the exercise below with the simple past or the past perfect forms of the verbs in parentheses. a) When he _____________ (drive) across the island to the hotel, James Bond ___________ (take) a plane to the Bahamas.
