I took a taxi to the airport. I see what you mean. Exactly! What did you do all day in the airport? OK, you're right, that's not too bad. Yes the verb to be.

Pathways to Accuracy: “Somewhere Only We Know” – On the same page At the beginning of “Somewhere Only We Know” (Keane, 2004), the singer walks “across an empty land” and knows “the pathway like the back of my hand.” In this activity, the students find their way through the maze to read and understand the lyrics of the song while facing a series of challenges related to grammar and sentence structure along the way. The use of articles and possessive adjectives, or differences such as “been”/”gone” or “say”/”tell”, are some of the questions that the students will need to solve as they connect the words with a pencil or a highlighter.
