no foi planejada antes.
QUESTION 4 - Read the following text about the a
dialogue Planning a party! (part 2). The
underlined verbs are written in the infinitive. So,
choose the best alternative that become them right
in the Future with will or Going to.
DIALOGUE
Planning a party !
( Part 2 )
After a few days ...
Rayssa : Hi, Anne ! Whats up ?
Anne : Andreza and I have decided to have a party.
Rayssa : Thats great !
Anne : The girls bring the snacks and the boys buy
the drinks. Ana do the decoration.

?
Anne : We arent sure yet... Maybe our party occur
on December 9th.

a) is going to bring / is going to buy / is going to do /
is the party going to take place / will occur/ will be

take place / will occur/ will be

do / is the party going to take place / will occur/ will
be

do / will the party take place / will occur/ is going to
be

e) d) are going to bring / are going to buy / is going


to do / is the party going to take place / will occur/
is going to be
Comentrio : os verbos bring , buy, do e take
sublinhados no dilogo acima foram usados no futuro
com going to porque Andreza e Anne j tinham
decidido antes planejar a festa , ou seja, a ao foi
planejada antes ( few days ago) = poucos dias
atrs).
Na frase We arent sure yet... Maybe our party will
occur on December 9th , o verbo occur
(sublinhado)deve ser escrito no futuro com will
porque pela prpria traduo da frase Ns no
temos certeza ainda...Talvez nossa festa ocorra em 9
de dezembro, podemos perceber que a frase
expressa incerteza quanto ao futura. A
mesma explicao serve para a construo da ltima
frase Our party be unforgettable ! ( Nossa festa
ser inesquecvel!)

QUESTION 5 - Based on modal verbs and


future with will and going to, judge the items
that follow . And then, choose the correct sequence.
a) ( F ) We use the future with will when we have
already decided to do something.
b) ( F ) We use the future with going to when we
decide to do something at the time of speaking. The
speaker has not decided before.
c) ( T ) We use the auxiliary modal verb MUST to
say that you believe something is certain .
d ) ( T ) We use MUSTN T to say about prohibition.
e) ( F ) We use CAN and MAY for solicitations . So,
you use CAN for formal solicitations and MAY for
informal solicitations.
Comentrio : A afirmao da letra aest errada
porque ns usamos o futuro com wil quando ns
decide to do something at the time of speaking
(decidimos fazer algo no momento da fala)
A afirmao da letra b est errada porque ns
usamos o futuro com going to quando ns have
already dedided what to do something ( j temos
decidido o que fazer)
A afirmao da letra e est errada porque usamos
can para solicitaes informais (Informal
solicitations) e may para solicitaes formais
(formal solicitations).
The correct sequence is :
a)
b)
c)
d)
e)

F, F, T, T, F

T, T, T, T, F
F, F, F, T ,T,T

Comentrio : A traduo j responde por que a


alternativa c a alternativa correta :
According to short story Happiness, the best
Tonys friend is his dog Tomorrow because
Tomorrow never comes when Tony calls him (De
acordo com a historinha Felicidade, o melhor
amigo de Tony seu amigo Amanh porque o
Amanh nunca vem quando Tony o chama.)

is able to speaking five languages.


is be able to speak five languages.
is able speak five language.
was able to speak five languages.
is able to speak five languages.

Comentrio : Na frase She can speak five


languages (Ela consegue falar cinco lnguas) ,
o verbo can indica habilidade intelectual e ,
por esta razo, o verbo can pode ser substitudo
corretamente por be able to, pois quando
digo She is able to speak five languages( Ela
capaz de falar cinco lnguas), a frase permanece
com o mesmo sentido quando h a presena do
modal can. Observe, entretanto, que a
construo is able corresponde ao mesmo
tempo do verbo can ( Present tense) . Se , no
entanto a frase fosse construda com o verbo
modal no passado com could, o verbo to be
deveria ser escrito tambm no passado.
