Questions
You'll be hearing predictions on the future: on what the world will look like in 2050. Listen and take notes. Afterwards, in groups, you are going to discuss the following questions (so while listening prepare for this):
1. What aspect of 2050 are you looking forward to most? Why?
2. What aspect of 2050 are you dreading most? Why?
3. Can you be real friends with a human hologram or a robot dog?
4. Which prediction is most likely to happen and which is least likely?
5. What other changes do you expect for 2050 (that haven't been mentioned in the video)?

So how can you tell if a sentence is in the passive voice?
 It’s easy: a passive sentence will always have some form of the verb be, followed by a past participle. All of these examples are passives:


The burglar was arrested.
The children were invited to the party.
This flight is expected to arrive on time.
The candidate is being prepared for the debate.
I am appalled by your behaviour.

Assignment
Write a short letter to the editor (of which newspaper doesn't matter) on the corono-situation we're in. You'll get 8 minutes to write a maximum of 8 sentences. Take any angle you want (your private situation, the need for a curfew, your view on the corona rules&regulations, your desire/need to go out and have a good time, boring boomers who don't understand youngsters, etc). You must add 3 compound adjectives to your story.

Then, you'll be divided into groups of 3: you read each other's letters and select the best letter of your group.
