Ever/Never & For & Since 19/04/21

Ever/Never:

Ever means ‘at any time’. Never means ‘at no time’ or ‘not at any time’. We often use ‘ever’ and ‘never’ with the present perfect, but they can also be used with other verb tenses.

  • I’ve never been to Brazil.
  • They had never seen such a beautiful sunset before.
  • Does she ever visit her mother?

**We mostly use “ever” in questions**

Have you ever been to Prague?

Have you ever eaten fish?

We do not use “ever” in the answer:

If the answer is positive we would say:

I have been to Prague

I have eaten fish.

If the answer is negative we use “never”.

I have never been to Prague.

I have never eaten fish.

For/Since:

for + period: a “period” is a duration of time – five minutes, two weeks, six years. For means “from the beginning of the period to the end of the period”.

since + point: a “point” is a precise moment in time – 9 o’clock, 1st January, Monday. Since means “from a point in the past until now”.

For example:

I have played the piano for ten years/ I have played the piano since I was 11 years old/

I have been mountain biking for three hours/ I have been mountain biking since ten o’clock this morning.

*** Your challenge****

You will make a video with 8 SENTENCES using ever, never, for and since. So I think two of each would be fine. You can make questions, negative sentences or positive sentences it is up to you.

Here is some vocabulary to help you of course you can use over vocabulary too.

Vocabulary – physical activities – go surfing, go go – karting, do rock climbing, do trampolining, go ice – skating, go skiing, go canoeing, go scuba diving, go skateboarding, go mountain biking, out and about. Other activities: reading, dancing, playing a musical instrument etc.

PLEASE SEND YOUR VIDEO TO ME ON MESSENGER (IT IS BEST) OR EMAIL OR SKOLA ONLINE. THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK.
