[ə] – is the most common sound in English. It is a short sound, and always occurs in an unstressed syllable, e.g. doctor [‘dokte], address [a’dres].

Point out that unstressed ’er’ or ’or’ at the end of a word are always pronounced [ə] e.g. teacher, better, etc.

— Where are you going? I’m going to the cinema with my friends.

— I’m reading a fantasy book this month.
— In this picture they are looking at each other.

We should use Present Continuous when we speak about things, that are happening at this moment (now), around now and when we describe a picture.

We use Present Continuous to talk about temporary situations – this week, this month, this year (around now).

Ex.: I’m substituting your teacher this week. (It’s actual only for this week, it’s temporary).

We also can use Present Continuous for annoying habits.

Ex.: You’re always playing games, when I talk to you!

1.1 Listen to the audio file about Michelangelo.



Michelangelo was born on the 6th of March, 1475. He was a great Italian painter, sculptor and poet of the High Renaissance. He was born in the Republic of Florence and he influenced the development of Western art dramatically. He was considered to be the greatest living artist when he was alive. Now he is described as one of the greatest artists of all time.
A number of Michelangelo’s works of painting, sculpture, and architecture rank among the most famous in existence. His output in every field of interest was just great; he is the best-documented artist of the 16th century.
He sculpted two of his best-known works, the Pietà and David, before the age of thirty. Michelangelo also created two of the most influential paintings in the history of Western art. One of them is on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. There are two men moving toward each other. They are looking at each other and describing some emotions.
