Reading and Speaking

1.1 Read the first date tips. Do you find them useful?


1. Know why you’re dating.
Take a moment to do your mental preparation before you meet your date. Why are you dating? What’s your end-goal? Are you ready for a committed relationship or dating for fun? When your intentions are clear, your meeting will be purposeful.

2. Have fun.
Make up your mind, in advance, to have fun. Dating is a numbers game. Every time you meet someone new, you’re gaining vital information as to what you want (and don’t want) in a partner. No matter the outcome, this attitude allows you to walk away with a gain you can keep.

3. Manage your mindset.
Remind yourself that a bad first date is not the end of the world. If it really is that bad, it’ll make for a funny story to tell your friends later on! Remember this isn’t a job interview where you only have one chance to make a good impression. Just keep your nerves.

1.2 Read the new words from the topic. Make the sentences with these words.

1.3 Answer the questions.

1. What questions should you ask before you have a date?
2. What does the phrase ‘Make fun’ mean?
3. What should you remind yourself about the first date?

1.4 Click in the sentences the right words in bold.
