Modal Verbs

Modal Perfects

Video 1


Perfect modals are not actually “perfect,” but they are called that because they use a modal verb (in this case, could, should, might/may, must) followed by a perfect tense construction (“have” + past participle). Perfect modals are used to talk past actions.

1.Let's go here for further examples.
2.Now, do the Quiz.

SHOULD HAVE

We use the structure “should + have + (participle)” when we are reacting to a past event or giving our opinion about it. Obviously, it’s in the past, so we can’t change it. But we can still talk and think about it. For example, in the Foo Fighters song, the singer didn’t know something. But when he says “I should have known,” he’s reflecting on that. He’s expressing that it was a problem that he didn’t know: he should have known. We can also make this negative by changing “should” to “shouldn’t.”
Other examples:
John failed his exam.
We could react to that situation and say something like:
John should have studied more.” OR
John shouldn’t have played so many video games."

How Teens Can Stay Fit

What can I do to get more fit?

Any type of regular, physical activity can improve your fitness and your health. The most important thing is that you keep moving!
Exercise should be a regular part of your day, like brushing your teeth, eating, and sleeping. It can be in gym class, joining a sports team, or working out on your own. Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Stay positive and have fun. A good mental attitude is important. Find an activity that you think is fun. You are more likely to keep with it if you choose something you like. A lot of people find it's more fun to exercise with someone else, so see if you can find a friend or family member to be active with you.
  • Take it one step at a time. Small changes can add up to better fitness. For example, walk or ride your bike to school or to a friend's house instead of getting a ride. Get on or off the bus several blocks away and walk the rest of the way. Use the stairs instead of taking the elevator or escalator.
  • Get your heart pumping. Whatever you choose, make sure it includes aerobic activity that makes you breathe harder and increases your heart rate. This is the best type of exercise because it increases your fitness level and makes your heart and lungs work better. It also burns off body fat. Examples of aerobic activities are basketball, running, or swimming.
  • Don't forget to warm up with some easy exercises or mild stretching before you do any physical activity. This warms your muscles up and may help protect against injury. Stretching makes your muscles and joints more flexible too. It is also important to stretch out after you exercise to cool down your muscles.
Your goal should be to do some type of exercise every day. It is best to do some kind of aerobic activity without stopping for at least 20 to 30 minutes each time. Do the activity as often as possible, but don't exercise to the point of pain.

A Healthy Lifestyle

In addition to exercise, making just a few other changes in your life can help keep you healthy, such as
  • Watch less TV or spend less time playing computer or video games. (Use this time to exercise instead!) Or exercise while watching TV (for example, sit on the floor and do sit-ups and stretches; use hand weights; or use a stationary bike, treadmill, or stair climber).
  • Eat 3 healthy meals a day, including at least 4 servings of fruits, 5 servings of vegetables, and 4 servings of dairy products.
  • Make sure you drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after any exercise (water is best but flavored sports drinks can be used if they do not contain a lot of sugar). This will help replace what you lose when you sweat.
  • Stop drinking or drink fewer regular soft drinks.
  • Eat less junk food and fast food. (They're often full of fat, cholesterol, salt, and sugar.)
  • Get 9 to 10 hours of sleep every night.

Hobbies!








Hobbies are good practices of a human that lead to the improvement and enhancement of one’s personality. Hobbies keep a person busy and so he has less scope to go for something bad, or waste his time. Hobbies even make a person more creative and talented. Talent cannot be gained just  by going to school. Only when we touch more and more creative hobbies, we can possess more talent.
