POSTCARDS (3): meaning and examples

Good morning. This week we have been analysing how to write a postcard in English. Yesterday we looked at the use of present and past tenses. Today we are going to focus on the future forms, and we will also look at some examples of descriptive adjectives. Once again, we will take our examples from the postcard in Monday's Vitamin. THE 'GOING TO' FUTURE When we refer to the future, we are usually talking about specific plans that we have. For this reason, we use the present continuous or the going to future forms is – am – are GOING TO VERB. Both the present continuous and the 'going to' future form are used to talk about future plans. Contrast the two sentences in the examples below. Both are correct and both refer to tomorrow's plan. Examples: Tomorrow we are going to visit the town together. Tomorrow we are visiting the town together. ADJECTIVES Postcards are descriptive. For this reason, we usually include lots of descriptive adjectives. Here are some adjectives with a positive meaning: wonderful, fantastic, beautiful, amazing, gorgeous, terrific. Here are some adjectives with a negative meaning: awful, terrible, boring, unpleasant, disgusting. Examples: The weather is fantastic. The food was awful. Now you have all the information that you need to write a postcard in English. This summer, if you are going out of town (or not), why not send someone a postcard in English?
