Level A2. (approx. 150 words.)

Target language: The passive voice both in the present and the past tenses. Linking words indicating time like: first, then, after that, next and finally.

A table is a very useful furniture item used for a very wide range of human activities like studying or eating. They are made of many different materials like wood, iron or steel. They usually consist of a board on top and four legs.

If you want to make your own table, the following instructions have to be read carefully:

First, your table is drawn on paper. Be careful, because the room must be masured before the design is made. The table might be too wide or small and it would not fit into the room once it’s finished. It would be a terrible mistake.

Next, the different parts are chosen and bought in the appropriate shops. After that screws, nails and bolts can all be used in the assembly of the components. In order to keep a better balance, some glue is also used; this way, the different parts are tightly fixed.

Finally, our table is decorated and painted with good quality paint. Don’t get frustrated if your goal isn’t reached the first time you try. Practice makes perfect.
