– Do exercises 8.4, 8.7, and 8.12 in the textbook.
– For the worksheets on the future forms and conditional sentences make sure that you mark a couple of examples where you're not exactly sure that you have come up with a viable solution. Give possible alternatives to your solution and explain why they might work as well.
