Goal

It’s time for your class. Your teacher will guide you through this content so you can make the most of it. Keep this page open during your virtual lesson.


1. Revise together the vocabulary and expressions you’ve learnt in this lesson.

2. Here’s a transcript of the video. Read it together and then answer: Which of Joshua Becker’s 7 reasons do you agree with? Which do you disagree with? Why?

Some time ago, I started wearing the same thing every single day: a V-neck T-shirt and trousers. I have come to love wearing the same thing every single day, and I’m not alone in that; a lot of people are doing it. Here are some of the reasons why.

Number one: it means fewer decisions in your day. This is by far the most popular reason why people decide to wear the same thing every day. The quality of our decisions deteriorates over the course of the day. You have far more important decisions to make than what you’re going to wear each morning. Wearing the same thing eliminates that decision

Number two: less time and energy wasted. When you wear the same thing every day, you waste less time deciding what you’re going to wear in the morning. Also, maintaining, organizing and taking care of your clothes takes a lot of time. When you decide to wear the same thing every day, all of that becomes easier; you will have more time and more energy over the course of the week.

Number three: less stress. I don’t ever have to think about “oh, man! Am I wearing the right thing today? I wish I had worn this instead.” I wear the same thing and I love it.

Number four: you save money. The average American family spends over two thousand dollars a year on clothing. These are people who already have enough clothes in their closet, but just keep buying more and more to try out new things. But then they discover they don’t like them, so they have wasted time and money.

Fifth reason: I always feel put together; all of my clothes fit, match, and are my favourites. I always feel like I’m wearing something I enjoy wearing, and look good wearing as well.

Number six: less waste. The average American throws away 30kg of clothing every single year. Deciding to wear the same thing is good for the planet. It’s good for you, and it’s good for everyone else as well.

Seventh reason: it creates an iconic look. Wearing the same thing every day is the quickest way to become famous. You become known for your particular style; you look put together, classy, comfortable, and confident. You’re not constantly chasing the newest fashions, but you’re confident in who you are and how you look.

No, I’m not talking about wearing the exact same shirt or pair of underwear every single day, but having multiples of the same. Believe me, once you’ve tried it, you will never go back.


over the course of the day – during the day

far more important – much more important

takes a lot of time – consumes a lot of time

oh, man! – used to express surprise

save money – economise

more and more – more each time

waste time and money – spend time and money on something useless

put together – complete

an iconic look – a recognisable look

classy – with class

chase the newest fashions – always try to wear the newest clothes

3.   Discuss:

What are you wearing right now?

What did you wear yesterday?

What clothes do you usually wear during your different activities in the day?

4. Do you enjoy shopping for clothes? Why? Where do you usually do your shopping?

5. Imagine you are shopping for clothes. Practise the dialogue together.

Shop assistant: Can I help you?

Customer: I’m just looking for the moment, thanks.

Shop assistant: Everything in that section is on sale today; 30% off. If I can be of any help, just let me know.

(ten minutes later)

Customer:  Can I try this jumper on, please?

Shop assistant: Sure. The changing rooms are over there.

(a few minutes later)

Shop assistant: How was it?

Customer: It’s a little bit too small. Do you have this in size 10?

 Shop assistant: Have you checked the rack?

Customer: Yes, but there weren’t any.

Shop assistant: I’ll have a look in the back. Just a minute, please.

(a few minutes later)

Shop assistant: We have one in size 10, but only in blue.

Customer: It’s OK. I’ll take it.

Shop assistant: How would you like to pay for that?

Customer: Do you take debit cards?

Shop assistant: Yes, of course. With the 30% discount, your purchase comes to £29.99, including tax.

Customer:What a bargain! Thank you.
