Goal

Let’s start the lesson with some reading. You can read it on your own, or play the audio and follow along. Once you have finished, you can go to the next step.


Being an Actor Is Not Easy


Last Friday there was a casting call for a play, and the day before, I was more than ready for it. I had spent the whole month rehearsing for this audition. I was sure the role would be mine.

I had read the whole play and had studied all my lines. I had asked for a day off work, so I could attend the casting call. I had practised my lines in front of all my friends and family, even my cat. I had also bought a new suit to wear on the day of the casting because I was hoping to cause a good impression on the director to get the role. I had even learned to speak with a French accent because it was a Molière play.

Now it was finally Friday! But unfortunately, much to my dismay, I woke up with a terrible flu! I couldn’t even stand, let alone audition for a play and do a French accent. After all the hard work I had put in, there was nothing I could do. One thing is certain: being an actor is not easy.

Reflection


  1. What do the phrases in blue have in common?
  2. Do they refer to events happening before or after the audition day?

The answers are on step 3.

Conclusion

Have you finished? Then you can move on to step 2.
