1. Listen to the dialogue and write down the modal verbs you hear. Then identify their meaning.

Andy: Hurry up, guys.

James: We’re coming … Ouch! What was that?

Andy: Oh no! A snake! Did it bite you?

James: Yes, on my foot.

Andy: Poor you! That must hurt!

James: Yes, and it could be really dangerous …

Andy: Calm down.

James: It might be a poisonous snake, but it can’t be deadly. There aren’t any deadly snakes in Britain.

Andy: I’ll phone the doctor. (on the phone) Hello, my friend’s got a snake bite on his foot. What should we do? … Sorry, I don’t understand. What do you mean? Are you saying that we should call for an ambulance, or keep on walking? … Oh, I see! Thanks.

James: What does the doctor think?

Andy: You have to go to hospital. But we don’t have to call an ambulance, so it can’t be too serious.

Modal Verbs


«Must» is most commonly used to express certainty. It can also be used to express necessity or strong recommendation. «Must not» can be used to prohibit actions, but this sounds very severe; speakers prefer to use softer modal verbs such as «should not» or «ought not» to dissuade rather than prohibit.

Examples: This must be the right address! - certainty

Students must pass an entrance examination to study at this school. - necessity

You must take some medicine for that cough. - strong recommendation

Jenny, you must not play in the street! - prohibition «Must not» vs. «Do not have to»

«Must not» suggests that you are prohibited from doing something. «Do not have to» suggests that someone is not required to do something.

Examples: You must not eat that. It is forbidden,it is not allowed.

You don’t have to eat that. You can if you want to,but it is not necessary.

Exam Skill Builder

4. Read the text and choose its best title from those given in the box below.

1. A study of the worst disasters that have ever affected people on the Earth.

2. A description of the threats facing humanity and how probable they are.

3. An essay about how humanity will change in the future.

The End of the World: The Truth or the Myth?

A. During this century the quantity of greenhouse gases will probably double and the average global temperature will rise by at least 2 degrees. That’s a bigger increase than any in the last 1,5 million years. This could completely alter the climate in many regions and lead to disasters such as world food shortages, mass migration, wars for water and other resources.

B. In the last century we have had four major flu epidemics as well as HIV and SARS. There will certainly be another one in the near future. A virus probably won’t wipe out the whole human race. However, in 1918 influenza killed twenty million. A similar epidemic could be even worse today.

C. It hasn’t happened yet, but one day it is almost certain that a terrorist group will get the necessary materials and technology to use weapons of mass destruction. A nuclear, chemical or biological terrorist attack will almost certainly happen in the next thirty years.

D. Over a long period, the risk of dying as a result of a meteor hitting the Earth is about the same as the risk of dying in a plane crash. A huge meteor hits the Earth about once every million years. It will happen again, and when it happens, an enormous cloud of dust will rise into the atmosphere. This will block out sunlight and kill plants. However, the most adaptable species (humans, for example) will probably survive.

E. By 2050 robots will probably be able to think like humans. They will look after us at home like mechanical servants. But they will also carry out more complex tasks. For example, they will be able to work as doctors or teachers. Some people think that the fantasies of science-fiction films will come true. Humans won’t become extinct, but we will join together with advanced robots and make a new species that will live forever.

F. Approximately every 50,000 years there is a volcano eruption. The consequences are terrible and can last for years. It covers the land with ash, and a huge cloud of sulphuric acid circles the Earth. Daytime is like s moonlight night. Ice forms in the tropics. A super-volcano is twelve times more likely than a large meteorite impact.

So, there they are. The future is full of dangers and the world will end one day. However, I really don’t feel too worried. It may be irrational, but I actually feel optimistic. I think it’s going to be very hard to kill off the human race. And I’m quite looking forward to having my robot servant.
