emergengy.... i have been given this essay on very short notice, can anyone help please? anything will be appreciated!!!

write down a grammatical structure from the following text which u would present to intermediate learners. make up some other examples of this structure. write down situations you would give your learners which illustrate how and when the structure is used. use these situations to elicit the examples you have prepared
" i can't help think about what things will be like in 10yrs. will he seem like someone from a fantasy? will he be too .... will we find that our family have nothing in common...."

First, there is an error in the text. The structure "I can't help" takes a gerund as a complement, not a bare infinitive: I can't help thinking about....

It appears that you have focused in on questions about the future. It shouldn't be that difficult to come up with scenarios that lead to a series of "What will", Who will", "When will", "How will" questions.

This use of will is for predictions- create such situationswhere people make predictions, like before a football game.;-)

Predicting football games is a bit dangerous, innit? :shock:
