Two old worksheets
Dear colleagues,

I need your help. Some time ago I downloaded two great worksheets but I don īt know how, I īve lost them. They are called "Most Frequently Used Expressions -I" and "Most Frequently Used Expressions -II". They have lots of expressions for speculating, summarizing, ordering, expressing two points of view, justifying your opinions, asking for information, etc.

I īd be very grateful if you coud tell me the link where I can downloaded them again or the name of the person who uploaded them.

Thanks in advance!!

Here īs the thing I wanted to help and tried looking but 0 results. Either the user has deleted the wss or his/her account has been cancelled or else you got the title wrong.
Could these be the ones youīre looking for?
If so, you did get the title wrong;)

Dear Nichi,
this sounds really ineresting. I would love to help you, I have tried searching ESLP but in vain... Could you scan the printables if you have them printed? and share the jpg here on forum? Maybe some members will remember the author...
Make a jpg of the printable and share it here. It might help!
Or retype the beginning of the printable so we can see what we are trying to find...

If you have one of those printables as a MS Word document, try to have a look in the details, there might be the name of the author...

Dearest Sophia,
I think you got them! Clever girl! Congrats!

Thank you very much four replies!!

Dear Claudiafer -  The first thing I did to look for them was what you have said but 0 results:(

Dear Ueslteacher - Thank you very much for your effort. Your documents are really interesting but they īre not those I īm looking for.

Dear Moravc - Your idea is great. I have scanned one of them, the other one is very similar. When I printed them I did it in black and white but I think the original ones were orange. I mean, the boxes where the expressions are were orange. I don īt remember if I did some changes or not but basically the appearance of the worsheet was as in the scanned document.

Thanks a lot for your help!!

Dear Ueslteacher,

Best regards!!!

Maybe it īs deleted. Nichi, do you remember the author of "the expressions"?

Hi guys! Have a look at the list I retyped above.
Maybe some of the senior members will be able to find the printable if he/she searched his/her Eslprintables downloads.
Search for these phrases included in the printables:
"Have you got any plans for"
"I see what you mean"
