causative have and get

ausative "have"

Resource centre - English grammar - causative "have"


Have + object + past participle -- to have something done
Have + object + bare infinitive -- to have someone do something

Functions and examples

We use causative have when arranging for someone to do something for us.
They repaired their car. (they did it themselves)
They had their car repaired. (they arranged for someone to repair it)
I cut my hair yesterday. (I cut it myself)
I had my hair cut yesterday. (I went to the hairdresser)

We also use causative have when someone does something to us.
Bill had his money stolen by a thief.

Important points

Get is possible instead of have, usually in informal spoken English.
I'm going to get my car fixed tomorrow.

We can also use have someone do something to talk about giving instructions or orders which is more common in American English.
I had my assistant type the report.
I'll have my lawyer look into it.

Arrow Teaching causative

quote  I ask students to imagine they were rich and could have all sorts of things done for them, annoying everyday chores that nobody likes doing plus some luxury pampering that money allows for.

I give a few examples of my own:

I'd have my nails done once a week.
I'd have my garden weeded and my lawn mowed.
I'd have my bedroom redecorated in beautiful oriental sumptuous colours and fabrics.
I'd have the evening meal cooked by a professional cook.
I'd have my shopping done and the house cleaned from top to bottom every two days.

This would leave me time to do the things I enjoy, like reading, chatting to friends, going for walks and playing tennis."

quote  I give each student a drawing of a town, with lots of different businesses. I first elicit what each business does (i.e. in the hair salon they cut your hair, at the mechanic they fix your car... etc) to check vocabulary. Then I introduce the grammar and ask what you can have done in each - in the hair salon I can have my hair cut, at the mechanic I can have my car fixed, etc."

quote  I write the following sentence on the board: I have my hair cut every week.

1. Elicit the FORM from the students (have/has + noun + past participle)
2. Use the following concept questions to elicit YES or NO:
Do I cut my hair? Ss: NO
Does somebody else cut my hair? Ss: YES
Do I pay money? Ss: YES
3. If you cut your hair yourselves, how would you say that? I elicit: I cut my hair.
4. Elicit that every week expresses "a habit", and have is in the present simple tense
5. Write the following on the board: house/clean and elicit I have my house cleaned
Of course I repeat the concept questions to make sure that my students grasp the new structure, and I have them drill it (whole class/individuals).
6. Written practice.

Good luck.

quote  In a previous class I ask my students to tell me about the services they need and the establishments that are near their homes or the ones they usually go to. According to the information they give, I elicit the services and I write on the board some examples like

My computer is not working, I need to get it fixed.

I ask my students to go out of my classroom with me and pretend that they are school inspectors. The students are asked to mention all the problems they see in the school. They find out problems in teams like:

The pool is dirty, the steps are chipped, the handrail is scratched.

When we go back to the classroom, they must give a solution to all the problems they saw or identified. We all check the answers and correct them as a group. As a follow-up activity, I ask them to check the problems they see in their house and give solutions for homework.

I hope you like this idea. This is a real effective communicative activity."
Prof. German Albavera

quote  Family - friends and favours.
Students work on the importance of working as a team inside the family so the house and errands are done on time. They comment about how friends help each other in good and bad moments. They make posters with lists of things the get/have done by others. They choose which favour was the most memorable."

quote  Question:
"3 people have had money stolen from their offices"
This looks like causative but uses "have" + "had". Anybody know how to teach this use?"

quote  Al - this is causative in the present perfect. I'd suggest teaching it in conjunction with "Have you ever..." type questions."

quote  I usually ask my students to think about the things they don't like or don't know how to do by themselves. Then I ask them how they manage to get them done, I repeat some of the first answers with the causative form. Then the rest of the students are asked to model according to the new type of sentences I have introduced."

quote  I ask the class who is scared of going to the dentists. Then I tell them all the work I had done when I was young (6 teeth out, a brace for 2 years, now I'm having my wisdom teeth out) and put them in pairs to tell their partners how much dental work they've had done (extra vocab too).

Then you can elicit a few modal sentences from one of the students, put it on the board and clarify the form and meaning.

In changing it into the active it can be quite funny, as you can't really take our own wisdom teeth out. You can even bring in some gory pictures! :)

quote  I use pictures of a dress, hair, a car and a house and ask how these things are made: are they made by our hands or other people's hands? I elicit answers from the students and present the rule to them after writing 3 or 4 examples on the board. I give extra examples focusing on the tense of each sentence (present - past).

quote  I put on the board pictures showing a.)broken down car b.)mechanic repairing it. Then I say: I had a problem with my car and took it to the mechanic and write on the board:
"I had my car fixed". Then ask: a.)did I fix it? Students answer "No" b.)did the mechanic fix it? Students answer "yes" c.)did I pay for it? They answer "yes". Finally I write on the board the form of causative.

Dahsyatnya Tsunami di Jepang

contoh text reviewWe Americans hold something of an enchanted view of Eastern Philosophy. Buddhist Monks turn up regularly in our films to dispense just the right advice at just the right time to the hero, and we sell calendars every year full of Buddhist sayings like “see the truth, and you will see me”. We don’t stop and think about how terrible the plumbing might be in a monastery, or how awful it might be to refuse to swat the mosquitoes infecting you with dysentery because they might be your mother incarnate. For us, Stephen Schettini’s memoir, “The Novice”, is an injection of pure unbridled truth that forces us to see rather than simply suggesting it. Stephen Schettini grew up Catholic and, disenchanted with the blind structuralism of his native religion, left to become an ordained Buddhist monk and taught in Switzerland for eight years. “The Novice”, is a remarkable tale of religious extremes, and how Schettini left both respectfully, to achieve a wisdom of his very own. The dichotomy that’s created between Catholicism and Buddhism is part of what makes this book so engaging. Schettini manages to remain respectful to both even while admitting his own disengagement as a childhood student of a strict Catholic school, and in turn as an adult teacher of Buddhism. His prolific sincerity pushes the narrative forward with intelligent humor and insight, and the steady stream keeps you afloat from beginning to end. A remarkable feat given the sensitivity of its subject. Ultimately, Schettini’s book is more about Schettini himself than either of the religions that he addresses, and that might just be what makes it so agreeable. Rather than agreeing or disagreeing with him, you’re more apt to take from “The Novice” exactly what you bring to it. If you are unshakable in your Christian faith you’ll see Schettini’s incredible journey as that of a lost and wandering soul. The book would agree with that. However, if you’re agnostic or atheist, then “The Novice” will second that as well. Schettini leaves the book on somewhat of an ambiguous note, with his leaving the monastery for good, uncertain of what he is to do next. This reinforces the notion that each individual’s spiritual future is in their own hands, and that as much as man might try, there are no strict rules in matters of faith. “The Novice” is an enlightening and enthralling read that towers as high as any religious text in its counter stance of uncertainty. Schettini reminds us that “faith, belief and devotion are means to an end” rather than “ends in themselves”. Even its title suggests the futility of ever really knowing the answers that organized religion feigns to solve. His book puts so poignantly what could take a lifetime to discover, and devout followers of any religion, or no religion, would be wise Read more:
