Plans for May – End of course!

Next week Monday and Tuesday are a holiday (Tuesday, national; Monday, local).

On our first lesson together, you need to give me the April Listening Diary.

I won’t ask you to give me the May Listening Diary because you have to give me A COPY OF

  • the Writing File CHECKLIST and
  • the Speaking File CHECKLIST

on the day you do your Celebration of Learning Oral and you have to do your Celebration of Learning oral. This oral is a present/gift to us all and to yourself! Show us how much you learned/learnt! ❤ These orals will happen in the two last weeks of May! Book a date!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

When you do this, I’ll give you a piece of paper saying that you passed! For more cases, we’ll comment in class!

Remember: if you want me to check your monologue, give it to me before the last two weeks!!!

About the Celebration of Learning Orals:

You need to prepare a monologue of your own! Watch examples by students in previous courses on our youtube channel. You can also prepare one of the last three monologues in the present: Describing my house, what’s in my fridge or describing a park.

About the dialogue: in pairs, choose a dialogue we learned/learnt, and then add some “chupichup”. Use the dialogues in the Practical English section, or other dialogues in the textbook. You can also prepare a roleplay, or do the dramatized reading of longer dialogues.

And PLEASE: allow me to videoshoot your Orals! Like these adorable people did… (thanks so much again!) so other people can learn from your work! ❤ And so we can show the world that we can learn English in public education!!! ❤ 😀 ❤

Your work this week (new)

Monday and Tuesday lessons:

Handing in your Listening Diaries

Doing the October monologue (1.44, 1 or 2)

After the Monday and Tuesday lessons, you have to…

  • Do 2A, including the Vocabulary Bank – except audio 1.55 (this will be a small monologue for November, too, after we do it in class)
  • Do page 14 in 2B, including the Vocabulary Bank.
  • Work on the November monologue “Talking about Myself”. You can do it whenever you are ready, in November!
  • Old work: continue listening to my audios, and the Unit 1 audios, as part of your listening work!

On Thursday (and Monday next week because this Wednesday is a holiday) we’ll work on unit 2: checking your homework, and we’ll do the 1.55 listening activity. I’ll explain adjectives and This is / These are, That is / Those are.

On Friday I’ll check your listening diaries, and next week I’ll announce who is OK in Evaluación Continua and who needs to work a bit more!

Enjoy your bilingual week!
