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!!! ❤ 😀 ❤

Miriam’s Celebration of Learning Oral!

A great example of how to focus on the task! Enjoy! ❤

Last week Evaluación Continua Second Term

This week:

  • Your listening logs (no possible extension of the deadline)
  • A monologue in the past (e.g. My Day Yesterday)
  • Questions and Answers in the past

See link below for Q&A in the past, and Audioweb for mons.

In 1ºB we’ll also review how to answer reading comprehension questions in exams (your homework in 7A about the bios). 1ºC did this last week.

People who dropout of Evaluación Continua but who have been in Evaluación Continua until now, can catch up after the Spring Holiday, by passing the Practice Test I’ll give.

People who are not in Evaluación Continua can come to class, they can take the Spring Practice Test, but they have to come in June to do their final (two days, one for the oral and another for the listening/reading/writing tests).
