Can you smell the ginko nuts on campus? They were really stinky this morning!
We had our first round of listening interactions. I was really impressed that ALL of you remembered many of our discussion skills from last semester, such as using showing interest and making eye contact.
The feedback from today's interactions is attached at the end of this entry. For next week's leaders, please include these pointers into your interactions.
I gave you new registration cards for the Really English website, and you were able to register for the program.
We have 35 units to complete for this program, so try to do 3-4 units each week. If you do this, you won't have any homework over the Christmas break.
To log-in to your account after you have registered, you need to go to this link:
If you missed our lesson, you will need to set up your Really English account by yourself.
Listening Activity: Phobias and Superstitions
In the second part of our lesson, we had a listening lesson about phobias and superstitions.
There were a few new vocabulary terms from the dialogue:
a. surpass = overcome
b. conversely = oppositie of something
c. freak out = become crazy
You did a good job with your discussions afterwards. I never knew that snakes will come if you whistle in the evening!
