It was really great to meet all of you today. You are a talkative group! I'm really looking forward to our lessons this semester.
Syllabus and Schedule:
We had a short introduction activity and you got to get to know each other. We then went looked at the syllabus and our course schedule. We have a lot of assignments to do this semester, so if you have any difficulties, make sure you let me know so that I can help you.
We had a short activity to help you learn some expressions for asking for and giving your opinion. Make sure to support your opinion with a reason and/or example.
We also learned expressions for agreeing and disagreeing with opinions. The expression "Tell me about it!" is a slang expression, and it is used to show strong agreement.
We learned how to complete a discussion worksheet. You will have to download the worksheet and complete it before your discussion. In the Discussion Skills section, you can find the slide presentation from our lesson "How to Complete your Worksheet". There are also links to different English language newspaper sites in the Useful Links section.
We'll be going on a theater field trip to see the musical production of The Secret Garden. Some of you will go on Thursday, May 15 and other on Friday, May 15. I will reserve the tickets for us, so make sure to bring 2500 for your ticket to next week's class. I'll collect the money and pay for the tickets.
Enjoy your weekend!
