We had a very busy review lesson today! Just one more lesson, and we are finished our first semester.
After speed discussion, we reviewed opinion giving structure. Please see the slides below for opinion structure. Next semester, we will continue building our opinion giving skills.
Opinion Structure Review
After our opinion giving activity, we reviewed how to improve writing your blog comment (and your writing skills in English). For this week's blog comment, make sure you include the advice from today's lesson.
Finally, I gave everyone their presentation evaluations. I also reviewed our course guidelines about attendance and lateness.
If you miss 5 or more classes each semester (10 for both semesters), you CANNOT pass our course. For example, if you missed 7 classes this semester, you can only miss 3 classes next semester.
Lateness is unacceptable in our course. If you are more than 20 minutes late, you will be marked as absent. Train delays are unacceptable excuses for being late. Trains often have trouble in the morning, so you need to make sure you leave your home early enough so that you arrive on time.
Lateness is NEVER acceptable when you have a discussion or a presentation.
All of this information is in your course syllabus that you received on the first day of classes, and it is also on the website in the Oral English 1 section.
