It's almost Friday, so you can say TGIF tomorrow. Do you remember that expression from our lesson?
We reviewed expressions to ask for and to give an opinion, and also expressions to agree and disagree with opinions. Please review these expressions because we will use them in every lesson.
In next week's class, we are going to start our discussions. Each students has to be a discussion leader twice during the spring semester. You got a copy of the schedule in class, but there is also a copy in the OE2 Course Information section on the website.
For the last part of our lesson, we learned where to find articles for discussion topics on the website Breaking News English. We also learned how to complete your discussion worksheet. You'll need to complete a worksheet before you lead your discussion. You can find How to Complete Your Discussion Worksheet in the Discussion section of the website.
