It was really great to meet all of you today. You're such a lively group!!! I'm really looking forward to our lessons this year.
Syllabus and Schedule:
We had a short introduction activity and you got to meet your classmates. We then went looked at the syllabus and our course schedule. You can find all of this information in the Oral English 2 --> Course Information section.
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 learnt expressions for agreeing and disagreeing.
When you want to ask for somebody's opinion, you can use these expressions:
1. What are your feelings on this?
2. What do you think about this?
Be careful when you use this expression:
Do you agree with...?
We use this to ask if another person agrees or disagrees with another opinion. For example:
Kana: What do you think about Aogaku campus?
Kohei: In my opinion, it's too crowded.
Kana: Naoko, do you agree wtih Kohei's opinion?
Naoko: Yes, I do. It's always crowded in the cafeteria.
