Today we had our first lesson, and it was exciting. Everybody spoke a bit about themselves, and we tried to learn everybody’s names!
I gave some information on the School and this course, particularly the C1 page on TP and this blog. I presented about half of the points I have on a list we teachers were given, about the School, and mentioned a few things about our learning approach. Next day I’ll finish with all this.
Handouts. I gave out two. If you missed the lesson, please, check out the Page above and print the first two. You can read about the rest, and start printing some of the docs we’ll be using, too (script, workshop).
I asked students to send me an email to get the pdf file of the C1 Resource Pack we’ll be publishing in due time (soon). And explained I would send them an invitation so that they can become Authors in this blog. Next day they will tell us how it all went.
In every lesson you’ll have to tell us about how you used your English since we last met. So print out the listening log or diary to keep a record of your listening work (priority). This is always connected to re-telling (speaking). Think of a story you’d like to tell us, because we’re starting our work with story-telling (actual or fictional).
The other task I suggested is for you to get acquainted with the contents on this blog. Just browse all the sections, to know where you can find what. And then read bits of it this week. You can also browse the C1 Pack, so that when I start explaining methodology next week it’s easier for you to follow.
If you are an author now, post your hellos and first impressions here, if you like! And remember to dig the posts if they’re useful or you enjoyed them! 😉
Enjoy your use of English! ❤
