Eighth week

Hello everyone,

Last week we learnt many things!!

-How to refer to the future: arrangements, intentions, predictions (with or without evidence), decisions (instant or planned), promises, offers, suggestions.... That's a lot! So congratulations; you did very well.

- Personality adjectives. Try this quiz!! You will listen to a definition, for example: "A person who is quick at learning new things", and you have to choose one of three adjectives.

Here you will find a useful activity about synonyms related to this topic.

- We also learnt reflexive pronouns and reciprocal pronouns.

You have several handouts as homework: Handout 12 and 13; finishing unit 1C in the workbook and preparing a monologue: you will speak about two members in your family next Tuesday.

Watch this video "We are family" by Sister Sledge and do the activity in handout 13. It is a very special live performance:

Here you have the key to handout 13

We also spoke about "Bonfire Night", which is celebrated every 5th of November. Lewes is a town in England which is famous for this celebration. You can watch here what happened in that city last Thursday while we were in class. (How jealous!!!)
