Sixth week

Hi there,

Did you enjoy our classes last week?

We were revising past tenses, we were learning about the structure of narrative texts and I gave you some hints to write argumentative texts. Don't forget to write your compositions and your opinions.

We also learnt how to use "Time clauses" with a preposition and a gerund , as well as how to speak about habits in the past with "used to" and "would", to be both aspects included in your compositions.

Thanks to Tíscar, Verónica, Juan and Loli, who told us some jockes and gave us some information about a sportsperson.

We also chose our students representatives! I know you two will do your best!

Don't forget your homework (Time clauses, workbook 1B, and compositions), try to practice as much as you can, and next week we will start learning the future.

Here you have the key to handout 9 (past tenses and articles)

Fifth week

Hello everyone,

How is it going?

Last week we were revising the different ways to convey past actions adn the use of the article "the". We were also talking about football and hinted ways to improve our narrations and our opinion essays. In phonetics, we learnt how to produce and identify the vowel sounds in "horse" and "bird". I think you should practice saying them in different sentences.

Next week we will improve these two types of texts, we will continue talking about sport (you had to do the exercises on Vocabulary and Reading in unit 1B, don't forget to do that. We will also start speaking about the future using vocabulary related to families.

Here you have some more exercises on sports so that you can widen your knowledge and vocabulay about them.
