21st November 2006
We started our English lesson with the following riddle:
YY U R , YY U B
I C U R YY 4 me
After that, we had to do a puzzle about punctuation in groups. Then Illya explained us the importance of writing out dates (like I did in the title).
Afterwards all corrected the Punctuation letter, which we did as homework. Next, Illya told us to look to the Punctuation in books we are reading.
After having done an additional exercise to train our Punctuation in the book on pg. 48, we looked into an application letter and listened to five people, who spoke about the interviews they attended.
Before the break, we talked about our personal experiences of interviewing or being interviewed. Markus can still remember his conversation about the relationship to his sisters ;-)
Which language is used to introduce advice and problems in the tape script? The examples we did, are a guide to finding the right information during a listening.
At the end, we received a map of life. Our task was to find out a suitable story about Tony Wood’s life. But, Tony or no Tony, we learned a variety of expressions like: take the usual path, take the first step towards, were at a crossroads….
Now I am coming to the end of the road.
Lastly, the homework:
- Draw the own life map on blank paper
- Write the explanation on a separate sheet
- pg. 51 grammar
- pg. 52-53 reading
+ underline expressions with time
- Workbook pg. 32 open cloze
+ underline phrases and document it (Wiki, cards, notebook…)
