My apologies for the delay this week, I hadn't realized there was a glitch in the scheduling for the email server this week. Now on to the homework!
This week we discussed TV and specifically the phenomenon of Norwegian SLOW TV. Do you think Slow TV could work in Spain? Listening: Learners can start with an activity from BBC Learning English about Slow TV or a listening comprehension activity about the TV Guide.
For original version listening, I highly recommend listening the latest episode of Invisibilia about Slow TV which was the inspiration for our class: The Great Narrative Escape. Or
Writing This week, choose one proverb and write an essay about it. Do you agree with the sentiment? Why or why not? Do you think that is useful today? Do you have a real-life illustration of this proverb?
Last week we discussed different events in professional life (conferences, conventions, seminars) and in personal life (weddings, birthday parties, openings), but this week we took it a step further and imagined planning an event like this.
This week we talking about fixing things: renovating, repairing, mending, fixing, this topic is relevant in many aspects of life from homes, cars, computers to clothes. Listening: Learners can try an intermediate listening activity about computer problems. For something more challenging try listening about home repairs and car repairs.
