April Week Three:
This week as we approach a new stage of the pandemic, we discussed social life! Hanging out with friends, making friends, catching up... Finally, we are back at it!
Learners can try an activity from British Council about Meeting an old friend or Leisure Activities from Randalls.
For original version listening, try an episode of This American Life, such as To Make A Friend, Be A Friend or Why Can't We Be Friends?
Learners can try a reading comprehension activity from Breaking New English that friends help you live longer or The importance of friendship in films.
For original version, read an article called What Did COVID Do to Friendship? | The New Yorker.
This week for writing, respond to one of the following prompts:
How has the quality or nature of your friendships changed as an adult? What do you love most about your adult friendships and what do you miss most about your childhood and teen friendships?
Do you have rules or beliefs about friendships and what one should or shouldn’t do in order to be a good friend? What are these “shoulds” and where did they come from?
