First off, this week is our extra activity. We are going to meet this Friday April 26th at 17:00 to discuss an exposition and coffee. Please meet below on Calvo Sotelo on the street below our class space and we will go from there.
This week was world book day. We talked about the 100 Best Books of All Time. Have you read any of these? Why not try?
For listening, try an easy activity about children's books. More advanced learners may enjoy episodes about Books That Changed the World or JK Rowling's talk aobut Failure or a short story called Keesh by Jack London.
And as for reading, obviously the best would be to read some short stories in English. This site and the VOA sitehas many options, but you may like "The No Talent Kid" by Kurt Vonnegut or "Luck" by Mark Twain (with mp3). For easier short stories, check out Short Stories for Intermediate Learners. Or you may like reading about banned books in different countries.
For writing you could write a review of a book you've recently read or explain why you think reading is important. Many of you are teachers or parents -- what can we do to encourage our kids or students to grow up to be avid readers? Or, for those who are inspiring writers, try writing a short story of your own in English!
Don't forget that next Wednesday (May 1st) is a national holiday and there isn't class.
