Another week under lock down! As we settle into the rhythms and routines of life at home, it has been helpful to keep up with English class, to socialize with our classmates and keep up a sense of normalcy. As you know, I am trying to keep it light and entertaining this week, and this we we kept it superficial and talked about clothes and fashion.
We talked about our current COVID style (sweatpants and legging anyone?), trends throughout the ages, and described some outfits using the website The Sartorialist.
Next week we are going to be doing a class on music -- please send your suggestions of uplifting anthems to get us through these times!!!! Listening: Learners can try a listening activity about working on a fashion shoot, or for something a little more challenging, about Camden Fashion.
Reading: First off, learners can try any of several articles from British Council about fashion and style.
For original version reading, try any of the many articles available from Google Arts and Culture called We Wear Culture.
Writing: This week practice writing an article about keeping up with trends. Feel free to use some of the notes. Many people like to follow different styles in fashions. Is it a good or bad thing to keep up with these trends? Notes 1. slaves to fashion 2. too expensive and not practical 3. pressure from department stores
