This was our last class before the holidays! We will be taking a break to celebrate Christmas and most importantly to celebrate the end of 2021! I wish you all a restful and pleasant break. Thank you for help making 2020 a successful year despite all odds!
Enjoy the holiday and see in January. Classes resume January 11th.
Writing: This week, choose one of the random street view photographs from this website and write a text describing life in this scene. What is the daily routine like there? The weather? The sounds? Be descriptive!!!
Writing: This week, I would like you to write a story about a conflict in a small town. You can make it up or draw on your own knowledge or experiences. What are the different sides fighting for? Is there a solution to the problem?
For original version, you can practice reading some of the captions from their Instagram or website.
Writing: This week, I would like you to write an ODE TO PIZZA! Why is pizza the greatest of all foods? Please be very descriptive in your writing about the most hallowed of meals. On the contrary, if you happen to be one of those rare people who finds pizza overrated, tell me why!
This week we talked about entrepreneurship, self-employment, family business and small businesses. We talked about how these folks are weathering the pandemic and we also brainstormed creatively about new businesses to start and how we would do so.
Don't forget that next week, we are going to take a look at the newest McCown business, Hallow's Pizza. Please send me your audio message with questions about the food cart, the pizza, or the business and we will use the questions and answers in class next week. Listening: Learners can try an activity from British Council about Starting a Business or an activity about What is an Entrepreneur?
Writing: This week for writing, write a text about a business that you would like to start. What need would you be meeting? What service or product would you provide? How do you picture your day to day operating this business?
