I hope all of you are enjoying your time off this week. In honor of the national holidays, in most groups we talked about travelling.
One of our tertulias students recommended a great website for listening at home, Randall's ESL Listening Lab. Why not try a listening exercise about travel? Try easy, intermediate, or difficult.
There are certainly plenty of writing topics to consider. What has been your biggest travel disaster? Why is travel stressful? How will travel change in the future?
For creative writing, write a story about being in a foreign country where you don't speak the language...and you've lost all of your belongings (cash included). How do you deal with this situation?
Why not try reading some travel blogs? There are tons out there, but you could check out the Lonely Planet Blog, The PerrinPost, or, which has lots of information about how to not put your foot in your mouth abroad.
About extra stuff: because December is a short month (there will be no class between Christmas and "King's Day") I will.be offering extra classes to anyone interested on Thursday December 15th and Friday December 16th at 18:30. Please confirm if you would like to attend. Also, the extra activity form is still available to fill out online, but so far there is not much interest and everyone has different schedule preferences. December is a tough month to coordinate. If more people fill out the form, I will keep you posted, but in any case, I am planning on having a Christmas get-together after the last class before Christmas break, on Wednesday December 22nd at 20:30 at the Continental Cafe. I will bring pumpkin pie!
