Firstly, don't forget that this week is our holiday party! We will celebrate Christmas with some drinks and snacks and do an activity called a yankee swap on Thursday December 14th 20:30. Please confirm your attendance by Wednesday! (And don't forget, you're welcome to drag along a friend if they'd like to partake in the fun).
This week we practiced agreeing and disagreeing using the expressions SO DO/DID, and NEITHER DO/DID. Try your hand at a quiz here and here.
Listening: Learners can check out some of these expressions in context from movies. Can you try dictating any of these sentences to check your comprehension? Or you could watch a video about agreeing and disagreeing.
Writing: This week I'd like you to write out a dialogue between two people trying to find common ground. It could be two people on a first date, or new roommates, or even strangers on a train. Make sure you use small talk as well as the expressions we saw in class.
