First off, those of you who are interested in summer sessionclasses, please fill out your schedule preferences in anonline form so I can start forming groups ASAP.
This week, we talked about theater, actors and actresses and even tried our hand at acting with some role plays and drama games in class. You can expand on this topic at home this week by doing some of the homework suggestions below.
Let's start with listening. Listen a Minute has an easy exercise about actors (mp3, tapescript, quiz). ESLPod has a good listening activing about Seeing a Play. For a bigger challenge, try Space Radio Theater. Other interesting resources are Learn English Through Movies and Storylinewhere famous actors read children's stories.
Now, on to reading. Try this reading comprehension activity about Hollywood stars. Or check out the BBC activityTheatre. You can try this quiz of actors, Who Am I? or see how much does an A-list actor make and spend?
Finally, try some writing. You could write a description or biography of an actor that you admire, or try your hand at writing a short dialogue between two characters.
Don't forget that Monday June 11th is a local holiday, so Monday classes have been moved to Thursday June 14th.
--The theater is so endlessly fascination because it's so accidental. It's so much like life. -- Arthur Miller
