This month's extra activity will be Thursday June 20th at 19:30. We are going to attend a wine tasting at Habemus Rioja (Rodríguez Paterna, 2) in English. There is a cost of 6 euros to participate which includes wine and treats. English speaking friends and family are welcome to come along. You can sign up online.
Please if you have any materials (books, magazines, DVDs, etc.), please return them if you are not using them anymore. Also, don't forget that you can sign up for summer session if you are interested! I will confirm your place ASAP.
This week we talked about ACCENT and how to improve our pronunciation, rhythm and intonation in English. Practice makes perfect, so please keep practicing this. One of the best things to do is to listen and to repeat, listen and repeat. I recommend repeat along with drills or use limericks with stress work.
For reading, try any reading exercise (like listen and read along), but read out loud paying attention to stress and intonation. For original version, try reading an article from NPR and then listen to the audio, paying close attention to the rhythm and sound of it. One article that is close to home is Spanish King Under Fire.
For writing, please write the topic of your choice (you could try a creative writing prompt) and then practice reading it out loud, paying attention to stressed words and syllables.
Don't forget that next week Monday and Tuesdays are holidays! If you have class those days and we have not arranged for a different day, please email me to find a time for you to come to class later in the week.
Have a great week!
