I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. Don't forget that if you missed class on Monday and would like to find a way to make it up, let me know!
This week in class we talked about advice and many of you had a lot to say about the different problems that came up in class. So, in order to keep up your hard work at home, go ahead and start with listening. Learners may enjoy giving a go at a Listen A Minute activity about Advice (MP3, transcript and quiz) or Randall's Listening Lab exercise about Medical Advice.
For reading, the most obvious choice is to check out advice columns! Some are specifically for English learners, like Dear Ai or What Would You Do? Others are in "original version" like Dear Abby, Since You Asked, and Dear Prudence. Or you may like reading Best Advice My Mother Gave Me or The Best Advice?
A great writing exercise would be to respond to some people's questions on the advice columns above. Or try responding to some of the questions from class:
Have you filled in your preference for March's extra activity online? What are you waiting for?
Last but not least, there is original version cinema at the Cañas cinema. They are showing Roman Polanski's Carnage, from the 19th to 25th of March at 20:00
---When we are asking for advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice. -- Saul Bellow
