November Week 2
The votes are in and it's official -- this weekend will be the first extra activity! On Sunday November 13th at 12:00 we will visit an exhibit at the COAR (Barriocepo, 40) with photographs by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre that document Detroit's decline and decay and we will discuss them together there. In preparation you can read about the photographers' work, look at infographics about Detroit (1 and 2), or listen to an ESL podcast that discusses Detroit.
As a writing assignment you can write a description or critique of one of the photographs, or answer the question, "Do you think that Marchand and Meffre's photographs depict only architectural ruins or America's decline in general?" Or if you would like to do some creative writing you could choose a famous photograph and write the story behind it.
One grammar point that seems to cause some confusion is the difference between for, during and while. You can read an explanation and do some exercises here. Furthermore, the British Council website can be a good place to practice grammar and vocabulary online.
