November Week Four
This week we transformed the classroom into a TV Interview show! We took turns being celebrities, famous people and journalists, and were graced by the presence of people such as King Juan Carlos, Belén Estéban, Marcel Barceló, Janis Joplin, Homer Simpson, Mona Lisa, Beyoncé, David Bisbal, Javier Bardem, Christopher Columbus, Rafa Nadal and others.
For reading, try one of the many texts about celebrities and historical figures at Famous People English. Or for "original version reading" pick one of Time Magazine's 10 Questions.
For listening, check out one of VOA biographies with transcripts or try your hand at understanding one of these celebrity interviews or interview with Steve Ryan about learning a foreign language.
For writing, please write a letter (in proper letter format, please!) to a celebrity or famous person. Tell them why you are writing, why you are a fan (or not!) and ask them a few questions. If you have time, you could also try imagining their response to you.
This week there is original version cinema. The UPL has organized a showing of Take Shelter on Thursday November 29th at 19:30 at the Moderno Theater. On Friday November 30th at 17:00 they are showing The Man Who Would Be King at the UR.
