First off, this week is our Extra Activity: Coffee, Tea, and Poetry on Friday at 17:00 at our normal class space. We will enjoy a cup of something warm and dicuss a poem together. Please confirm your attendance in an online form.
This week we practice some common expressions in English to used to convince someone of something and to express your strong convictions. We used debates and pretended to be the angel and the devil on someone's shoulder to convince them to act one way or another when facing a moral quandry. You may want to review the expressions used to give an opinion or support an opinion.
Now this week for reading, try Opinions. For reading in "original version" I recommend you look at some of the arguments at debate.org about topics such as Is Underage Drinking Ever Okay? Should humans be cloned? or Is Climate Change man-made?
For listening, try Medical Experts Debate Value of Alcohol Use. More advanced students could try BBC activity about argue, persuade, and advise.
Don't forget the writing! You could write out a dialogue of a debate between two people responding to one of these topics:
Last but not least, this week there is original version cinema on Friday November 23rd at 17:00 they are showing the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe at the University of La Rioja.
Oh, and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
