November -- Week Two
This week we tried our hand at improving dynamic conversation, specifically we practiced interrupting eachother and asking questions. You can review the vocabulary and expressions common to English conversation. Also, some of you may need to review question tags.
For reading, try reading some people's conversations and dialogues that also explain some common idioms, such as Are You a Regular? I´m Through Working Overtime, and It's My Treat.
Try listening to Katia's Weekend or a conversation about getting traffic tickets. For "original version" listening, you may enjoy StoryCorps, where many people tell their anecdotes. They have some animated adaptations of stories and they are available with subtitles in English such as: Facundo The Great.
And finally, try writing a dialogue where one person tells the other a story of something important that happened to them and the other interrupts with questions and comments.
This week there is original version cinema on Friday November 16th at 17:00. They are showing Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close at the University of La Rioja.
Also, if you are interested in participating in this month's extra activity, please tell me what your availability is in this online poll.
Let us make a special effort to stop communicating with one another so we may have some conversation.
