October Week Three:
This week was a short week, but for those who had class we talked about the world of wine! Lots of vocabulary came up about the process, the tasting, the pairing, and the exultation of wine.
Learners can try a listening comprehension activity about choosing and buying wine or about wine chemistry.
For original version listening, check out a some videos from the youtube channel Spain Revealed which as videos about tasting Spanish wines: Ultimate Rioja Tempranillo, or Ribero de Duero Wine Explained.
Learners can read a dialogue of a tasting to get some familiarity with tasting vocabulary.
For original version, check out an article from the BBC, Could British Wine Conquer the World? or check out any of the many articles from the Guardian about Wine in their Food and Drink Section.
For writing this week, we are going to try some writing that is convincing! You could choose your favorite wine and write a review of it (remember to be very precise in your adjectives) or write a review of a wine-related activity or tourism event in La Rioja that you would recommend.
