Our topic this week was the Zika virus, which we used to talk about greater topics such as health, healthcare and prevention.
Learners can try any of several news stories about Zika from VOA Learning English: WHO Concerned about Zika in Southeast Asia, More Zika in Florida, First Case in Hong Kong or Zika Could Affect Adult Brains.
For original version listening, try the Science VS podcast.
Learners can get some more information about Zika by reading about it at Breaking News English
For original version, try an article about the First Case of European Microcephaly or Why There are More Infectious Disease Outbreaks. The NYTimes also has numerous articles and resources.
This week for writing, please write a short composition explaining what is the zika virus. Try to use some of your new vocabulary (contagious, outbreak, to come down with, etc.). Then propose what people and governments can do to prevent the spread of this infectious virus.
Don't forget this weekend is Cameros Weekend, a weekend of linguistic immersion in beautiful San Roman. If you're interested in coming, get in touch!
