Last class of June

Hi there!!

Today we had an unusual class: shorter, with people coming and going and your attention on what was to come... Still, I feel we managed to have a very profitable class!!

As we have said, and as every teacher knows, you may arrive at a class with a plan in mind only to realize that the conditions are not given to follow your plan.... Under those circumstances some teachers may decide to stick to their plan all the same... However, I believe that flexibility and adaptability are two essential conditions to be a good teacher. Also, I believe that it is crucially important to be coherent: one's actions should be in agreement with one's words...

So, today, after providing feedback on the results of the term test, we focused on what was in your minds. Fortunatelly for all of us, the topics were closely related to our subject, so we "killed two birds with a stone". You revised for your test and we started dealing with the Natural Approach. I hope you found it useful!!

Bear in mind that we are not having classes next Friday (July 3rd) but we are having classes on the following Friday (July 10th). For that day remember a) to bring your student's cards for me to sign, and b) to read the chapter on the Natural Approach and answer the questionnaire about it.

Also, those of you who need to sit for the make up test, remember it will be on July 17th.

Well, all that remains for me to say is...

Class before the term test

Hi there!!

Yesterday we had our last class before the term test... so we did a quick revision. We also dealt with chapter 14, on CLT.

Remember that for next class you have to study all the chapters we have discussed so far.

Here I leave you a link of a useful article on study strategies:


Ok... have a great weekend and study hard!!
