Hi guys,

In class one we continued with the theme of films and cinema. Students began by revising part 2 of the speaking exam and how to structure an answer, practising in pairs. Then we looked at page 22 of the book, completing exercise 1 and the listening exam task. After this, we completed part 3 and 4 of the speaking exam from the following PDF

FCE Speaking Exam films

To finish class we played a Kahoot to practise some vocabulary related to cinema in general.

Homework: Please complete the reading exam task on page 26.

In class two we studied the passive voice. We began with a cryptic stories in which students substituted clue words with the passive structure. We then listened to exercise 1 on page 28 of the book, and students copied down the passive sentences they heard. We looked at the rules in the book and went through how to use the passive in different tenses (in exercise 2). Students then quizzed each other, providing clues about different countries using the past and present passive voice. To finish, students worked in pairs to complete exercise 5 on page 29 of the book.

Homework:  Please complete question 1 or 2 of the exam task on page 24
