Hi guys

In Monday’s class we looked at conditionals and how to invert them. We looked at a Prezi powerpoint that revised the conditionals, and how to invert them. See here for the Prezi: https://prezi.com/dnmepuxqyeyn/conditionals-cae/

We then did a balloon debate, in which students took on the role of famous people and tried to save themselves for a falling hot-air balloon. To finish class we played a Kahoot to consolidate the various conditionals and their inversions.

Homework: Please complete page 41 of the course book.

On Wednesday we will start by revising the conditionals and their inversions using the following Quizlet set: https://quizlet.com/22822925/cae-exp-mod-5-6-conditionals-key-word-transformations-flash-cards/

We will then practise phrasal verbs by playing a game. To finish off we will look at speaking parts 2 and 3.

Homework: Please complete pages 48 and 49- Exercise 1 and the exam task.
