Today we looked at part 7 of the reading and use of english exam. We started off by speaking about our family history and ancestry, and generally about diversity in Spain. We watched the following video and discussed it. https://vimeo.com/169077423
We then looked at a sample of part 7 and analysed it for contextual and grammatical clues.
Homework: please complete the exam handed out in class.
Today we started by talking about festivals in Spain, and how they are celebrated. We then looked at an example question from part two of the writing exam (specifically the report question) and how to answer it. We completed phrases that are relevant when writing a report, and a suitable structure. We finished the class with a video about cheese rolling in the UK.
In your English class you have been discussing festivals around the world. Your tutor has asked you to write a report on a popular festival in your country that may interest other students. Your report should:
Describe the event, saying where and when it takes place
Say how popular it is and why
outline some changes you think should be made
Write your report in 220-260 words in an appropriate style.
