In this week's assignment I would like you to create a 10 question survey for your classmates. It can be about one of the following topics:

  • relationships such as family, friends &/or boyfriend/girlfriend (using some of the phrasal verbs from page 68/69)
  • future job/career (using the vocabulary from page 60)

Once you have posted your survey, visit your classmate's blogs and in the comments answer the questions to their survey.

June 10 Assignment

In today's lesson we looked at a variety of past tenses. Many of these tenses are useful when telling a story. So, today's assignment is to write a short story. You need to use all of the tenses we looked at in exercise 1 in the language focus on page 49 at least once in your story. You will also need to enhance your story by using some appropriate linking words (there is a list on page 209). More information about what to write can be found on page 51.

Hello students.

I will be taking over as your teacher for this class in June so Maria can have some time for her new baby.

I'm excited about having a blog with this class so that we can create some interesting stuff. I look forward to getting to know you all.

See you soon,
