In class (10-25-2017) we discussed your translations of the “bandi” homework and began a text on prison conditions from the magazine “criminologia”. I have sent a copy of the text as well as a letter from the Japanese embassy to the office and you should receive the files via email. Please do these for the next lesson 08-11-2017.
As requested, I was given the use of a room for the conversation lab- our first meeting will be Tues. Oct. 31st at 15:30 in room 5. This lab is NOT mandatory and will be quite informal. I want to cover material we cannot study during our lessons without the concern of having to follow a lesson plan or force you to take an exam on the material. The lab should give you the chance to speak English on a regular basis. I have informed the other classes as well and I hope to see as many of you there as possible. I would like to listen to some TOEFL examples and use them for discussion as well as compare some videos on YouTube (slang vs formal language).
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you on the 31st in room 5 at 15:30.
