This past week we focused on the theme 'traveling' . In case you were absent, you will have the opportunity to give a presentation on December 12 (Wed.) or 17 (Mon.).
You will answer the question: Where would you recommend people go if they visit your country?
You will have 3-5 minutes to complete your presentation. There is a sign-up paper in the classroom for each class for you to choose a date. You should discuss 3-4 things people can do in the city you recommend and can use powerpoint or bring photos on a flashdrive.
You will also write your presentation and turn it in. Hereis a sample paragraph and you can listen to a sample presentation.
We also listened to a long dialogue called Meg's Travels. I recommend you listen again and practice.
