Good morning, afternoon evening,
Elisa, Silvia, Michela, Michele, Federica, Marco, Manuela, Francesco, Loretto, Sara, Daniele B., Daniele L.
this is London once more!
After gliding over it, http://connecting-the-dots.com/13-blog/71-gliding-over-london.html, this is another opportunity to know something more about the capital of U.K.
What is your experience of London?
What did you like most of the city?
How many different English speakers did you have the chance to speak to?
Do you have any special memories about any of them?
Let us know here as a comment and in class, when back with your mates.
Enjoy your English!
Federica: so good of you telling us about your son's experience in London. Plan to go there you too, maybe gliding over it. See the article on page 6, "London gliding" plus "Wow, London skyline", and of course "The Shard" on page 3 of the Archive. Come to class ready to speak. The same invitation to have a look at the articles is for all of you reading.
Marco: quite an enjoyable experience yours, discovering what a city is like while walking and seeing all important places to visit. I class we'll exploit it asking you questions. Be ready!
Silvia: it would be nice planning a visit to London together. In class we have expert visitors to consult. Start doing it!
Manuela: problem solved, you exist here too! Thank you for writing. When writing, think of very simple sentences, so to avoid mistakes. Subject, verb, complement. With attention to formal correctness and accuracy in writing and speaking, your English will improve fast. In class we'll speak more widely about that.
Michele: so busy days, Michele, that you made us miss you last time. Good idea going back to London once more, after experiencing English with the group. We'll speak of all your productions in class as a team work, trying to reciporocate finding mistakes.
Michela: good attempt your writing.An allotment is a portion of land/city/garden, to be used, either free or rented.
Eli: if you are interested in American English, read this page on the blog and leave your comment.
It will be a pleasure reading it!
After reading all your comments, I think we have to stimulate and develop in class the right approach to pay great attention to any writing of yours. If you want to be sure there are no mistakes in your productions, build short sentences using subject, verb, complement. Read a lot to let your mind be engaged with English. Results will surface even when unexpected.
We'll see in class in more details what mistakes can be avoided paying just a little more attention.
All of you, have a look at your writings when uploaded and see if there are mistakes you can correct by yourself. I do think so.
And be ready for next time to speak one minute of fluent English about the subject you chose, after practicing at home. Remember your mates will ask you questions.
Once more, enjoy English!
