Latest class and ... creat your own blog

Hi there!!

How are you?! I hope you are enjoying your much deserved weekend!!

Last class we got in groups using some classic bands cards. In groups, you worked on a questionnaire on Second Language and Teaching Styles. At the end of the class we shared the results on the questionnaire, although we did not get to finish.

Next class, we'll finish checking the answers and we'll deal with chapters 1 and 2 on Task Based Language Teaching.

So, for homework, you have to read the above mentioned two chapters and you have to write a paragraph or two (to hand in) reflecting on the results you got in the quiz to find out about your teaching style. You should say what the result was, how you feel about it and what you think about it. Remember to try to shake off prejudices...

Also, here I share a tutorial on how to create your own blog with blogger. I picked this tutorial, but if you prefer to see one in Spanish there are plenty in YouTube. You should create your blog within the next ten days. Once you have created it, publish a comment sharing the https

Also, remember you can create your blog individually or with a partner.So that is a decision you should make very soon.

The only requirement to create a blog with blogger is to have a gmail account, so, if you don't have one yet, please create one.

If you have any doubts, publish a comment so I can help you.

Hi there!!

I want to let you know that tomorrow I will be absent because my daughter is sick.

Still, those of you who are doing the practice lessons with Ms Dominguez should meet her at Die Engel at 6 pm, as we had arranged. Those of you who are not doing the practice lessons this year can go if you want, but it is not obligatory.

Also, check the blog in the next few days because I will share instructions for your blogs...

Take care and see you soon!!!

Hi again!

Remember how last class we mentioned sociolinguistics and some of the topics it studies? In that context we mentioned some conditions that have been studied that should be respected for successful communication to occur.

Well, here is some more information on the topic, in case you find it interesting!

April 14th

Hi there!!

Yesterday we had our second class. First we got into three groups (depending on birth date) and then we did a couple of activities with the purpose of defining language and its properties. We also very briefly discussed what teaching and learning are.

For next class you should think of a definition of teaching and learning. Also, you should read chapter 13 by Cook about teaching and learning styles.

Bear in mind that next Thursday we'll meet with Miss Dominguez at Die Engel , at 6pm to work both on the platform and the blog.

Oh! And...
