Read around a topic

Today in class we'll begin with a practice task for next Thursday's assessment: E1 Can demonstrate understanding of a complex/problematic spoken exchange. Phew! What a mouthful.

Luckily it won't take more than half an hour. After that, we shall listen to a radio story from this morning's 6 a.m. news. I wonder how many of you got up at that time too. The story is about Carisbrook, Dunedin's stadium where rugby and cricket(?) are played. (I must confess that I have only been there once in my life!)

In the same week that we learned that our School of Languages will move to North Dunedin, we learn that Carisbrook is also to shift. Today being a Thursday, our 'Reading Day', I'd like you to look at the front page of today's ODT to read the story.

I am also including three 'links' to other stories. They may be easier to read and understand. Just 'click' on the following links to see them. Pressing the 'back' key will return you here.

I have included a story about Dunedin's railway station, as that building also was in the headlines this week. But it won't move, not as far as I know!
