Hey Jude

Let's try to sing this song, and remember it. It's going to remind us of Otago Polytechnic Languages Centre 2007

Day 23 - Fashion

Is it because yesterday was 'Women's Day', or is it just a coincidence? Whatever, the topic for today is Fashion.

Let me start you off with some sentence construction. I have written up a story in a series of short sentences. Each sentence has had its words mixed up, so it is your job to rearrange them into meaningful statements.

We'll follow that up with some 'Board Grammar'.

And, because we have a special Conversation Hour planned, we may only have a little time left over to do a collaborative writing exercise.

Now, we may not have a chance to do much more ESOL, but if we do the next topic will be Odd book titles.

This ESOL online site is also good for your children. It is New Zealand based!

Day 22 - A broken water pipe

We've looked at that story of the burst water pipe, so I'll choose another story from the same site to use for board grammar.

After that, we'll look at the body language video that we didn't have time to.

Let's talk further also about optimizing our time in the Computer Suite in the future.

After today's interesting topic, how about something more fashionable on Tuesday?

Here is a list of ESOL web sites.
