3. Start-of-class speaking activity:
Prepare for a group conversation that will be carried out at the beginning of class. You will speak about a common topic in groups of 4 (+ two groups of 3). The groups will change every week.
Don’t prepare full sentences but think about the topic, find ideas & precise examples, look up vocabulary.
At the end of your 5 min group conversation, you will get extra minutes to prepare a detailed and structured recap.
One of you will be picked to present this recap to the class, talking for two minutes: intro of the topic, global presentation of the variety of opinions, two or three main points, conclusion.
You will not read from extensive notes when presenting your report.
