Week 10 News (June 13-19)
Weekly Theme: Families
My father says that “Families are not just one thing, they are the most important thing. This week we will be talking about families.
Mixer (Begin the class)
Think of a family member. Who is the most interesting? Do you have a crazy uncle? Or a sister who is famous? Or a father who is a perfect father? Or maybe you have a cousin who is in a little trouble. Write down key words, then turn over your paper and tell your group members.
Music Club: Two songs this week: Family Song (by ELF Kid’s videos) is a simple song. For a more difficult song, try Family Portrait by Pink. This song is by a girl whose parents are always fighting. Use SEARCH to find the song. New: Some classes have started a Line Group to suggest songs to each other. Your class can do that too.
Please remember that you can only do 3 tries a day on your free software. So don’t wait until the last minute. Try a little each day. If you have not downloaded it yet, get it on your smartphone: Lyricstraining.com. You will have a chance to talk about last week’s song in class. You can do more than one song a week. Choose any other you want.
Photo Club: Some groups were posting many pictures with questions and answers about Seasons. Thank you to those groups. Remember, if you write more, you will participate more. This week’s Topic is FAMILY. You can use old photos, but they should be photos you take. Remember to describe the photo as much as you can. And ask questions about it.
Netflix Club: (Thursday 3, Tuesday 4) You can discuss Episode 5 (Season 1) in class. Here is the list of questions. Make your own questions first, then use the list. Then after class this week, watch Episode 5 to prepare for next week. Remember, watch it twice. First time without 字幕. Then again with 字幕. It is about social media, a reality TV show called The Circle. Please do not watch ahead. Wait for the teacher to tell you when to watch each episode. ONE Episode EACH WEEK.
Speaking Club: (Wednesday 2nd) No more speaking club this semester. Not enough students signed up for it.
Assistant Teacher Club: Please go to tellicorp Moodle and add your ideas to the forum for topics. I will add more discussions this week.
The Listening Club: (Tuesday 4th) The teacher has added extra EnglishCentral videos to watch for more listening practice. If you don’t have English Central use these: My English Family, Family Size, and Family Members.
The Exchange Club (IVE Project): Our FINAL section starts today with GIFTS. This is your last chance to get points by posting and discussing different kinds of gifts. Our last day for IVE is June 26. We will also have live Zoom meetings next week online. Ask your teacher about times.
Comment Club: Read the article about Japanese Family Rules and make comments on it.
