New Groups this week!

We will mix up the groups this week. If you have any special requests, send an email to moodle@kevinryan.com BEFORE class. No changes after class begins.

New Club Members

This week students have the option to Start, Stop or Continue their clubs. Many students have chosen to Start new clubs, so you may see some new faces in your clubs, if you Continue. Some students who are really busy have Stopped their clubs.
If you are unsure about your clubs, you should talk to the teacher at the beginning or end of class. Once you participate in Clubs, you will have another chance to show the teacher your work in the Interview during the last week of class.

Weekly Theme: Learning from Failure

Making mistakes (small failures) is important for learning. Very important. Make mistakes, but learn from them.

Mixer (Begin the class)

Think of a time you failed, then learned from the failure. Write down key words on paper. Then turn over the paper and tell your group about it.

Club Information

Music Club: This week’s song: Failure (by Breaking Benjamin). Use SEARCH to find the song. 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.

Netflix Club: (Thursday 3, Tuesday 4) You can discuss Episode 4 (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.

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 FAILURE. 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.

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.

The Exchange Club (IVE Project): Many students have not posted anything, or answered any messages from others. Be sure to post something (or reply to another post) in the third forum: The Culture Around Us (until June 12) . You should be writing 500-1000 words each week. Try to get into a conversation with another group member. Remember, the more you write, the more you learn. Get to know the other students in the group. We will also have live Zoom meetings next week online. Ask your teacher about times.
