Here’s the Powerpoint we saw in class to practise the functional language you need for your oral exam. These structures are VERY useful when you speak to English people so REMEMBER them and WHEN to use them. This is when all your work from Básico 2 now starts to make sense. Good luck next week.

Here’s the Powerpoint we looked at in class to practise rules.
You can also practise the structures on the Pre-intermediate English File website by doing this exercise and this one.
Another way to practise using the same website is by doing the text builder exercises. Try to recreate any of the texts from the coursebook. That way, you practise structures, vocabulary and by recreating a text, you are practising writing too!

Here’s the Powerpoint we looked at in class to practise the vocabulary for the house.
You can also practise the vocabulary by doing the crossword and wordsearch on the Oxford Elementary English File website.
Do you know how expensive it is to rent or buy a house or flat in London? Look at the website www.rightmove.co.uk. Can you see the words from course? I like the flat next to Hyde Park. The hall is 50 metres!!! That is almost as big as my flat!

In unit 7A we learnt about how to behave at parties. My aunt Margaret is definitely a party animal. Click here for the recording of a conversation I had with her and answer the questions on the photocopy I gave you in class. Answers in class.
Did you notice that I use the same questions as the ones in the speaking activity on the photocopy? You can use these questions to practise talking on your own, or ask each other the questions after class. The more you practise, the easier it will be to speak.

On www.youtube.com there are many videos of the ‘Real English’ series with real speakers (mainly American). Below is one video in which the interviewer asks people, ‘What have you done today’ and ‘What did you do yesterday?’ Can you understand what people say? Try to write as many details as possible and then compare them with the answers which will be on your classroom wall next week. Enjoy listening to real English.
