  1. Reports from students who did  not present last time.
  2. What book did you choose from the list? (Many students chose “Robinson Crusoe”. I wonder why? Maybe it is a textbook in some other class…;0)
  3. Reading and translating chapter 8. Today, I used a slightly different technique. I asked questions about the text. These were not just comprehension questions, but questions designed to help students become more familiar with English by hearing many repetitions of the same words and phrases. What did you think of this? Send me an email or leave a comment here on the blog.
  4. Answering the study guide questions for chapters 8-9.
  5. Homework:

    Finish reading and translating chapters 8 and 9.
