C.A. 1 INFORMATION

Posted in General by 0000951 |

Hi Everyone,

 

Here is the information about the C.A. 1 tests information:

NOV. 23Oral test.  You will do this with a partner.  There is NOTHING for you to prepare.  I will bring the necessary material.  You and your partner will have 1-2 short conversations on topics which we have seen in the textbook.  Total time will be 7-9 minutes.  When you are not doing this test, you will be in the Aula d´Informática working on individual language needs.

 

NOV. 24:  Grammar/Vocabulary/Reading/Listening tests.  I will bring in these tests, which will probably last most of the class, perhaps 1.5 hours.  Review what we have done in class and in the book.

 

NOV. 25 & 26:  TUTORIALS!

 

Thanks,

 

Chuck

2015-16 TED VIDEO TALK (FLIGHT OR TRAVEL)

Posted in General by 0000951 |

Hi Everyone,

 

I want all of you to watch a video from TED.COM from one of the following two categories:  FLIGHT or TRAVEL.  WATCH ANY VIDEO YOU WISH!  You may watch it as many times as you wish, but the first two times you cannot use subtitles!!  After the second viewing, if you wish to use subtitles, YOU MAY ONLY USE ENGLISH SUBTITLES!

Go to TED.com, then go to Discover–Topics and then find one of the two categories.

What to do:  Watch the video as often as you wish, taking notes on key points the speaker makes.  Then, write a paper explaining what was said (around 150 words) and then give your opinion about what was said (another 150-175 words).  Try to use some of the vocabulary from our textbook and some from the talk.

 

You will give me this paper on NOV. 9TH!

 

Thanks.

2015-2016 FINAL EXAM INFORMATION

Posted in General by 0000951 |

Hi Everyone,

 

Here is some of the final exam info, which you must remember!  For most of you this is a reminder, but a couple of you came after the first week of classes and may not know this.

1.  The final exam is 100% PASS-FAIL.

2.  The exam is based on levels, not 0-10.  Thus, to pass level 4, a student must get an average of the 4 skills areas (Speaking, Writing, L/C, Grammar-Vo-Reading) of approximately 4.0.

3.  To have the possibility of passing the exam, ALL students must get at least a 4.0 on ONE OF THE TWO ACTIVE SKILLS:  SPEAKING or WRITING.  If both scores are below 4.0, the student automatically fails.

4.  If a student gets a score of -0.5, in other words below a 3.50, in either of the two active skills areas, the student automatically fails.

If anyone has any questions, please come by and speak with me.  Thanks.
