Once you did the exam , which was rather short and easy, we had time to deal with sayings related to money (page 28, number 1) and money expressions on page 29, lexis number 1. We also did the oral activitity , and a listening and speaking activity where three people ,Patti, Eric and Lee, were interviewed about money matters.

For tomorrow three of you will make a speech and exercises from your workbook (page 14 ,numbers 1,2,3 and 4) and grammar (pages 62 and 64, exercises 8,9,10 and 11). We´ll check some of them and you´ll tell me your doubts about the others. The following activity will be a listening split in two parts : you´ll retell the story both orally and in written form. You should be able to tell a story with the suitable time connectors.

You can see the real Crown-of-thorns starfish , a serial coral killer. Its diameter can be up to 40 cm across and it can have form 12 to 19 arms. Don´t touch them ! Swelling and pain for sure. The one I edited yesterday , a granular starfish, Choriaster granulosus,isn´t as dangerous as this one and it doesn´t look as aggressive either.
