Tuesdays  12.30 – 14.00

To download this week’s homework go to the bottom of this text.




We usually start our time together talking about our (mainly) cultural experience in the previous week. We will also do some other warming-up activities.

Then we will talk about something you have read at home and what you have been thinking about. Some of you know each other, others are new. We will experiment with talking in a big group and talking in pairs or groups of three.

‘Talking’ means just that – but also looking at the words you need, nicer words for the ones you think of – and so on. You can tell me what you would likte to do – and see if other people agree with you!



Welcome to 2020!   We are reading an ‘easy’ version of Harriet Beecher-Stowe’s classic

Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Here is the lesson I’ve planned for Feb 18th B TL 18th Feb 2020

You need to click on the blue letters to get a pdf of the lesson. (It doesn’t include the listening this time.) It includes this sentence:

For homework read to p. 93 for 25th Feb

and the end for the beginning of March.

Mark important lines and statements! Or do you prefer making right/wrong?  Then do that!


I’m planning to move on to EAT, PRAY, LOVE  by Elizabeth Gilbert in the Oxford Bookworm series (level 4). Et so far I don’t have enough second hand for everybody.  However, I will buy them from you for 5 euros later.


 Do you have any wishes?  Let me know. Elizabeth Gilbert is not urgent. What other topics or technqieus are you interested in?
