I explained to them my trip to Sydney, Australia, that we did  last year. My daughter, my son and I went there by train. We enjoyed this trip a lot. Also, we met a very famous author of the bestseller “Climbing the mountains. Higher and higher again”. He gave us a small talk about the walk to the mountains he described in the book. The author called Mr.Smith traveled with his monkey called   Mickey. Sydney was great, we were there for a month until we ran out of money.


Instrucciones para el feedback

Para dar el feedback a nuestros compañeros usaremos la formula M.I.S.T.E.R. FEEDBACK

Y es porque permite dar un feedback de GRAN ayuda

Maintain= you did it well

 (fluency, energy, word order, vocabulary, sentence structure) 

Include= you didn’t do it

 (connectors, phrasal verbs, prepositions, proper pronunciation of plurals, +s for third person singular, +ed correct pronunciation)

Start improving = you can do it  better:

Train techniques

(shadowing, gapping, three filters, lazy listening) 

Expand vocabulary

(synonyms, “secondary” vocabulary, #q1—>quizlet 1… )

Remove = do not do it

 (robot effect, direct translation, fast/slow speaking, “eeehh” sound)
