Vocabulary is Important!
  • We will use four units a week in this textbook
    (two in class and two for homework).
  • If you miss a class, do the units yourself.
  • Combine the vocabulary you learn with the
    material from the TALK system and create new and
    useful language.

15
Vocabulary
  • It is important that you first learn basic
    vocabulary.
  • Learning all the words in your vocabulary
    textbook will bring you to about 2,000 words and
    phrases.
  • This is more than 80 of the vocabulary you need
    for English!
  • You will have a quiz from time to time to check
    your vocabulary level.

    vocabulary exam.

Using computers to communicate

  • Using the Internet is one way to do that.
  • You will have many chances to write in English.
  • You will have regular assignments.

moodle (a course management system)
  • We will use moodle for homework and in-class
    activities
  • Learning communities
  • Quizzes (to check vocabulary learning)
  • Other activities
  • These will count for your quizzes, in-class
    assignments and homework grade.

18
Presentations
  • After the learning community discussions, you
    will have much information to share with your
    classmates.
  • The Presentations (in English, of course) will
    give you an opportunity to share what you learned
    with the rest of the class (and me -) ).

    class and speak English)
