Doesn't time fly ...
DISCUSSION - CELEBRATIONS
It's the end of the year ... time to relax ... and (after some rest)... to think about the new year to come.
I know you love Bean ... study the song, Auld Lang Syne, they sing in the video.
When do we traditionally sing Auld Lang Syne?
Why do we sing that song?
Do you celebrate New Year? If so, what do you do?
KARAOKE - Auld Lang Syne Let's have a sing along ...
LISTENING - MAKING RESOLUTIONS
A "Resolution" is a promise to change your life in some way. On New Year's Eve many people make a resolution. Here are my resolutions for the coming year ...
Dale o0(I'm going to cut down on eating sweets)
Dale o0(I'm going to read a short story in Spanish every week)
Dale o0(I'm going to keep on going to the gym and riding my bike to work everyday)
ADVICE: Do not make too many resolutions. You might not be able to keep them!
SPEAKING MY NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS ... LIFE & STUDY
Make two resolutions ... 1) about your life 2) about studying English.
Use the vocabulary and phrases we used in class:
*cut down on
*I promise to ...
*I am going to ...
*I will ...
PHONE CAST YOUR RESOLUTIONS ...
Please phone your resolutions on to our class Phlog at ipadio.com (use the Mobile English learning sheet with 1800 number, codes and pin from your book!!!)
