Dear all,

  • Do your WB vocabulary from unit 3 (pp 18 and 19, I think). Don’t forget to learn words from our class session.
  • Get ready with your presentations based on Ted.com or any reading in English. Here’s your presentation vocab handout
  • Keep reading your books and listening to the audiobooks I gave you!

Plus, start working on The Simpsons Project (see below)

  1. Do you know the Simpsons family? Please watch one episode in English  (wtso.net  no subtitles, sorry). Feel free to choose any but «Treehouse of Horror» series are short and relatively easy to understand  (for example, this one).
  2. Now, I am sure you’ll be interested to learn about the actors who work on The Simpsons. All of them gathered in a TV show Inside the Actor’s Studio and answered questions about the famous series and their careers.Take notes!
  3. Prepare a short talk on a series character based on what you have seen.
