Hi there fellow English lovers! How is your weekend going so far?
I wanted to write about English classes at my school. Since we’re in a bilingual class, we use Success Intermediate books (for second grade students). Topics in the book are very amusing, so we enjoy spending our time having a wonderful discussion/debate. Unfortunately, we have to meet the school program, which is, as long as we (including our teacher) are concerned, not good at all. Namely, we think that, as bilingual students, we should have a different, more suitable program. Whatever the case, I doubt things will change… We are the only ones who can do something, with the help of our awesome professor. And we will. Mr. Goode (from Macmillan) gave our teacher some books after the presentation. We checked them out and unanimously agreed to use them in studying. We are going to start with Gateway B2+, just to warm up. I guess we’ll have finished the book by the beginning of second grade. Then we will buy Gateway C1 and so on up to the fourth grade. 😀
Right now we are revising the tenses. Teacher gave us some texts to practice. And here’s a “test” we did in class:
Last class we took a break from grammar and learned some new vocabulary.

Remember the ‘role changing day’ I mentioned a few weeks ago? We talked about men and women (the name of the lecture was “Why men are impossible?”). xD The class was great! We had so much fun. Jelena gave us those papers:
I want to congratulate her for organizing such an amazing class. She was definitely the best student-teacher that day.
Wait, I almost forgot! Do this diagnostic test and find out what is your English level. 🙂
