Today in class we talked about lifestyles and things that usually happen at specific ages. We took a quiz about facts from other countries, and compared the answers to our lives in Prague. We also practiced using comparatives and the superlatives to describe and compare things. We challenged ourselves to come up with creative sentences using a given comparative or superlative as quickly as possible. Finally, we practiced using the forms "#1 is/isn't as ______ as #2" and "#1 is ______ than #2".

Homework: pg 22, #5- form complete sentences comparing two things using the appropriate adjective. Then write five of your own sentences, using any adjectives you want.


Today in class we discussed fashion and style from different decades. On page 15 of our new textbooks, we read an article about how clothing, music and culture has changed from the 1950's to now. We described each decade using some new vocabulary, in the past simple verb tense. We did some exercises on page 16 to practice using the past simple correctly: positive and negative sentences, and forming questions. Finally, we changed adjectives into adverbs (+ly, +ily, or irregular) and used them to modify sentences.

For homework, we are to read the three short stories about different places, on page 19, and think about how they are similar or different to our lives in the Czech Republic.


Today we talked about how to describe people using personality adjectives, and learned some new words like "confident" and "shy" and "forgetful". The group designed their portfolios and wrote their first entry, describing some things about themselves and what they like. Then we played a game where the students had to describe famous people and characters, and the other student had to guess the person. Finally, we did an activity with present simple and present continuous, describing information about ourselves and things we are doing at the moment.

The homework this week is to write five facts about themselves (present simple), and five sentences describing what the student is doing at the moment (present continuous).



Today we discussed things we like/hate/love doing (like/hate/love + verb + ing). We reviewed the verbs swim, ride, draw, dance, sing, travel, and learned a new verb 'to garden'. The students talked about their hobbies and the things they especially like doing, then they created their own after-school club based on that hobby (activity) and gave a presenatation. 

There is no homework this week. Next week the students should get their new textbooks and start using them.
