Period 3 with Vance - speaking practice

 

Students were given two speaking practice close handouts to help them practice the language of describing pictures. These are available on Bb Learn from this link:

https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/webapps/blackboard/execute/content/file?cmd=view&mode=designer&content_id=_3808529_1&course_id=_59387_1

 

We did one of these in class and the other was left with the students to be done in self-study

 

Period 6 self-study

 

The instructions for today for Section 2 were handed out in hard copy at the beginning of the period

These refer to Ellen's document for Section 1 HERE

We went over the first ones in class. Students should practice these in pairs like this:

  1. One partner reads the first part of the exchange, being sure to say anything highlighted in yellow in aviation alphabet and numbers. 
    For example, if Partner 1 sees BXY 49, he says Bravo X-ray Yankee fower niner.
  2. Second partner says the call sign of the caller in the first exchange and then "say again" and name a part of the exchange he wants repeated. 
    For example, partner 2 might say,  
    "Bravo X-ray Yankee fower niner, say again heading."
  3. First partner says, Tower, I say again, and then repeats the information requested.
    For example, partner 1 can say, 
    "Tower, I say again, heading tree zero zero. Bravo X-ray Yankee fower niner."

 

Complete any of these exercises that you did not complete last period, from Bb Learn:

Period 4 with Vance - Writing a letter of complaint in Google Docs 

 

On your mid-term exam you will have to write a letter of complaint. Your teacher Ellen has taught the concept and modeled a letter for you.  In this lesson, you should use your model and write an original letter of complaint on a slightly different topic.

 

You may write your letter on paper or in Google Docs. If you write on paper your teacher will read it into Google Docs after you turn it in.

 

In order to learn from this, you will need to revise your work in Google Docs after your teacher Vance gives you feedback on it.

 

You can choose your topic

 

The first topic is the one in BlackBoard

https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/bbcswebdav/pid-3808409-dt-content-rid-5934911_1/courses/MGAEN201G47/Writing%201b%20-%20Letter%20of%20Complaint.pdf

 

You are a steward (cabin crew) on British Airways. You have started to feel very tired and unhappy because of the long work hours, lack of personnel on board and the quality of the hotels you have to stay at.

 

Alternative topic, you are a student

 

You are a student taking English classes from HCT. You have started to feel very tired and unhappy because of the long study hours, Sunday exams, lack of exam results, and the amount of material you are having to learn at too fast a pace.

 

Here is your task:

 

Write a letter to your superiors. In your letter

  • Introduce yourself
  • Explain the problems you have
  • Suggest what the airline or college should do

 

Write at least 150 words. You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter with ‘Dear Sir / Madam,’

 

You should spend 30 minutes on this task.

For unit 1 you still have to do side 'b' (back side)
