Using this worksheet

 

 

Tuesday June 23 practice part 2 picture description

 

Students have only an hour today to find crash pictures on Google and record descriptions using the worksheet from yesterday but as few are doing this, and as the speaking assessments have been brought forward to tomorrow, we need to cram in as much as possible so that you can study while others are taking their tests Wed and Thu this week.

 

This kind of test derives from http://www.tea-test.com/

Describing pictures in ICAO Aviation English tests 

 

From this area in Bb Learn: speaking / guided practice

https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/webapps/blackboard/content/listContentEditable.jsp?content_id=_3602405_1&course_id=_51610_1

 

 

See the picture on p.8 of the test above and complete this worksheet: Picture cloze

 

Here are some model pictures and things to say, from Bob Studholme

 

And here are two cloze activities from similar pictures and models

 

Finally, you can

Use this newsfeed of a crash in Bali from which  we have taken photos in the past

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ7rfc1sQE8

Click on the transcript option in the video to see how the voice is synchronized with the transcript (with some errors, see if you can find them). 

 

The best kind of preparation is to record yourself practicing, listen to your recording, and self-correct

Writing explanation

 

 

Students should REVISE their Google Docs by making sure their Complaint #2 letters have all the elements in the checklists above.

Vance will check for revisions Tuesday.

 

Here is a sample letter that was composed on student suggestions from another class

 

Dear Sir / Madam,

My name is Dot Dotdot, and I work for British Airways as a steward. I have 7 years experience and I have flown on over 1000 flights already.  However, working conditions have become worse since I began with BA. I am writing now to tell you about the problems we are having, and then I want to make some suggestions for improvement.

First I want to tell you about the problems with working conditions. We work for very long hours without break and without enough cabin crew to help us in this work. Also we are working these long hours at low salaries and without benefits that other airlines give their employees. Because our work makes us tired, the passengers do not respect us and are angry with us all the time. At the end of the flight, we have to stay in poor quality hotels, which means we are not rested when we have to fly again.

I have some suggestions that will help us to improve the situation. I think you should hire more workers to help us do our jobs properly on the flights and increase the salary and benefits. For example, you should give your employees free tickets and improve the quality of hotels we stay in at our destinations.

I like my job, so I hope you will help us solve the problems that we are having by taking steps to improve our working conditions. Thanks for taking the time to read this letter.

Sincerely,
