Yes!!! The second term is about to begin and I intend to make the most of it. By now, besides having learnt your names (not an esay task for me!) I also know some things about each of you and I believe this knowledge will make it easier for me to find better ways to help you improve your mastery of the English language. But before we start this semester, I would like you to take a few minutes and write your thoughts about Language and EDI: how you feel you're doing so far, do you think you are making progress?, what your expectations are (I already know you expect to pass the midterm exam!!! and so do I), any aspects that could be improved or added. Your ideas will be very helpfull to me. I've also been talking to Brian about his work in class. Besides teaching some classes and helping us with vocabulary and pronunciation, I think it would be good for you to have personal meetings with him, on a one-to-one basis, so that after listening to you speak/read, he can give you some advice as to what you should improve. What do you think? He is also planning to carry out a project and you will probably take part in it.
I'm looking forward to reading your contributions. They will certainly make of our class a better environment to learn. Thanks and don't take too long!
