Welcome to English 7. This is the last and final course in English in secondary school. The level in this course is fairly advanced.
The course plan can be found here. The course focusses on furthering your command of English. We will read literature, research and discuss various subjects and themes. We will look in particular at questions that are commonly encountered if you study English at the university.
Today, we will briefly talk about:
- Who I am and what I have done
- Who you are and what you have done
- What we all can do to make the most of this course
Today we will resolve two tasks.
Task 1: Warm-up, What does your name mean?
Using a dictionary, google or any other resource, you are going to find and write down an appropriate adjective that begins with each letter of their first name. For example:
Fantastic, Relaxed, Extrovert, Dedicated
Task 2: Expectations, fears, resources
In pairs. Discuss your expectations, fears and resources, i.e. how you can contribute to the course.
Task 3: ”Dear Mr Wernegren”
Write me a letter about why you chose English 7, what you think are your strengths in English, and possibly something about your hopes for the course – or, how you can contribute to make this course rewarding.
You can also touch on questions like:
When and how did you learn English? What have you done to improve your English? How do you use the language in your everyday? What does your future in English look like? How do you hope to use the language? What do you hope to be able to do?
