G11_French_What did we do last week? What will we do next?

Hi all,

We successfully ended the our second unit on Apparence et Caractere last week. We learnt how to describe our friend, family… We also played guess who/20 questions which reinforced our pronunciation skills. We listened to the audios of (those who submitted their homework) as a listening component for the unit. I encourage those who have not completed their HW to do so, so that we could discuss their recordings on Monday, 18 August.

By mutual consensus, we chose to have a unit test since we have completed it. Let’s then check our understanding of the unit on Tuesday, 19 August 2014. We could discuss all your doubts, clarifications regarding the unit on Monday.

Bonne chance!

Cordialement,
