Some practice before our lessons begin

Here you have an activity to practise speaking and pronounciation. Watch the video and follow the three steps, focusing on imitating  pronounciation.


Now record yourself -on your mobile phone, for example- speaking about the following (about 2 minutes):

"A time when a friend asked you for advice: when it was, who your friend was, what happened to him/her and what your advice was..."

Save the recording and send it to me.
