The Chant:

I’m a frog.

I’m a cat.

Can you tell me

what you are?

ΑΠΑΝΤΗΣΗ: Πολλή καλή ιδέα και, τώρα το καλοκαίρι, όταν ξεκουραζόμαστε λίγο, είναι μια καλή περίοδος για λίγο στοχασμό και για ασκήσεις αυτογνωσίας. Η άσκηση που προτείνουμε, μας βοηθάει να κάνουμε μια ενδοσκόπηση και αυτο-αξιολόγηση για προσωπική και επαγγελματική ενδυνάμωση.

We have borrowed this term from business and home construction and we use it metaphorically to illustrate the steps a FL school Owner/Director needs to take before the beginning of the new school year so that in late August-September his/her school will be in ready-to-operate condition.

QUESTION:  My exam prep students are reluctant to participate in class discussions.  Also, writing B2 – C2 level compositions is extremely challenging for most of them.  I know that they are familiar with appropriate vocabulary items on specific exam topics, but when they are asked to express themselves they find it difficult to recall the right words and expressions.

Answer: That's fine. Most of us decide that we'd like to use an activity, other than the ones in our Christmas repertoire, just about the last week before the holidays.  And we've got just the one.

ANSWER: The First Day of Class is the most important day of the school year. We would like to suggest an activity which would help B1+ learners to tell you a bit about themselves and to express their expectations of you, of themselves, their fellow learners, as well as their dreams for the future.

We strongly recommend that you use it as a poetry writing activity, as it is much more motivating.
