B1 CLASS 10/10 HOMEWORK

Dear parents and kids,

Please send me a photo of today´s dictation by mail.

As for the online classes on Microsoft Teams, I want to thank the kids for their patience and cooperation today. However, since we will definitely need to resort to Teams to do some of our classes this year, I´d like to draw your attention to some issues:

1. If we want to have the best lesson possible and a good outcome for all,  we need to resolve all technical, connectivity, microphone and camera issues. The best experience for a student is through a PC - not a tablet or a mobile phone. The camera and microphone MUST BE ON at all times, unless I say otherwise.

2. The kids need to be on the ball, follow the lesson and give swift answers to questions. The faster the pace of the lesson, the more opportunities for playing, video watching and other enjoyful activities there will be.

If you have any questions, please send me an email at gkaranastasis@isa.edu.gr.
