Listening, pg. 48 (Task One & Two)
Speaking (in pairs) and making a decision, pg. 49. Students had to discuss the question of how different amenities can make our lives in cities easier and then decide which two they would choose as more important. We also checked various ways of agreeing and disagreeing politely.
Writing a film review, pg. 50-52: plan, evaluation (how to praise and criticize), useful vocabulary
'The Social Dilemma": we watched the Netflix docudrama (up to 25'). Students discussed the negative impact of social media and how technology companies try to manipulate human psychology by monitoring us constantly and tapping into our personality with various 'magic' tricks. We also talked about their common practice of monetisation.
