This is our last week for this first part of our class: English Reading and Writing!
Please check your Moodle for some instructions to complete the class.
This week's challenges:
I would like you to think about (and laugh) and learn about mistakes and misprints.
Check this page and see if you get (understand and are able to correct) them. The pictures are not related to the body of the text so read the text and look carefully at the pictures.
If you like this kind of exercise to improve your spelling, go to our Moodle platform and chech the book I've put there. There is a great section on misprints.
1- Do you have any funny story about misprints and mistakes?
One time in a presentation when describing a picture of a big modern city, instead of saying CHAOS (/keios/) I pronounced the word like cows (/Kaus/), so you can imagine the big mess in my teacher's head when I said "I see "COWS" in the city!" COWS in the city? :D
2 - I want you to read an article which title is "THE WORST MISTAKE IN THE HISTORY OF THE HUMAN RACE" by Jared Diamond.
BEFORE reading the article I want you to guess the mistake the author refers to.
Which is "the biggest mistake in the history of human race" in your opinion?
Explain your choice and write an article explaining your perspective.
3- Then, read the actual article by Jared Diamond here and share your feelings and thoughts about it.
Do not forget to comment each other's posts.
Please check your Moodle to get the instructions for the "final project".
