Flex 2 - HW


Hi Everyone,
I have attached 2 more units so, as I told you in class, you have now a choice of 5 units to study, individually or with a 'buddy'. Practice the dialogs and the exercises and prepare at least 1 of the 'tranfer' or 'role play' at the bottom of each unit to discuss together in class.
Make your appointments for your 'Buddy' sessions by email and CC me in.
Send me copies of emails that you have from work to discuss.
Start thinking about a 'negotiation' situation connected with work for a class simulation later.
Have a great day Click Me!

Class exercise for tomorrow:
Please Read the following exercise carefully in your buddy groups. In class discuss the email and choose your answer from the 3 options A, B, C.
You will have 10 minutes to discuss and draft the email reply. Then we will talk about it together in class for you to justify your answer.
 
Company Car. You receive this email from R. Patel...
 
Subject: Delivery of new company car
 
I've completed final negotiations with the garage supplying your new company car. They'll have it ready for collection between 3 and 5 PM on Thursday 21 October, so I would be grateful if you could arrange for it to be collected at that time. They have agreed to include the sunroof, remote alarm and the CD player at the price we originally agreed. I've also arranged for your old car to be collected from the car park at Head Office on the afternoon of the same day. Please let me know immediately of any faults that you notice. When we're paying this amount of money for a car it should be perfect!
 
What do you do?

A - Collect the car yourself
B - Arrange to collect the car another day
C - Arrange for someone else to collect the car
 
Good morning everyone,
Things to do:
1) HW - 2 units attached to practice and prepare before next lesson.
2) Find a friend from the group to practice with and register it on the page:
http://flextronicsisrael.blogspot.co.il/?zx=5d3653183decd139.  If you can't access the site then send me your gmail and I will allow you access.
 - it can be a simple 10 minute conversation, chat about work or doing the HW units together.
3) Prepare to speak in the lesson next week - personal introduction and work related discussion.
The ONLY way to improve your English is to use it and practice, practice, practice.
