September 27 Lesson homework

Dear students,Today you talked about your English learning experiences. Please write a multi-paragraph essay based on those experiences. I will look at them next lesson. Also, please keep your essay and hand it in on the last day of the semester. These homework assignments will allow me to assess your participation score. Kind regards, Chris Elvin PS. Please also remember to choose a topic within language to research, and bring your web pages and materials to class so that you can prepare a presentation.
