April 30th lesson

Dear students,
Our four topics for this semester will be communication, environment, social issues, and education.
Today, you will elaborate on last week's topic of your hometown by giving specific details about your three hometown subtopics. These details will make up the body of your speech.
You will also prepare for your communication speeches, so please try to think of a narrow topic within the communication field to do some reasearch and planning. Your speech should include some opinions of the experts and also of your own. At the very least you should have some idea on what your communication topic will be.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
