12th lesson on 26th May 2020
Hello dear lover of the English language,
Yesterday we met the first time after a very long break because of Corona. And so we had to talk about a lot. Unfortunately, we didn‘t talk only in English, because our English knowledge was a little bit rusty.
So we talked about the situation at schools, where two of us work, and how we survived the long time of lockdown. By the way we had to sit in a distance of 1.50m and had to use a mouth-nose -protection outside the classroom.
Oh, I almost forgot, yesterday a young man called Jan joined our course. He is a student here in Schmalkalden and he also wants to improve his English.
There isn‘t any homework for the next time.
I‘m looking forward to next Tuesday.
Have a great time and stay healthy.
11th lesson on 10th March 2020
Hello my dear students. We haven’t seen each other for a long time. I hope you are well and you are healthy. I am glad that our lessons start again. One shouldn’t put off homework for long? I’m right After my notes, in our last lesson we talked about the current work situation. Then we read Elke’s entry in the logbook. We talked about comparisons of adjectives and adverbs (increases in petrol prices). Together we saw an entertaining film about Lost and Found. I wish you a good start. I hope I can be back soon.

Next we worked in our book on pages 22, 23 and 24. We listened to the owner of the vase at the „Family Antiques Event“ and we read and translated an old letter.
After that each of us talked about a personal special object. Next we worked with a partner. We had to discribe a lost item. On page 25 „Language and culture“ we read and translated step 2 and step 3. We listened to two people talking about one of the topics in this page.

Hello all together,
