8A - NHL


You'll be glad to hear that homework for next week will be the text NHL. You'll find the words below. This time the test is verbal - you have to explain the words to each other and the others in your group have to guess which word you are talking about. Well, you've done this before - you know what it's all about.


7A, 7B - Write a letter about your school

During the last couple of weeks you've learnt something about schools in South Africa, Britain and USA. Now it's your turn to write a letter about schools in Sweden to an imaginary American student. Tell him/her about the following things:

(Start with an introduction of yourself. )

* levels
* schooldays - when do you start school and when does it finish?
* homework
* teachers
* dress codes
* lunch/breaks
* after school activities
* grades
* the best/worst thing about school
* other things you might think of...

You can hand in the letter during week 6. So - this is your homework for next week but you can write the letter during your English lessons.

Have a great week!
