5th semester final project- 2nd partial-

It sounds weird... but it's real... here you have your observation guide, where you have to create a small dialogue with all the topics that you were investigating...it's in teams (3 to 5 integrants) your dialogue has to have all the topics at least one sentence of each one, it has to be funny, short and creative, it doesn't matter the situation, when we come back.... (I don't know when...) you have to present your  role-play, only with this I will evaluate you. Any doubt send me an email.

3rd semester final project 2nd partial.

Well, you have to write in a small paragraph all your plans for your future (follow your collage). It is individually. Only with this I will evaluate your 2nd partial, please send me to my email your paragraph. I will check it and remember to use present simple for future, present continuous for future, be going to and will, use superlatives, conditionals and would rather and would prefer, at least one sentence of each one.

IN YOUR NOTEBOOK  do a mind map with how causatives are formed, and how to use them. (only have /get verbs) in active & passive structure with 5 examples each verb. Then go to the following link:

http://www.eoioviedo.org/anacarmen/passive/causative%20verbs.pdf (where you can get more information) and solve the exercises in your own you can print them and paste on your notebook. Finally check your understanding (you have the answer key at the end) you have to tell me what was or were your mistakes and why... I hope to see you soon.
