Hello XXXX,

I hope you are doing well today, thank you for coming, I have attached the slides we worked on so you can look at them when you get a chance to.

For some extra practice, here are some things you can try:

First, a video with a quiz I’d like you to try: https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/skills/speaking/b1-speaking/responding-news

Next, for a writing activity, I’d like you to pick one moment from your life, when you either received good or bad news, and using some or all of the vocabulary, write a small paragraph explaining what it was, and how you reacted to it.  How has it affected your life?

I also found this interesting short article about a phenomenon called ‘greenwashing’ which seems like bad news to me! What do you think?

From Whitewash to Greenwash

Finally, I’d like you to have a look at this sheet about giving bad news and write down those which you are unsure about, we will talk about it next class. OPTIONAL: if you are feeling brave, you can try to use as many as you can in a sentence!


Let me know if you have any questions, have a great day!
