I have decided to extend the hand-in deadline for Competence 1 – The Company Tour from Friday 8th to Monday 11th November at 11pm.
Due to the student strike (la huelga), plus two national holidays, there have been 3 lessons (4hours) missed. It is obvious to me after the first workshop (Wed 29th), that lots of people still need much more preparation for the evaluation.
Next Wednesday’s class (6th November) will be a workshop (not a normal lesson) where I can help anyone with any aspect of their preparation (e.g. correcting sentences, helping with ideas).
After that workshop, there are 5 more days (Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon) to complete the video and transcription.
GUIDE / PLAN
I strongly suggest that you follow this guide when planning and recording your tour.
1. WELCOME – introducing to each other, take your coat, coffee etc
2. SMALL TALK – trip, flight, hotel, weather
3. TOUR – a little bit about the company – other person asks questions. Little bit about the other company – other person asks questions
4. SMALL TALK – activities in the town/city – restaurant, recommendations etc
Remember that you can NOT read from a script while you are recording. The competence is to ‘be able to welcome and introduce a visitor to your company’ – this is an oral activity. Reading from a script does not demonstrate that you have this competence. You can use notes to help you remember what to say, if you need them.
‘Not using a script’ was already clearly stated in the blog which gave the details of this evaluation.
