Hi GADE 1,
As you should know by now, you have to include at least 1 graph in your group video for Evaluation 2: Presentation about a company or country.
Here is your homework, which will help you get better at describing graphs.

CLASS MINI PRESENTATIONS
Now that we are back into normal lessons (not workshops), we will return to having mini 4-5min individual presentations. You must complete one of these before the end of the year if you want a good mark for your 10% for “attitude in class & towards learning”.
The next people on the list are…
CLASS RULES REMINDER
Also, because we have finished with the workshops now, the CLASS RULES are in effect.
I do not want to have to ban someone from lessons and report that to Joseba. But if your behaviour impedes my teaching or other people’s learning, I WILL throw you out!
So, if you choose to attend class, please follow the class rules at all times.
