To be ready for Monday

Make sure that you complete your mini-castle research & are prepared to share with partners on Monday

    • Find an interesting castle in France
    • write down 5-10 interesting facts in English (including the location) … more detail is better than not enough things to talk about
    • save at least 5 screenshots to your phone to help your partner to visualize and understand the details you share

***The purpose is to practise sharing details & facts, to explain and describe, and to make comparisons with your partner’s castles. Make sure that you have the vocabulary needed to say what you want to say. Focus on unit vocabulary & structures (rather than looking up vocabulary that no one has learned yet). Accuracy with past/present tense is expected + some use of conditional.
