B2.1 University employees (19.04.18)

We started today by checking home assignments (SB p. 46) and practised the use of future structures in SB p. 47 ex. 3 and WB p. 31 ex. 1. We had a lovely discussion about living in the future and past and forgetting the present. That led us to a listening task about a 15-century castle, which, in turn, triggered a discussion about uniforms and how they affect people. Moreover, we had a language structure task about going to the cinema (http://www.tlu.ee/~kivihall/B2.1 (19.04.18).pdf) HW: WB p. 31 ex. 2; p. 32 ex. 3 and 4. PS.
