JUNE 17 Activities

β˜•οΈ A little bit fancy… πŸ°

Recently, our Intermediate classes have been learning all about ‘Indirect Questions’ such as “Could you pass me the tea?” or “Would you be able to cut me a slice of cake?”.Β Today in the student kitchen, they practiced using this very polite style of speech at the Lexis Tea Party, where even the Queen herself made an appearance. What a great idea! πŸ™‚

Scott has been a lifesaver for many years, and has a lot of experience dealing with issues faced at the beach – particularly with tourists not knowing correct safety procedures. 😦 So it was great that he took the time today to help our students understand these important tips! Thanks for coming, Scott! πŸ™‚
