Activites in English

Skapad 2019-09-17 13:01 i Sth hotell och restaurangskola Stockholm Gymnasieskolor
Grundskola F – 9 Engelska
Here is a looong list of activites you can attempt when you are finished with the assignment we are working with. Our English course is divided up into four areas: Reading comprehension (läsförståelse), listening comprehension (hörförståelse), writing (skriftig produktion), and speaking (muntlig produktion). Choose activities which train each of these different areas. Ask me if you are unsure which area you want to train! Make sure that if you do one of the assignments, you turn in something here, so that I have a record of what you have done!
