I recently got emails from some of you that you had clicked on “Follow this Blog” and entered your email address but haven’t been getting notifications of new postings.
I asked WordPress about this, and they said that they always send a verification email to everyone who signs up to follow the blog, and these recipients need to click reply to the email to confirm this. Sometimes the verification email goes to Spam, so they recommended that I mention this to followers: please check you Spam.
Thank you all who have contacted me.
(This posting includes a handout which you are welcome to use with your students.)
Students are going to make the most progress in their conversation skills if they get into the habit of doing two things:
(1) Listen carefully to what the other person is saying and
(2) Respond to what was said.
This information-gap activity is great practice for a couple of reasons. First, students will immediately know if they hadn’t understood clearly what their partner had said. And second, it provides an example of how to respond to what the partner had said.
There are three exercises in this activity.
