1. Classmates and questions

descarga

Last Monday, September the 14th was or first English session together.  How much did you learn about your new classmates?

Asking questions is a good way to find out. Asking questions in English might be tougher. Read more and check if you actually remember what your classmates told you. We talked about age, family, jobs…

Are you interested in finding out more? Think of more questions.images

Rudyard Kipling, the writer of “The book of the jungle”, wrote a short poem about asking questions. This is the poem:

I keep six honest serving men
(They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.

From it , we learn that if you want to know something, the best is to ask questions. The more questions you ask, the more information you get.

We also need to listen actively … but that is another story
