3rd British: Exam 7th February

Dear students,

I listened to your request about changing the exam.

BUT

when a teacher makes you such a big favour, your attitude must CHANGE. I´m going to be much more demanding:


      • Improve your ATTITUDE: you are BRITISH STUDENTS.
      • Speak always in ENGLISH
      • Pay attention in class WITHOUT talking-
      • Focus on the subject-
      • Hand in your tasks ON TIME-
      • Do your homework every day you are requested-
      • Show interest in class and be volonteers.
      • And much more...

Tomorrow will study the point about DISTRIBUTION OF THE POPULATION
