Oral Presentation 2nd term

the year you were bornHello everybody,

The first week of March, you will need to do your oral presentation for the second term.

The topic will require a bit of research, but it may be interesting. The idea is for you to talk about the important things that happened the year of your birth, I´m sure lots of things happened that are worth sharing with your classmates. Choose the most interesting ones or the funniest ones, the ones that most get your attention…

As usual, you can focus on a few ideas and use visual aids if you like, you need to keep your presentation going for around 5 minutes.

Check the section on oral presentations for tips on how to structure your speech, and be careful with pronunciation and intonation.

What is Pancake Day?

Pancake Day, also called Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras (which is French for “Fat Tuesday”), is the last day of feasting before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. It’s called so due to the tradition of eating pancakes on the day. This tradition comes from a time where any rich foods were eaten on the day before Lent, and fasting begins. The date can vary from as early as February 3rd to as late as March 9th.
