Transcript

Hello, everyone. Hello! It's nice to see you all here. Welcome to British Life and Language. I am your teacher. My name is Lindsay Black. That's L-I-N-D-S-A-Y Black. Before we begin, some information about the class.

Our class is in room 13, on the first floor. When you go upstairs, turn left to find the room. Again, that's room 13.

We have class twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday. Our class begins at 4.30 p.m. and lasts 90 minutes, so we finish at 6 p.m. That's 4.30 to 6. Please arrive on time, OK?

Also, I have an office hour if you have questions. I'm in office 7B on the second floor. My office hour is Friday at 6 p.m. So, if you have any questions or problems or want to talk to me, it's Friday at 6 p.m. in office 7B.

We begin next week, on March the 13th. That's Monday, March the 13th. The course ends on May the 20th. May the 20th is the last day.

I think that's all ... Oh, one more thing. For this course you need the book. Here it is: British Life and Language Level 1 Student's Book. So, please get a copy of the book. I don't want to see any photocopies of the book, thank you! Remember, it's level 1 student's book. Don't buy the teacher's book.

I think that's all, everyone. I look forward to working with you. See you next Monday!

I had an English Class at previous last one year in Tamwe Township . This class taught once a week on Sunday , two hours in a days . I don't remember the class time exactly . Now, I am studying online English Lessons from Websites . I can't go anywhere because of Covid-19 . Also the English classes don't open . It opens only online classes . So , I spent my time for online learning.

I have got different English classes in the home country, then later when I came to Europa also I took part in B1 and B2 levels of English. At the moment, I do independently exercises in English, I lead my lessons on different platforms. I hope it is useful and I see also that my English skills have been gradually increasing through a wide range of lessons.
