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 take English class on-line through an English studying App. I need to study English by myself through this App at least 5 days a week. At the same time, I take live streaming class through social media App for some explanation of my questions from my on-line teacher, also my teacher teaches us some English grammar and pronunciation in this live streaming class.

I had an English class, it was around 2015, teachers from British Council, which was arranged by our Ministry. I studied A2 Level, after 9 months,I had got B2 as Aptis Test Result. I was very happy and it was grate for me. After one year later, I didn't do anything to improve my English skills. I am now retrying hardly to improve my English. It is important for my life, my job and my opportunity.Now, I am also trying to get a scholarship from JISPA. I need to try more and more.
