TV Series

Students in the Avanzado 2 courses have spent the last two months working on a project which entailed watching the same episode of a TV series several times, to gather some Useful Language. We’re starting this thread in case any of the students wishes to comment on the experience, and we will also post here the links to the Oral Presentations they prepared on this experience. Post freely and enjoy! 🙂
Here is where we are publishing their work: materials from the OP and links to videos of their work: Speaking & Listening – Students’ Contributions – Students’ Cornet, at the EOI Getafe website.
