9/19 -- After the website stopped working, I created a new website for the class.  You can find it here.  From now on, I will post all documents on this website.  You need to register in order to access the class documents:  http://z13.invisionfree.com/English_Conversation/

 

9/18 -- For class tomorrow, you just need to bring the documents from last class.

Classroom Policies:

  • If you have 12 unexcused absences, you will automatically fail the class.

  • This is an English conversation class.  You will lose participation points for excessively speaking Korean.  If you are finished with an in-class assignment you may converse with your classmates about any topic you wish, but please do so in English.
