LC PREP COURSE, SPRING 2015, CLASS 6

In this class we finished off the exercise on the Falsos Amigos. Solution here.

We then went on to look at the Opinion piece. This is important as it is worth 50 marks in the exam.

There are two ways of approaching the question.
1. - Pick one side of the argument, give your opinion in the first paragraph (Estoy/no estoy de acuerdo con la afirmación)
- give three paragraphs with three different arguments for your position, beginning "primero", "segundo", "tercero".
- End with a short conclusion, reiterating your position ..... En conclusión...

2. Take both sides. Use the intro and conclusion given in the second example on p.30.
- have two paragraphs in the middle, one for the afirmación, the other against. Introduce each one with "por un lado", and "por el otro lado" - on the one hand, on the other hand.

It is important to use a range of vocab, examples on p.32. Homework was to write one of the opinion pieces on p33.


We then went on to vocab connected with the environment, on p.34, and read the first 5 paragraphs of the text on p.35, while answering the questions.
