BACK TO SCHOOL ON THE 7.20

The train arrived (in/ on/ at/ to/ ) Charing Cross Station late, by about ten minutes.
Or, as they would say in the last carriage, dix minutes. It was the 7.20 from Tunbridge Wells, where (in/ on/ at/ every/) Tuesdays and Thursdays,
a group of commuters gets together (to learn/ for to learn/ for learning/ for learn/) French.
(There/ They´re/ It´s/ Their/) teacher is Mrs. Marie Stoppard.
She heard about the commuter study groups set up by Learn and Ride, and offered to help. She is French, and works (for/ by/ in/ with/) Dupont, the international company,
and has been running courses in French (from/ since/ for/ in/) 1984.
The first member of the group to get on the train is Colin Dearlove, (who/ that/ whom/ which/) lives in Tunbridge Wells.

He puts a sticker on the window and cards on the table in the last carriage, asking other commuters to leave the seats free for the study group.

People (is/ does/ do/ are) usually very understanding”, he said.
Colin has studied (other/ another/ others/ a lot/) subjects on the train- German, history of art, and geology.
He has been learning French (in the class of Mrs. Stoppard/ in Mrs. Stoppards’ class/ in the Mrs. Stoppard’s class/ in Mrs Stoppard’s class/) for a year.
So (is/ has/ does/ has been/) Alice Lester, who works in the City.
She has a chance to try out what she has learnt, (as/ although/ while/ and/) she has relatives in France.
She normally catches (more early train/ an earliest train/ an earlier train/ a most early train/) but twice a week goes in later to join the class.
Another member of the group, Bill Cunningham, (has/ is/ can/ does/) the same.
“I like to use my time creatively”, he said, “If I didn’t do this, I (am/ would be/ will be/ was/) bored.”
Elsewhere on the train another group had been learning bridge, and on Wednesdays (is/ there is/ it is/ takes place) a world affairs class.

These have been set up by Mrs. Angela Ridley on Learn and Ride, with the approval of British Rail.

“Naturally I asked their permission, and they (said/ told/ spoke/ talked/) they didn’t mind at all“.
She hands out questionnaires asking (what are people interested in/ in what are people interested/ what people are interested) and who might be prepared to offer their services as a teacher, and forms groups on the basis of the replies.
She is hoping to have a class on business management. “If enough people (ask/ asked/ were asking/ has asked/) for it,
the class (starts/ would start/ will start/ would have started/) on the 7.33 next month.”

3. Test oral online

¿Qué nivel piensa que tiene según su experiencia de aprendizaje con el idioma elegido?
Le proponemos que siga estos breves pasos y consejos para realizar el test oral online:

- elegir solo uno de los tres niveles (Elemental, Pre-Intermedio o Intermedio) , es decir, el que crea que pueda resolver según su nivel de idioma;
- grabar un archivo de audio respondiendo en grupo cada una de las consignas del nivel elegido, según están presentadas y no en forma individual. Es fundamental decirlas en forma espontánea: no prepare las respuestas antes de grabarlas.

La grabación del audio es muy sencilla, simplemente hay que:

1) Verificar el correcto funcionamiento del micrófono (incorporado o externo) de su equipo.

2) Ingresar al sitio Clyp.it

3) 1) Hacer clic en Sign up para crear una cuenta si no posee una (este paso es fundamental porque de lo contrario el audio grabado solo permanece vigente unas pocas horas y luego se borra)

4) Presionar el botón de color anaranjado que se encuentra en el centro de la página y dice Start recording.

5) Presionar nuevamente el botón que se transformó en un cuadrado del mismo color para finalizar

6) Seleccionar en el mismo lugar la opción Share your clyp

7) Esperar que la carga termine de procesar, situación que se indica a través de una barra que va mostrando el progreso de la carga y señala cuando este finaliza generando automáticamente el archivo: My clyp.

8) Renombrar el archivo generado que automáticamente aparece como My clyp, titulándolo con su nombre completo: apellido y nombre/s (en ese orden).
