Intermediate. OP on Healthy Food

I’m excited to present a new segment (yes! Yet another! :D) which I’m creating because Mari Carmen, someone I worked with when she was in Básico 1 (Elementary) has sent in the script of a “monologue” she wrote for class, now that she is in “Intermedio” (B1). Thanks so much for this precious contribution! I’m sure it will help other B1 (Intermediate) students! Enjoy!

Useful Language. Everyday sentences with C1 language items (socializing)

No transcript. I’m protesting students’ obsession with reading and not training their ears to learn to understand. (It’s like a culturally patriarchal obsession with doing things the hardest and least enjoyable way, to make sure one fails, or has a hell of a time). So if you want a transcript, you can take it down as a dictation and then post here. I’ll check it! 😀 <3
