July 27 2016 Blog Discussion


Hello! Here is the topic for this week. Enjoy!

What would you do if you found a wallet on the ground? Would you return it? 
What if it had the owner's identification in it? 
What if the wallet had $10,000 in it? Now, what if your family member needs the money for his/her medical treatment. 
What do you think is the right thing to do? Would you even be tempted to take the wallet?
What do people usually do in your home country when they find something that does not belong to them? How is that different from other countries you have visited? 
Lastly, do people in your home country respect others' belongings?

April 20 2016 Blog Discussion

Please think about the questions below and be ready to have a discussion. Remember, the more pre-thinking you do, the better you can practice your language skills.

If you could go back in time and speak to your younger self, what advice would you give?


eg. something you should not do, something you should do, someone you should/shouldn't meet, somewhere you should/shouldn't go, something you should/shouldn't buy, etc. Make sure to think of more than just these examples.
