Teacher Notes

This answer key is deliberately kept concise since the idea of these Conversation Corners is to talk rather informally and share information, not being given all the information by the teacher. BTW, the conversation should focus more on expressing opinions than giving correct answers.

Students could be given the opportunity to do some research on the Internet to find more information and answers to the questions.

Also, students could prepare questions they were unable to answer and give a short presentation during the next lesson.

Have a dictionary at hand (or an Internet connection) if possible so students can look up new vocabulary.

Switzerland (Susten Pass)

 

Focus on key vocabulary and encourage Ss to use full sentences.
