Conversation Club Preparation

For April 20, 2005

Gela: You will contemplate and respond to these questions in the form of a five paragraph essay. I will not tell you what that is, but let you investigate the format. Here are some questions that you can use for ideas if you wish.

  • How important are first impressions? Please explain. What do you look for in friends and why?
  • What do people see when they first hear where you live or lived?
  • What stereotypes do people have of your country?

Mariano: You get to watch the videos and read the articles about Cultural Dimensions….and please send me your corrected version of the First Impressions essay.

For both of you:

After you have viewed all the videos and read all the articles, you might be thinking that culture clearly affects how you write in English. Explain how. Send a written message as a comment to this page so your voice can be heard.
