On Friday, 11 October Una and Nurjan’s Elementary class went on a joint outing. Students were able to practice new vocabulary they studied earlier about various shops and what can be bought there. They also had the opportunity to order food from a menu.
One of the tasks they had to complete was writing the name of the store, what was sold there and the price of various items. They had to practice asking staff, “What is this?” and “How much is this?”
Some answers read:
Tawfiq : ‘sling shot R50’.
Ahmed : t-short R 80
Eduardo : wooden elephant R35
The next task was to write down the name of the shop next to the restaurant as well as 5 things one could do or buy there.
Marta : ‘Lite Kem Pharmacy blood sugar testing, cholesterol testing,vitality screen testing, cosmetics, baby care’
