Techify Teacher Chit-Chat Education

Clases de inglés negocios Sevilla

Here we are again, we’re back with our monthly Teachify Teacher chitchat, I’m sure you’ve been dying to watch another video after the last one, so we have delivered. 

You may notice that Mickey has had a makeover since our last chat and all of a sudden, he looks much better and sounds far better with an Australian accent. 

So what did we talk about today?

In Shannon’s first chitchat we discussed our main topic in June, that is Education. 

As part of the syllabus this month we’ve turned back time and tried to recall our memories from the good old days at primary and secondary school before focussing on university, on the job training, apprenticeships, language learning and more.

Keeping it short but sweet!

 

Consequently, Shannon and I tried to summarise some of the questions that arise when talking about education. 

Of course, you should be aware that we barely even scratched the surface of the topic during our chitchat as we want to keep it short but sweet.  

That way it’s not too much of a pain to watch the chitchat more than once in order to promote memorisation and acquisition of the language. 

What memories from school stand out for you?

As always, when we have a chitchat we endeavour to clear up any doubts with the language we use and sometimes we don’t realise when we use some unusual terms and phrases. 

That’s why it’s important to review the explanations you’ll find below which will, hopefully, ensure everything is as clear as day. 

That being said, sit back, get your earphones in and concentrate on what we say…fingers crossed you’ll enjoy it, we certainly enjoyed recording the video as we always do 😊

It's okay! We know it can be difficult to understand.
