Description  

THIS IS A NON-SKYPE LESSON. You MUST request the topic when you book the lesson. 

This lesson will consist of a video, quiz, listening, and reading. 
 This lesson features listening, vocabulary and reading. You will get many forms of English in this lesson.  


Usually, these talks are under 15-minutes.   When you request this lesson, I will send you the link to watch the talk and take the quiz and answer all discussion questions.  I will also send you the transcript and a vocabulary list.

During the NON-SKYPE Lesson, all sections will be completed on your own but you will communicate with me through Cafetalk and the TedED site. You will have 2 weeks to complete the NON-SKYPE lesson before automatic completion by Cafetalk. 


Please choose ONLY 1 talk with your request.  If you do NOT choose, I will choose for you.
