Group Discussion: Jobs and Work

Hey everybody!

Good evening. Here is our next discussion topic for Saturday (October 4th) and Monday (October 6th).  The topic is jobs and work.

I’m going to do things a little differently this time: I will provide all the lexis you will need to understand the questions… but I’m only going to post a few sample questions!

This time, I would like you to create at least two questions for the discussion yourself!

That means no cheating and using my questions.  🙂

We will start the discussion with one or two beginner questions, and then one or two intermediate questions, and with the rest of the time we will ask the advanced questions!

If you are a student of mine, I hope to see you at one of the discussion groups. If anybody (student or not) has any questions about this blog, please let me know: Post a comment here, find me on twitter, or email me through my website. Thanks!
