Уважаемые студенты группы! Мои требования в большей части игнорируются вами! Домашние задания не выполняются вообще или с большой задержкой! Тренировкой произношения не занимаетесь! Лексика и грамматика на уровне троечных абитуриентов! Речевая дисциплина - ноль! Страшная небрежность в устной речи на занятиях! Мыслительная деятельность свидетельствует о нежелании многих думать глубоко, серьезно, четко, логично! Это положение не приемлемо для меня! Учебный процесс по английскому языку практически разрушен вами! Вы лишаете меня возможности работать в группе качественно и компетентно! Мои наблюдения и статистика вашей работы на сайте свидетельствуют от том, что успеваемость резко пошла вниз. Прогнозы результатов экзамена: оценка "4" - пять студентов, оценка "3" - пять студентов. Выход: 1) начать заниматься, 2) поменять преподавателя. Выбор за вами!

Make sure that you have left at least ome comment on each video. 2) Write an essay on 'My first day in business'. Think of the best title. Size about 350-400 words. P.S.: Ignoring work on the site can damage the teaching and learning environment. When students choose this strategy, the teacher doesn't have a right for emotinal abuse, but has the right to seek new inquisitve and hardworking students.
Dear Group! The following are your hometasks for discussions on our website. Part One: 1) Write an essay on chapters 8-15 (about 300 words), think of the best title.

Dear Group! Look through the following synopsis of your homework for the Monday class. 1) An essay (300 words) on Huckleberry Finn based on the ideas in task 10 of the lesson plan, post it in the Interpreting Fiction section 2) Multimedia podcast on Mark Twain's works, writing style, criticism (audio, video, PP presentations) 3) Huchleberry Finn - chapter 8-15 4) Ten comments on videos about Business Issues and Economics 5) Regular work on the site: a) two pieces of news, comments in the news, blogs, videos; b) forum discussions - at least a message a day. P.S.: When the requirements aimed at building sound professional skills and competences are not met and when tasks are not done, your teacher can't guarantee any quality. But the teacher continues to pursuit quality and is prone to look for those who need quality like fresh air. When his students ignore quality, they downgrade the quality of the teaching service. I don't want my teaching products to be of low quality. I will look for new clients.
