Activities to develop

Estimado estudiante:

La presente GUIA tiene las pautas para realizar su producto final de una presentación oral a través de
un video. En ese video usted presentará el producto final de la tarea de Writing (el afiche, infografía
o folleto).

Esta tarea tendrá tres fases: sensibilización, práctica y ejecución del video.

Usted debe dar cuenta de tres aspectos:

a) Hablar de sí mismo.

b) Contar una experiencia de un viaje.

c) Hablar del clima del lugar que describe en su experiencia de viaje y dar algunas recomendaciones
sobre qué se debe tener en cuenta, de acuerdo con el clima.

d) Dar recomendaciones para planear un viaje al lugar que usted describió.

Es necesario que usted haga los ejercicios de los contenidos en línea que se relacionan al inicio de
cada paso; de esta manera, podrá dar cuenta de lo aprendido en los ejercicios de escritura que se
proponen en el proceso y así mismo en el producto final.

En cada etapa se señalan las partes de la unidad de los contenidos en línea que usted debe trabajar,
y se hace específico qué actividades debe subir al foro. Es decir, no todas las actividades que se
trabajan en los contenidos en línea deben ser publicadas en el foro. Revise cuáles debe publicar.

Descriptor de autoevaluación de acuerdo con el Marco Común Europeo de Referencia para expresión
oral:

 Puedo comunicarme en tareas sencillas y habituales que requieren un intercambio simple y


directo de información sobre actividades y asuntos cotidianos.
 Utilizo una serie de expresiones y frases para describir con términos sencillos a mi familia y
otras personas, mis condiciones de vida, mi origen educativo y mi trabajo actual o el último
que tuve.
