Overview of the 4 weeks.
OK. Hello, everybody. And welcome. This is an introduction to English for Nature Conservation. And I’m your teacher. My name is Ray Genet. Now let’s look at what you’ll be doing over the next four weeks. We’re going to focus on some writing and reading. And you’re going to acquire vocabulary to describe landscapes. And you’re going to read about the human connection to nature and why it’s important for nature conservation. Now in week 2, we will also be doing reading. And you’re going to look at the vocabulary to describe forests. And we’re going to look at Forest conservation in New Zealand. And in week 3, the focus will be on listening, and you will be listening to vocabulary about ecological restoration.
And you will listen to a video about The Brook Sanctuary in Nelson, in New Zealand. And in the last week, the focus will be on speaking. And you will learn how to design an effective PowerPoint presentation. And you will evaluate a presentation for a kea conservation project. And so I really hope that you enjoy this course. So let’s begin.
