Text: He doesnt go to Hogwarts!
There are 20 students in this group, 12 girls and 8 boys. They are 12 or 13
years old. They attend 6th grade elementary school and have been learning
English for two years. For most of them, the only opportunity to speak
English is during these classes they have twice a week.

Timetable fit

Ss have mastered the basic conversation skills: talking about themselves,


describing pictures, objects, other people and their activities in the Present
Simple tense. They are in the process of expanding their vocabulary and
they constantly have difficulties in expressing themselves, so teachers help
is often required.
