Before beginning this scenario, do a Global Level Check and then a Level Check!

Your principal has noticed that there are fewer and fewer students signing up for language courses at your school and in your community. Next week, your language class will be launching a new blog to help promote a language throughout the school and beyond. The blog’s home page will include a statement outlining the purpose of the blog and a list of the benefits of learning an additional language. In the blog, you will also showcase what you’ve been doing in class (using pictures, sound clips, comments, etc.) and make your blog as appealing as possible to prospective students. This can include features such as past events, details of upcoming events, a list of target language songs and artists, bios of popular athletes/actors.  To promote the blog, carry out a live interview in front of the class during which a student host will ask you about this exciting new project. The audience will have a chance to ask you questions and try out the blog before its official launch!
