Tóm tắt bài

1. Before You Listen Unit 4 Lớp 12

Work in pairs. Ask and answer the questions. (Làm việc từng đôi. Hỏi và trả lời các câu hỏi.)

  1. What school subjects are you good at? (Bạn học giỏi môn nào?)
  2. Which ones do you enjoy most/least in your class? Explain why. (Bạn thích/không thích học môn nào nhất? Tại sao?)

Guide to answer

  1. I’m good at Maths and Physics.
  2. Certainly, I enjoy Maths and Physics most as they are my favourite subjects. I find them interesting because these subjects relate to all things which happen in my life and the nature, for example the rule of expansion of solid substances,…The subject I enjoy least is, to tell the truth, History. It is too long to remember about the historical events.
