  1. Hi, can we have a better definition than 'international gangsters'? Also, where are the key learning points for the lesson? What did you learn about word choice?

  2. Key learning points for the lesson is to be posted up by Index No. 2 .
    For word choice, does it refer to the importance of choosing the right choice of words?

  3. My original instructions was for index no.1 to do the summary for the lessons on Word Choice and for index no. 2 to do the feedback lesson for the reading tasks. But since the feedback lesson was interrupted by the fire drill, I guess it is alright for the two of you to work together for the lesson on Word Choice.
