This week, the learner will learn and practice "greetings, goodbyes, needs, feelings and daily expressions". The learner will learn via mirroring and observing the teacher in the beginning and will be expected to improve and use the target language on his/her own by the end of the week. They will begin by greeting each other and try to plan their day using the target language. Friendly words will be used to build up the conversation such as "coffee, cinema, "brand names; eg: Zara", theatre, and so on. The learner will also be use gestures to describe a need (eating, going, drinking, and so on) and the teacher will provide the lexis accordingly. They will spend minimum 2 hours doing various activities in the city to practice the target language and the student will be asked to record a video log at the end of the month to talk about what they learned, liked, disliked, where they went and visited, and what they did as their final assessment (for beginner levels and for students who are not interested in writing).
