Hello everyone, Today we are going to learn about expressing an opinion. Your first writing task will be to write a paragraph expressing an opinion about a topic of your choice.

First, let's study some vocabulary. Please click the link: Academic Word List.

Students in Daniel Ferrara's class at International Christian University (ICU) are blogging. Each student has their own blog. Would you like to have your own blog?

Let's look at some blog posts by ICU students. Please choose one blog post and click the link. Then read the post and leave a comment.
