This is a compulsory task for students of the formative cycle of Travel Agencies and Events Management and an optional task for students of the formative cycle of Tourist Accommodation Management.

Here you have the document with the guidelines you need to do the project.
Good luck and enjoy it!

Assignment: This project should be carried out at Barajas airport. You (each student) must interview one person and ask for permission to video-record the interview. If not, at least ask permission to record the sound. I recommend you to do it in pairs but each student has to carry out an interview. Some interviews will be published on the blog for educational purposes.
Aim: To use English as a tool for communication and to get to know the people who visit our country (nationalities, reasons for travelling, accommodation, expectations…)
Assessment criteria: It will be graded from 1 to 10 and will be part of the mark of the oral skills.
Deadline: By Friday 15th November. You will have to send me the files (with an extension I can see and listen to) and the transcription of the dialogues. We'll probably do it through the Moodle platform. The files have to be named as follows: yourname_surname_age_13_14. This assignment won't be corrected if it doesn't follow these rules.

You can begin like this:
Good morning/afternoon/evening. I’m a student of Travel Agencies and Events Management / Tourist Accommodation Management / Tourism at Hotel Escuela High School, Madrid.
