For Thursday, we're going to do a vocabulary exercise in class. You can prepare by simply reading over the texts on page 41 (The Alps: Living Space, Resort and Transit Zone) and page 43 (Environmental Challenges in Constructing the Gotthard Base Tunnel) and MARKING THE VOCABULARY YOU DON'T KNOW.
We will start the lesson on Thursday with exercise 4 on page 42 (words with similar meanings) so you might prepare that as well.
This may take you half an hour (30 minutes). Make it so!
