9th Semester Oral Challenge: Guidebook to the great cafes in Morelia

13 Nov

People are always looking for great cafes. We are going to compile an audio guidebook that can help both visitors and locals find the best places to visit and enjoy in Morelia.

You are going to record an audio podcast (with your own voice) using Voicethread. Submit your podcast or talking photo in this post as a comment (found on the bottom of the post. Any audio applications sent personally via email to the teacher will not be opened. Here on the blogpost, they can be accessed by the rest of the class…and the rest of the world!

Take pictures or download them to have a visual reference of the places you will mention in your guidebook. If you are downloading someone else’s picture, please state the name of the person who took the photo and where you found it to avoid plagiarism.

      Hello Julio,
      I will comment here because I was not able to comment on your voicethread…do you really think that Cafe MX is homey? I like it for all the out-of-this-world decorations (the humans and the world) but I wouldn’t call it homey.

      • Julio César Quintana Gaytán November 20, 2016 at 8:26 pm #

        Yes teacher, personally I feel it is homey because when you get in you can feel a warm environment, and the wood decorations remember me much a little living room with a chimney.

        Also, I made a modification on the voicethread where I add the web page where I downloaded the photo that I used.
