Obama's Speech

Good morning everyone,

First of all, sorry for not updating the blog during the weekend, but I was busy with some other things. Anyway, better late than never!

On Monday/Tuesday we finished off the unit about crime correcting some final exercises on indirect questions, and we continued commenting on The Canterbury Tales. After that, we devoted most part of the lesson to discussing Bin Laden's death and the effect it will have on the international sphere. We watched Obama's official announcement and we also listened to a news report. You have the video below:

I've just had a quick look at the "Quote of the day" widget in the blog, and, curiously enough, one of the sentences that appeared was the following:

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy", Martin Luther King.

Do you agree with this?

On Wednesday/Thursday we started talking about films and I gave you some handouts on the passive voice. We'll continue with that topic today learning some vocabulary related to cinema, and we'll correct the photocopies.

I hope you've all had a great weekend!
