Merry Christmas to all! Digital story of the Nativity

Hello everyone!

I post this entry to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I hope you make the most of these days, find time to relax, switch off, spend time with the family, travel, and start the New Year with renewed energy!

I guess (and hope!) you all know the history of Christmas. Last year around these dates I found this digital version of the story on the Internet and I wanted to share it with you. It's so good!

I would also like you to find some time to revise English (watch films, series; check links on the blog; read, etc.). Remember also that on the 16th we have the test of Dracula. When we come back from Christmas Leah will do an activity with you to remember the main events in the book (that is what will be on the test, not specific details).

See you on the 9th January then! :)

Future continuous and future perfect

Hello everyone!

Well, the first term seems to be coming to an end!

On our last days of class we finished correcting a few exercises that were lagging behind. We did a mock test so that you could have an idea of what to expect in the one we do tomorrow, and it also helped you learn some useful vocabulary, collocations and prepositions.

We also corrected the photocopy about future tenses. It was pretty much of a revision, but there were two new things: the future continuous and the future perfect.

Exercises 1 and 2: Future continuous I and II
Exercises 3 and 4will vs. present simple; will vs. will be +ing (future simple vs. future continuous)
Exercise 5: Future perfect
