I hope your weekend is off to a good start!! (= I hope your weekend has started well)
On Monday we had our first class after the Christmas holidays and we did a speaking activity in groups. You had to ask your partners about:
- The best people last Christmas
- The best place last Christmas
- The best moment last Christmas
On Wednesday we had one hour with Leah and you worked with the book Dracula. You revised the vocabulary with a game called "taboo" and then you discussed the main characters in the story. Remember that we have the test next Monday, 16th January. If you have read and understood the book, you won't (will not) have any problem :)
Then we started unit 5 and we talked about robots and things they can do. I gave you a photocopy about the future: please, complete it for next Tuesday.
On Friday we did a speaking activity with information about yourselves. Then you changed your papers and you had to explain the other person's answers. It was very funny!
Finally, we watched an episode from The Simpsons: "The Lemon of Troy" (season 6, episode 24). If you want to watch it again, you can download it here. And click here for the subtitles in English.
Con esta actividad quería haceros ver que sabéis mucho más de lo que créeis. Este capítulo era 100% original, tal y como lo emiten en EEUU y el Reino Unido. ¿A qué sienta bien cuando uno ve que puede entender frases enteras? Con la ayuda de subtítulos, vale, pero aún así lo estáis entendiendo. Espero que esto os haya animado a ver películas y series en versión original.
And that's all for now!
I hope you have a great weekend!
