SPANISH-DANISH LINK

As part of the Comenius project I'm involved in, the Danish and the Spanish partners have decided to get to practice both English and Spanish first through "ning" and next year, if possible, through an exchange between students from both countries. Sounds great!!! You can have a look at our social network and you can even offer some contributions.

PODCAST ON CLIMATE CHANGE

Apart from working with "voicethread", some of my students have managed to create their own "podcasts". Here's an example of one of them that has to do with climate change. Thanks to Berta (the Economy teacher) for all her work.

INTELLIGENT HUMOUR

Gary Larson is one of my favourite cartoonists. His sense of humour is very peculiar and mordantly hilarious. This is one of his famous comic strips from "The Far Side". If you want to get a hint on his sense of humour you can click on the link under the picture, or even better... buy any of his brilliant books.

FANCY A BIT OF HISTORY?


One of the most frequently asked questions by my pupils is why some English words are so similar to French. Well, as I haven´t got much time during my lessons to explain the influence of the Norman Conquest in Britain, I´ve decided to do it through this blog.
I´ve found a great site in which you can find out plenty of things about the Norman Conquest and its influence in a very easy and enjoyable way.
Try the quiz and learn as much as you can!
