How is it going? Holidays are finished and here we are once more ready to start working! I know I have already said this before but you must remember this term is specially short so DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING FOR THE LAST MINUTE!
As you know this term we will be working on your Oral Presentation Skills. I know it seems a bit scaring at the moment, but don't worry we are just learning so I don't expect your presentations to be perfect.
Hope you found the Oral presentation sample useful and you got some good ideas for yours. If you want to know the date of your oral presentation check the calendar below!
By for now....
How is it going? I know you are all stressed by this time. As you know we have an exam in less than a week time so I have left some activities to help you practise conditionals at the sidebar where it says grammar activities!!!
I'm back with some news.
First of all I want to congratulate you for the good results of the last exam. In general,you have improved quite a lot and you should be very happy about it but..... don't relax too much. Remember there is another exam around the corner!!!
As you probably remember 80% of this term grade refers to your exams, another 10% corresponds to the book we have already read and what about the other 10% missing? EXACTLY!!!
How were your "short holidays"? Hope you had time to relax and enjoy yourselves!Remember you have an exam tomorrow so if you need some extra revision have a look at the side bar!!! I have added some more activities to practise the future.
GOOD LUCK and....!!!!
One exam over!!Hope you found it easy and you did it well!! This post has nothing to do with Grammar, Phrasal Verbs or Collocations...
This post is just to share with you one of the most beautiful videos I have found on the net. It has good points to think about and quite a clear message!
As you probably already know on Saturday is Valentine's day. This festival is getting more and more popular over the years.
On the one hand some people are looking forward to Valentine's Day all year and think this is a great opportunity to show the ones you love that you really care. On the other hand some others dread this festival and think is just an excuse for shops to make lots of money. What do you think about this? I would love to see your point of view!
If you are one of those who celebrate Valentine's day and you haven't written your postcard yet, you have a nice link to do it here.
Maybe you are too lazy to send a card and you would rather send a text message. Here you have some handy text abreviations to help you say I Love You.
WUBMV? Will you be my Valentine?
ILUVU I love you
:'-) I'm so happy, I'm crying
Xoxoxoxoxo Hugs and kisses
LUWAM<3 Love you with all my heart
KOTL Kiss on the lips
@}'-,-- A rose
12x@>--,--- A dozen roses

Well, that's all from me now! And if you are a romantic, have a look at the following video before leaving. It is probably one of the most romantic videos ever!
Hope you like it !
