Dear students,

It´s the end of the semester and I already have that feeling of sadness for leaving you. It was a huge pleasure to be your teacher and to learn so much from each one of you.

This is a feedback I´d like to give you. I´ve learned so much from blogging that I felt I needed to give my students the experience of working with a new means of communication you could use to express yourselves in English. I know some of you didn´t have so much time to devote to the project but all in all I considered it a success. At the beginning your posts were very shy but more and more I noticed you found your "own voices in English. How do you feel about blogging now? Do you plan to keep your blog or is it something you don´t intend to keep? Please, use the comments are to give me some feedback.

I´ve also created the slideshow below as a gift to you, with all the blogs you´ve created. It´s YOU I see in each of them, your interest, your style, your way of seeing the world. HOPE TO BE YOUR TEACHER AGAIN. Click on the play button and enjoy.

Let´s practise vocabulary:
Go to QUIZLET and do the exercises the site has generated for you. I´m sure after having done them you´ll have memorized all the words we´ve seen in unit 5C.

-online exercise about connectors: whereas, also, although, etc.
- grammar exercises: quantifiers, articles (a, an, the) and gerund/infinitive.
-more vocabulary work: crossword, wordsearch.

Writing letters:
As we´re talking about work, how about learning how to write a letter?
This is a letter generator which will help you write your first formal letter. As soon as you finish your letter, don´t forget to print it and bring the copy to your teacher.

TASK 5 : APRIL Posts

get MORE SKINS from

As 22nd April is "Earth Day", I´d like to propose to our group that our April post be devoted to the topic ENVIRONMENT. On this specific day, people all over the world will be writing, reading and discussing about environmental problems and solutions. When you publish your post remember to Label it (tag) as earthcast08.

I´ve come across several videos and sites related to the topic and would like YOU to have a look at them. You could associate your original topic to my suggestion (EX: animals + environment= their habitat, or animal extinction) or write a brand new topic inspired by any of the videos below or anything else which inspires you.
