We are afraid that we will fall.
Go to the edge, he said.
They went. He pushed them……. and they flew.” G. Apollinari

Some ideas for to work in the blog

My dream date

As it's Valentine's Day on Saturday, try this sample activity from the its-english web site with your students. All they have to do is answer a series of questions in order to create a short story in which they go on a date with the boy or girl of their dreams. They can then print their stories to display in the classroom.

Topical classroom activities

If you’re wondering how a monkey, nicknamed Troublemaker, ended up on the cover of a teachers’ magazine, then take a look at the topical classroom activities we’ve prepared for this issue. “Troublemaker” is one of the winning photos in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. You’ll find activities related to the competition as well as International Year of Astronomy, Barbie’s 50th birthday, Star Trek, jazz, April Fool’s Day, green day (not the rock group) and Kings of Leon (yes, the rock group). And continuing the red carpet theme, we have a fun classroom game in which students identify stars arriving at an awards ceremony and complete a picture puzzle to identify four mystery stars.

Our free sample activity is a quiz to test your students' knowledge of Kings of Leon, currently one of the most popular rock bands in the world. This month the group's on tour in Spain, France, Holland and Germany.

28th February: The Day of Andalusia.

What do you know about Andalusia?

  • Look for information about our Autonomy Community of Andalusia in the Internet. It must be in English. You only have to copy the information and pictures in your English Notebook. This information must be related to Andalusia, it can be about a monument, city, place, etc. When you finish this work you should show it to your teacher.
  • Here you have an example.

    Andalusia (Spanish: Andalucía) is an autonomous community of Spain. It is the most populous and the second largest, in terms of land area, of the seventeen autonomous communities of the Kingdom of Spain. Its capital and largest city is Seville. The region is divided into eight provinces: Huelva, Seville, Cádiz, Córdoba, Málaga, Jaén, Granada and Almería.

    Andalusia is located south of the autonomous communities of Extremadura and Castile-La Mancha; west of the autonomous community of Murcia and the Mediterranean Sea; east of Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean; and north of the Mediterranean Sea, the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates Spain from Morocco, and the Atlantic Ocean. The small British overseas territory of Gibraltar shares a three-quarter-mile land border with the Andalusian province of Cádiz at the eastern end of the Strait of Gibraltar.

    Andalusia and Villanueva Mesía

    • Write about Andalusia and your town in the English Blog. Can you explain how is your town?, how do you celebrate the Andalusia´s day?.
    • You can write about our traditions, festivities or any relevant aspects that you think are interesting.
    • Remember: Do a space next to a punctuation mark. Put capital letter then a point. Beware of copy and paste from a translator. Translations are nonsense! Beware of spelling or typing mistakes!
    • You must do this task until February 28th.
