THANKSGIVING

28 11 2010

On Thursday we had our particular Thanksgiving day.

We didn´t eat turkey, but we ate other things and remembered that special day with the aid of Charlie, our assistant, and with the help of a video on the history of that celebration. Apart from that, we had fun watching how Thanksgiving is currently celebrated thanks to the wonderful characters of “FRIENDS”.

In case you want to remember all that again or in case my students abroad (who should also have a place in this blog) want to have a look at it, I am submitting here the document we worked on. On that document, you have the links for all the videos we watched, so all you have to do is simply click on them. Apart from that, you also have some questions on each of the videos to check your comprehension. And in case you need them, I am also attaching the solutions.

Our classmate Manolo Bautista, who is currently in the USA (in Alburquerque) sent us some time ago some photos from a ballon party in this city. The photos are fantastic and it seems so much fun, so I am attaching some photos for you to see them.

I need to say sorry to him, because I just realised he had already sent them to me many days ago. But it is better late than never!!!!!

Do you remember the listening comprehension that we did in class related to telling lies????? And all the uncomfortable silence when I asked you if you had ever lied and got away with it????

Well, since I keep my promises and I told you I would include it in the blog, there it goes!!!!!

First of all, the listening and then the questions for checking the comprehension.
