A NEW LANGUAGE

It seems that a new language has been discovered in India and we watched a very interesting video dealing with this discovery. The video came accompanied with some questions to check its comprehension. What a nice way to start our new topic: languages!!!!

MODERN FAMILY

To finish with the topic of the family, we saw the first chapter of a new American series that deals with the concept of modern family, making us think of all the possible families there can be.

In case you want to watch it again, I am including the link for you to watch the first chapter of this hilarious show. Enjoy it!!!!!





TELLING LIES

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.
