School year 2009/2010



Welcome back!

Okay, let's begin. Hello everyone. A new school year is just starting, are you ready? Yes, we're here again to help with your English lessons. Still wondering why learn English? Well, apart from the fact that it's compulsory ;-), English is the universal language on the Internet and we all adore the Internet, don't we? I'm sure you can find at least three reasons to learn a bit of English. Some reasons: Twilight books, international music, trips, job market, foreign friends...


Ana's tips on ... HOW TO STUDY ENGLISH

-Before starting a new Unit, read carefully, study and understand the Grammar Appendix at the end of your book. Make outlines and summaries. Try to understand the grammar references, the examples and write down on your notebook one more example of each reference.
- Read at home the text at the beginning of every Unit and look for the words you don’t understand into a dictionary.
- Make a list of the false friends that appear in every unit and the ones you already know
- Do the exercises on your workbook.
- Keep your notebook clean and tidy. Use 2 pens of different colours, one for the Spanish words and sentences and another one for the English ones.
- Organize your time of study daily, do not leave the exercises for the last day.
- Ask your teacher in class every time you need, when you don’t understand some explanation, words you can’t find, exercises you don’t know how to do, doubts…
- Take part in the oral exercises in class. Use the English language when you need to ask or say anything. Oral participation is very important.
- Give your opinions or suggestions every time you want.

Have a great school year. Good luck!

World Book and Copyright Day - 23rd April


23rd April

WORLD BOOK DAY

The connection between 23 April and books was first made in 1923 by booksellers in Catalonia, Spain as a way to honour the author Miguel de Cervantes who died on that day. This became a part of the celebrations of the Saint George's Day (also 23 April) in the region, where it has been traditional since the medieval era for men to give roses to their lovers and since 1925 for the woman to give a book in exchange. Half the yearly sales of books in Catalonia are at this time with over 400,000 sold and exchanged for over 4 million roses.
In 1995, UNESCO decided that the World Book and Copyright Day would be celebrated on this date because of the Catalonian festival and because the date is also the anniversary of the birth and death of William Shakespeare, the death of Inca Garcilaso de la Vega and Josep Pla, the birth of Maurice Druon, Vladimir Nabokov, Manuel Mejía Vallejo and Halldór Laxness.
Although 23 April is often stated as the anniversary of the deaths of both Shakespeare and Cervantes, this is not strictly correct. Cervantes died on 23 April according the Gregorian calendar; however, at this time England still used the Julian calendar. Whilst Shakespeare died on 23 April by the Julian calendar in use in his own country at the time, actually he died ten days after Cervantes, because of the discrepancy between the two date systems.

Britain's Got Talent


Susan Boyle (11 April 2009)

You'd be forgiven for judging the book by the cover when you meet 47-year-old Susan. Having never married, sharing a flat with her cat has given her a cheeky sense of humour, and even the judges were ready to write her off, until - that is - until she began peforming her rendition of 'I Dreamed a Dream' from Les Miserables... (Source: Britain's Got Talent)

April Fools' Day


April Fools' Day

April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day, although not a holiday in its own right, is a notable day celebrated in many countries on April 1. The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, enemies, and neighbors, or sending them on fool's errand, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible. Traditionally, in some countries, the jokes only last until noon: like UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool". Elsewhere, such as in Ireland, France, and the USA, the jokes last all day. (from Wikipedia)

Sylvia Plath


Nicholas Hughes, Sylvia Plath’s son commits suicide

The son of the poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath has taken his own life, 46 years after his mother gassed herself while he slept. He was only a baby when his mother died but she had already sketched out what he meant to her in one of her late poems. (In Nick and the Candlestick, published in her posthumous collection Ariel)

For further information: Times Online

Nick And The Candlestick
I am a miner. The light burns blue.
Waxy stalactites
Drip and thicken, tears

The earthen womb

Exudes from its dead boredom.
Black bat airs

Wrap me, raggy shawls,
Cold homicides.
They weld to me like plums.

Old cave of calcium
Icicles, old echoer.
Even the newts are white,

Those holy Joes.
And the fish, the fish----
Christ! They are panes of ice,

A vice of knives,
A piranha
Religion, drinking

Its first communion out of my live toes.
The candle
Gulps and recovers its small altitude,

Its yellows hearten.
O love, how did you get here?
O embryo

Remembering, even in sleep,
Your crossed position.
The blood blooms clean

In you, ruby.
The pain
You wake to is not yours.

Love, love,
I have hung our cave with roses.
With soft rugs----

The last of Victoriana.
Let the stars
Plummet to their dark address,

Let the mercuric
Atoms that cripple drip
Into the terrible well,

You are the one
Solid the spaces lean on, envious.
You are the baby in the barn.
