I’ve added a new navigation bar at the top right side of the blog.
Just move your cursor over each category and a submenu will scroll down. Then, if you’re interested in vocabulary practice for intermediate or B1, click on the link.
It sometimes takes a while to load — sorry, I’m still working out how to make it faster — so be patient and you’ll get to your destination in less than no time.
I told you about this website in class, but I still needed to write about it here on the blog. This post deals with ororo.tv, a website which we can use, as the people who run it actually say, ‘to learn English by watching tv-shows and movies’.
You can find here almost everything — the best tv shows are just one click away, so that’s just great. The shows can be displayed by popularity, by genre, by name, or by year of production, for example. If you want to get the latest episodes, you should display the results by date (newest).
Or more simply, just type the title — or part of it — in the search box.
So just check it out and, most importantly, enjoy while you learn.
I know it’s been a while since I last posted anything, but I thought I’d have my new website up and running by now, so I will still be publishing here for some more time.
What I have brought here today is this TV series from the BBC, HORRIBLE HISTORIES, which you can watch on ororo.tv on the following link or just by clicking on the picture below.
You can also go to Horrible Histories website by clicking HERE.
This is a compilation of documents I’ve been posting over the last few years on this topic: CRIME
This is my new blogroll on books, reading, literature… It’s student oriented, so I hope you find it useful — that’s my intention.
On the blog you can see your own work. If you’d like to contribute with book reviews, recommendations, or anything of interest you might have in mind, please let me know!
This is the recording for unit 3A’s listening comprehension exercise. You can find the key below.
1.- Sam likes his job, but Marcia doesn’t
2.- Sam has to deal with some very difficult people and has to put up with some idiots. Marcia thinks managing a hotel is quite stressful and doesn’t like people complaining all the time. She can’t stand it when people steal things. Also either she or her husband has to be at the hotel and it’s very hard to get a holiday together.
b) & c)
SAM 1e) 2a) 3d) 4g)

Hi, everyone, This is the handout we’ve been doing in class. The key is at the end of the document, as usual.
