How to pay a compliment (MY LAST POST)

It's been a pleasure sharing with you on this blog about English language!

But it's time for me to close this blog as I can't update it as often as I should. As I have already explained on this one that I'm closing too, I opened too many blogs when I started blogging. I am still very keen on blogs, but since 2008 I have learned a lot, and now I have just decided to keep blogging about any educational topic on just one blog, instead of having one for each topic.

So, please, keep in touch on this blog: Reflexions per a mestres. I started it as a blog on education where I would write in my mother tongue, Catalan. But from now on, I will blog there in English as well if I need it, for example when the topic is about English, TFL or TSL and so on...

By the way, if you want to learn more idioms on how to pay a compliment... watch this video!!!

Double comparative

Back to this blog! I am still trying to build a whole grammar curriculum from the resources I find online. This year we have a much more longer curriculum so I'll try to find more presentations on other topics that I haven't posted about up to now.

So, let's start with comparatives and double comparatives. And, please, check the old posts if you are looking for videos and presentations on verb tenses.

UK Queen's Christmas message

Listen to the Queen of the UK. It's an interesting and useful activity for English language learners. She speaks perfect English and her speech is especially suitable for learners because it is clear and extremely slow so it is easy to understand (although it isn't in fact, real British rhythm)
Her speech would also be interesting to work on vocabulary about solidarity.

Seasonal songs

A great love song for Christmas:

And a song for the new year, although it's a little depressing ...

ABBA Lyrics
Happy New Year Lyrics
