First lesson!

Next Wednesday, 1st October, we will have a general view of our subject. We will check the syllabus, the tasks, Moodle and other important aspects.
But, we will finish our first lesson singing!
This is the song I suggest: Mamma Mia by Abba (1975)
And here you've got the activity we'll do in class.

Have fun!

The school year starts next week!
We have a syllabus full of language, grammar and tasks, but we'll begin with all these later.
Let's start just having fun. There is a way of learning a language that is based on playing and singing. It is especially used when teaching children.
But, why not with adult language learners? So, let's sing, laugh and play too, just like our pupils do in English lessons.

Do you know the word "spam" ? Where does it come from? What did it originally mean?
You can guess the answer to all these questions watching the video of Monthy Python. It's simply hilarious... true English humour!

And then, sing!
