Back again, with Mozart...

These are a few lines of the song Amadeus, that you listened to and worked on in class.
Now change the verb of the sentences to the past simple.

1756, Salzburg, January 27, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is born
1761, at the age of five Amadeus begins composing
1773, he writes his first piano concerto
1782, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart marries Constance Weber
1784, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart becomes a free mason
1791, Mozart composes "The Magic Flute"
On December 5th of that same year, Mozart dies
1985, Austrian rock singer Falco records Rock Me Amadeus!

Now, watch this presentation on Mozart.

Here is a piece of the film Amadeus.

Por razones totalmente ajenas a mi voluntad me veo obligada a cerrar este blog temporalmente.
No voy a eliminarlo. Podréis seguir trabajando con él, pero no voy a actualizarlo en un tiempo.

Me ha costado mucho tomar esta decisión porque cada entrada de este blog, cada enlace están cargados de ilusión, de cariño y de dedicación a mis alumnos. Sin embargo, no se puede continuar cuando no quedan ánimos y, sobre todo, no se puede continuar a costa de cualquier cosa.

Ojalá en el futuro se apoyen los proyectos educativos con los recursos humanos que de verdad se necesitan. Por ahora, así están las cosas...
Muchas gracias y un abrazo grande a todos mis bloggers.
I'll miss you!

BYE, BYE 4ºESO !!!

My dear students,
It's been wonderful to see you grow up and learn throughout these years.
We've had fun together and we've also worked very hard. We've shared some moments that I will cherish forever.
I wish you all the best of luck at your new highschool. But always remember there's something more important than being a good student, and that is being a good person.

I'll miss you all,

Do you like eating out?

As an EXTRA ACTIVITY for unit 6 you'll have to write a role play and act it out in front of your class. The story will take place at the restaurant.

There will be three or four students in each group and the role play must be ready before the 23rd of May.

You may need some help with the VOCABULARY and EXPRESSIONS used at the restaurant.

Here are some helpful sites:
- VOCABULARY at the restaurant (and pronounciation practice)
- USEFUL SENTENCES: booking, ordering, paying, etc.

Now, you can watch this as an example.

We spend most of our lives thinking and worrying about our future:
"Will I pass my exams? Will I get married? Will I get a good job? Will I be happy? Will we control Global Warming?...

..."We should all be concerned about our future because we'll have to spend the rest of our lives there." Charles F. Kettering (inventor).

I can make a prediction right now: IF you do this EXTRA ACTIVITY you'll improve your English!!

Now practise the future tense with an old song:

Que Será Será
When I was just a little girl

I asked my mother,
what will I be
Will I be pretty, will I be rich
Here's what she said to me.
Que Será, Será,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Será, Será
What will be, will be.
When I was young, I fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows, day after day
Here's what my sweetheart said.
Que Será, Será,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Será, Será
What will be, will be.
Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother, what will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich
I tell them tenderly.
Que Será, Será,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Será, Será
What will be, will be.

Miriam and Rocío (4ºC) wanted this song "Stand by me". OK, girls, here it is:
