GETTING READY FOR EXAMS!!!!



All students hate June because of exams and you are not the exception. Today I'm going to give you different activities for you to do. Depending on your needs or on the skills you are going to be tested, decide the order to do them.
I would begin with a listening exercise, as it may take some time to upload. 


Reading comprehension: PROM TIME

Next there are two links with lots of grammar exercises.

FAREWELL TO OUR 2 BATXILLERAT STUDENTS

Time goes by really quickly and you have already finished your last year at our school. We do really hope we have been able to inspire you in your learning process and have helped you to achieve your goals. 

And you will also need a lot of grit (coraje, determinación). And that is what Michelle Obama talked about last week at a graduation at a high school in Nashville. Watch a part of  her speech and make it yours.Click on the following link and you will be able to see the video. You can also read her words.

Michelle Obama On “Grit”


What I learned was that when something doesn’t go your way, you’ve just got to adjust. You’ve got to dig deep and work like crazy. And that’s when you’ll find out what you’re really made of, during those hard times.
But you can only do that if you’re willing to put yourself in a position where you might fail. And that’s why so often, failure is the key to success for so many great people. Take Steve Jobs, who was fired from Apple early in his career, and now his iPods and iPads and iPhones have revolutionized the entire world. Oprah was demoted from her first job as a news anchor, now she doesn’t even need a last name. (Laughter.) And then there’s this guy, Barack Obama, who lost — (applause) — I could take up a whole afternoon talking about his failures, but — (laughter) — he lost his first race for Congress, and now he gets to call himself my husband. (Laughter and applause.)
All jokes aside, the point is, is that resilience and grit, that ability to pick yourself up when you fall. Those are some of the most important skills you’ll need as you make your way through college and through life.
And here’s the thing, graduates: These qualities are not ones that you’re born with. They’re not like the color of your eyes or your height. They’re not qualities that are beyond your control. Instead, you can dictate whether you’ll have grit. You decide how hard you’ll work. So I want you to make those choices right now, today, if you haven’t already done so. Make those choices. I want you to tell yourself that no matter what challenges you face, that you will commit yourself to achieving your goals, no matter where life takes you.

We wish you the best!!!
