23rd April will be the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. Most of you know who he was and how important he is and this is going to be a very special anniversary. Let's find out more about him: 1, 2 and 3.
This week's reading is from learningenglishvoanews.com, a very interesting webpage for you with lots of resources. Remember you can listen to the news while reading it and there is also some vocabulary at the bottom.
informal conversation we usually report
speech using the introductory verbs say
and tell. In more formal speech and
writing, we use a greater variety of introductory verbs to better reflect the situation and intention of the speaker. These are called reporting verbs and there are different patterns used after them.
1. verb + full infinitive: agree, ask, offer, promise, refuse, threaten He refused to see her.
2. verb + object + full infinitive: tell, advise, ask, beg, invite, order, persuade, remind, warn I told her to come.
My father advised me to get a better job.
3. Verb + gerund:admit, deny, suggest, recommend He denied having been there. They suggested trying the new Chinese restaurant.

know I love exploring new tools and some months ago I read about Tackk. This
tool allows you to publish photos, videos, audios, maps or text. I think you
can create a tack page without signing up, but I am not sure if it is
saved after one week. Therefore you should create your free account and we will
make sure your content is saved. If you want to get familiar with this new
tool, watch the demo video and read the tutorial.
In groups of three or four prepare a presentation project about one of the topics suggested below.The presentation should have a duration of 8/10 minutes, depending on the number of students in the group. You can use any online tool (e-maze, prezi ....), just make sure we will be able to watch it in class. Over the week, tell me the topic you have chosen and the members of the group. You have to send it to me for correction before the 12th of May.
Culture shock is used to describe different reactions ( anxiety, surprise, confusion ....) to spending an extended period of time in a culture very different from your own.Have you ever experienced it?
Let's watch the video "Culture shock for Amazon Chief's son" about a man called Tue Huni Kui, who moved from the jungles of the Amazon to New York.
