Short stories

Read and listen to the three stories that you can access by clicking on the picture below. After the holidays you will have to explain what story is your favourite, what characters you like the most/least, how difficult it was to read/understand them…

I hope you enjoy them.


Organ shortage crisis

I have found a lot of information online about xenotransplants and 3D printing. I shared some in class with you, but it’s impossible to go through all the activities. I leave some of them here so that you can do them on your own.

If, apart from watching the TED videos, you want to do the activities, you need to register (with just an email address and password, you’ll be done).

  1. TED video activity on how to print human tissue.

2. TED video activity on  how to print a human kidney.

3. TED talk: the future of organ transplantation

C1 Christmas calendar

It’s time to enjoy and relax, but also to practise English in a more informal way. Enjoy the holidays as much as you can and remember to come back on the 10th of January.
I hope you find the activities below entertaining. There’s one for each day. Don’t do them all on the same day. Remember: learning a language is not a sprint, but a marathon.

B2 Christmas calendar

I’m sure you can find some time in between meals to practise your English. Time cannot be an excuse because, unfortunately, we’d better not travel or meet friends and family, so you’ll certainly find a moment to sit down and turn on your computer. Activities are not an excuse, either, you can find them below: one for each day. Warning: don’t do them all on the same day, learning a language is not a sprint but a marathon.

Durian fruit

Every now and then we hear about this or that new food and I what I bring here is one nobody in my class has ever heard about (neither have I): durian fruit.

Watch the video by clicking on the picture and find out about it.
