Eighteenth week


Last week we were learning about modal verbs of obligation. We studied the general features of modal verbs and the differences between obligation, necessity lack of obligation and advice. You had to do exercises on page 135 (3A).

If you need more practice, click here.

Taran taught us how to convey our lack of belief with expressions like "It sounds fishy", "It is far fetched", "I found it hard to believe", etc. I hope you can use these expressions from now on.

Paco also told us about "methane makers". It was really interesting! You can read the article here.

Last Thursday we listened to a group of people talking about English manners. Some of them thought they were too polite, but some others thought it wasn't politeness as they did not really meant what they said. What do you think? You can add a comment to convey your opinions.

We also had interesting conversations in groups about etiquette: good and bad manners.

Changing topic, I want to add here the information about the film season on History organised by Centro Cultural Caja Granada. You can take your leaflets in Conserjería or download it here. There will be a film every Tuesday, it is a pity that we are in class at this time, but you can tell your family and friends, as it is free! Let's hope next seasons are not on Tuesdays.

Our classmate Nuria told me about another cinema activity, Retroback. Maybe you are interested in it. It is also a film series on classic cinema in Teatro Isabel la Católica and Cinema 2000. You can find more information here.
