She's having her hair cut


We were working today with my students in 6th course EAS. They were a bit tired so I think it wasn't very clear for them.
English Grammar Secrets has it really clear, so you're going to read the explanations and do the exercises.
As usual you have to capture screens with "ImpPant", paste them in a Word document and send it by e-mail.

Interests and abilities



Click here and play the hangman, try to keep the duck over the river on the bridge, hahaha. 

The words you have to use are  in the unit we're working with in 1st Secondary and 2nd Secondary B, EAS.

Leave me comments about it. Couldn't you discover a word ?


Food Inc




The current method of raw food production is largely a response to the growth of the fast food industry since the 1950s. The production of food overall has more drastically changed since that time than the several thousand years prior. Controlled primarily by a handful of multinational corporations, the global food production business - with an emphasis on the business - has as its unwritten goals production of large quantities of food at low direct inputs (most often subsidized) resulting in enormous profits, which in turn results in greater control of the global supply of food sources within these few companies. Health and safety (of the food itself, of the animals produced themselves, of the workers on the assembly lines, and of the consumers actually eating the food) are often overlooked by the companies, and are often overlooked by government in an effort to provide cheap food regardless of these negative consequences.

We're going to watch the video in class, you can see it again here :http://documentaryaddict.com/Food+Inc-2174-documentary.html

Then in groups of three you're going to work on parts of the video with a written guide and make your own presentation to tell your mates your version of the story.
You can choose one of the topics.The guide is thought for teachers but I'm going to help you to addapt it, don't worry.
http://www.takepart.com/sites/default/files/foodinc_PDF_091008.pdf

After the presentations you'll play a game. Use English, play, enjoy and finally share your ideas about the game and Mc Donald's production of course.

                                                                Mc Donald's game

Adjectives ending in -ing or -ed

My students in 2nd secondary EAS, here we've got extra practice !!
Click here and enjoy. Let me know how you did it.
