Chat with a robot

Here is another funny activity.
Have you ever chatted with a robot?

Well, let's try. If you click on the image, you'll go to a programme where a smart lady answers you with audio and written words !!!
To my students from 1º and 2º secundaria. You have to ask her : her name, nationality,where she is from, job, favourite colour, age, where she lives. Then add it to comments with your name.
To my students from 9th : Ask her if she voted for Obama, any experience with "have you ever" ? And answer any questions she asked you. Write a report and add it to comments.
Good luck and get extra points for you second term's marks.
2nd Polimodal:
You're also invited to have fun. Ask the lady what you want and report questions and answers. Write your report in the comments' window. You can work by pairs if you want to.
A hug.

Free Poverty

How much do you know about Geography??? I won't tell your teacher but I'd like you to play and comment about it.
Give me your name and give me your score. I did it quite well, don't you think so?
You can donate water like that game about rice. I don't know if it's true or not. I hope they are really helping , by the way you're practicing Geography.
The site linked here has changed and it has deleted the Geography game, so sorry.
I'll keep it as an interesting experience by the comments of my students.

But you want to play...really? so here you're.

Subservient Chicken

To my students of 2nd secondary B EAS and 2nd secondary Media 3 . Practice commands and have fun

As a matter of fact, if you click on the image you'll get the right page, subservient chicken .com, but the chicken doesn't want to perform our commands any more, you'll see the video and the complete story in a Burger King commercial. In that moment, a few years ago, it was a complete success , I'll keep the post as usual to save your production.
(Click on the image and give commands to the chicken. It will perform them for you !!!
As an example: Kneel, dance, turn the lights off, leave the room. Try another ideas and tell us.)

Have a great laugh , enjoy learning English !!! A hug.
