My Perfect Day

This is an interesting question. My perfect day takes place in  late Spring or early Summer,  when the days are longer than usual and you can enjoy long hours outdoor. I like to drive to San Valentino Park in Pordenone, with my younger son Orlando. We reach the playground and while my son is playing I sit outside at the bar and drink a cup of tea or coffee, or  a Hugo drink. Personally I really enjoy reading the newspaper or a book. Even if it is not so easy because I always keep an eye to Orlando.

Anyway, I could think about other perfect days too. This is just one of the many. And what about you?

I know I know, English sometimes seems soooo hard to learn. However, I believe it is your means to get in touch with a lot of people all around the world. And not only.

  1. Why is it so important to learn English in 2017?
  2. What would you suggest to learn it at school without getting bored?
  3. Was English important in your life?

Please answer the a.m. questions and leave your ideas on this PADLET!

See you at school

Mrs. D.

Hi my dear students,

herewith you can find a photo that I kindly ask you to describe. Even if it is a written exercise, remember it is for your oral skills. When we will be back in the classroom , I’d like you to describe it (or another one) orally.

Let’s speak English!

Have a very happy Easter!

Fireworks Lesson Plan – ESL Chemistry in Action

Hello everybody!

what is better than the sharing? Herewith you can find a nice activity (in this case in the form of an English test) to teach English through a CLIL activity about Fireworks. Personally, these activities were intended as a conclusion set of activities because, in the classroom, we have worked a lot on the specific vocabulary and on Chemistry in action thanks to my Chemistry colleague.

Hope it can be useful for you!

Enjoy with your classes.

Mrs Dorigo
