English Mania

Hello everybody,

I hope you all had a wonderful summer and are coming back with renewed energy for the new academic year.

I will periodically post items of interest and new activities to help you  improve your language skills, so whatever your  level of English, I encourage you to keep working and visiting the blog.

More and more people are studying English every year. Is it a virus? Is it  a mania?  Why do Chinese people study English?

Watch the video and choose the correct answer.

    Hi Anna! I have done this listening and I think that it’s easy to understand. A good way to start this course!
    If I want to send you my results, what do I have to write in Teacher Code and Class ID gaps?

    Thank you. See you soon.

    When I’ve finished the listening I’ve immediatelly thought: Chinese students have luck to be able to study English because they start learning this language sice they are very young.

    I think we have a bad Education system here in Spain about how to learn good English. In my opinion, this is one of the reasons why we are trying to learn more 🙂

    See you tomorrow!

    Well, I think that education in english is much better today. Kids are learning songs in english in public school, i’ve heard. May be in some private education they’re learning chinese in third grade of EGB.

    The listening was easy, I’ve got the same perception.
    See you in class in 1 hour.

    hahaha <— the same in catalan, not in spanish (jajaja)
