Conditionals

Last Academic Year I posted the ‘Real English’ lesson on conditionals . If you want to watch the videoclip and do the exercises again, type ‘conditionals’ into the search engine in order to find them.

I’m posting a ppt on conditionals, thanks to an English teacher who has kindly shared his presentation. Thank you very much.

You will also find a clear summary of conditional forms on English Page.

I hope you enjoy the sites and find everything useful.

Environment

‘An Inconvenient Truth’ is the name of a movie by former U.S. vice president Al Gore. The movie is a presentation about climate change and its effects. The purpose of the movie is to inform the people of the world, and especially the U.S., that global warming is real and caused by humans.  It also shows how we can change global warming. Watch the movie trailer with English subtitles and give your opinion about the following questions :

  • What are some ways that you can reduce pollution in this country?
  • What can you do to help prevent pollution?
  • What can you do to make this world a better place?
  • Which is more important, increasing people’s standard of living, or protecting the environment?

Interesting Stories is a collection of interactive stories that focus on the intersection of human health and the environment.
These stories are based on real-life problems that involve the effect of our environment on our health.

Throughout the story, you will encounter information that explores the science behind the key health questions in the story. Analyze this information and then use it to answer the open-ended question that completes each story.

What’s the weather like?

I promised I would post new activities during this week while you are taking the oral exam.

Since we are going to talk about the weather, I am posting a listening comprehension task on this topic.

  • Before you start watching the video, take a piece of paper to take notes.
  • First you will see the regular version, then the version with Closed Captions (English subtitles).
  • Watch the video clip and write down the names of the people interviewed and the adjectives they use to describe the weather.
  • Watch the regular version as many times as necessary before you check your answers.
