Welcome to class

Hi everybody, 

My name is Anna and I will be teaching Intermediate level during this academic year.You are most welcome to use the activities on this blog which I hope you  find useful and interesting.

This is the first post I’m sending you to talk about a site to improve your listening, reading, vocabulary and pronunciation skills.  I’m talking about  Read the Words, a free website where you can paste your texts and listen to them.

You only need to create an account for free, find a text you want to read and cut and paste it into the Read the words website.

You can actually listen to the text you have just read, so you can hear what it sounds like.

April’s Fool Day

Hello everybody!

Last Tuesday, it was April’s Fool Day, a day when people usually play tricks on friends and strangers alike. It is similar to our celebration on December 28th, the day of the Holy Innocents. If you want to know more about this celebration and the reason why it takes place on April 1st, click here and read the story provided by the British Council. There is also a Reading Comprehension test and further reading and writing.

Reading Comprehension

Hello everybody. I haven’t posted any messages for a while, so I thought I could send you a link to practice you reading skills. Some of the words of the text are underlined, so that you can click on them and check the meaning in the online dictionary. You can even choose the translation into Spanish. I hope you find it useful.
