This blog is for English teachers who want to know what the Web2.0 is and discover some of the tools available in this new web.

The objectives of the course are to:

    * discover the Web2.0 and  its tools

    * present some of the Web2.0 tools (blog, photo, podcast, video, presentation,…)

    * explore the use of theWeb2.0 tools for English classes

    * create activities using the Web2.0 tools


The idea is that all the theachers involved keep on giving form to the blog, using in this way and interacting they make a learning functional of the web2.0 and its tools. After, in groups, they will create activities using the Web2.0 tools for English classes.

 La idea és que tots els participants al curs vagin donant forma al bloc, d’aquesta manera utilitzant i interactuant aquest coneguin i a la vegada facin un aprenentatge funcional del web 2.0 i de les seves eines. Un cop conegut el bloc i les eines, en grups es buscaran activitats per utilizar les eines del web2.0 a la classe d’anglès.

Let’s talk about adolescence

In this activity we’ll listen and watch the videos of a song in English, Welcome to My Life by Simple Plan and a version a Catalan group, Lax’n Busto wrote of it, Viu la Vida amb Mi.

We’ve already checked on the translation of the original lyrics and what we’re going to do now is talk about the differences of meaning between the two songs (English and Catalan).

Simple Plan: Welcome to my Life

Lax’n Busto: Viu la Vida amb Mi

How do the two songs deal with the topic of adolescence?
Do you ever feel like the man in the song?

Now, let’s watch another video dealing with adolescence and another main trait of this stage, that of judging people because of their look, of letting others influence the way you act.

Avril Lavigne’s Sk8er Boy

There’s even another song by Queen that can be analyzed under the light of adolescence, I Want It All. Let’s take a look at the video and the lyrics and anilize in what sense the feelings described in the song can be shared by teenagers.

Let’s practise the use of MODALS.

Here we have some links to pages where we van have extra information and exercises on the use of modals.
