My last holidays: Spain 2009

Welcome AMEP-B students to our class blog!

Yesterday we were talking about our last holidays. As you know, mine were in Spain. Today I want you to find out more about it.
  • Look at this scrapbook of some of my winter holiday in Spain. Write down some questions about any of the pictures and I'll answer them for you. When you have the answers you can write down a recount (a story in the past) of my Spanish Winter Holiday. Show it to me before publishing it in the comments below.
Later on you can make your own photo album and write about your own holidays!

Go to Time4English (on the right hand sidebar, ask me for the user name & password) and do the listening exercise on Level 4- Lower Intermediate 2H about a Mexican Holiday. It will give you more ideas on how to have a conversation about your holidays.
  • Now have a look at the maps in this voicethread. Read and listen to the comments other people have left there. Then join it (it's very easy and quick and I can help you if you get into trouble) and write or leave a recorded message about yourself on the second map.

    Rosa went to Spain on her holiday. She took some pictures and I saw them. There is a snow mountain range called the Pyrenees, which separate Spain and France. In Spain some of the buildings are similar to India. Rosa visited some villages.

    I love your blogs. I look at them regularly. Please visit my class wiki for this year
    We would love to have some "pen pals" in the city - or would you call it "keyboard pals"???
    Please email me and we can work out a way to do it.
