Radio Script

Last week we were working on the script of a radio programme that will be broadcast and directed by the Music teacher Antonio Manuel Gallego. We have been reading the script aloud to improve your intonation and pronunciation. But I'm sure you have learned some more things. Can you give examples? Post your answers.

Thank you very much for your participation in the casting this morning. Vicki, Irene, Victoria, Carmen, Esteban and José Manuel. All of you did a good job and can be very good speakers in the future.

Día de la Paz

La poesía también puede ser un estupendo vehículo para transmitir nuestras inquietudes y esperanzas, nuestros deseos de saltar fronteras (incluídas las lingüísticas) y construir puentes que nos acerquen. Este es nuestro mensaje:

Our house, in the middle of our street

As I promised, here are some pictures of my house in Wheaton, Illinois. It's not as big as the ones we looked at today in class!

This is my house. We have a garage and a garden.

This is my bedroom. I have got a big bed, a desk, a dresser and a closet. But I have a lot of clothes and not enough space for them!

This room is where we watch TV, the living room.

I share this bathroom with my sister. It's ugly!

The kitchen is always busy because my parents like to cook. Morgan spends a lot of time looking for treats here!
Is your home similar or different to mine? What have you got in your room? What's your favorite part of your house? I'll be reading your comments and discussing them with you next week in English class.
