domesticviolenceFrom 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

The date of 25th November was chosen to commemorate the Mirabal sisters, three political activists from the Dominican Republic, who were brutally assassinated in 1960 during the Rafael Trujillo dictatorship (1930-1961).

This year, the Carlota Remfry Language School  has run its first Photography Contest to commemorate this day.  Here you are a video with all the pictures of the students who have participated. Thanks a lot!

Hola a todos/as:

Como os informé en clase, en las próximas semanas habrá un simulacro de incendio. Las instrucciones básicas ya las sabéis. No obstante, dejo una imagen que resume dichas instrucciones.

simulacroincendio

Recordad, que en lugar de un papel habrá que dejar la papelera fuera, lo cual indicará que el aula está vacía. De esa tarea se encargará la delegada del grupo, Achy Orcera.

De asistir a Manuel Escribano, que está convalenciente, se encargarán Cati Martínez y José Morales que se sientan normalmente al lado de este alumno.

Yo como tutora del grupo me encargaré de bajar la persiana que está al lado de mi mesa y el alumno/a que esté más cerca de las otras dos ventanas de la clase se encargará de bajarlas.

Muy importante, bajaremos pegados a la baranda detrás del grupo del aula 203 hasta llegar a la planta baja, donde pegados al mostrador de conserjería, máquina beber agua, y pared del lienzo bandera inglesa  y siguiendo las indicaciones del coordinador de la planta baja, iremos al punto de encuentro, que se encuentra al final del pasillo cuando atravesemos la puerta que da acceso a una explanada.

Cualquier duda, preguntadme.

Pilar

Resultado de imagen para speaking When we need to prepare and deliver a monologue, we don´t sometimes know how to proceed. Why don´t we listen to other people delivering monologues to have a clear idea of what to do?

Here you are a link where you will be able to listen to a student delivering a B1 monologue about FOOD/EATING HABITS/MEALS

TASK: In order to take advantage of this resource, I would like to propose you the following activity. Listen to the monologue carefully and try to pay attention to the following aspects: appropiacy, performance time, use of connectors, coherence, grammar, vocabulary and any other aspect you consider to be important. Can you leave me comments on this student´s performance?

Please, try to collaborate as this activity can help you know what the board expects of you in a monologue.

I will give you more links with other performances so that you can have a wide variety of monologues in order to know what to do, what to improve, what to avoid, etc.
