PUPPETS IN ENGLISH





Yesterday, students of 1st ESO worked and had fun with puppets. They learnt how to make them themselves and they even built the setting and made up the dialogues. If you want to see more pictures, have a look at http://www.colegiosantoangel.net/galeria.php
I hope we can upload the video soon so that we can all enjoy our students' work.

British and American English

3rd ESO students have just seen some differences in vocabulary between the two most common varieties of English:  British and American.
My students always ask me what variety of English they learn. In this school, as in most schools in Galicia and Spain, the most studied variety is British English. However, thanks to TV, new technologies and social networks, teenagers have got very acquainted with American English. Thus, they usually speak of high school, movies, cookies, or soccer
What I'm posting today is a short list of some different words that British and North-American use to refer to the same things.
