WHAT DID YOU DO LAST WEEKEND? DID YOU STAY IN?

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THIS APP? YOU CAN ATTACH YOUR VOICE TO YOUR PHOTOS IN A VERY EASY WAY. AS WE TALKED ABOUT WEEKEND ACTIVITIES, IT COULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO TAKE A PHOTO THIS WEEKEND AND ATTACH A BRIEF DESCRIPTION TO IT IN A WAY THAT YOU CAN MAKE “TALKING PHOTOS” AND YOU PRACTICE YOUR ORAL SKILLS.

DO LOOKS MATTER? (B2.2)

FOREVER YOUNG (B2.2)

WATCH & LISTEN

HOWEVER, OLD PEOPLE ARE WORTH A FORTUNE…..

Old people are rich :
they have silver in their hair,
gold in their teeth,
stones in their kidneys,
steel in their knees,

lead in their feet,
iron in their knuckles,
sugar in their blood,
and gas in their stomach.

GAMIFICATION TO REVIEW CONTENT: “KAHOOT” (B2.2)

a5bc8ebe-f0bb-44cd-bf0c-c12bc44c8260  Kahoot-logo6

WHY  don´t we begin by playing a Kahoot to revise some of the content studied in the previous course?

WHAT IS KAHOOT?

Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform that makes it fun to learn – any subject, in any language, on any device, for all ages!

HOW DO YOU PLAY?

Kahoots are best played in a group setting, like a classroom. Players answer the questions on their own devices (individually or in teams), while games are displayed on a shared screen (the teacher´s) to unite the lesson. It creates a ‘campfire moment’ encouraging players to look up and celebrate together. Besides creating your own kahoots, you can search among millions of existing games.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO?

  • Take your mobile phone or tablet and JOIN at kahoot.it DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE APP
  • Enter the GAME PIN (it changes every time you play the game)
  • Type in your NICKNAME, and then OK, GO!
  • The teacher will START the game and  you´ll see your name on the board
  • Questions will be displayed on his/her board (with a time limit)
  • CLICK on the right answer by clicking on the right colour on  your mobile
