WARNING ABOUT YOUR MARKS (B1.2 B2.2)

animated-warning-image-0016

Hi there

Aunque yo he comunicado PERSONALMENTE  a cada uno de mis alumnos sus notas finales de MAYO o de la convocatoria extraordinaria de JUNIO, todos podréis VER vuestras notas a partir del día 26 de junio online. Sin embargo y para que nadie se sorprenda o asuste, me han comunicado que los alumnos que tendrían que aprobar con cuatro notas de 5 (según la resolución extraordinaria de la Consellería  del 4 de mayo respecto a la situación Covid 19)  aparecerán como NO APTOS en la nota global de las ACTAS; esto es así porque el sistema (Itaca) no está preparado para hacer esa promoción especial y solo identifica como apto el 6. Las notas por destrezas serán las finales pero la global NO estará actualizada hasta el día 7 de julio, ya que será la secretaría quien haga esa PROMOCIÓN  EXTRAORDINARIA uno a uno y manualmente desde el centro. Espero  haberme explicado. Se os informará  de esto en la web pero RECORDAD  que la nota global no está actualizada y por eso aparecen como no aptos pero que a partir del 7 de julio ya aparecerán como Aptos si han tenido al menos cuatro notas (destrezas)  con 5 .

ENJOY YOUR SUMMER

AS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT PHRASAL VERBS IN THE FORMER POST, WHAT´S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUT OFF AND CALL OFF?

I THINK THIS IS A MEMORABLE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN THE SUBTLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO PHRASAL VERBS BY HEART

If you put something off you postpone it.

If you call something off you cancel it

ARE THEY SEPARABLE OR INSEPARABLE PHRASAL VERBS?

HOW DO YOU KNOW? HOW CAN YOU FIND OUT?

HOUSING (B1.2)

MEDIATION (ALL LEVELS)

advantages-of-mediation-825x510

MEDIATION

“Mediation” is the latest ELT buzzword. You might not know that from this year on you will have to add a new competence (or skill, as they prefer to call it now) to the ones you are already skilled at, I mean, LISTENING, READING, WRITING and SPEAKING. This new skill is MEDIATION.  But what is “Mediation”?
Linguistic mediation is a type of interaction that takes place among people that are unable to communicate, when speakers do not speak the same language, or when speakers do speak the same language, but one of them has wider or more specific knowledge of the common language. According to this differentiation, mediation tasks can be bilingual (cross-linguistic or interlinguistic mediation)or monolingual (intralinguistic mediation) , which is the one that will be applied in the Valencian Community Certificate exams.
The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) states that linguistic mediation activities take up an important place in our societies, and describes mediation activities as either oral or written, specifying different tasks that can be developed as mediation practice, such as translation, interpretation, paraphrasing, summarizing and note-taking (CEFR 2002: 14-15).
I do not think it is as new as they want to make you think, that’s only to scare you away. You have been mediating all your life, at home with your parents and your children, when you go out with your friends and also in the EOI when
  • you are told to do those exercises in which you have to read something and tell your partners what you have read in your own words (written / oral)
  • you interview a new partner to get to know him/ her and then you have to introduce him /her to the rest of the class (oral / oral)
  • book or film reviews are wanted, etc.. etc…
Maybe the only difference between what you did in the past and what you have to do now is that it will be assessed separately and not as an integrated skill (oral / written)
