HOW FAR IS FROM VALENCIA TO NEW YORK? 6.048 km
HOW CAN YOU COMPARE THESE TWO CITIES?
THINK ABOUT THE SCENERY, THE WEATHER, THE PEOPLE, THE COST OF LIVING, THE LIFESTYLE, THE CUSTOMS, POLLUTION, CARS AND TRAFFIC, TRANSPORT, SHOPPING, FESTIVALS, GENERAL ATMOSPHERE…..
USE WORDS SUCH AS….

With the rise of social media, more and more teachers engage their students online with projects and assignments. Increasingly, I have seen fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter where students are posting on behalf of a literary character or historical figure.
Thanks to ClassTools, you can engage your students in the creation of fake Facebook profiles & BIOGRAPHIES without actually using the social media.
ClassTools has developed a program called Fakebook that allows users to easily and quickly create fake Facebook profiles & biographies. It is simple, free, and easy-to-use! Simply plug in information, pictures, friends, and biography data, and then publish with the click of a button. You can also embed the profile into any webpage and download it for offline sharing.
For more information take a look at these great examples, and check out the screenshot below of an example Fakebook profile for Brigham Young:
How might we use this in the classroom, you ask? Have students create “Fakebook” profiles and biographies of someone they know who is still alive . (TASK on page 115/ 125-150 WORDS))
Happy faking, y’all!

U2 announces a second concert in Madrid, after exhausting the tickets
The Irish Band will act on September 20th and 21st in the capital for the first time in 13 years
U2 fans have been fast. Just out, this Friday, tickets for next concert of the group at WiZink Center in Madrid, have exhausted. That’s why the band has announced that it will offer a new date in the city. After performance scheduled for September 20, the group led by Bono will give a second concert on day 21, as confirmed by promoters Doctor Music and Live Nation. Tickets will be on sale next February 2nd.
II TOOK JUST MINUTES FOR U2´S TICKETS TO BE SOLD OUT LAST FRIDAY, BUT FANS WITH DEEP POCKETS CAN STILL PICK THEM UP AS TICKETS WERE BEING RESOLD IMMEDIATELY… TOUTS WERE OFFERING THEM AT SKY-HIGH PRICES. MANY MUSICIANS AND CONSUMERS ARE IN FAVOUR OF A LAW BANNING TOUTING. THE BILL WOULD MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO SELL TICKETS FOR MAJOR SPORTING, MUSICAL OR THEATRICAL EVENTS FOR OVER THEIR FACE VALUE TO PROTECT CONSUMERS. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
WELL, YOU CAN ENJOY U2 AND THE PRESENT PERFECT FOR THE TIME BEING….

I (8) ________________hardened lips.
Felt the healing fingertips.
It burned like fire–
this burning desire.
I (9) ________________with the tongue of angels.
I (10) ________________the hand of a devil,
It was warm in the night.
I was cold as a stone.
But I still (11) ________________what I’m looking for.
But I still (12) ________________what I’m looking for.
I believe in the kingdom come,
then all the colors will bleed into one,
bleed into one.
Well, yes I’m still running.
You broke the bonds
and you loosed the chains,
carried the cross
of my shame,
of my shame.
You know I believed it.
But I still (13) ________________ what I’m looking for.
But I still (14) ________________ what I’m looking for.
But I still (15) ________________ what I’m looking for.
