GENKI ENGLISH

20160927182228-genkienglishge2.png

British Council press release:

"The Genki approach to learning English works by engaging all of the learners’ senses and appealing to a wide range of learning styles. Children are engaged visually through the simple but striking graphics, aurally/orally through the simple chants and songs and limited amounts of graded vocabulary input and kinaesthetically through the actions and games. Because all of the learning tasks are organised as game-like activities, children are immediately motivated to take part.”

"Where's the Love?" - The Black Eyed Peas

  • You will hear a song by the famous group “The Black Eyed Peas”. Read the title. What do you think it’s going to be about?

  • Now, you’re going to have to complete the song in different ways. Take a minute to see if you understand what you are asked to do in each part of the song.

Where’s the Love?

Complete with the missing words

What's................ with the world, mama
People livin' like they .........................

I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you .........................

And that's exactly how ...................................
works and operates
Nigga, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and ........................................

Let your soul...................................

Rearrange the lines and put them in the correct order
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
People killin', people dyin'
Father, Father, Father help us
And would you turn the other cheek
Can you practice what you preach
Send us some guidance from above
Where is the love (Love)
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (The love)

Put these words in the blank spaces

If you never know truth then you never know love
Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know)

Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in
equality / equanimity
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of

That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no
wonder / wander why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my
faith / fate alive till love is found

Now sing along!
People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'

FIFTY ENGLISH-SPANISH FALSE FRIEND WORDS

20160919102918-indice.jpeg

Learning English for Spanish speakers can seem quite simple at first because as much as 40% of English words have cognates in Spanish. Cognates are words that sound similar, have similar spelling and have the same meaning in the two languages. Examples of cognates are: teléfono-telephone; persona- person; invitar-invite.  However, there are many words called FALSE COGNATES or FALSE FRIENDS. In the case of False Friends, the English word sounds like a word in Spanish but the two words do NOT have the same meaning

Why Finland has the best education (by Michael Moore)

El exito educativo de Finlandia Michael Moore from ateo666666 on Vimeo.

Here’s a puzzle. Finnish children spend comparatively little time at school, don’t get homework and yet receive one of the best educations in the world. Curious? Watch how the Finns did it in this clip from Michael Moore’s compelling documentary film ’Where To Invade Next?’
