The Big Bang Theory TV Series – an OP by Avanzado 2 students

This is part of the Tuesday’s BBT2 OP. It’s an audio file with some typed comments by the teacher – feedback.

The Three Little Pigs, a Project by NB1 students

At the Students’ Corner you will find this lovely end-of-course project by NB1 students in course 2009-10. We hope it’s inspiring! They wrote the play and then they performed in class. They’re on video, so check this link out!: The Three Little Pigs Enjoy!

On Salinger’s “A Perfect Day for Bananafish”

TV Series

Students in the Avanzado 2 courses have spent the last two months working on a project which entailed watching the same episode of a TV series several times, to gather some Useful Language. We’re starting this thread in case any of the students wishes to comment on the experience, and we will also post here the links to the Oral Presentations they prepared on this experience. Post freely and enjoy! 🙂
Here is where we are publishing their work: materials from the OP and links to videos of their work: Speaking & Listening – Students’ Contributions – Students’ Cornet, at the EOI Getafe website.

EOI Getafe student reading Sherman Alexie

Charo kindly volunteered to read out one of her favorite chapters in Alexie’s novel “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian”. She improvised this reading!

World Book and Copyright Day

By establishing April 25th as the international day to celebrate reading and writing, UNESCO is trying to promote reading, publishing and the protection of intellectual property. “The idea for this celebration originated in Catalonia where on 23 April, Saint George’s Day, a rose is traditionally given as a gift for each book sold.”
Check out their website to find out more about this!

Another interesting project promoting reading (and involving not spending much money!) is Book Crossing. Read and release! Check out their website to find out more about them!

Finally, support bookshops in Getafe! Don’t buy your books in great department stores! 🙂

Please, if you read this or have anything to say, post a little comment so we know this thread was interesting or useful for you! 🙂
