    New Zealand friends

    You can listen to the podcasts & quizzes you prepared for our New zealand friends. They are all in a special post for them, Exchange with New Zealand.

      • William, their teacher has told me they have three weeks' holiday, but that you can look at their blogs in William's Class Blog. Five of their blogs are active. Visit them and write to them in comments.

      • Spain has decided to ban models that are too thin. Read about it in the Sydney Morning Herald and the abc7news. Write your opinion in our forum. Read everyone's opinion.
      • Answer theses questions and then write an article in your blog, including your opinion:
      1. What triggered the ban?
      2. What's BMI?
      3. What BMI should a model have to be allowed to participate in fashion parades in Spain?
      4. What's the average height, weight and BMI of a runway model?
      5. What are the arguments for and against?
      6. Check the meanings of gaunt, emaciated and wan. You can find many dictionalries on the internet (just wirte dictionary into Google). One of them is the Merrian-Webster
      7. How can you calculate someone's BMI?
      • I wrote a worksheet with information on how to upload digital stories onto an internet host in order to publish them onto your blogs. I hope it helps you and you are able to do it from home. Most of these sites are banned from TAFE.
      • Melinda Gleeson has re-published her page on Computer Health and the Quiz. I'll leave a permanent link on the sidebar. Do it now and remember to do the exercises regularly if you work at the computer for long periods of time.
      • Let's do the new work for Approches to Learning.
