    Welcome back!!

    I hope you all had a great break. Mine was fantastic, lots of resting, catching up with friends and family and only a tiny bit of blogging.

    Welcome to our two new classmates, Yuki and Becky. We'll set up their blogs today, so say hello to them.

    As nobody seems to have guessed the picture from the last post, I've put this one to help you. Write your guess in comments.

    • Go to our previous post, Dublin ESL students exchange and do the activities mentioned there. Some of them have left questions and comments in your blogs. Please read them and answer them.
    • Peter Sheekey, the teacher from Dublin, has prepared a text on Dublin. Listen to Peter's dictation and write down everything you hear.
    • I know it's Tuesday today, but have you heard of Mondayitis? Find out about it in Time4English, This Week's story.
    • This afternoon we'll start interpreting the Health Surveys you did before the holidays. We will need to do some graphs to present the results of the surveys. So let's look at some models. Go to Time4English, last level : Business and Academic and read 3D Describe a Graph 1 & 3E Describe a Graph 2. Don't write the essays, just do the exercises and write a summary of each graph.
    • Some of you should remind me to show you how to send email attachments and need to give me your new blog URL.
    • Please show me your internet bookmarks/favourites. You should have 2 folders: English & another of your choice (music, travel, etc). Each folder should have at least 3 favourite sites.
    • Catch up with any work outstanding. We haven't got many weeks before the end of the year and there is so much to do! One of the things I sent you for the holidays was the assessment task Exploring the Internet. Please send me the answers as an attachment.

    Hi, Rosa
    I think that the picture represents a part of fish, but I don't know the name of the fish.
    If it isn't a fish then maybe is some sea animal.
