2º Bachillerato A

May 5th
As I told you this morning, here you have some interesting exercises to IMPROVE YOUR WRITING with the use of CONNECTORS
In case you need them, I also add the PPT for the correction of the sentences we have translated in class using GERUND, TO-INFINITIVE OR ROOT OF THE VERB.
April 27th
At last, here is the exercise about the use of Gerund, to-infinitive or root of the verb (Unit 6 of your book). You have to translate some sentences from Spanish to English. Remember that the structure is not the same in Spanish and in English. That's why it is very important not to think in Spanish and try to translate exactly the structure. You have to know what the structure in English is.

April 16th
To finish the unit about CONDITIONAL CLAUSES I have added some rephrasing using the structure I WISH or IF ONLY. I have also changed the document Conditionals 2 to correct some mistakes and to add some more examples of the 2nd and 3rd type.
Also, here you have a song, WISH YOU WERE HERE by Pink Floyd. And here is some information about the song and the group, PINK FLOYD one of the most famous British bands in history.

Here are the exercises on CONDITIONAL CLAUSES.
The first document, Conditionals 1, is a general review.
I add a second document, Conditionals 2, to have some more new practise.

READING. These are the posters you can see these days on the walls of the corridors. They show some well known British superstitions and are expressed using ZERO CONDITIONALS. Do you know the origin of these superstitions? Click on the link and read about an amazing number of superstitions. There are other links in the section CIENCIA Y PSEUDOCIENCIA.

February 14th
First of all, have a  HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

And now at last a little work about the PASSIVE VOICE. Here you have a lot of REPHRASING for you to practice. It is the Grammar in Unit 6.

February 12th
It's time to learn a little bit more about PHONETICS in order to be ready por the PAEG. The question on Phonetics is COMPULSORY (obligatoria) this year and it represents 1 point in the exam.
So here you have a link to a useful site with a phonetic chart including a lot of exercices which you can practice and correct on the net. It's completely AMAZING! YOU CAN'T MISS IT!
Remember you have to buy the photocopies, too. We will start using them the first day after Carnival.

And I add here the REPHRASING exercices using RELATIVE CLAUSES (unit 4).
Relative clauses 1
Relative clauses 2
I think this weekend the rephrasing on PASSIVE VOICE will be ready, too.

I want you to read and write on holidays because you can't "park" your English until next year. So, you can read about Thanksgiving (we haven't had time to talk about it at school, but remember it is the American festival  celebrated on  the fourth Thursday of November, 26th this year) and also about Christmas. There is a strong connection between both festivities, so it's better to read about them together. Next year, in January, you will have a Reading test about what you've read.
you have to watch the PPTs and answer the questions on the separate file (click here for the questions). Here you have the PPTs:
1. Origin of Thanksgiving
2. Thanksgiving through the history
3. Thanksgiving dishes
4. Side dishes
5. Beverages and desserts
6. Decorations
7. Superstition: the lucky bone
8. Thanksgiving today

2. About CHRISTMAS, you just have to read the Quiz (click here) and find the right answers.
