Resumen B2 C1 noviembre

Now that are B2 and C1 language and methodology classes are in full swing, we would like to take the opportunity of telling you about some of the activities that we have been doing in the CARLEE over that last two weeks. We have based our sessions around the topic of ‘Money and Consumerism’, coinciding with dates such as Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the run-up to Christmas. Some of the things we have talked about include spending habits, sales, donating to charity, advertising campaigns and the art of complaining. As usual we have used genuine reading and listening texts and have endeavoured to maximize real communication situations, as well as focusing on interesting cultural elements. In our classes we also aim to include useful ICT tools that can be used in bilingual classrooms. This week we have seen how we can use ‘The Green Screen App’ to film advertisements, which we then upload to the educational platform ‘Edmodo’. More information on how to use it here.

Enjoy the bank holiday weekend everyone!

Ahora que las clases de lengua y metodología están en plena marcha, nos gustaría aprovechar la oportunidad para contaros algo sobre las actividades que hemos estado realizando en el CARLEE durante las últimas dos semanas. Hemos basado las sesiones alrededor del tema ‘Dinero y Consumismo’, para coincidir con fechas como ‘Acción de Gracias’, ‘Black Friday’ y los días previos a Navidad. Algunos de los temas de conversación han sido los hábitos de gasto, las rebajas, la donación de dinero a organizaciones benéficas, las campañas de publicidad y el arte de reclamar. Como siempre, hemos utilizado textos reales y nos hemos esforzado en maximizar las situaciones reales de comunicación, además de contemplar los elementos culturales más interesantes. En nuestras clases procuramos hacer uso de las herramientas TIC que son útiles en el aula bilingüe. Está semana hemos visto como podemos usar el ‘The Green Screen App’ para gravar anuncios, que luego subiremos a nuestra plataforma educativa ‘Edmodo’.

¡Feliz puente a todos!
