Looking for PENFRIENDS!
Hello dear colleagues!
It s been a lot since I wrote in this website last, I was concentrated on my two little boys! :)
Now that I m back to work, I m looking for some penfriends for my Italian 5th graders. They are 20, but I have other colleagues interested in the project: there are 48 pupils in a school and 15 in other one.
If you are (seriously) interested, please contact me... THANKS!!

You could also try working with songs (work especially on rhymes) or use tongue twisters.

Song for the passive voice
Please can you suggest a song to be used in the passive voice? The ages of my students are 12-14. Maybe could be a song in which they can change from the active to the passive  or vice versa.
Thanks in advance  
PD. Running out of ideas :(

The "AP" in secondary schools
Dear French Colleagues
Do you do what we call " AP" in our French schools ? What do you do ? Could you share some ideas or other documents, except the official ones ? I m just becoming crazy with that !!!! 
Thanks so much
Have a nice day

It s not necessary to drive you crazy with that. Just do what you ve always been doing: Help your pupils when they need it.

In my school AP is included in the lessons so we rather do methodology like How to learn a lesson? / to use a dictionary?/ Understand instructions etc........

Any time I start working on a compétence I give them some tips to improve it.

sport vs sporting
Good evening dear colleagues!
Could you help me, please. I am a bit puzzled with these two words. Which is correct: sport events or sporting events? Maybe they both mean the same? 
Thank you
Best regards:) 

22 Sep 2016


Hi sadbird
Both are ok
I did a quick google and I found sport events, sports events and sporting events.
Sporting events sounds more formal and is preferred for written forms.  Sport (UK) / sports (US) events is fine for everyday conversation.
Hope this helps.

Eggbert, while eggcitedly peddling down Eggwardian Street, is eggstatic and hoping that his recently hatched eggzemplary eggsperiment of putting all his eggs in one basket, all so he can have an eggstravagant lunch with Meggan (whom, BTW, he begged and begged, after "illeggally" poaching her from Deggster), will not eggsplode resulting in a fry-day on that very Friday, and lots of egg on his face. Eggbert, it boils down to one thing - its a cracking big whisk youre taking!
