The salt hotel

It is made of salt, it is like a museum. You can sleep in a bed made of salt bricks, you have the desk made of salt bricks, you have the floor made of salt, everything made of salt! It’s the biggest salt flat in the whole world having a stretch of twelve thousand kilometres. Here’s where everything begins. Chris Hadfield's Space Kitchen.

How to make guacamole

Welcome to Wahaca. Today we’re going to do guacamole, a traditional nibble in Mexico. We’re going to start with the, eh, avocados. To do guacamole we need to choose ripe avocados. Once we touch it, it's a bit soft, we just take the bone out. David Gallo: Underwater astonishments. Sue SNL on Vimeo.

What’s Stopping You From Achieving Your Goals? Groundhog Day 2014: Punxsutawney Phil Sees Shadow. 2012 Fairy Festival with Rockford Dance Company at Womanspace: Maypole Dance. Ten amazing practical jokes. Take a piece of paper, fold it in half, and then tear out a diamond shape.

Ten amazing practical jokes

Unfold the diamond and attach the top of it to some wallpaper. It will appear as if there's a huge rip in the wallpaper. Take a toilet roll. Carefully separate the two pieces of paper and rip off the top sheet. Now carefully fold the top layer back around the roll and the two sheets won't line up, making the roll almost impossible to use. Secretly place a currant or raisin in your hand. Take a sticky note and carefully cut out a small rectangle. When someone calls you on your mobile or cell phone, pretend to be your answerphone: 'Hi, you're through to Richard. If you're in a fast food restaurant and your friend orders a drink, wait until they go to the toilet, then remove the straw, open a bag of ketchup, place the end of the straw into the ketchup and the whole lot back into their drink. Dip your fingers in some water and then stand behind someone and fake a sneeze. For this, you'll need some white thread.

Jeopardy! 4/10/14 NEW EPISODE.


Move Eat Learn. You’ve got to have a dream: a free downloadable lesson. A free downloadable lesson, based around a Russian advertising video for shampoo.

You’ve got to have a dream: a free downloadable lesson

Despite what is aims to sell, the video is actually quite inspiring, with the story of a girl who succeeds against the odds through pure grit and determination. Students start by watching the video and trying to guess what it is trying to advertise (so don’t tell them!). They then try to reconstruct the story in pairs, watching the video again to check their ideas. The lesson then goes on to focus on a range of linkers used to give reasons or results, make contrasts and show when something happened. Students then work with some vocabulary to describe personality, and then put it all together by writing the story of the video, using the linkers and the vocabulary where appropriate. The lesson would be suitable from B1 upwards.
