Tea party

During this week my students in year 7 have been treated to a British tea party - or at least my version of it... It has been a lot of fun and when the students got to summarize the happening with one word each, words like "awesome", "good", "fun" and "nice" came up. Well, I guess no one says no to a brew and a cucumber sandwich!!! We have learned about the UK for a few weeks now in year 7 and it was time to show the students what a casual British afternoon could be like, meeting up for tea. From the beginning the students were given the instructions: "we speak English, and nothing but English for the coming hour", "take a note with a task description", "cooperate with each other", and just "have a jolly good time"! * butter the sandwiches * set the table with cups, spoons, napkins * slice the cucumber with a cheese slicer * cut the sandwiches into triangles * find "Rule Britannia" on YouTube and set up the computer with the projector * boil water Paolo wearing my British fun hat!

För ett antal år sedan sprang jag på en blogg av den roligare sorten.

Lektionstips Engelska: An American in Sweden

Det var en amerikan som bodde i Sverige och bloggade om sina upplevelser. Språket är verkligen autentiskt och väldigt informellt, vilket gör texten väldigt lätt att ta till sig. Jag kontaktade bloggaren och bad att få använda hans texter i undervisningen, vilket han gärna lät mig göra. Jag valde ut de avsnitt där han beskrev möten med svensk mat, som nyponsoppa, flädersaft, blodpudding och Djungelvrål. Jag skapade frågor till texterna som syftar till att både förstå innehållet och förstå vissa språkliga finurligheter. Jag har använt de här övningarna i många grupper och de lockar alltid fram skratt.
