Australia Day | Focus on Mrs Jones Den 26e januari är det dags för Australia Day och självklart är detta en dag att uppmärksamma! Här är ett roligt klipp om vikten av att lägga rätt kött på grillen på Australia Day. Bra ingång för ett samtal kring hur traditioner kan spela stor roll. The barbie är tveklöst en av höjdpunkterna på Australia Day. Hur är det med våra mattraditioner?

Lektionstips Engelska: An American in Sweden För ett antal år sedan sprang jag på en blogg av den roligare sorten. 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 har använt de här övningarna i många grupper och de lockar alltid fram skratt. Enjoy!
