Guts annonce Philantropiques, un nouvel album dans la lignée de sa série Beach Diggin' Comme pour ses 4 albums précédents, Philantropiques sortira sur le label Heavenly Sweetness, le 29 mars prochain. Guts s’est d’abord imposé comme beatmaker pillier de la scène hip-hop française en taillant la bande-son d’Alliance Ethnik, de Big Red ou des Svinkels, avant de se lancer en solo sous le nom de Guts avec son premier album « Le Bienheureux » sorti en 2007. Porté par une volonté constante de se renouveler, il s’entoure aujourd’hui d’un nouveau live band. Irrémédiablement attiré par les vibrations du monde, c’est principalement sur celles de l’Afrique et des Caraïbes qu’il s’attarde dans son dernier effort. Un virage qu’il nous présente avec « Mucagiami » un premier extrait d’inspiration angolaise, une semba à l’orchestration percussive et cuivrée dans laquelle s’exprime le chanteur oublié Manuel Rosário das Neves alias Vum Vum. Philantropiques est un album résolument afro-tropical où se rencontrent le jazz et le carimbó.

The 50 Greatest Living Geniuses When we think of genius, what springs to mind? Is it the clichéd image of a man in a lab coat grimacing over beakers and test tubes? Is it the portrait of an artist who plumbs the depths of human expression while shattering boundaries in her chosen medium? Is it the notion of an accidental prodigy, a social misfit with a spectacular, unparalleled, and uncontainable talent? 33 ways to speak better English If you’re reading this, I imagine you want to speak better English and communicate in a more confident and competent way. When we communicate effectively we are able to express our ideas and opinions, share experiences, and build relationships with others. When we struggle to express ourselves, we feel unvalued and insecure. As human beings, we want to participate in group discussions and have an impact on the society around us. In the modern world, we communicate across borders. English is the closest thing we have to an international language.

Enliven Class Discussions With Gallery Walks Students routinely talking with each other should be a staple in classrooms. We know this as teachers. Social development theory (and I’m sure plenty of your own observational data) backs up the benefits of it. Regardless of age, we know students need time with their peers to share, discuss, grab new ideas, build on ones they already have, and reflect. They can do this in pairs or triads, and it only takes a few minutes. By making sure you use variety in your pronunciation lessons, your students will be more successful with English pronunciation and gain the confidence that comes with it. 1Listen and repeatThis will be the first and most common method of teaching sound specific pronunciation in English. You say the target sound and have your students repeat it after you. If you are teaching a long word with multiple syllables, start with the final syllable of the word and have your class repeat it. Then add the penultimate syllable and say the two together having your class repeat after you. Work backwards in this manner until your students are able to pronounce the entire word correctly.2IsolationWhen working on a specific sound, it may help your students to isolate that particular sound from any others.
