By some estimates, over half of all words adopted into English from Latin have changed their meaning in some way over time, often drastically. For example, smart originally meant sharp, cutting or painful; handsome merely meant easily-handled (and was generally derogatory); bully originally meant darling or sweetheart; sad meant full, satiated or satisfied; and insult meant to boast, brag or triumph in an insolent way. A more modern example is the changing meaning of gay from merry to homosexual (and, in some circles in more recent years, to stupid or bad). Some words have changed their meanings many times. Some words have become much more specific than their original meanings. Some words came to mean almost the complete opposite of their original meanings.

What makes 'Black Panther' so special? Hello, everyone, and welcome back to another video for the British Council’s LearnEnglish Teens website and their YouTube channel. I’m so excited to be making this video today about the Black Panther film which recently came out. For those of you who do not know what the film’s about or maybe haven’t seen it yet, it basically follows the story of the Marvel comic, the ‘Black Panther’, where our Wakandan king, T'Challa, is both the superhero and the king of the movie. He possesses the power of the black panther. As with every superhero film, our hero for this film, T’Challa, has to fight off the evil guys who are basically trying to disrupt and destroy the world, creating these mass weapons out of a special metal called vibranium, which is only found in Wakanda. Wakanda itself is a fictional African country but it is, in many ways, very real as well. As well as celebrating black people, as I said, this film also celebrates Africa.

Assess Student Project Work Techniques to evaluate progress and ensure success Project work challenges students to think beyond the boundaries of the classroom, helping them develop the skills, behaviors, and confidence necessary for success in the 21st-century. Designing learning environments that help students question, analyze, evaluate, and extrapolate their plans, conclusions, and ideas, leading them to higher–order thinking, requires feedback and evaluation that goes beyond a letter or number grade. The term “authentic assessment” is used to describe assessment that evaluates content knowledge as well as additional skills like creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and innovation. Authentic assessment documents the learning that occurs during the project-building process and considers the real-world skills of collaboration, problem solving, decision making, and communication. Developing Assessment As you design the project, it is helpful to begin with the end in mind. Questions for Students Conclusion

Music A painting on an Ancient Greek vase shows a music lesson (about 510 BC) Music is a form of art; an expression of emotions through harmonic frequencies. Music is also a form of entertainment that puts sounds together in a way that people like, find interesting or dance to. Most music includes people singing with their voices or playing musical instruments, such as the piano, guitar, drums or violin. The word music comes from the Greek word (mousike), which means "(art) of the Muses".

Listen A Minute: Easier English Listening and Lesson Plans Telescopic Text JPLAY | hi-end audio player for Windows Compréhension de l’oral en anglais Il est difficile d'établir une forme de chronologie dans la mise en œuvre des processus mentaux, compte tenu de leur interaction. Cependant, au vu des recherches menées dans l'apprentissage des langues vivantes, on peut proposer une procédure que l'élève reproduira. Phase 1 : mise en situation Repérer les éléments situationnels (les bruitages, par exemple) Il s'agit de mobiliser les connaissances préalables de l'élève pour lui faire émettre des hypothèses de forme ou de contenu. Phase 2 : observation de la langue Repérer les éléments suprasegmentaux (le nombre de voix, l'accent des locuteurs, le type de discours, les schémas intonatifs, les accents de phrase) L'élève doit apprendre à gérer la compréhension de l'oral à partir de ce qu'il connaît et reconnaît. Repérer les éléments lexicaux Repérer les éléments syntaxiques (les structures, le temps des verbes, les aspects, les pronoms personnels, les pronoms interrogatifs, etc.) Phase 3 : mise en relation des éléments reconnus auprès de l'élève.
