This answer is a bit of a mouthful. It’s the day before yesterday, yesterday, today, tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow. 6. 7. 8. A Brief History of the English Language The English language belongs to the West Germanic branch of the Indo-European family of languages. The closest undoubted living relatives of English are Scots and Frisian. Frisian is a language spoken by approximately half a million people in the Dutch province of Friesland, in nearby areas of Germany, and on a few islands in the North Sea. The history of the English language has traditionally been divided into three main periods: Old English (450-1100 AD), Middle English (1100-circa 1500 AD) and Modern English (since 1500). Old English (450 - 1100 AD): During the 5th Century AD three Germanic tribes (Saxons, Angles, and Jutes) came to the British Isles from various parts of northwest Germany as well as Denmark. Through the years, the Saxons, Angles and Jutes mixed their different Germanic dialects. Before the Saxons the language spoken in what is now England was a mixture of Latin and various Celtic languages which were spoken before the Romans came to Britain (54-5BC).

Outils numériques et classe inversée en langues vivantes au collège La classe de 3ème A est une classe avec un effectif élevé : 30 élèves. Le niveau est très hétérogène et certains élèves présentent un profil particulier (une élève dyslexique et dyspraxique ayant droit d'utiliser un ordinateur portable en classe, deux élèves bénéficiant d'un parcours personnalisé et n'assistant qu'à deux heures d'anglais par semaine au lieu de trois, une élève anglophone, ....). Cette grande hétérogénéité se traduit par des différences de besoins, de rythme, de degrés d'autonomie, de niveaux aussi bien dans les activités de réception que de production. Plusieurs élèves manquent de confiance en eux et se montrent ainsi très réservés dans les activités de classe. Suite à ce constat de départ, des adaptations pédagogiques ont été mises en place tout au long de l'année en classe de 3èmeA et ces adaptations ont même été renforcées lors du prêt de tablettes numériques. - utilisation conjointe des lecteurs mp3 et des tablettes.

The Seven Best Silent Short Films for Language Teaching - Kieran Donaghy As many short films are artistic, they have limited appeal in the commercial marketplace and are funded from diverse sources. To make them easier to sell worldwide, they often contain little or no dialogue, which makes comprehension much easier. As a result, they offer intensely ‘filmic’ experiences, using images and movement, sequence and duration, sound and music to tell their stories. These silent films are perfect for the language classroom as they can be used with any level – the teacher just needs to adapt the difficulty of the task to match the level of the students. Here are the seven short films which I have found work best in the language classroom. Your Secret Your Secret is a wonderful short film by Jean-Sebastian Monzani.
