Learning English through New Year’s resolutions
Hi dear readers!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Blessings to all of you and my best wishes for 2010! I’d like to share some online materials I’ve found that might help you enliven your first class day and make your students enjoy learning English while discussing on their New Year’s resolutions:
5. http://www.ac-nancy-metz.fr/enseign/anglais/Henry/newyear.htm (French/English)
1. Ten Top resolutions in UK:
2. Interviews in NY:
3. A funny New Year’s parody of The Beatles, “Revolution”.
My own ideas:
Ask your students to:
•Update their nicks or statuses on Facebook and messengers with New Year’s resolutions.
•Tweet or exchange Twitter messages with resolutions for the new year.
•Create a video with their classmates wishes or resolutions for the new year.
•Blog on New Year’s resolutions.
•Create a Voicethread.
•Email voice messages by using Snapvine.
•Create a wish or resolution wall with http://wishwall.net/
Hope these ideas can be of great help to enlighten your classroom on the first class days.
