John Lennon

It´s been nearly 30 years ( next Wednesday) since John Lennon, one of the best-known musicians, was assassinated by a crazy Mark David Chapman. But his legend still lives on.

I´ve uploaded some songs for you to listen to, sing or just watch. They are worth a try. Hope you enjoy!

Who hasn´t heard about this song? The message is crystal clear.

Give peace a chance ( dad una oportunidad a la paz) A great pacifist Lennon was!

All you need is love. Great love song!

In my life. ( You have the lyrics both in Spanish and English)

3º B :For our lesson on Friday I want you to do something in advance. We are going to play a game called The Lying Game. You have to say 4 sentences ( three truths and one lie). The rest of the class has to "guess" which sentence is the lie by asking a lot of questions to the person speaking.

YOU MUST WRITE THEM USING THE PAST SIMPLE! Sometimes the use of the Present Perfect would be more correct. So if you know how to use it, do it!

Here are mine...Guess which one is the lie!

I studied Chinese for a year.

I broke both arms when I was little.

I saw a suicide ( self-defenestration) when I was living in Granada.

I haven´t flown more than 20 times.

3º A for Thursday.

Advice: The sentences must be a bit shocking. It isn´t very interesting to say " I play football" or " I don´t like going out with my friends". Be more original and creative!!

I´ll mark your pronunciation and the speaking could be assessed too.

Halloween is celebrated in many countries around the world, from Japan
to the USA. It takes place on the 31st October and usually involves the wearing
of scary costumes and attending Halloween parties. In the USA, the practice
of “trick or treating” is also popular.

Halloween probably originated in Ireland, from the Celtic festival “Samhain”.
It was a festival which celebrated the end of summer – the “lighter” half of the
year and the beginning of the “darker” half. People believed that evil spirits
would come out on this day, and so to protect themselves they would dress
up as evil spirits themselves. They wore costumes and masks and painted
or blackened their faces. There were similar festivals in other countries. The
word “Halloween” comes from the Scottish “All-Hallows-Even”, which means
“the day before All-Hallows”. All Hallows is All Souls Day or the “Day of the
Dead”, observed in many cultures around the world.

The massive immigration from Scotland and Ireland to the USA in the nineteenth
century took the tradition of Halloween there. It is more popular in the USA
nowadays than anywhere else in the world.


Probably the most important tradition in the celebration of Halloween is dressing
in costumes. Theses costumes refl ect characters from horror fi lms or literature;
Frankenstein, Dracula and The Mummy are favourites. The general themes are
death and evil and costumes include ghosts, witches, vampires, werewolves
and demons.


A jack-o-lantern is a carved out pumpkin with a candle inside. A scary face
is carved on one side of the pumpkin. Originally, in Ireland and Britain,
jack-o-lanterns were made from turnips, but in the USA pumpkins were plentiful
and much easier to carve out because of their size.

Trick or treating

This involves going from door to door, usually dressed in a Halloween costume
and asking for “treats”, such as sweets, cakes or even small amounts of money.
The question “trick or treat?” means “give me a treat or I’ll play a trick on you!”
This trick would be some kind of prank or joke.


In Scotland, guising takes the place of “trick or treating”. Children go from
house to house and perform tricks; they sing a song, do a dance or tell
a story in return for a treat.

Games and activities.

Apple bobbing is a popular game at Halloween parties. Apples are put
into a barrel or a tub of water where they fl oat on the surface. The idea
of the game is to get an apple using your teeth. It’s great fun, and everyone
gets wet!

Divination games are also popular at Halloween parties. Divination means
foretelling the future. In Scotland, they peel an apple, then throw the peel
on the ground. The peel is said to form the fi rst letter of the name of your
future husband or wife.

Telling ghost stories is another popular activity. The story-tellers usually
wear a scary costume and use props like skulls or spiders. They create
a supernatural atmosphere using candles.
