This website helped me to pass the B2 English exam certification last year. You must watch twice, first of all without subtitles and finally with subtitles.

Merry christmas everybody and good luck next year with the exam.

Almost whisper...

Let's Talk Gardening

Dear classmates,

Winter has come. It's time to be next to the fire and there's nothing nicer on a cold day than a hot cup of herbal tea. Infusions or herbal teas have lots of wonderful benefits.

Among the big quantity of them such chamomile, lemon verbena, lemon balm, mints... I suggest to drink thyme. Thyme conteins many active principles to prevent diseases. Fresh thyme herb has one of the highest antioxidant level among herbs. I have it every morning to help me to reduce the risk of developing a cancer again.

Like most herbs thyme is relatively easy to grow in pots, even indoors. You only need a bright windowsill and some basic attention. In outdoor gardens the best place is in dry locations where other plants have trouble thriving.

Growing Conditions:

Light: thyme prefers bright light or full sun.
Water: water regularly, but not excessively. 
Temperature: average.
Soil: airly, light, fast-draining soil.
Fertilizer: don't need an special one. Use a liquid fertilizer or supplement the soil with controlled- release pellets.


         

I hope you enjoy plants. They give us a better world.

Let's Talk Gardening

Hi everybody,

I'm becoming a gardener eager to learn and I would like to share with you the knowledges  I'd  adquire, under the tutorship of my experienced and enthusiastic husband.
If you are interested in  gardening, horticulture, healthy plants or you just enjoy sharing ideas, this can be a great way to learn lots of tips.
Let's do a garden's blog in EOI Llíria!!

To start with you can listen some tips in "Let's Talk Gardening", for fall planting.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-dyFPXjyo

In Valencia now is time for planting pansies, cyclamen, marigold, chrysanthemum, wallflowers, rudbeckia and others. These are some of a wide range of variaties to beat the dull fall blues.

 


And remember at that time of year you may plant the winter vegetables as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower (the best ones to avoid cancer disease), garlic, onions, chard, spinach... 


Next time we can talk about healthy plants as the stevia. My class mate  Robert and me just have cut down in sugar and we use that plant instead.

I hope you enjoy plants. They give us a better world.

Hi everyone!

As I told you in class, I'm taking part in an international project which uses online videogames -"Second Life" and "Open sim", for exemple- to learn languages. The program is called "NIFLAR" (Networked Interaction in Foreign Language Adquisition and Research).

I post the link to the website of NIFLAR just in case you are interested in learn more about the project. There are some videos of student interactions in Second Life. In these clips you can see how virtual worlds can be used as an educational tool (the students roleplaying with native speakers).

I hope you enjoy it!
