Oral skills (English language method)

I don´t hate school

Work oral skills in the classroom. It would be ideal to test students´oral skills in short interviews; however, another way could be just Q & A, that is, make questions quickly to students and check their answers (intonation, pronunciation, fluency)

Recuerdo de un olvido (Manuel Altolaguirre)

Recuerdo de un olvido

MANUEL ALTOLAGUIRRE

Se agrandaban las puertas. Yo gigante,

con el recuerdo de mi olvido dentro,

atravesaba las estancias,

golpeando las paredes sordas.

¡Qué collar interior en mi garganta

de palabras en germen, de lamentos

que no podían salir, que se estorbaban

en su gran muchedumbre!

¡Cuánto tiempo de olvido incomprensible!

Siempre ella en su ventana.

Su ventana entre dos nubes

-una y ella- siempre.

Y yo distante, agigantado, loco,

con el recuerdo de mi olvido dentro,

pesándome en el alma su naufragio,

agarrándose, hundiéndome,

en un espeso mar de cielos grises.

A bit more rich than it used to be (English language method)

I am trying to make classes a bit more rich by means of showing new points of difficulty in theory and practice. [Do not ask easy questions in controls such as “write the days of the week in order”, “put all the personal pronouns of object”]

Deal with some varied grammar points, some extra vocabulary packs and share sentences a bit more complicated than usual. Try to challenge students´s language skills. Include functional, useful language in the classroom. Board work. Oral chorus (pronunciation)
