Reminder of two basic rules in the classroom

Reminder (attendance, webpage and notebook) -side B-

Look, sometimes you sit next to the worst student at school. And you do nothing to change his attitude. You are not a good friend. He is not your friend either.

Sometimes you speak in loud voice when your teacher is speaking to you and that is not good, you know.



The bad way to do things in the classroom:




  1. move and standing up continuously
  2. play silly games in class (hiding material to your classmates)
  3. make somebody laugh when the teacher is speaking
  4. asking for permission to leave the classroom
  5. forget your textbook or dictionary
  6. sit in the wrong way, looking backwards, for example
  7. shout to anyone
  8. chew chewing gum
  9. remind the teacher it is time to finish




Stop that silly game for silly kids of hiding school stuff such as pencil cases, dictionaries or books




Sometimes you hate a subject like English language or Maths for no reason.


Be good. Good luck!

😉 Eugene F

Reminder: reading and writing

17 November 2011

by eugeniofouz

Do you like reading?

Read in Spanish, get used to reading newspapers, notes and short stories. Try to read a novel or two one day. Next weekend try to have a look at any of those little books at home. You should read Richard Bach´s Juan Salvador Gaviota

Do you like reading in Spanish?

or maybe you might enjoy reading Antoine de Saint-Exupéry ´s El principito. Who knows? Reading a short novel Cachito (Un Asunto de Honor) written by Arturo Pérez Reverte might be a good start.

Why don´t you try to read a novel today? 

When you read a book it is indispensable to have a Spanish dictionary open and ready. Dictionaries show meanings of words, set phrases, double meanings, spelling, etcetera.

And how about reading texts and books in English language? What about taking notes in blocs?

Doing nothing in class is negative behaviour

Get a bloc to make your own lists of English words and their meanings. Read words in loud voice.  Repeat them. Revise “basics”(numbers, possessive adjectives, etc) just by copying them once, twice and three times.

You should take notes in class. Pay attention to teachers. Always copy the homework. Don´t forget that homework is something essential for good students. Don´t do exercises in the textbook; use a notebook instead.

Use dictionaries and learn vocabulary. Search for idioms, linkers and verbs calmly. The first meaning you find in a dictionary doesn´t have to be the appropriate meaning. Work with words in context.

Listen to podcasts

Watch English or American TV series in V.O with subtitles in Spanish

Listen to any English radio programme you can

Reminder 2011.1

26 April 2011

Three things to be good at English:

I can´t promise you a pass for English, but English won´t be a problem for you if you follow these three pieces of advice:

  1. Use dictionaries. You need words to communicate well. Believe me, words are useful. A dictionary of English for a student of English language is as important as a calculator for a student of maths.
  2. Get a notebook for English language only (write vocabulary, solutions to exercises, translations, questions, etcetera)
  3. Speak English in class. Good speakers practise a lot of talking.

Don´t be lazy in the classroom: show you are interested in the subject and take notes and copy the information from the board.

Moreover you can listen to some audios, CDs, songs or podcasts from the BBC. Downloading podcasts is one of the best ways to improve your pronunciation.

Today there are TV series, films and documentaries in Original Version with or without subtitles. Practise English by watching these programmes.

Vaughan radio programme is in FM radio at 97,1 MHz for 24 hours. There are several sessions on different levels of language. Choose your favourite session to learn English.

Una columna periodística para leer en Galicia un día de lluvia

18 January 2011

(La oficina café. Lugo, diciembre 2010.- Fotografía: EF)

A mi mejor amigo, José Antonio MC.

Aunque suene a broma encontrar una columna escrita en gallego en un blog que alterna la lengua inglesa con la española, este no es el caso. Xosé Carlos Caneiro es el autor de “Aznavour” que publicaba el día 28 de diciembre de 2010 “La Voz de Galicia”.

Uno no ha podido evitar emocionarse al leer el Día de los Santos Inocentes el texto en la contraportada del diario mientras esperaba a su mejor amigo en un café en su ciudad natal y llovía como es normal. Era invierno y tiempo de Navidad.

La Voz de Galicia –Martes 28 de diciembre de 2010



Xosé Carlos Caneiro

Escoitaba a Aznavour mentres viñan sobre os ollos, chorándome, todas as palabras que repite a humanidade. Xa saben: feliz aninovo, olvidarás os malos momentos e vencerás, chegarán por fin as pombas ao teu balcón, a muller ou o home que non saben de metáforas entenderán talvez por qué tanto amabas, o individuo díscolo e hipócrita dirá que só ti importas, feliz aninovo outra vez, 2011 rima con alegría… Escoitaba todas as palabras que todos escoitamos mentres Aznavour cantaba que estaba Venecia triste sen ti. Choraba. As lágrimas son redentoras cando chega un novo ano; incluso parecen estúpidas cando un é capaz de escribilas un 28 de decembro. Qué triste está Venecia… cantaba Aznavour.

Eu quería que asubiases esa canción que todos coñecemos mentres escribo estas palabras. Estes «ques» que saen do meu corazón como unha oración que non sabe mentir. Que a felicidade escriba nos teus ollos toda a felicidade que os malos tempos roubaron. Que gañe a inocencia (este 28 de decembro) e que perda a experiencia, os tres pés do gato, o «desconfía e vencerás», o «máis vale paxaro en man que cento voando». Que mires a lúa e escribas poemas de mazá mentres todos escriben nada. Que ames, que te amen. Que 2011 veña cargado de sacos que ti vas romper cada noite, lúa por lúa, esperando o inesperado: o amor que chega cando non agardas por el. Que as nenas e nenos sigan soñando cos reis… que existen, aínda que xa non creas neles. Que non te entregues ao que non queres entregarte. Que pelexes polos teus principios (aínda que os teus principios non sexan rendibles nin comerciais). Que escribas cartas de amor, agora que só escribimos e-mails e facebooks e tuentis con sabor a superficie. Qué triste está Venecia. A 28 de decembro eu quero que musites esa canción mentres les esta columna da boa sorte. Que mires a lúa. Que cantes e cantes e cantes… Como Aznavour.”
