Coffee time at Summerhill school, UK

There are papers at the photocopier for those students who failed the subject of English language last year. (Inglés suspenso de Bacc 1)

Avoid speaking Spanish language in class.

Do not ask questions such as: “¿qué pone ahí?”, “no te entiendo”, “dime”, “¿cómo se dice?” (say “what is that? or “what is to be put here”*, “I don´t understand you”, “tell me”, “how do you say?” instead)

When your teacher is calling the register don´t answer like this: “oui”, sí”,”¿qué?”,”yo”, “aquí” (say “yes!”, “pardon?”, “me!”, “present!” instead)

Get a dictionary with you (it is incredibly useful)

Do you want to listen? / Does she want to listen?

I have a sister and she´s got a Ferrari / I have a sister who has a Ferrari*

Do not ask “¿sigo?”, “¿copiamos eso?”, “¿qué hay que hacer?”; ask “Shall I go on?or “can I finish?” “let me finish”*, “shall we copy that?”, “what do we have to do?”

Doing the exercises right is a positive thing, but it is much better to understand what you are saying or writing in English. In other words, grammar might be a bit difficult sometimes but doing nonsense can be really bad.

Remember basics: January, February, …… / one, two, three, four….. / me, you, him…. /my book, her boyfriend, …. / is it quarter to seven?*, it is five past ten … / Monday, Tuesday, …/ this book is Michael´s book , these are my books, …

Haven´t you seen Tom yet? (aún) / Have you seen Tom yet? (ya)

Functional language:

What is that? …………………….

How do you spell …? …………………………..

I have written/said* ……………………….

Can I speak Spanish, teacher? ………………………….

Can I clean the blackboard?…………………………………

May I come in? ……………………………………….

Has anyone got a dictionary, please? ……………………….

I am having a shower at the moment…………………..

I haven´t got it. Sorry! ………………………
