Webpage, MOODLE and summer tasks for English language students

English language.-Business English 1

June 22nd, 2016

The webpage of school is an essential tool. There one can see practical, general information. Students will find the dates for examinations, warnings, material required for every subject, activities, proposals, pictures, etcetera

A different thing is AULA VIRTUAL also known as @moodle (twitter). Here you will get exercises, tasks, theory pages, GIFS, images, links, videos and so on. Use dictionaries of English language and Spanish to learn new words.

(Write here the meaning of: find … / also known as … / tool … )

It is a good idea to study English language, Literature or Business English notions a few minutes every day. You must not study without a pen and a notebook. It is important not to confuse basic words in English. A typical mistake students make is writing Thuesday instead of Thursday (jueves)

If you think that doing these summer exercises is the key to pass the English language exam, you are wrong. These exercises are only a minimum part of all the work you have to do in summer. Study every day, listen to the BBC podcasts very often, use dictionaries, read English newspapers, read a reader of your choice, write a lot of English words, practise saying verbs in loud voice.

If possible, watch TV series in English language audio with subtitles in Spanish — or English.

Revise basics such as days of the week, numbers, vocabulary, personal pronouns, possessive adjectives, lexical verbs (regular and irregular verbs), auxiliary verbs, conjugations of verbs, idioms, abbreviations, et cetera.

Consult and exploit all the stuff you have: textbook, notebook, Parallel Papers, audios, podcasts, Aula Virtual or @moodle, television, trips to the UK, Skype

Be good & good luck!

An excellent webpage on verbal tenses of the English language

19 January 2016

An awesome website where students will find out lots of examples, clear explanations and uses on English grammar


Present simple tense

Basic form

Subject + Verb (present form)


Quick examples

John lives in New York.

We play football every day.

You are really kind.

The meeting starts at 3 PM.

The Present Simple is the most basic tense in the English language. It is an interesting tense because it can be used to express the future. Generally, though, we use it to describe the present activities or to talk about routines or habits.


1.Facts, generalizations and universal truths

2.Habits and routines

The Present Simple is often used with the frequency adverbs:

always / frequently/often / usually / seldom/rarely / nowadays / never / every week/year / sometimes/occasionally / from time to time / every now and then

A few examples how to use them in sentences:

I always go to church on Sundays  / I never eat anything after 10 PM.

3.Permanent situations

4.Events that are certain to happen

My grandmother turns 100 this July

Winter starts on December 21

5.Arrangements that we can’t change (e.g. timetables, official meetings)

6.State verbs (e.g. be, have, suppose, know)

I like swimming

We know this man

7.Narrations, instructions or commentaries



Apart from the above uses, this tense is also used in:

8.Zero Conditional (“If it doesn’t rains, I go play football.”)

9.First Conditional (“We won’t get our pocket money, if we don’t pass this exam.”)

10.In sentences after when, before, till, after, as soon as (“Before you leave, please take the keys.”)



Forming a sentence in the Present Simple is easy. To form a declarative sentence, all you need is the subject of the sentence (e.g. I, you, he, a dog) and the verb (e.g. be, talk, swim). Questions and negative sentences are only a little more difficult, because they require an auxiliary verb.

Declarative Sentences 

Subject                                            +Verb (present form)

e.g. he, she, a dog, etc.               e.g. go, make, have, etc.

A dog is an animal / I learn English twice a week / The course starts in April


Questions require the auxiliary verb “to do” or, in the third person singular, “does”

Do or Does    +Subject                             +Verb (present form)

e.g. he, she, a dog, etc.   e.g. go, make, have, etc.

Person A: Does she like going to the mountains?

Person B: Yes, she does.

Person A: Does John have a dog?

Person B: No, he doesn’t.

When asking a question, the verb does not conjugate:

Does she have a dog?

Does she has a dog?* [WRONG]

For the verb “to be”, we do not use an auxiliary:

Is he tall?

Does he be tall?* [WRONG]

Is he a lawyer? / Does Mike go swimming every Sunday? / Does she live in London?

Negative Sentences

Subject                                +Don’t or Doesn’t              +Verb (present form)

e.g. he, she, a dog, etc.                                                  e.g. go, make, have, etc.


Contracted forms in the negative

do + not = don’t

does + not = doesn’t

They don’t live in New York anymore / I don’t like Winter / He doesn’t go to the cinema at all / Spring doesn’t start in December  



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!
