Spanish: Me gusta el fútbol - Melendi

Hi everyone! here is a fun song about soccer you can use to practice verbs like gustar and the present tense of regular and irregular verbs. The video is interesting because it shows how different people play soccer around the world. Enjoy! 

Me gusta el fútbol - Melendi 

No es cosa de niños ni es cosa de viejos
el depor de reyes corazon de obrero
no solo un balon entre dos porterias
es una aficion que llora de alegria
no queda un soleto desde la pangea
de quien habra sido esta super idea
veinte jugadores con sus dos porteros
que algunos todavia llaman arqueros.

El calor de la gente impacienta al ambiente
que pita el de negro.
Me gusta el futbol porque soy
dios en casa por un dia
sentadito en mi sofa veo la champions y la liga
no quiero perderme nada
del domingo y su jornada
ni mucho menos un gol.

Sentao en mi salon no preciso almohadilla
hoy lo veo en casa con dos coleguillas
uno trae bufanda y cuernos vikingos
y el otro se encarga de las cervecillas
me acuerdo del primer dia en que fui con mi padre
estaba el campo lleno para despilcarme
senti por mi cuerpo un dulce cosquilleo
cuando el fondo norte gritaba el oeo.

El calor de la gente impacienta el ambiente
que pita el de negro.
Me gusta el futbol porque soy
dios en casa por un dia
sentadito en mi sofa veo la champions y la liga
no quiero perderme nada
del domingo y su jornada
ni mucho menos un gol.

Here is a nice way to practice the days of the week with your students. I included the lyrics for you as well. Enjoy!

La semana de Amparanoia

Voy corriendo, la poli va detrás
voy corriendo, a mí me quieren atrapar
en una cárcel a mí me van a encerrar
que vengan a buscarme no me encontraran

Y voy corriendo lunes, martes, miércoles,
jueves, viernes, sábado y domingo.
Y voy corriendo...

¿Qué malo he hecho yo?

Voy corriendo, la poli va detrás
voy corriendo, me quieren pillar.
El alquiler yo no voy a pagar.
Que vengan a buscarme, no me encontrarán

New: Ohio educators travel to sister school to learn about teaching in China

A Cleveland high school principal and four teachers recently traveled to China to visit their sister school in Guangzhou. They said they learned that teachers work in classes of 50 to 55 students during a school day that lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with two hour lunch breaks and 10 minute breaks between classes. "Understanding what's happening in another culture can only help to diversify your students and their outlook and world view," said Tracey Gobel, an English teacher who went on the eight day trip.You can read more about their exploits in the article linked below:

Video: Limón y Sal - Julieta Venegas

Hello, I would like to share this song I use for practicing the present tense of regular and irregular verbs. It's a catchy song that students tend to like, enjoy! I added the lyrics below.

Limón y Sal - Julieta Venegas

Tengo que confesar que a veces

no me gusta tu forma de ser
luego te me desapareces y no entiendo muy bien por qué 
no dices nada romántico cuando llega el atardecer te pones de un humor extraño con cada luna llena al mes.

Pero a todo lo demás le gana lo bueno que me das sólo tenerte cerca siento que vuelvo a empezar.

Yo te quiero con limón y sal, yo te quiero tal y como estás, 
no hace falta cambiarte nada,
yo te quiero si vienes o si vas,
si subes y bajas y 
no estás seguro de lo que sientes.

Tengo que confesarte ahora 
nunca creí en la felicidad
a veces algo se le parece, pero
es pura casualidad.

Luego me vengo a encontrar con tus ojos y me dan algo más
solo tenerte cerca siento
que vuelvo a empezar.

We use TPRS at high school, and would prefer to have someone willing to use that approach. The elementary program is to be basic introduction to language, using songs, games, and active learning. The position pays $40,133.00 - $56,898.00 per year.

News: Benefits of students contributing to class blogs?

What is the primary benefit of having students contribute to class blogs?

Blogging is fun and can be serious work at the same time. Getting your students involved in a class blog brings with it all kinds of great opportunities to keep them involved and engaging them in various styles of authentic writing. Best of all, setting up a blog is rather simple, even if you haven't had any prior experience or feel that you're not tech savvy. Here are some benefits of using a class blog:

  • encourage writing across the curriculum - blog posts can be activities and assignments themselves
  • a liberating change because they encourage short entries and alternative formats
  • engage students in authentic writing
  • provides a great opportunity to increase the visibility of the program
