This year we want to raise at least 2000€ (so far, we have raised 1,135€, so we’ve beat last year’s total, but still need more to reach our objective of 2,000€). Could you please donate 1€ or 2€ (or 5€) through the Ziggurat page on the Magic Line website? 

NOTA: You can still donate at the following link: http://www.magiclinesjd.org/es/donar/31

All the money we donate goes directly to the hospital!

Y al final del post incluimos un link al Activity Pack, un PDF descargable (que nuestros alumnos también pueden encontrar en la Biblioteca de nuestro Campus Virtual).

WORD OF THE YEAR

The last Daily Vitamin post of 2018 was the Oxford Dictionary 2017 Word of the Year, which was YOUTHQUAKE. We began 2019’s lessons by looking at the 2018 Word of the Year, which Oxford announced in December. The 2018 Word of the Year was TOXIC.


NEW ENGLISH WORDS

This first week of January we also did lessons about New English Words. These are words that have recently been added to the English dictionary.


GERUND OR INFINITIVE

In the lessons about Gerund vs. Infinitive we gave you a sentence and asked you to complete it with either a gerund (a verb ending in –ING) or an infinitive (an infinitive verb with TO).


CAMBRIDGE FCE READING AND USE OF ENGLISH, PART 2 (I)

In the Cambridge FCE Reading and Use of English, Part 2 lessons, we gave you a sentence with a blank and asked you to complete it with ONE word.


COMPOUND ADJECTIVES

And finally, we looked at Compound Adjectives. These are a combination of two words that create an adjective. We often use a hyphen between the two words to combine them into one phrase.


THE MAGIC LINE ON FEBRUARY 24th

In January we also announced our participation in the Magic Line fundraising event for the well-known hospital, Sant Joan de Deu. They work to help the most vulnerable people.

We ask you to donate money to the Ziggurat Magic Line team. All of the money you donate goes directly to the hospital. We have the goal to double our objective from 2017, which was 1,000€ (and we ended up raising 1,124€). This year we want to raise at least 2000€ before the day of the walk, on February 24th. Please, could you donate a euro or two (or five) through Ziggurat’s page on the Magic Line website: http://www.magiclinesjd.org/es/donar/31?

Thank you very much for your collaboration!

English Daily Vitamin (December 2018)

Hoy hemos publicado la última Daily Vitamin del año 2018. Si has seguido las últimas lecciones de inglés, sabrás que este mes hemos tratado temas relaciones con las fiestas y Navidades. Aquí te dejamos el listado con todas ellas (y abajo ACTIVITY PACK DESCARGABLE para practicar).

daily_vitamin_2016

HOLIDAY SONGS
At the beginning of the month, we decided to get into the holiday spirit, so the first week’s theme was Famous Holiday Songs. We were looking at the vocabulary from different holiday songs.

 

BAD CHRISTMAS JOKES
That was the second week of holiday-related posts, and we were celebrating the season with a week of Holiday Jokes. One of the more difficult things to do in your second language is tell and understand jokes (no matter how good or bad they are).

 

WORD OF THE YEAR
We were looking at the Word of the Year for the past five years. Each year, Oxford Dictionaries announces the Word of the Year. This is a word or expression that (according to Oxford Dictionaries) “has attracted a great deal of interest over the last 12 months.” The word reflects the events or the emotions of the year.

We thought it would be fun to look at previous winners.

English Daily Vitamin (November 2018)

daily_vitamin_2016Hello!

Hoy hemos publicado la última Daily Vitamin del mes de noviembre. ¿Te has perdido alguna? Aquí tienes el listado de todas las lecciones del mes:

SPOT THE ERROR
The first week of November, we brought back the Spot-the-Error theme. Do you know what is wrong with the sentences below?


PHRASAL VERBS vs. FORMAL VOCAB
English often has a phrasal verb that is the less-formal equivalent of a formal word or phrase. We looked at these pairs.


IDIOMS FOR BEING THANKFUL
Thanksgiving is a time when people reflect on what they have and what they are thankful for. To celebrate, we looked at idioms and expressions for being thankful.


CAMBRIDGE READING AND USE OF ENGLISH PART 4
You don’t have to be studying for a Cambridge exam to learn something or to participate! Part 4 of Reading and Use of English is a fun grammar and vocabulary challenge. Here’s how it works:

  1. You have two sentences. One sentence is complete. The other is missing words.
  2. You must complete the second sentence so that its meaning is the same as the first sentence.

For the First Certificate Exam, you can use 2-5 words. For the Certificate of Advanced English, they allow 3-6 words.

 Y para repasar las lecciones del mes de noviembre, podéis descargar el ACTIVITY PACK AQUÍ.
