ACTIVITY PACK. Wearing nothing new

¿Has preparado ya tus propósitos para 2018? ¿Este año quieres aprender inglés? Recuerda: es mejor hacer un poco cada día que esperar a tener 1 o 2 horas a la semana para ponerte a estudiar.

¿Qué puedes hacer hoy? Te proponemos que veas el siguiente vídeo de 6 minutos de Jessi Arrington, quien explica que es posible vestir con estilo por menos de 20 dólares, comprando en mercados de segunda mano. Después de visionar el vídeo descarga este ACTIVITY PACK y contesta las preguntas.


Designer Jessi Arrington packed nothing for TEDActive but 7 pairs of undies, buying the rest of her clothes in thrift stores around LA. It’s a meditation on conscious consumption — wrapped in a rainbow of color and creativity.

7 Ways to Learn Languages Online

The Internet is an incredible tool for language learning, but sometimes we have so many options that we don’t know where to begin! Check out these 7 ways to learn languages online for some creative and fun ways to learn a new language.

1.LYRICSTRAINING.COM
With Lyricstraining.com, you listen to songs while reading the lyrics and complete the missing words. The site offers songs in dozens of languages and offers classics and current hits. The site offers beginner, intermediate, and advanced options for all songs, so it’s great for all levels!

2. AUDIOBOOKS
Listen and read at the same time with an audiobook! Short stories, novellas, classic novels, and even speeches are all available in written and audio form on many sites. For English learners, we recommend ESL Bits.

3. TED
Perhaps one of the most popular sites for learning a language is TED: the videos come with transcripts and well-written subtitles in many languages. With so many topics, you are sure to find a TED Talk that fits your interests.

Practise with our TED Activity Packs. Check them out here!

4. SOCIAL MEDIA
Sites such as Instagram are excellent for learning a language through context: by seeing the photo, you will better understand its caption. After reading the caption in your new language, click on “translate” to see if you understood.

5. LANGUAGE IMMERSION EXTENSION (Google chrome)
Google has created an extension called Language Immersion that allows you to learn new words while you are reading online. The extension translates some of the words of any site into the language you choose (currently there are 64 languages offered). If you don’t understand the word, simply click on it and Google changes the word back to your native language.

5. QUIZLET
Teachers have been using Quizlet for years, and it’s a great tool if you’re looking for some vocabulary practice!

6. PODCASTS
The world of podcasts is large: find one you love! Podcasts are great while commuting, cleaning the house, or just relaxing. If you’re not at the level where you can listen without a transcript, check to see if the podcast has one: many do.
