American vs British English

American vs British English

Hello! This week someone has asked me about the differences between American and British English so I decided to share this post with you! It’s true that there aren’t huge differences between American and British English but without any doubt some words can lead to misunderstandings so it’s always useful to know the different meanings of the words we are using.

As you can see there aren’t differences only in meaning but also in the spelling of some words.

Do you know any other words that have a different meaning or a different spelling depending on the country?

 

 

Pancake Recipe

Hello! This week we have been talking about food in my PET groups and how to prepare some dishes, so today I would like to show you an example of a recipe in English. Since it was Pancake Day on Tuesday, as you may know, here it is the perfect pancake recipe!
INGREDIENTS

1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 ¼ cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl, put together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter. Mix until it is smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the mix, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
And that’s it!

If you like it, you can also add cinnamon or vanilla to your pancakes!

Task for my PET group: write your own recipe (anything you want) and bring it to class next day! We’ll read them and share our recipes with each other!

Bucket list

Hello! 2016 has just started and I’m sure that most of us have made a bucket list with the goals that we want to achieve this year: going to gym, spending more time with our relatives, giving up bad habits, etc. As it’s January maybe we’ve already started some of this resolutions (or maybe not), but it seems that we give up very quickly and by the end of February most of us we’d have already forgotten about our goals! That’s why today I want to share with you a website where you can make your own bucket list and get inspired by sharing your goals. Maybe this will help us to stay motivated and for once achieve everything that we want to do not only in 2016, but in our life!

What’s in your bucket list?
