Hello students! Easter is coming and we use to eat some chocolate bunnies and eggs during this holiday. But do you know how are they made? With this video you will be able to know it and also to practice your listening.
Try this. First watch the video with subtitles in English. Once you understood the process, turn off subtitles and watch video again. Try to identify words you´ve already heard in the video and test if you can now understand it.

Hi students. Remember in special situations we can invert the order of the verb and the subject in a sentence so that we add emphasis to it. The best way to learn this, of course, is with exercises, and this is why here I give you a link so that you may practise.
Inversion Exercises (link)
Hi. In previous lessons we have been reviewing conditionals, and the Third Conditional can sometimes be confusing.
Remember we use this conditional to describe a situation that didn’t happen, and to imagine the result of this situation.
We make the third conditional by using the past perfect after ‘if’ and then ‘would have’ and the past participle in the second part of the sentence:
- if + past perfect, …would + have + past participle

Last week we did some exercises of Present Simple and Present Continuous. In order to avoid mistakes the best choice is to practise as much as you can.
Remember we use:
Present Simple for: Things that are true in general, habits, permanent situations, short actions happening at the moment, or future if we are talking about a fixed plan or schedule.
Present Continuous: Things that are happening at the moment of speaking, temporary actions (even if not happening at the moment), temporary or new habits and future arrangements.
On the link you have below, you will find a game that will help you with the structure of sentences using either simple Present Simple or Present Continuous.
Once you open the link, scroll down until you find a box marked as “GAME”. Open it and a fun game will display.
Try to give the correct order to the sentences within the time given.
Hello dear students. During the last weeks we have been learning how to use adjectives when we want to compare things.
At the bottom of this blog you will find a link to a game about comparatives.
But first, remember that in order to form a comparative adjective, we need to follow the next rules:
One-syllable adjectives adding “er”
Example: My dad is older than me
If the one-syllable adjective ends with “e”. Just add “r”
Example: A ship is larger than a boat
If the one-syllable adjective ends with a consonant and a single vowel before it, you have to double the consonant and add “er”.
Example: A horse is bigger than a cat
Two-syllable adjectives. You have to add “more” before the adjective
beautiful more beautiful
peaceful more peaceful
Example: Our new house is more beautiful than the old one.
Two-syllable adjectives ending with “y”. Change the “y” for an “i” and add “er”.
Two-syllable adjectives ending with: “le” add “r”. Ending with “ow”, add “er.”
This road is narrower than the motorway.
Adjectives with three or more syllables. Add “more” before the adjective.
important more important
intelligent more intelligent
A dolphin is more intelligent than a fish.
Remember there exist some irregular adjectives which are exception to the rules:
