Hi, everyone!AMC_2015B

Here we are again for a new schoolyear

New topics, new vocabulary, new activities.

Some hard work, but also lots of fun!

Let’s start. The sooner, the better.Work-Hard-300x300

 

 

Planning your future

Future actions can be expressed in several ways:

  • Will future

  • Going to

  • Present Continuous

This diagram could be a good guide:

What-Career-Should-I-Choose-294x300

When you attend year 9, you know that soon enough you will have to make a few decisions concerning your future. 

Then you start asking yourself questions:

  • Should I get a job or go on studying?
  • If I get a job, what kind of job should I look for?
  • If I go on studying, what sort of subjects or course should I pick?
  • A vocational course? A regular one? Which career should I choose ?

Well, maybe these are the wrong questions. First you have to analyse yourself.

You need to think about your personality, your interests and your skills.90d901321f8867c5a53f82c4471c8f26

  • What are you like? What kind of person?
  • What areas, hobbies are you interested in?
  • What are you good at?
  • What do you imagine yourself doing in about 10 years?

Getting an answer to those questions might help you choose a future.

You can also get some help from specialised websites which try to give young people a hand to choose a career path.

Take a look at those two links below. They provide two quizzes that could help you.

St Valentine’s Day – 14th February

Well, well, dear ones, are you ready for Cupid’s shot? St Valentine’s Day is approaching and we should start preparing our celebrations.

cupid-shooting-hearts

Are there any suggestions?

  • Why not write a St Valentine’s letter or a romantic message? Look at these rhymes. It’s quite easy!!
Roses are red,
Violets are blue;
Sugar is sweet
…and so are you.

They can be sweet or funny like these two:

Roses are red,boy-holding-red-valentine-heart
Violets are blue;
Please don’t kiss me
Because I have the flu.

Roses are red
School is out
I need a vacation
There is no doubt.

So let’s start writing! I’m waiting for your rhymes or messages.
