Pe, are you a banker or a bunker?

video

We watched this video last week to know how other people overcome their fear of making mistakes. In the process of learning a second language, mistakes are commonplace. However, it's important to try not to do them again... Let's learn from Pe's mistake: Spanish find it difficult to pronounce cat /kæt/ and cut  /kʌt/, bun and ban, bunker and banker...

English at home?

Did you imagine a more exciting way to learn English? Following some easy steps, you will be able to enjoy your favourite sitcoms or soaps at home on your own TV (as long as they are originally English, of course). Just press the MENU button and find the options to change the audio language and to add subtittles. So easy!

So, you can watch The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, The Simpsons... and at the same time, learn English! Isn't that great?!

On Saint Valentine's Day, we had fun with the sitcom The Big Bang Theory in class. It was the episode The Large Hadron Collision, do you remember this part?
