3.en.12. Molly is certainly great, isn’t she?

Dear Students,

I told you there were many artists hidden in our group. We have just discovered the English department cooking skills. Now just have a look at Molly presenting “BOOK”. what do you think? isn’t she great?

Post a comment to the blog.

Take note of Molly’s pronunciation: portable, affordable, durable...

Can you think of any other adjectives with that ending?

Have you learnt any new words?

3.en.11. Fun Food poems

Here follow some fun poems on food. Let’s see if you like them.

I Eat

I eat apples-
crunch, crunch, crunch
I eat sandwiches-
munch, munch, munch
I eat lollipops-


I do not like the way you slide,
I do not like your soft inside,
I do not like you many ways,
And I could do for many days,
Without a soft-boiled egg.
lick, lick, lick
But I eat ice cream
quick, quick, quick!

3.en.9.Recipe: paella directly from the hands of the English department

As part of the project on food and eating habits, each group will have to write a recipe. The English department teachers are experts  making  “paella” . Last Friday, you saw our world famous chef, Rául, directly from Alicante, cooking a huge paella, helped by Molly and Belma.  Molly is taking good notes  to be able to prepare one when she goes back to Portland.

You can also see a video with all the ingredients you need. If you have any doubts, ask  Raúl, Molly or Belma.

Is your recipe for paella similar to this one?


3 Mai 2010 Posted by | anglès, projects | | 3 comentaris Frases hechas y refranes

La comida ha inspirado la sabiduría popular, sobre todo en tiempos no tan antiguos en los que se pasaba hambre y había poco más que pan.

    A cada puerco le llega su San Martín.
    A buen hambre, no hay pan duro, ni falta salsa a ninguno.
    A falta de pan, buenas son tortas.
    Amigo y vino, el más antiguo.
    Comer hasta enfermar y ayunar hasta sanar.
    Comida hecha, compañia deshecha.
    Con su pan se lo coma.
    Dame pan y dime tonto.
    En casa de herrero, cuchillo de palo.
    En esta vida caduca el que no trabaja no manduca.
    Mucho ruido y pocas nueces.
    No hay miel sin hiel.
    No se hizo la miel para la boca del asno.
    No sólo de pan vive el hombre.
    A nadie le amarga un dulce.
    Agua que no has de beber, déjala correr.
    Ahogarse en un vaso de agua.
    Ajo y agua y resina.
    Andar pisando huevos.
    Coger a alguien con las manos en la masa.
    Comer como una lima.
    Comer de gorra.
    Comer y callar.
    Comerse un marrón.
    Contigo, pan y cebolla.
    Cortar el bacalao.
    Dar calabazas a alguien.
    Échale guindas al pavo.
    Echar toda la carne al asador.
    Estar a partir un piñón con alguien.
    Estar en el ajo.
    Marear la perdiz.
    Matar dos pájaros de un tiro.
    Ni chicha ni limoná.
    No estar el horno para bollos.
    Como Juan Palomo: yo me lo guiso, yo me lo como.

3.en.7. It’s raining cats and dogs, so let’s do some on line pronunciation practice

Dear students.

This year we set off with heavy rain, do you remember the gurgling sound of the gutters back in September? Quite unusual in Palma!

Well, today the rain did not let us go to the Olivar and we had to postpone it until next Monday. Anyway, the rain will give us  some more  time to get extra practice. Our pronunciation will be almost P E R F E C T next Monday if we do this series of on line exercises. Since it is raining so much, it’s not a bad idea to do something useful, is it?

I do not want couch potatoes in my class. Leave TV for a while and get working!

Give it a try and surprise me. Each one should learn 10 new words, with a native like accent.  Words connected with food, of course!

Do the exercises and post the words you’ve learnt to the blog.
