2.en.27. How to pronounce Penélope Cruz as a real American. Films (3)

Thanks to Tatiana, I’ve just discovered that “inogolo”,the pronunciation guide that we are using for our Country project, has added a section for the Oscars. Visit the page and learn how to pronounce one or two English names  (actors, actresses or directors nominated for the Oscars) . Choose names you are not sure how to say properly, not Penélope Cruz, that would be cheating!  but, just for fun, you can also listen to someone  saying Penélope’s name  with an strong American accent!

2.en.22. The Oscars are approaching! writing about films (3)

I’ve seen you acting up in a you tube video during your Spanish lessons with Emili and next Monday Bernat has invited me to see you acting the  sketches you have prepared about  language families in your Catalan lesson. We also gave it a try in English with “The love of the 3 oranges”, so who knows, maybe in the future you will be nominated for the  Oscars.

This term we have learnt a lot about films and about how to write a film review. The Oscars are approaching and we shouldn’t  forget what we learnt, so let’s get some practice.  Have a look at this model and do the exercise in your notebook.

Homework deadline:  It must be finished for Tuesday 16th.

Let’s get some practice as film reviewers before the Oscar ceremony! Go to the official Oscar site: and look for information to write about the 2010 nominees as best leading actors or actresses.Write about movies following this model below:

Title of the film” is a (genre) starring (actor/actress). He/she plays a (character) brief explanation of his part.

Look at the example I have done for you

“Up in the air” is a drama starring George Clooney. He plays Ryan Bingham, a man who makes a living firing people.

Write  in your notebook 6 examples as the one above.

Who do you think will win?
