It's ok, don't worry! :)

Sira dijo...

It's ok Elvira,I was only joking. It is great that you can read so fast.

marta dijo...

Renata, I missed the ..,
Fantastic that you were on holiday and a surprise that it was sunny, wasn't it? I come from Santander and I'm here now and guess what? It is raining!
Sorry I can't help with the pages very much, I have a different edition and I can't remember anyway, I think it is up to page 44 in my book..

marta dijo...

Elvira, he thinks that he is the best.., could happen to him..,
You have a point, the successful professor's life is a mess and the poor professor's life maybe is not such a mess although he's life might be boring. I think they are both looking for something and they are none of them satisfied with their lives.

marta dijo...

Elvira, I think Sira was joking. A good joke too, she has sense of humour... a very English habit

marta dijo...

Are you satisfied with your lives? I think that at one point in our lives we all feel like the two professors, specially like Swallow, that our lives have not been as we expected them, they are boring and conventional.
But... is there much more to life?

Sira dijo...

Hello everybody,

I only wanted to say that I went to the exhibition this morning and I have enjoyed it very much! I wondered at the magnificent realism of some paintings and I laughted with others. The only thing is there were A LOT of people and tourists seeing the exhibiton, in spite of being Friday morning.

I think that you are going to enjoy it, too.

marta dijo...

Sira, I'm very glad you enjoyed it too and you describe it very well, I hear that everybody likes it, not only from school but people are commenting that it is great

MAY dijo...

Hi everybody

Marta, Can I make you a question? In the last essay you corrected me a phrase and I have a doubt. I wrote down "this book could be very interesting" and you corrected like "this book will be interested". Can you explain me? because I tought that with "could" It would be a hypothesis and with "will" It would be a fact and I used "could" because I don´t know If the book will be interesnting or not. Do you know what I mean?

Thanksss

MAY dijo...

sorry, I wanted to write "this book will be interesting" not "interested". sorry

MAY dijo...

sorry, I wanted to write "this book will be interesting" not "interested". sorry

Anónimo dijo...

HI !!!!!
How about the exibition??Someone has gone to the exhibition?? I want to know your first impressions about that!!!! see you tomorrow.

MAY dijo...

Hiiiiii

Yes, I went to the exhibition yesterday with my friends.
I didn´t like the fisrt part with paints about people but later It became more interesting with caricatures, modern sculptures, photos... and from my point of view, my favorite one, the very very big work in the gound floor, hahaha. It was very funny, made with plastic.

Enjoy it!!

marta dijo...

May, it is impossible that I wrote that, there must be a mistake. The sentence that you said I wrote doesn't make sense and it is grammatically incorrect. I must have misunderstood you, or I must have gone mad if I wrote that. Yours on the other hand is perfect. Show me in class, will you?

marta dijo...

May, that is more like it. I see what you mean and you are right about that explanation, but it must be that in context I thought WILL would be more emphatic or better for style reasons, I am not sure, I need to read it again.

marta dijo...

Anónimo, I agree, I also want to know your impressions about the exhibition, anybody been?

marta dijo...

May, made of plastic..,
Good that you've been, Gainsborough's was one of my favourite and also the one with the little girl and the sermon, I thought that was quite good. I also liked the one with the guy in the swimming-pool, it is very famous..
What about the rest of you, any favourites?

Vampi dijo...

Hi class:
Marta, i like my live, of course it can be better with a job, a house and a puppy ( one day i will adopt a dog), but i have a good family, a good boyfriend...some very good things.
I cant wait to see the "treasure island", i am going to see it the next saturday witg my boyfriend and my "father in law".
see you class .
A Capricorn

marta dijo...

Vampi, it is very nice to read your post. It is good to see the good that one has and to have something to look forward to, you are positive that is a blessing and your attitude in life is the adequate one. I am sure you will find everything you want.
And I am glad you are looking forward to seeing the exhibition, I am sure you will enjoy it.

marta dijo...

Thinking about Vampi's post it would be nice to post a few comments about our lives. This is related to the novel as we see that neither Phillip nor Morris are happy with their lives...
As for me I will say that now I am happy with my life, but when I was younger I was not so happy although I have had many things and I started working straight after university, but there are many things that you think will happen in life that maybe don't come and I sort of kept expecting them. But then I began to realise what I had and I could say as Vampi, I am happy with my life. This thank God happened some years ago, and it is really much better to have that attitude. Things are the same but what is important is the way you look at them, your attitude. Don't you think?

josegirl dijo...

Hellow, everybody! How are things?
I want to apologise Marta, because I haven´t written down anything for the last days... I have been so busy...
I remember you that today I have to leave the class earlier than ussual ( at 15,30h pm ) because my flight takes off at 18,30h pm). I will miss the following class, it means, I won´t be on Monday. If it had what ever thing that I had to do, please somebody tells me through the blog.
I am going to spend until next Friday in Rabat and after we will make an excursion to Chefchaouen, but I´ll try to read the English book....at least I take it....
See you this evening and have a good week end for all.


Jesús Manuel Ruiz dijo...

Good morning.
I liked the information about Abba very much. They were my favourite group although their songs are very sad. I have seen The Mamma Mia musical twice in Londres And once in Madrid. There are music, colours And dancing.

I recomend once film. The words. The translation is El Ladrón de palabras. It is a bad translation. When The film finishes you are thinking a long time. I hope you like it.

See you late

Sira dijo...

Hello Jesus,

thank you for recommending us the film. I have just red the synopsis and I find the story very interesting. If I have the opportunity to go, I will do it.

Regards.

Anónimo dijo...

Hi everybody!
It´s my first time in the blog.
I just to say you I liked to much this exhibition,it´s realy a treasure.

i hope you like it.

marta dijo...

Jose, I remind you.., I won't be here on Monday..., if there is something we should do please somebody tell me.., I am using the subjunctive that is why there is no S.
see you this afternoon..,
Well hope you have a fantastic week-end, not a rainy one for sure..

marta dijo...

Jesús Manuel, there is music.., see you later,
Well I do think it is the best reading in the book.
And I have been to see a play THE TRUTH, it is very entertaining although Flotats is not an actor that I like.

marta dijo...

Anónimo, I liked the exhibition a lot..,
Thank you for your comment and I am glad you liked it, I think it is very nice too.

marta dijo...

Vampi, thank you I will look and see.. well I will try to....

josegirl dijo...

Hellow class mates!
I have been in Rabat already!!! ( is it the correct expression?
The wheather is better than Madrid, it doesn´t rain and there are a bit more degrees of temperature, it is heater here than there.
The flight was smooth and I was reading all time but in French, sorry! Marta but you know... Ussually when I come here I get the flight Madrid-Rabat-Madrid ( You can travel like this since the past January, before there had not direct flight ) but in this occasion I travelled to Casablanca and thanks God!!! because yesterday I knew the other one it took three hours and thirty minutes of delayed. I got a car and it took me one hour and thirty minutes to go from Casablanca´s Airport to Rabat but I didn´t mind because there is a good and wide highway.
kisses

josegir dijo...

Hi!!! how are you?
Marta, I hope no to make a mistake about Saxon Genitive.... I don´t know but some times I mix the things... It could be dyslexia????
Yesterday in the Casablanca´s Airport suddenly I bumped into someone that I haven´t seem it ( or him????)for a long time and it has been ( or it was??) amused to chat each other for a while...
see you

josegirls dijo...

Hi, my favourite Abba´s song it is "chiquitita" it reminds me that my father liked it a lot...and therefore it is a good or great memory...
I don´t agree with Jesus not all the Abba´s songs are sad...

Merche dijo...

Nice long weekend to everybody. Enjoy your time.
And remember don´t forget the wellis on your baggage!!!!

regarts

Merche dijo...

I think that my last post was wrong, I think that Remember + don´t forget isn´t correct or it is a redundancy.
Don´t you think so???

MAY dijo...

Hi Lara

I like these groups too. Do you know the group called "three days grace"? They are more rock than gothic but maybe you will enjoy it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqds0B_meys

Nice weekend!!!

MAY dijo...

Merche, thank you a lot for you email, really.


Spend a good weekend!!

marta dijo...

Jóse, I have already arrived in Rabat.., in Madrid.., a few more degrees.., hotter.., all the time.., there was not a direct flight.., yesterday I found out that the other had a 3,30 hour delay.., motorway..,
Fantastic, glad you arrived well and are in sunny Rabat with your husband. Give him our love

marta dijo...

Jóse, I bumped into someone whom I hadn't seen and it has been amusing to chat with him/her for some time..,
You got the Saxon G right well done.
Yes it is nice to meet people whom you have lost contact with. Maybe... a man? Sorry, but I was thinking of your sister...

marta dijo...

Jóse, my favourite ABBA's song is.., not all ABBA's songs are sad
I don't agree either, one of my favourite is The winner takes it all although that is a sad one.
But Waterloo and Fernando are nice too or Mamma Mia

marta dijo...

Merche, in your baggage..
Yes the forecast says it will rain.. not so much in the north though. I hope they get it right I am in Santander.

marta dijo...

Merche, remember not to forget your.. or don't forget your...
Well the way you've put it is a sort of joke

marta dijo...

May, have a nice week-end

I see you two are enthusiastic about that kind of music!

Begoña dijo...

Yesterday I visited the exhibition of Caixa Forum about "Skyscraper, from Babel to Dubai".
The exhibition´s comments are on the wall and can be read in Spanish or English (large comments, not small ones next to the frame)
I found myself reading the exhibition´s comments in English.
Never before I had done it in a museum. Imagine you are visiting the Tate Modern and there isn´t choice
Have you ever tryed it?. It was funny

josegirl dijo...

Hellow everybody!
Tnaks a lot Merche for your exercises about preposition in English, I will print them when I arrived to Madrid. You are very kind...
Thanks a lot Marta for your corretions, it is very interesting to read them ( if I pay attention I strongly believe I will learn more )
kisses

Anónimo dijo...

Hellow, another time!
What about your long week end? The mine, it has been fantastic, althoug it has been raining for a few days, but I don´t care because Autumn station I like so much contrary to some people that the bad weather gets them down
Yesterday, we went to Chefchaouen, I recommend you to visit this city. It is a nice, small, cozy and striking village with their colours white and blue houses; it is surrounded of mountains and it is perfect to asmatic people because you can breathe fresh air all time ( I rememberd of my twin sister because She is asmatic person )We spent more than five hours walking, getting up an down through alleys and finally we sat down in the center square drinking a hot tea and regarding at the tourits and the local people. The worst it was the motorway because it took us more 3,30 hours from Rabat to Chefchouen , there isn´t highway and there are a quite curves on the road...
see you

Vampi dijo...

May, thank yo so much for show me a new group, they sound really nice.
For you and all the class, some days ago i talk througth twitter with an amazing group "Lesbian bed death" who are perfect for parties like hallowen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJOCiGdxtac
They come from UK.

Yesterday , i saw "Treasure island" with my boyfriend( who is studying history of art) and with his parents. I love the firts 5 parts. My boyfriends said that is quite good.

Marta. I need ask you something again.
I will have my surgery the next 19 of november and will lost my class during to weeks. Should i bring the receipt to you?

See you tomorrow.

marta dijo...

Begoña, what good news! It really is. It means that you are starting to get confident reading in English and that is because of the novel. Well done!

marta dijo...

Jóse when I arrive in Madrid. It is future not past.
It is a pleasure and of course you will, do not doubt that.

marta dijo...

Anónimo, mine has been fantastic, not the mine.., because I like Autumn so much.., who get down with the bad weather.., with its colours and its blue and white houses.., I remembered my twin sister..,she is asmatic.., the worst was the motorway.., and there are many turnings...
Well Jóse you are beginning to turn into a writer! Well done it is a very nice description and you have created quite a nice atmosphere. Well done!

marta dijo...

Vampi, I talked.., I need to ask you.., will lose, but one says miss. Inf without to after modal verb ok? An excuse certificate?
No it is not necessary, I hope everything goes well and it sure will.
I am very glad you liked it and that your boyfriend it was good too, he is a conosseur so he should know.

marta dijo...

Begoña, is that exhibition good? Should I send them off to visit it?

Jacques dijo...

"Treasure Island: British Art from Holbein to Hockney"

Thank you Marta,visiting an exhibition of British painting was a motivating idea to make an essay.

Learning a foreign language by means of its culture is really pleasant for me.

See you on Wednesday

marta dijo...

Jacques, thank you for saying so it is really motivating to read such a post. I am glad you enjoyed the exhibition and I appreciate very much what you say. It is indeed great to realise that some of you find it so.

MAY dijo...

One thing Marta

I don´t know when I´m going to arrive at the school tomorrow because with the strike, the subway doesn´t work normally.

See you tomorrow

Sira dijo...

Hello Marta,

It is going to be very difficult to me to be on time tomorrow, without spending hours on the public transport. I live out of Madrid, in Rivas and I have to do two changes. I don`t like missing class. Sorry.

Begoña dijo...

Hi Martha, I answer your question:
In the CaixaForum´s exhibition "Towers and Skyscraper from Babel to Dubai"
you can see photos, models, movies, interviews with engineers and arquitects... about the highest buildings in the world from the mitic Babel´s Tower to Dubai´s skyscraper, passing Eiffel´s Tower, American and Asian skyscraper...
It is curious how men try to reach heaven since antiquity.
The exhibition is quite good and interesting. And if you don´t like paintings don´t worry, there are a lot of audiovisual material.

marta dijo...

May, don't worry I understand, we will continue with the boring book. You can do that at home. Hope you'll be able to make it to school.

marta dijo...

Sira, missing the lesson or lessons. Don't worry, we will continue with the boring book and I understand perfectly that it is difficult for you to come. Those of us who can walk to our work are very lucky.

marta dijo...

Begoña, the mytical Babel Tower.., there is a lot of audiovisual material..,
Thank you very much for telling us. I have to go and see, I must say that I prefer oil paintings but I am going to try to go to this one.
Has anybody else been?

josegirl dijo...

Hellow my darling collegues...
Thanks a lot Marta for your commentary!!! it makes me more confident...and I promise you I will write more and more ( are you ready for that?)...
Today I dont´t know yet or ( I could use the present perfect? it means I haven´t known yet due to the particle "yet"??) if I could go to English class because like some fellow class I am a commuter adn I have to get several kind of public transport ( I don´t live in Madrid´s downtown )
I will try it but ... it is difficult for me...

MAY dijo...

Hi Marta

Today I have arrived at the school later and I don´t know the topic of the essay. Is the essay about "Advantages and disadvantages of being famous" or "advantages and disadvantages of the healthy cares in your country?"

Thank youuuuuu and spend a nice weekend.

marta dijo...

Jóse, you have used it well..., like some class mates... I have to catch several means of transport.., in the centre of Madrid, downtown is American,..., I will try to but...
Don't worry at all. However I don't think many people went on strike, but as you say transport is the difficulty.

marta dijo...

May, it is the second, the pros and cons of the health system or of alternative medicine. All very boring... I am sorry I think talking about famous people is much more fun.
Have a nice week-end too.

Andrés dijo...

Hello everybody in the blog!

How it was your strike´s day! I'm one more of a lots of people in Madrid that today we have decided to go to work. In my opinion, it isn't the most appropiate moment to celebrate this strike, mainly for economic reasons. Probably there are a lots of reasons that justify the measure but I consider that the trade unions are protecting their own interests and nowadays they aren´t protecting the general interests of the workers. I'm so sorry if someone is offended for my words, but it's my opinion.

I would like to know what are your opinions about this topic.

Good night and I'll see you tomorrow in class.

Sira dijo...

Hello everybody,

I want to make sure that the number of words in the essay has to be the same like the others [150-175 words].

And I also wanted to ask: Have you seen some grammar explanation in the last lesson?

Thank you very much and have a nice weekend!

marta dijo...

Andrés, how was your strike day?..,of the great number of people who decided to go to work.., there a lot of reasons.., if anyone is ofended by my words.., what your opinions on this topic are..,
Why should anyone be ofended? I hope we are in a free country and we can express our opinions. So that is what I am going to do. I think pretty much the same as you. It is not the right moment. What we should do is work for this country and there is not time for complaints. All the politicians are very similar, I don't know what they are sacrificing when everything they have is paid by us. As for the Trade Unions, they are obsolete, in my opinion. And all the political parties and trade unions should be financed by their supporters not by all the Spanish population!!

marta dijo...

Sira, Yes all the essays are between 150-175 words and I am sorry I am not sure if I explained anything for I am not even sure which class you attend.
Could somebody please inform Sira?
Thank you.

Vicente dijo...

It was a sunny day when I decided to go to the exhibition about British Art. I took a bus and then I was walking fifteen minutes to the Juan March Fundation. There was a long queue at the door, I thouthg it must be something else than the exhibition and It was, There was a concert.

I can go into without waiting. I took advantage to the explanation that a woman was given to a group of students and it was very interesting.

In the last part of the exhibition there are some works from Pop Art, one is the famous cover of the Sgt Pepper`s album from the Beatles.

The cover shows many famous peoples like Marilyn, Einstein, Groucho Marx, etc. To make the cover the artist, Peter Blake made a collage at real size with all the people and then The Beatles dressed like sargents posed infront of the collage and the artist took the picture.

marta dijo...

Renata. I missed the..
How nice to have been there on holiday! I love the North and Spain in general.
I can't remember but I think it was less than 10 pages so if you read that more or less it'll be fine.
Let's see if somebody tells you, please somebody will you tell Renata?

marta dijo...

This is me, I think I read the wrong message... sorry

marta dijo...

Vicente, I thought there must have been something else and so there was.., I could go in without having to wait.., I took advantage of the explanation a woman was giving a group of students.., the cover of the album Sargent P..., like sargents and posed in front of the..,
I hope that you liked it, it does seem to me that you did. I think it is really worth visiting.

josegirl dijo...

Hi friends! I,ve just read the last post and I absolutley agree with Marta and Andres about Day Strike. As far as I am concerned this kind of action only gets behind to go ahead and sincerely though the people gather we don´t achieve anything. We were arrogant and so clumsy, we wasted our money, time and intelligence...it has been ( it was??) a bit pity not to pay attention in the others patherns ( for the good an bad things ) and we made a lot mistakes about all in the construction.., personally I was one of a lot people affected for this economic crisis, I was made redundant by my bosses due to these circumstances. I have worked for the past five years in thecnical office of arquitectes ( we built the famous Guadalpin´s Hotel in Málaga and I daresay that we were the first (or one of them) exemple what can not be done.

See you

josegirl dijo...

Hellow colleges,
This afternoon we going to the cinema and we watching the Argo´s film, yesterday one of my friend recommended it me.
She told me that it is worth to catching, I will tell you.
Have a good afternoon!!!
kisses

marta dijo...

Jóse, the day of the general strike.., only stops the economical recovery.., though people demonstrate.., we have wasted.., and it is a great pity that we have not taken other people's experience into account.., and we've made a lot of mistakes specially in building.., I am one of the people affected by this crises, I was made.., technical office.., we built the famous Guadalpin Hotel.., example of what should not be done..,
Well I am sorry and I am positive you are right. In the end we are all victims of the crises in one way or another. The only ones who have not suffered so much, as far as I can see, are the politicians! I can't bare them, they have ruined our country, our education, our mentality and even now I fear that the only thing that really worries them is not to lose their job and their salary! Well salaries, one should say, as they have more than one.

marta dijo...

Jóse, we are going to the cinema.., to watch Argo.., one of my friends recommended it to me.., that it was worth watching..,
Careful with forgetting the verb.
Well have a nice afternoon, I am here in Santander, it is not raining thank God, and the prospect is a walk with my parents. But it is fine, then afterwards I'll go out to dinner... to put on weight! That means more biscuits during the week!

Anónimo dijo...

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
Visit my page : cheap cigarettes

marta dijo...

Anónimo, I am sorry but there's nothing I can do..
Please anybody, will you help him?
I am glad you enjoy reading our posts, maybe one of these days you could join in...

josegirl dijo...

Hellow, how are doing?
I,ve just read the corretions about my comentaries Marta and I am so angry myself because I know to use the form present continous and I swore that I wrotte domwn well but sometimes I don´t figure out what uses this blog...but I will take into account....
What about your week end in Santander? I love so much that city, simply is beautiful...
see you later

josegirl dijo...

Marta, Can I use the verb to catch instead of the verb to watch???
Is it correct to say: We made a lot blunders ( about the day of the general strike...)
see you

pablo dijo...

I do not meet nobody named Ana or Victoria in Intermediate A class, anyone here?

Sira dijo...

Hello Marta,

I would like to comment one correction with you:

I wrote in my essay: "Industrial Landscape by Laurence Stephen Lowry which has a greyish atmosphere 'lack of life'- I should have said: 'lacking in life'? Or, what would be the correct?

Thank you very much!

Sira dijo...

Sorry, what would be the correct sentence.

marta dijo...

Jóse, how are you doing?..., so angry at myself.., how to use the..., and I could swear I had written.., I don't figure out what this blog uses.., take it into account..., it is simply beautiful.
Jóse you have to try and coordinate the verbs, if you speak in the present keep to the present or if in the past keep to the past. I would also recommend that you use the S+V+O+A pattern so as to avoid direct translation from Spanish.
I had a very nice week-end in Santander, at home with my parents and going out to have dinner which I love. And what is a miracle in Santander..no rain!

marta dijo...

Jóse, no it is not they are completely different in meaning. However as there is no context it is difficult for me to say. You should provide an example.
We made a lot OF blunders... is what is correct.

marta dijo...

Pablo, I haven't met anybody..
And yes we are here, you have to go to el más reciente.. ok?

marta dijo...

Pablo, I haven't met anybody..
And yes we are here, you have to go to el más reciente.. ok?

marta dijo...

Sira, the correct answer.., lacking in life sounds ok to me, but I would the context, you see it is necessary to see the whole phrase.

marta dijo...

Sira, well done for correcting yourself.

annie dijo...

Hi! I think those who can go to north spain frecuently are very lucky. I have family in Palencia; but not in Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria... i´m discovering this land with little trips since last 5 years. Last one was two weeks ago, and I enjoyed it a lot, it was to Orense to see their terms, and I recommend it to you all. They are amazing; Prexigueiro´s ones specially. =)
I would tell you more advices in case you want to travel to see them.
Have a nice day!! ;))

pd: hi Pablo!! at least it´s me!!

Anónimo dijo...

Oh...im seeing some mistakes...I have to say "The last one"...true?? :(

Annie dijo...

I had found that web page who speaks (and put on clear )some David Lodge´s expresions:

http://www.google.es/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&cad=rja&ved=0CEIQFjAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fdialnet.unirioja.es%2Fdescarga%2Farticulo%2F69032.pdf&ei=4p6rUNCLEomDhQfjuYHQBA&usg=AFQjCNFuwT_QagSeTklBsa5NcEdpDIJbUg

I think it is interesting; I hope it works...

Sira dijo...

Annie,

Thank you.

Vicente dijo...

What you say is very interesting and thank you for the information about D Lodge too. I also love the North it is not so hot as here!!!

marta dijo...

Vicente, it is fantastid to think in English and your pronunciation will improve if you listen to English. But what is important is to work, you will see how you improve.

marta dijo...

Vampi, I am very glad your surgery went well and that you are fine. I hear you are in Santander, that's great, you will recover there.
As far as I can remember 10 pages more of the novel and continue with the boring book, we are going to do the reading about jokes.
Get well soon and keep in touch

josegirl dijo...

Hi collegues.. How are things?
First at all I´m very glad your (Vampi)surgery there had been successfull and I hope you get better litlle by little ( unfortunatley, I Know how you can feel, at least akward and uncomfortable because when I was twenty years old I suffered the same surgery but in my case all it was so complicated and finally I had two more ....I remembered with deep horror...
On the other hand Congratulations Annie, you are so brave and I advice you go on writting in the blog, it is so fun!!!

Jòse, hi mates.., has been successful.., all was very complicated and I had to have two more.., I remember it with horror..,
You must keep to the pattern S+V+0+A and try to write simple sentences at the beginning. And be careful with the coordination of the verbs, ok?
It is such fun...,
I agree with you and thank you for your enthusiasm and your comments, you are really getting this going.

marta dijo...

May, an essay.., for the 20th.., the exercises on.., but they occupy., send them by.., if you want them, give a pendrive and I will pass them to you...,
Well thank you for all this work, but I advise you to do all the listenings that you can except those in the boring book as we are going to do them in the class. Listen to the BBC or to others in the internet. The ones in the boring book are never going to appear in the exam... so better do others.
What would be very interesting would be to try and get hold of the cds of the novel.

Sira dijo...

Hi Marta,

as I didn't come the day you saw this exercise (6a, page 11 from the 'boring' book), I would like to ask you if what I write down is the correct solution. Thank you.

- Is her second husband Swedish?
- How long have they been writing songs?

- What does 'paparazzi' mean?
- What was the programme about?
- Who did play the piano in the group?
-Why didn't they play together again?
- How many records do they usually sell a year?

Thanks again.

Sira dijo...

I was wrong on the fifth phrase (Who played the piano in the group?). I've just seen the grammar related to that part, hehe.

Have a nice weekend!

annie dijo...

Hi mates!!
tomorrow the dentist is going to get out two of my wisdom teeth, and I am so afraid than I can´t sleep... ; (dont laugh a lot please!!)
I even have tried to see BBC but neither works (hahaha...it´s a joke).
Seems that some of us likes surgery...
Have a happy weekend!! =))

sira dijo...

Well Annie,

keep calm, everything is going to be ok. The best to fall asleep is watching and hearing documentaries, hehe. The Speaker's voice is so relaxing!

I hope you have a good surgery.

Greetings.

josegirl dijo...

Hi mates! What about your week end?
Today, I am willing to reading the essay of English book because I have to desplay it tomorrow and I try to read only nine or ten times.....( it is a joke...or no?? )
What about your surgery Annie, I hope you are fine and I expect to see you tomorrow in class
see you

marta dijo...

Hi, I see your posts but I haven't been able to read them since I am helping my sister-in-law who has an outlet in her showroom. I am fagged! But I think that tonight I will be able to read and comment.

Paz dijo...

Hello, this is Paz and this is the first time I write in the blog.
My daughter is ill and I have no one to stay with her, so I think today I couldn´t go to the class, I am sorry Marta, I hope it won´t be a problem.
Bye

renata dijo...

hi everybody!
I'm still at work and I'm afraid I could't manage to get our class. I have to do something urgent and cannot ask for new favour from my mates. what a difficult situation for me always in a hurry...
I hope you'll have, jose, a very good exposition and I hope receveing from you the next pages'book.
I hope annie you're been feeling well after visiting the dentist ;-)
see you on wednesday (croosing my finger for not to appear a new problem)

Miguel dijo...

Excuse me teacher but I did not have time the last week to publish anything, but I try to publish something everyday since today.

annie dijo...

Hello mates!
my surgery was finally a little bit dificult and I am not as well as I thought... (my face it´s like a saucepan and have a lot of pains), today was impossible go to class, and I dont know about wednesday, but I will try if I am better..
Thanks for some of them who asked ;)
Today I can read, so I am reading some of the book. (which page we have to read now?)
xoxo

Sira dijo...

Hello Paz, Renata and Annie,

we have to read from page 63 to page 71 (first paragraph). Jose has done a very good exposition, very clear to understand and she has used a lot of new vocabulary. I'm not sure which exercises we have to do for next wednesday, because today we have done pages 12 and 13. So maybe we have to continue until the end of the unit.

Anónimo dijo...

You have made some decent points there. I checked on the net for more information about the issue and found
most people will go along with your views on this site.
My webpage - my computer is slow

marta dijo...

Sira, they are all fine. The truth is that your level is very good!

Annie, pull out my wisdom teeth.., that doesn't work either..., some of us like..,
No wonder you feel like that! The dentist is horrible and one gets very nervous. I would certainly feel like you. I hope everything has gone really well.

marta dijo...

Sira is very right!

Jóse, I am willing to do the exposition.., I have to do it..,
Well now that it is over you must be very pleased with yourself you did it very well!

marta dijo...

Paz, how nice that you've joimed us. I hope your daughter recovers quickly, she will, children get well quickly thank God. No problem
I won't be able to go to..,

marta dijo...

Renata, to get to the lesson.., I hope I'll receive the next book pages to read..,
Don't worry about your absence, I know you have difficulty and I wrote about what we talked but have not received an answer yet!! I am sorry, but don't worry come when you can for the moment and work at home. That is very important too.

marta dijo...

Miguel, please call me Marta, teacher sounds horrible and in English it is impolite, though of course not in Spanish and I don't take it so, but I hate being called teacher, we are not at school.
Don't worry about not having posted but it is very good for you to write every week, well done, you will improve.

marta dijo...

Annie, my face is like..,I am in great pain.., today it was impossible for me to go to the lesson.., thanks to those of you who sent your love and best wishes.., which page do we have to read up to?..,
I am very glad that it is over and that you are recovering well. You will be fine soon. Come when you feel up to it and please somebody tell Annie about the page, was it 94 in my book?

marta dijo...

Sira, you are a treasure! Thank you

By the way who is this anónimo? I would disregard his page I don't think he is one of us!

What do you think about the new pages? Mrs. Zapp is just unique, I think the conversation between her and Philip is just too much.

Vampi dijo...

How are you class? I hope all of you are ok.
I am better in this days, my face looks more normal , not like Quasimodo ( i felt so ugly the lats days).
I will return to the class the next monday , so please forgive me for not being very attentive to the forum.
Somebody can tell the homework, if i should make some exercises of the boring book or the workbook.
Is in Madrid the weather cold? Here, in my own town , we are living the frozen hell.
See you.

Merche dijo...

Hi !!!! Last week I went to the theater to see The Lion King Musical, and I like it very very much. I recommend it to everyone.
It´s fantastic!!!!

see you tomorrow

marta dijo...

Vampi, these days..,if I should do some... is the weather cold in Madrid?.., in a frozen hell..,
Well how nice to hear from you! So glad you are better and looking fine. Don't worry everything will go back to normal, but it is true that at the beginning one is horrified at the results.
I am sorry I can't help very much with the homework, but we have to continue with the boring book and up to page 83, in my book I think, for Monday.
It is rather cold here but there's no rain, I hear that in Santander it is raining a lot and it is cold and windy... as you say hell!

marta dijo...

Merche, I liked it very much..,
Thanks for the tip.

And who is the Anónimo? I fear it is a virus, don't go to the page just in case..

Sira dijo...

Hi Vampi,
how are you? I hope you feel better. The homework for next Wednesday is:

-Finish Unit 1. Next day, we are going to talk about the text on page 22. Bring the book also on Monday!

-Write a new essay (until 12th December at the latest). We have to write a complaint formal letter to Professor Zapp or P. Swallow. Imagine you are one of his students or a collegue from his Department.

Have a nice weekend!

Sira, thank you.
And is anybody able to get rid of this anónimo? What could we do?

pablo dijo...

I think that the only thing we could do about this "anonimo" is ignore him, or ask him/her to give it up, probably he is doing this because he is earnig money with the people who came in these web pages, so don´t entry in these web pages

Sira dijo...

Yes, that's the most intelligent.

marta dijo...

Pablo, who come..,
Yes, you are probably right, the best thing is to ignore him. But it is a bother...

josegirl dijo...

Hi mates! How are things?
First off all, I wanted to apologize because in the last days I hadn´t any time and I coudn´t read the last posts and I was pleased with your commentaries about my English exposition, thanks a lot!!!! for your great, fantastic, marvellous,plucky, wonderful, ...etc opinions ( Don´t forget Marta´s tip: English people use a lot adjectives....jeje)
I expected that you really liked I did it!!! instead of my mind slipped for some seconds and I got it in blanck ...) Thanks another time and specially to Sira and Marta
kisses
see you on Monday !

josegirl dijo...

Hi, my darlings...
Sorry a lot Marta but I had to leave the last class because I felt a little ill due to I had a headache, I thought it was flu.... and all it bothered me. In such a way, this week is being hard and complecated for me, I feel overloaded and I have no time for anything... I haven´t yet read the English pages!!!! and the worst thing is that this afternoon I celebrate a party in my house ( I can´t put off it!!! ) We are going to be join at least twelve people!!! or My God and I haven´t yet bought anything!!!!
I´m going to run some errands....

Ah!!! with respect for anonymous person....what person!, what anonymous! Simply don´t pay attention!!!!I suppose that some day he,she or it will get bored....

bye and kisses

Jóse, I expect that you really liked what I did.., except for the fact that my mind slipped.., and I went blank..,
Not at all, you did it very well!

marta dijo...

Jóse, I am very sorry Marta.., due to having a headache.. the flu and it all bothered me.., it is going to be at least 12 of us.., and as for the anonimous person..,
Well good luck Jóse there is nothing worse than having a party at home! No matter how enjoyable it is to host a party it meams a lot of work and then a lot of cleaning. I wish you the best of lucks.
Let's hope you are right about the anonymous person

josegirl dijo...

Hi my darling mates!!
What about your Saturday? Mine it has been quiet but I prefer it like this, after the party that I had last Thursday. I share my opinion with you ( Marta ) to be the party´s host it is simply horrible! In the end, we were "only" eleven people and they went at 12,30h at night and it took me two hours and therty minutes!!!to tidy up, to clean, to wipe, to washing up....etc, but the worst thing it was the floor; I had to sweep and to scrub two times! above all the kitchen´s floor I wasn´t able to get rid off stains!!!! But I bet you that I completly forgot my hadeache and flu because it was a marvelous, wonderful,great,cozy, amazing....etc (jeje, I remerber of your tip: to use a lot adjectives....) party. I will do it another time!!! despite I went to bed at three o´clock on overnight...

cheers

marta dijo...

Jóse, mine has been.., to be the party's host is.., it was only eleven of us.., to do the washing up.., the worst thing was the floor.
Don't use the double subject one is enough.!
.. the kitchen floor.., rid of the stains.., remember your tip.., despite having gone to bed at 3 in the morning..,
Congratulations, the party seems to have been a success, but it is a lot of work. Not everybody knows how much! It means a lot of buying carrying cooking decorating cleaning and then helping everyone to get everything, serving and entertaining. And then when everybody goes you have to clean everything, put it back in its place tidy etc. It is also expensive. It is very nice to have a party but I often think a restaurant saves a lot of work and trouble.
I have a very small house so all my parties are outside, it is a blessing!

marta dijo...

By the way how about Phillip's party? What do you think of that?

Begoña dijo...

I think Philip´s party is very strange. First they start with alcoholic drinks and after that they have dinner out of the house where they are celebrating the party...
The first meeting between Phillip and Mrs.Zapp is fun because she has drunk a lot. She is too happy with her husband far away from her. But on the other hand Phillip feels himself guilty to left his family behind, thinking his wife is alone, unhappy without him...
I hope next meeting will be better.

marta dijo...

Begoña, Philip feels guilty to have left his..
Yes it is true, no wonder he feels guilty because he seems to be having a lot of fun and the weather is fine, not like in England.
What I think is fantastic is the way in which Mrs Zapp gets drank and calls him Sparrow the whole time! It shows how the Engl and the Am act, so differently from each other...
I agree that it is funny how they have drinks at home and then dinner, I suppose it is because drinks are cheaper at home and dinner is a problem for so many people. The Yankees are practical

Miguel dijo...

I think the party and the conversation between Mrs Zapp and Mr Swallow is very funny. In my opinion the woman is a little absent-minded but with a lot of sense of humour.

Excelent the more I read the book, the more I enjoy it.

marta dijo...

Miguel, absent-minded? or positively drunk! I agree with you that the novel is getting better and better and I am glad you enjoy it.
Well done no mistakes!! Keep it up!

Hi everyone,

My name is Mayte. This is the first time I write. I think, it is very interesting and useful. But I don´t have time to do it, sorry. But I will try.

Marta, I think you have to block this person (anonimo), but blog administrator is the one who can do it. I will ask some friends who know about these matters.


Also, I write to recommend this webside: http://madridfree.com/
Free activities in Madrid. You can read information in English. I hope you enjoy.

Now somebody Greek?? This is torture!

Begoña dijo...

No it is not Greek. It is Russian
He/she posts a job advertisement to work in a restaurant. Really he/she wants to bother us.
When I was reading posts of the others class´s blogs at the beggining of that course, I saw anonymous posts written in Russian in a blog of 2010´s course.
Maybe the anonymous is the same person. He/she is bored from a long time ago.

Kun dijo...

Good nigh, I'm really tired. I need to rest. This long weekend will help. I hope next week I will have more strengh. I will need to give my best to face the end of the year. A lot of work and a lot of commitments.

marta dijo...

Begoña, the other classes' blogs..,
he has been bored for a long time..,
Yes, you are right, ha ha. I remember that it happened to us and that it was a... can't remember how they called it. Let's hope he stops in the end, please do not answer him.
I have bad news for you, José says no sorry. His class is full and he can't take any more. 12 people are on your same situation according to him. However he says he keeps asking in the class if anybody is leaving or would change groups and then he says he will tell me. I'm sorry..

marta dijo...

Kun, I hope you will recover, this long week-end is a very good one to rest and get ready for the end of the year as you say...

Begoña dijo...

Hi Marta.
I think you are wrong. I am not trying to change the class. Maybe you confused me with another student. I am happy with my group.
Have a good long weekend.

Begoña dijo...

...have a beautiful dreams in English.
Best wishes

marta dijo...

Begoña,havebeautiful dreams...
Yes you are right, sorry, the message was for Renata, she is can't make it to our class because of her work...
Thank you for telling me. I know who you are now! Happy dreams in Englishhhhhh

marta dijo...

Renata, this is to say that I am sorry but José has said impossible as his class is full.
But he says that he keeps asking if anybody wants to change and he will tell me. Ok? I am sorry. I have written a longer message to Begoña whom I confused with you, so if you want to read it, it is two posts before this one.

Sira dijo...

Hi Marta,

I want to ask you something. When I write a letter, which words must I count: all words which appear (including address and Sender and Addressee's names) or only that ones which appear on the body of the message? And what about the numbers?

Thank you.

Sira dijo...

Sorry,
every word which appears

Hi classmates,
I am very tired this weekend. I have to work both holidays. I do not think you know that I have a shop near the school and the schedule is a horror. We close at 9 pm. I have almost no free time. Furthermore, "in my state", every day I get more tired to be standing. I hope others can rest on this long weekend.

Thanks a lot Merche! for sending us these English notes, in my opinion they are very interesting and I am sure that they will be very usefull for us.
Unfortunatley Miguel, I won´t be able to stay with you for having a drink, I have another commitment...but you are very kind and I hope that there are more opportunities...
a huge hug for all!!!

josegirl dijo...

Hellow Marta, what about your week end? I hope you enjoy a lot!
I read another time my two last English redactions and I have some doubts: the verb to cramm: it takes with the preposition of or with?
Ej: Hospital are crammed of or with patients?
About the verb to devote you must use after (myself,themselves..etc)Ej: they devote themselves...? and next verb goes in gerundive? Ej: they devote themselves reading English...
Next words: outmoded = oldfashion?;
raves = critics??; the opposite of the verb to forbid, is to allow or to let???
Wich is the subjenctive of the verb to have?
In this ocassion I hope not to have written quite double subjects...It is clear that it has been my favourite mistake or at least in the previous week, but I don´t absolutley want to be bored, on the contray I would like to be original...and therefore I´ll try to change to another one for the next week...(jeje)
Thanks a lot for all Marta...
Kisses
see you

My children and me, we have spent all the afternoon making butter cookies/biscuits with different forms/shapes: christmast trees, rabbits, butterflies, hearts, stars, teddybears and dolls, we have had really fun!!

marta dijo...

Sira, only the content of the letter counts and the numbers you must count too if that is the part of the letter, ok?

marta dijo...

Susana, I watched it.., if you do watch it..,
Thank you Susana we'll tell you..

Elvira, I get more tired of standing..,
How awful, for you it must be really horrible to be standing all day and shops have horrifying times as they are open constantly. I admit this is good for clients but for those working in the shop..terrible. But you must resist as you want to work as long as possible so that you can be with the baby afterwards, don't you think?

marta dijo...

Jóse, I hope it has been fun.., you have put 4 verbs darling, be careful.., you are enjoying yourselves.., to have a drink.., another date..,
I hope that you've had a good weekend too. I've had a usual one going to the north and then back again. It rained the whole time, too..

marta dijo...

Jóse, you enjoyed yourself.., English compositions.., use the dictionary please.., cram does it go with?
It is very difficult to answer the question without a context, I would say that cram into is possible but I honestly don't know, withot the context.
Ah sorry now I have the context with is the one..,
They devote themselves to reading, that's it.
Old-fashion, critics, both. Too many questions!
..which is the subj.., I have and the past I had, we have to use the past but with the meaning of subjunctive.
On this occasion.., written double subjects..,but I don't want to be absolutely bored..
Welcome.

marta dijo...

Paz, my children and I have spent all.., we have had real fun.
Please don't give two options, it is better to make your own choice.
Cookies is an Am word.
What fun! I think children enjoy cooking a lot. It is a very English custom too

marta dijo...

Well and what do you think about the new pages??
Any comments?

Sira dijo...

Hi everyone,

I would like to comment something about the last pages. I found it really funny when the author describes the conversation between Zapp and Busby about Gordon Masters. And how difficult is for Zapp to reach him, because Busby runs more and more. About the new pages, I can't say anything at the moment.

Regards.

marta dijo...

Sira, how difficult it is for..,
I agree, the final meeting between Zapp and his English colleages is really funny! The English sporty the American not at all...

Begoña dijo...

I know we have to talk about the novel but I want to write two things about the last class...
Marta, thanks for tell us about the BBC serie "Pride and Prejudice" with Colin Firth. I didn´t Know the BBC serie but I have just seen "the lake scene" and it is great. Indeed I am looking forward to see the serie.
I watched the movie and I really loved it (Keira Knightley was succesful). Althought I always thought that the actor who plays Mr.Darcy role (Matthew Macfadyen) was not the best one, because his facial expressions was of a bitter man not for someone proud and haughty.
"Death at a Funeral" is the name of the English movie (not American) that Lara told us, but she didn´t remember its title. I saw it and it was really fun. And the main role is the same actor of Mr.Darcy movie, not the BBC serie.

Miguel dijo...

Yesterday, I did a comment in there,but obviously I should do it wrong because my comment is not in the page. Anyway I did not do the reading of the book yet, so I can not talking about it, but in my opinion is a good book, however I never hear nothing about the author. Also is great for me to understand each time a little bit more.

Andrés dijo...

Hi everybody,

I've just finished to read the last part of the book and I have been laughing imagining at Philip Swallow living his mistic experience with "sex and drugs".

I feel that little by little, the story is starting to mix the lives of the two professors and it transforms in a very interesting novel.

Enjoy your reading

Good night

Merche dijo...

Hi,

Begoña I agree with you and I think that I said in class too, that the BBC serie is really good to practice our listening and it is funny to sse it not only for Colin....jeje.
see you tomorrow.

marta dijo...

Begoña, for telling..,to watching.., gerund after prep,
the film.., although.., who plays Mr. Darcy.,.., and the leading actor is Colin Firth..,
I am so glad you liked it! But you have to watch the whole film, borrow it from the library it is superb! It is the best adaptation of a novel that I have seen.
And don't worry about not writing about the novel, it is good to practise writing so it is fine.
As I said I fell in love with Mr.Darcy at 14 and have spent half my life looking for him. I wonder if women like him because he was created by a woman, so he has everything that we like. In any case he is a favourite with everyone. You watch the film, in English and then we can talk about it in the blog.

marta dijo...

Miguel, I did it wrong..,I haven't read the book yet.., I cannot TALK, hey hey hey.., IT is a good book.., I have never heard anything about the author.., also IT is great for me..,
Don't forget the subject! and you have to study the verbs. If you haven't read the novel yet, talk about anything that you want, what you have done, etc. Write simply so that you begin to get the hang of it.

marta dijo...

Andrés, I finished reading.., imagining P.S. ..., and it is turning into a very..,
Yes, isn't it funny? As you say it is a mystic experience that he is living! Just imagine the guts to do it and what one realises is how easy it is for a man to lose his head when he is away from his normal enviroment! Specially if he is an inexperieced one.
What do the boys say to that? And the girls too for that matter. Do women lose their heads so easily?

marta dijo...

Merche, it is fun to see it..,
Yes you mentioned it and you are right, not only for Colin Firth, but he is an asset! When one reads about Mr. Darcy and falls in love with him and then you see him in body and soul... well it is quite something!

Paz dijo...

Marta, This afternoon I won´t be able to go to the class because I have to take my baby care (he is 4 years old but he is the last of my children and for me he is still my baby), my mum can not stay with him today and I am very sorry because I don´t like to be missing your class. I was going to give the essay to you today but I don´t know how. Maybe I could go to the school with my kid and give it to you before the class or maybe I could leave it in your letterbox in the school tomorrow morning that I have class of french, what do you think?.
On the other hand, I would like to say something about the book: Poor Philip!!ja, ja, he is living his new life like a teenager without responsabilities, don´t you think?.
See you next week.
Paz

Vicente dijo...

Hi Marta,

I don't see that he lose his head for only to participate in a hippy party like the one it is described in the novel. I think that he is only enjoy of the experience that it was run into him by chance. But this doesn't mean that he lose his head.

Marta, I am very sorry but at the end I could´t go to the school, because I had a business meeting and it last more than ussual; by the way, I´m working near to the academy, it only takes me ten minutes walking and for future ocassions, is it possible to come into the class eventhough was thirty minutes later? I don´t know to bother but like Paz I hate missing English classes.
Have a good week end!
kisses

Hellow Paz,
Nowadays, are you teaching French like me, aren´t you? I don´t know witch is your level, but I would like to talk to you about French´s "knowledges"....for exemple, tomorrow I have to speack to my class-mates about a French novel that I have just read, its tittle: La petite fille de Monsieur Lihn, written by Philippe Claudle, do you know it? Personally, I liked so much although it came about to sad but tender story...
By the way, if you need something or simply you have any questions about french grammar or anything else, I can lend you French books, notes and exercices.
See you

Today we have a fantastic class. It is very interesting to Know the others opinions. I enjoy too much the class. I think is an important item to talk. The life.
Perhaps the only matter that makes me think about living forever is the suffering,the regrets and the bads regards.
