You really enjoyed creating your heroes and here are some of them:

And this is the song we had to listen to all the time while you were at it.
Would you like to know its lyrics?:

Happy Carnival!

Just a couple of issues that came up in different groups, ...:
1ºESO C: PORCUPINE PIE by Neil Diamond.
Well, I've found this parody,
but with the real song, so it'll do:

Porcupine Pie, Porcupine Pie, Porcupine Pie
Vanilla Soup, a double scoop please.... No
Maybe I won't, maybe I will, maybe I'll have
the tutti fruit, with fruity blue cheese
Ah but Porcupine Pie, Porcupine Pie, Porcupine Pie
don't let it get on your jeans
And though it sounds a little strange but
you gotta eat it with gloves or your hands will turn green
Ah but porcupine pie, porcupine pie, porcupine pie
weaves its way through my dreams
I do believe I'm gonna try some and
leave enough room for dessert, the chicken ripple ice cream.

And 1ºBac A: this is the silly (debatable, I know) but funny film "Burn after reading".
At least the Coen Brothers have some excellent films, that's undebatable, ...:

How long, 1ºBac!

Some activities for 1ºESO...

Hi! Apart from finishing the activities in last week's entry,
you can also ... visit this entry from last year for more exercises
and in this other one you can see a couple of videos
where The Simpsons and Road Runner tell you
about the Present Continuous (or Progressive).

And Talking about The Simpsons and Shops...
Watch this clip where Marge is doing some shopping:

And test how well you can understand it HERE.
For those of you "extra-fast": yet another listening task, a song: This is me
(This is a real treat for you since I'm not at all keen on Camp Rock myself!)
