B1/B2 students: LEARN ENGLISH WITH TV SERIES

You might like to try this YouTube Channel, which has lessons based on short clips from TV series like Modern Family or Friends.

HECTOR-1

extr@ English…

promises language learning with laughter, in an authentic London setting. With 30 hilarious, half-hour sitcom programmes, the extra@ series is a delight for anyone learning English, especially young adults. The adventures of the four main characters in their London flat are stylish and funny.

The programmes feature lively, colloquial English dialogue. The characters speak naturally, but clearly with constant repetition and use of visual prompts (subtitles) that help learners without detracting from the storyline. The series follows a syllabus in line with the aims of modern EFL curricula, practicing functions and structures suitable for intermediate level learners.

C1 – WACKY SPORTS – LIKE CHEESE ROLLING IN COOPER’S HILL

The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake

CHEESE1

Most of you will have heard about this annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper’s Hill, near Gloucester in England. It is traditionally by and for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth, but now people from all over the world take part. The Guardian called it a “world-famous event”, and indeed, in 2013, a 27 year old American and a 39 year old Japanese each won one of the four races. The event takes its name from the hill on which it occurs.

Two possible origins have been proposed for the ceremony. The first says that it evolved from a requirement for maintaining grazing rights on the common.

The second proposal suggests pagan origins. It CHEESE2is thought that bundles of burning wood were rolled down the hill to represent the birth of the New Year after winter. Connected with this belief is the traditional scattering of buns, biscuits and sweets at the top of the hill by the Master of Ceremonies. This is said to be a fertility rite to encourage the fruits of harvest.

HERE IS THE 2013 EVENT:
