Yesterday was a beautiful day in Sydney. You could already smell spring in the air. I went to one of the most iconic beaches this city offers, Balmoral Beach. There were people swimming, sunbathing and sitting under the huge fig trees that line the promenade along the beach. The cafes and restaurants were full and it was only Monday! If you have never been there, make sure you go and have a walk, a picnic or a swim. Every summer there is a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream , Twelfth Night or The Taming of the Shrew at the Band Rotunda on The Esplanade opposite Balmoral Beach. Who wrote these very famous plays?

Congratulations to Svieta, Winnie, Cindy, Jin (I couldn't see the photo) on their voicethread slide shows. Check all your classmates' voicethreads:

Marta, Eva, Lisa, Summer, Svieta, Winnie, Cindy and Jin.

  • Write a quiz for all the slide shows your classmates or Marion's classmates have created. Each one of you has to look at 2-3 slides shows by your classmates and write at least 2 questions for each one of them. You are also allowed to ask 1 or 2 questions from your own slides. For example: Who says ..... Where did ..... go last ...? Who took a photo of....? Email me your questions and we'll put them together in our wiki fro the Liverpool students.

  • Continue working on your webquest and look at the notes I added on how t write a report or information text.
  • Forum: Go to ESOL forum and quickly add a topic or two to talk about.
  • Go to our other forum and read the latest topic that Marion set up for her class. It is very interesting, they discuss women's and men's roles and jobs. Read what her students wrote and add your opinion.

I decided to get rid of the snaphots as they were very disrupting. I've got too many links and I think it made the uploading of the pages slower.

Hello everybody
Williams Shakespeare wrote 37 plays. These are usually divided into three types - comedies, tragedies and histories. The Comedies aren’t always funny,
but they do have good endings that are happy. His most famous comedies
include A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Twelfth Night or The Taming of the Shrew. I agree with you Rosa Last sunday was a beautiful day in Sydney.
