A Sandwich with Mr Bean




I hope you don't prepare your sandwiches like him... but now we are going to revise food vocabulary and instructions to do so thanks to esl-galaxy.com.
First have a look to these useful words and think if you need them to describe the story:
hot water bottle, sneeze, spices, spin, surface, take out, overcoat
Then remember to use time expressions to link the story:
first, second, third, next,then finally



Countries and Nationalities




The word 'Nationality' is not often used in spoken English. It is a formal and official word and it appears more frequently in written English. You will find the word 'Nationality' is used a lot in the travel industry and for immigration.

We almost never say: What is your nationality?
We usually say: Where are you from? OR Where do you come from?
To tell someone your nationality you DON'T say: My nationality is Spanish.
You say: I'm Spanish

As we are revising the names of counries and nationalities, here you can find a complete list of them.
But now let's play some games:

Game 1: Match the cards
Game 2: Complete the blanks

And if you want to print a poster with some popular nationalities and flags here you are, thanks to islcollective.

Urban Dictionary


Last week, talking about urban tribes we found this espression 'indie scenester', we didn't know how to translate it, but now we can solve our doubts in this web page. Have a look on it and find out other tribes.

Indie Scenester is someone who is a mix between the following:
Typical Indie Kid:
-likes V necks
-shops at american apparel and thrift stores
-wide vocabulary
-skinny jeans
-thick glasses
-artsy
-long bangs that are side swept
-try to be original

Scene Kid;
-teased hair in bright colours
-likes to be CRAZY!
-says things like "niggah" "thnxkaibai" and "Rawr!"
-likes kiddy things like hello kitty,dinosaurs robots
-Dark makeup and false lashes
-bright and fun

Indie Sceneter (can be any mix but here's an example)
-artsy
-crazy
-wears v-necks
-likes screamo but NOT indie music
-loves hello kitty
-HATES teasing there hair.

you may find indie scenesters that love some scene things and hate others and that love some indie things and hate others...it depends
