SPEAKING TEST 2 _1st BTO_(Based on TRENDS 1_Burlington)

1 extra speaking practice



1 Describe the picture. Use the topic vocabulary to help you.




1. What do you see in the photograph?
2. What do you think happened?
3. How useful do you think dogs are in this kind of situation?
4. What might happen next?
5. What would you do and how would you feel if you were faced with an emergency situation?

Discussion.Answer the following questions.
1. Would you be interested in taking a course teaching life-saving skills?
2. What do you think you would learn in such a course?
3. What kinds of natural disasters are most common in your country?
4. What kinds of man-made disasters are common?


Possible answer:
In the photograph, we can see several rescue workers with dogs. A building seems to have been badly damaged – possibly by an earthquake or maybe by a terrorist bomb. The rescue workers might use the dogs to help find survivors. These rescue dogs get special training – they use their sense of smell and hearing to find survivors who are trapped under the destroyed building. It’s possible the dogs will find survivors and then the rescue workers will have to find a way to reach them and get them out. I’m not sure what I’d do if I were faced with an emergency situation – I’d probably be terrified!

2 extra speaking practice



1 Describe the picture. Use the topic vocabulary to help you.
1. Who are the people and what is their relationship to each other?
2. What are they doing?
3. Where do you think they are going?
4. How might travelling by car affect their journey?
5. Would you enjoy travelling with friends?


 Ask and answer the following questions.
1.  Have you ever travelled to a new place?
2.  Where did you go and who did you go with?
3.  How long did you stay there?
4.  What did you do while you were there?
5.  Was it a positive or negative experience? Explain.

Possible answer:
This is a photograph of a group of friends. They could be two couples or just four friends.They have got luggage and are about to get into a car so I guess they’re going on a trip somewhere together. It’s hard to say what their destination is. Perhaps they are going abroad – but they might also be taking a trip in their own country. Travelling by car can make a big difference to a trip. For a start, you can be a lot more spontaneous because you don’t have to make reservations on buses and trains. Also, it’s easier to get to more remote destinations with a car. I think I’d really enjoy travelling this way with a group of friends.

1   Possible answer:
   In this picture, we can see a group of people at a birthday celebration. It looks like they’re an extended family. The people at the head of the table are older and they look like the grandparents. The other people are all different ages, some are young children and there are teenagers and adults. A child is holding a cake with candles and everyone is looking at the grandmother, so it is probably her birthday. I love large family gatherings on holidays and festivals.I really get along well with my cousins so I enjoy any opportunity to get together with them. Also, it gives me a chance to spend time with my grandparents.

4 extra speaking practice


1 Describe the picture. Use the topic vocabulary to help you.
  1. Who are the people in the picture? 
  2. Where are they? 
  3. What do you think the three friends are talking about? 
  4. How do you think the girl sitting alone feels? 
  5. How should the girl deal with this situation? 
2 Answer the following questions.
  1. What experiences of bullying have you had? 
  2. What kind of person is a bully? 
  3. How can the use of social media make bullying worse? 
  4. What can schools do to help deal with bullies? 
  5. Do you think bullying should be made a crime? Explain. 

Possible answer:
In the picture, we can see four teenagers – they look like students in a classroom. One is a girl who is sitting alone at a desk. She looks like she’s doing schoolwork. The others – two boys and a girl – are sitting at another desk. They seem to be talking about the girl who’s alone. They look like they’re gossiping about her. The girl is probably feeling left out and she looks quite sad. The other three look like they’re enjoying themselves. It’s difficult to deal with this kind of situation. Sometimes it helps to ignore the bullies but if that doesn’t work, there are online forums to help or you might have to tell someone – a friend, a teacher or a parent.

Frankenstein






Victor Frankenstein thinks he has found the secret of life. He takes parts from dead people and builds a new 'man'. But this monster is so big and frightening that everyone runs away from him - even Frankenstein himself! The monster is like an enormous baby who needs love. But nobody gives him love, and soon he learns to hate. And, because he is so strong, the next thing he learns is how to kill ...



THE CREATION

FIRST MINUTES IN LIFE:-"WHAT HAVE I DONE?"_VIKTOR FRANKENSTEIN.


THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU, ALL THEY SEE IS SCARS....SINGERS:SIXX:AM: SONG

"Skin"

Paint yourself a picture
Of what you wish you looked like
Maybe then they just might
Feel an ounce of your pain

Come into focus
Step out of the shadows
It's a losing battle
There's no need to be ashamed

'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angel
Living in your heart

Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you've got
That you are not your skin

Oh [2x]

When they start to judge you
Show them your true colors
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you

Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They're the ones that stand to lose

'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angel
Living in your heart

Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you've got
That you are not your skin

Oh

Well, they don't even know you
All they see is scars
And they don't see the angels
Living in your heart

So, let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you've got
That you are not
You are not your skin

Oh [2x]

THE MATRIX


MOVING ON: "THE WORLD'S A STAGE"



THE COMPANY: 
MOVING ON 
THE PLAY:
"ALL THE WORLD IS A STAGE"

All the world's a stage,
and all the men and women merely players:
They have  their exits and their entrances;
and one man in his time plays many parts.
– William  Shakespeare.

In a theatre hall  somewhere in Britain the  audience and the press are queuing to see the latest production of the oldest  and most famous theatre company in Britain; The Royal Shaky Pier  Theatre Company. Once seated they are witnesses to a short piece which is not exactly what one would expect from this prestigious company. While the members of the audience express their confusion, disagreement and anger at the deception, a journalist reports the whole event and broadcasts the scene live.


En una sala de  teatro en algún lugar de Gran Bretaña, el público y la prensa hacen cola para ver el último espectáculo de la compañía más antigua y famosa de Reino Unido; The Royal Shaky Pier Theatre Company. Una vez sentados, los asistentes son testigos de una pieza corta que no es exactamente lo que se esperaba de esta compañía de tanto prestigio. Mientras el público muestre su confusión, desacuerdo y enfado por el engaño, un periodista se dedica a documentarlo todo y transmitir la escena en directo. 



When the workers  and technicians of the company enter the stage they find themselves in front of  a demanding audience and a journalist who is searching for an explanation for  what has happened and refunds and compensation for the audience. Finding  themselves in the situation and with no way of talking to management, the  technicians will try and resolve their crisis through a parallel story which  will involve everyone in the world of theatre, work and the search to fulfill  personal dreams.

Cuando los  técnicos y obreros de la compañía acceden al escenario se encuentran ante un público exigente, y un periodista que quiere explicaciones por todo lo sucedido y compensaciones por los daños y perjuicios causados. Ante tal situación, y sin la posibilidad de hablar con sus jefes, los obreros intentarán salir de su particular crisis a través de una historia paralela que involucrará a todos en el mundo del teatro, el trabajo y la búsqueda de los sueños.

Comical, musical, easy to follow and with situations  of current significance treated with great humour, “All the World´s a Stage“ is  a show that reminds us that the world is indeed a stage and all of us merely  players.


Cómica,  musical, fácil de seguir y con situaciones de mucha actualidad tratadas con gran  humor, “All the World´s a Stage“ es una obra que nos recuerda que el mundo es de verdad  un escenario y todos nosotros meros actores. 


Por cuarto año consecutivo 282 alumnos del IES San Fernando de Badajoz asistieron a la representación y acogieron la propuesta de la actividad con gran entusiasmo.A las 8:15h , después de que los profesores de los dos edificios del instituto pasaran lista en las respectivas aulas, los alumnos se desplazaron hacia el centro de la ciudad cruzando el puente de la Autonomía.Caminaron los 1'8 Km que separan ambos centros en apenas 25 minutos. La actividad duró aproximadamente 70 minutos y varios alumnos del centro salieron al escenario actuando actores en la obra. El regreso se llevó a cabo de modo ordenado y tranquilo.A las 11:10h los alumnos estaban listos en sus aulas para la siguiente clase con una sonrisa de satisfacción.También los profesores, que agradecen el excelente comportamiento de todos los alumnos asistentes.La compañía felicitó al centro por el saber estar,la espontaneidad,colaboración y participación de todo el público. 



Los temas del material didáctico son:

 “El Teatro“ y “El Trabajo“.
Las canciones de  la obra son:
  The World´s A Stage
  Reap What  You Sow
  Remember
  Moving On 
 You Can Do  Anything If You Want To

MOVING ON: " WITH A LITTLE BIT OF LUCK"

LA ACTIVIDAD:
Unos 300 alumnos de 1º, 2º, 3º, 4º de ESO y 1º de Bachillerato del IES San Fernando de Badajoz asistieron el viernes 16 de marzo de 2012 , por segundo año consecutivo , a la representación de la obra "With A Little Bit of Luck". Tuvo lugar en el CPR de la misma localidad. El trayecto desde el instituto hasta el CPR se hizo a pie , disfrutando de un día muy agradable y de una mañana tranquila aunque el pronóstico meteorológico había amenazado con algo de lluvia.

LA REPRESENTACIÓN:
La compañía MOVING ON,al igual que en la anterior ocasión, ofreció un espectáculo divertido y sorprendente, de aproximadamente una hora de duración , donde los propios alumnos fueron protagonistas en algunas escenas. Harry , dueño de un hotel al borde de la quiebra , supersticioso y optimista a la vez , idea la manera de sacar a su hotel de esa situación desesperada.

AGRADECIMIENTOS:
Los miembros del Departamento de Inglés , organizadores de la actividad , y la Educadora Social del centro, acompañante, desean agradecer a todos los alumnos asistentes la puntualidad , el orden , la buena conducta cívica , el respeto , participación y educación que demostraron desde el primer momento hasta el regreso al centro. Especial agradecimiento merecen todos los alumnos que accedieron a salir al escenario y nos hicieron pasar tan buen rato:
-Blanca Sánchez-Cortés
-Suna García
-Tomás Franco
-Manuel Pichoto
-Javier Pino
-Antonio Soto
