I know you love the wonderful world of prepositions. So do I. Well, I’ve found these two wonderful presentations about the prepositions we have to deal with and I would like to share them with you. They appear in the web Slideshare, a place where you can find all kinds of slideshows or presentations about different topics. You can also upload your own presentations and share them with the world. I was going to preper a presentation for you, but then I remembered this wonderful site and found them ready for me.

After watching the presentations, you can also practise with some online activities like the ones you can find in the site English as a Second Language, where you can also find great explanations. Here, in the site Eslpartyland you also have more online activities on prepositions.

All this information, apart from you can find in your grammar book and in your coursebook, should be enough for you not to have problems with these prepositions anymore. Bye!

Check after the slideshows because there are even more online activities you can do at home.


If you’re confused about all the uses of ‘will/won’t’, then here’s some extra practice.  First of all, look at this Powerpoint about offers, promises and decisions and guess what the sentences are.

You can do some followup activities here and here  from the book English File Third Edition.

Now look at these exercises from the Oxford New English File Pre-intermediate website.  Click here and here to practise ‘will’ for offers, promises and decisions, and here and here to practise will/won’t for predictions.

And for the best promise made in a film, here’s Whitney Houston singing, ‘I Will Always Love You‘ in ‘The Bodyguard‘.

Of course, my main objective in life is being happy, so I’d rather be poor and happy than rich and sad. What about you?

If you want to answer to this question and to some other questions of the same kind, I encourage you to visit the site Yourather.com, where you can answer to lots of interesting and unusual questions and see what others have answered too.

And for some grammar practice, just visit the New English File site, where you have an online activity.


As you already know, there’s no lesson next week. So I guess you  might find time to revise the contents we’ve seen so far. As you know, the book New English File has a website which contains activities for all the aspects seen in each file. Below you can see what I’m talking about. Just click on the image and do the online activities. Remember that we’ve seen Files 1-3. Enjoy your carnival.

This is my last discovery, a pronunciation dictionary where words are pronounced by native speakers. It includes all kinds of words, even proper names and it includes words in many different languages.

Do yo know more dictionaries like this one?


Today’s listening activity is a big difficult, but it’s quite fun and worth a try. Please read the questions carefully, at least twice, and then play the recording twice. You can leave your results in the comments section.

Activity:  Dating Woes

You can find more activities like this one at Randall’s ESL Cyber Listening Lab, and even more under our page “resources”>”links“.
