Do you remember a really good night out? Click here to listen to an interview with me about a memorable night I had. Click here to download the questions.

Now it’s Fileyour turn.  Study the irregular verbs first from unit 7 and think about your answers to the same questions. Why don’t you do these exercises from the English File coursebook website to practise?

Now click here and answer my questions.  I give you time to answer so there is a pause after the questions.


There are some aspects that you have to take into account if you want to write good stories. First of all, you have to know how, and this presentation can help you with it.

Another important question is the verb tenses that we are going to use. Which tenses are more appropriate for a story? Check the following slideshow to find out.

Today I’m posting two videos about pronunciation that I’ve found on a website called Elemental English.

This is the video we saw in class, it contains a clear explanation of how these endings are pronounced. Remember that pronunciation is very important if you really want to improve your speaking skills. You can also read a lesson here, it belongs to the same website.


A similar rule applies for plurals and third person singular endings. Watch this video to learn them. You can also visit the author’s website to see the written lesson that pairs this video.

Hi, everybody. Last year in this same month a published an entry about Narrative tenses. Today I would like to remind you of the presentation found on that post and, at the same time, add you a link to improve your knowledge of these tenses.

As you know, our book New English File Upper-Intermediate includes online activities to review what we see in class. Here I leave you the link to work on narrative tenses. Why don’t you try and check what you’ve learned.


Narrative tenses are those tenses we talk to about the past, i. e., Past Simple, Past Continuous, Past Perfect simple and Past Perfect Continuous.

If you want to know how and when you can use them, just check the presentation below.
