Level V final Presentation

Hello! We just finished our level V Intensive course and here we have the slideshow of our final presentation projects. The theme of the projects were countries, Venezuela's cities and states. The best project was about Costa Rica... the most interesting thing we learned was that Costa Rica doesn't have an army... good for them... love and peace (my new friend diggerstorys sent me this link). It was a good show and we enjoyed sharing with other students.

One of my students Jhon is from Merida, he brought some food and drinks from his hometown on his last trip back home. We had the chance to try some kind of drink made with fruits and alcohol. It was clear that they were for a cold weather. They taste really strong and we felt warm inside really fast. You can see Jhon in the slideshow. He's the tall youngman wearing a "ruana".

The presentation about "La Sierra de Perija" was especially interesting. We learned a little bit more about it from people who actually live there. They told us about their problems with the "guerrila", housing, food ......"Parrilla de mono" is one of their favorite dishes and their festivities.

Well, got to go now.. Here you have the slide show of the presentation. Enjoy it.

Blogging and Podcasting!

Well, Blogging and Postcasting! Two wonderfull ways of practicing and sharing. I registered two these courses offered by Electronic Village Online Jan-Feb 2006. I'm learning about Blogging with my dear friend Susanne Nyrop at blog06 · COLLABORATIVE BLOGGING IN ESL/EFL. There we are examining and comparing several current blogging tools and how they could be put to use with ESL/EFL learners. We are also considering how to use multimedia content, such as audio recorded voice messages, podcasts, photos and videos. How exciting!

I also registered at a Podcasting course at Podcasting for ELT "A Hands-on workshop in how to podcast, what tools to use, and applications in ESOL. Although the workshop is suitable for total beginners (no prior knowledge of podcasting is expected), educators with experience are also encouraged to join us in discussion and debate to help develop the potential of this exciting new medium" Begginers they say...... well, count me in. I'm learning a lot.

I'll try to write more about what I'm learning since this is my playground!
Keep on shining and sharing!
