Disi? Dalney?

Every year there are students in my classes who are extreme Disney fans. Not once have I come across a Dali fan. Maybe this will help?

Now we just need to have a collaboration with Miyazaki Hayao.


Doodles, roots, and shoots

Yesterday was Earth Day, and the Google Doodle celebrated the life and work of Jane Goodall:

Learn about Roots & Shoots, Goodall’s program for young people to

foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs, and to inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for people, other animals, and the environment.” (from the About page)

You can watch other Google Doodles, and choose different countries/languages:


Chocolate ears

I found this video on a post from Youngzine about chocolate and Valentine’s Day. Youngzine is a good source of reading and watching/listening material — mostly about news & current events —  for EFL students of any age, though the specified target audience is native English speaking children.

The video has a couple of funny subtitle mistakes. Listen and see if you can correct them.
