Here’s a short video project made after a series of English lessons on practical grammar. Its aim was to illustrate the use of some present and past tenses. The project was participated by 2nd form students of Wojciech Korfanty High School in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Poland.

We hope you’ll enjoy the video. Have fun watching!

‘English Cafe’ class at McDonalds 3 November 2013

“Sir, there’s a special offer for free coffee at McDonald’s. Why don’t we go and have a class over a nice cup of coffee?” said Justyna after I had asked what else we could do to make our ‘English cafe’ classes even more fun.

‘English cafe’ classes are those conversation lessons where nobody can speak a single word in Polish. I usually prepare handouts with Q&A activities and discussion topics but, generally, you can speak freely about anything and to anyone, provided you’re speaking English. And you can have something to drink – after all it’s supposed to be a cafe.

Justyna’s suggestion was excellent and so we went out of school on Tuesday morning and headed for McDonald’s. The weather was excellent and so were the students’ moods. On the spot I gave them handouts with questions concerning ‘personality’ and ‘change’ – to be discussed over free coffee.

Some students documented the field trip with their smartphones or tablets, using the Animoto application which I’d asked them to install. I hope you will enjoy the video made by Krzysiek Gołębiowski as much as we all enjoyed our ‘English Cafe’ class at McDonalds!

What scares the hell out of you…?

What frightens you to death…?

Watch the video with your eyes wide open
and your heart pounding…

You’ll turn as white as a ghost
and you will shake like a leaf…

But if you’re brave enough
and you will learn all about fear…

Happy Halloween!
