  Reading experiences

Hi peeps!!How are you doing? This time I'm here to talk about reading experiences. All of us meet someone in life who loves reading books. This kind of guys who are always looking for new books and spend hours and hours reading just for pleasure.Wow that's fantastic!!Definitevely, I'm not one of them. However that doesn't mean that I haven't read any books. I've also had my humble reading experiences.My first book was "Mujercitas" when I was young. Then it came "Las puertas de Anubis"both of them in Spanish.

When I was teenager I enjoyed reading comics such as Batman and Darkness.

Later in the training college I continued reading. Many time I could enjoy doing it.Books like Harry Potter and To kill a mockingbird were my favourite. I've also read Matilda, Treasure Island, Animal Farm and I'm sure that I've forgotten to name some of them. 
if you love books📕,
read them
otherwise
 you can watch a film📺.

Variety

I haven't read too many books outside my school life... The same happened during my years in the training college. The book which I enjoy reading was 'To kill a Mockingbird'. Thus, when a few years ago the second part of the story was released, I ran to the local library to read it. 

But this time, I read it in Spanish.  An interesting fact about this book is that the writer had written the second part before than 'To kill a Mockingbird', but for some reason it wasn't published until 2015. Spoiler! Scout comes back to her hometown and her relationship with Atticus has changed.

Another book which called my attention was 'Caballo de Fuego' written by the argentinian writer Florencia Bonelli. Even though it's a love story, I enjoyed it because I liked the writer's style. The story is about an argentinian doctor who falls in love with an arabic man who made his fortune thanks to wars.  The story is a trilogy and each book is set in three different cities: Paris, Congo and Gaza. 

Now, I'm reading 'The Great Gatsby' which I love ❤  Even though it's for the training college, I like the story because it has nice quotes...








I'm planning to read 'Propanga' by Edward Bernays. A colleague was reading it and it called my attention. Basically, this man explains his techniques to sell things to people, and to make them believe that they need them.

Maybe you know him or not.Anyway,I tell you he was the singer of the Doors and also wrote many poems.He's one of the most iconic frontmen in rock music history. I love him . I hope you enjoy the poem. ;) Noelia


Midnight
criminal metabolism of guilt forest
Rattlesnakes whistles castanets

Remove me from this hall of mirrors
This filthy glass

Are you her
Do you look like that
How could you be when
no one ever could
~~~

Poet of the call-girl storm

She left a note on the bedroom door.
“If I’m out, bring me to.”
~~~

I dropped by to see you
late last night
But you were out
like a light
Your head was on the floor
& rats played pool w/your eyes

Death is a good disguise
for late at night

Wrapping all games in its calm garden

But what happens
when the guests return
& all unmask
& you are asked
to leave
for want of a smile

I’ll still take you then
But I’m your friend.

If you don't like so much poetry ↑🔺, here you have a nice song "People are strange". Have a nice week!! Noelia

What makes a good teacher?

As this year I may finish the English Teacher Training College, I feel that it's time to reflect on what type of teacher am I? Or what type of teacher I would like to be? I must confess that I'm a bit bossy but also friendly.
This year, I started working at secondary school. At the beginning I was worried but then I started enjoying it. My students are nice (I'm lucky!) and I enjoy talking about their future careers and give them advice.
In my moments of reflection, I've found this interesting article of Unicef called 'What makes a good teacher?' 500 children from 50 countries gave their opinion on what they consider what a good teacher is. Do you wanna know the answer?
Check it yourself!

Hi there!!Today I bring an article for you about How to manage bad behaviour in the classroom.Have you ever dealt with a disruptive student?Have you wondered whether your reaction was the correct one or not?I almost sure you have.
 I think there is not a recipe to cope with bad behaviour but we have to keep in mind different strategies to use when we need it.I hope it'll be useful for you😉 Noelia

 Hi there! I think that studying for exams can be stressful. I find it quite difficult to stay focused on what I'm reading. So. it's important to prepare summaries in advance. Walking around my house while repeating the information is very useful for me, and I exercise at the same time ha ha...
I share with you some tips for the following exams. DON'T PROCRASTINATE!
Dai.
