Last Friday, the computer let us down. It might have been the computer was on a Halloween mood,playing tricks on us. We did not manage to watch “Nightmare before Christmas”, which Núria, your Art teacher,wanted us to do. Anyway, I was quite happy with the class. It worked very well and you learnt a lot. In no time, you’ll be able to write film reviews (even in English). Also, in our next outing, you may want ask tourist about their favourite film, or whether they have seen any Spanish films they realy liked.
By the way, I’m looking forward to seeing your art work. Will your imagination work full speed after Halloween night?
What will Sally and Jack’s offspring be like? … We’ll find out before Christmas and the result will
probably be nightmarish!
Here you have a handout that will help you talk about films. Download it and bring it to class. If your printer does not work, you can copy it in your notebook.
