Another school year has passed, and there are many things that we learned. As a final project, I have to do a little review of what I did during my english course. I will explain what I did and how I did it, and finally I’ll conclude with my personal opinion.
The first project I did was an introduction about myself. I used two web sites in order to publish my work on internet, they were:
In both web sites you have to open an account an once you have one, you can start uploading things.
With blogger you can publish many things such as writings, videos, recordings and pictures and with the second one you can upload pictures, edit them and embed them in your blog.
I really liked this project as an introduction of each member of the english course. It was very dynamic our presentation, using internet as a educative tool.
The second project was something similar to the previous project but this time it was presentation about my family and I used also some photos to illustrate. I used the same web sites, blogger and slideshow, in order to upload my work on internet. I think , those projects were useful to our teacher because she could realise what our english knowledge was. The project was easy and fun, and helped ourselves to catch the way to use blogger correctly. So that, I started publishing several things without they were for duty or school work, but for the simple reason that was interesting and fun.
Let’s continue with the third project we did, this time we used a different tool. We had to do a kind of presentation of an specific topic.
I did it about hemorrhages, what to do and what not to do if you face these situation.
The benefits of this web site are that you can upload pictures, write a little bit about the topic and record your explanations:
I found very useful this web site because as I said before, you can do several things and then embed it on your blog.
It is another educative tool, not only for the english seminar, you can use it to make class exhibitions of any topic you want. In this project I recorded myself talking english for first time. I felt a little bit strange but it was useful to improve my speaking fluency.
All saints day, this was the topic for our fourth project which consisted in making a report about the celebration of the Day of the Death.
We had to search for information about this celebration and we also had to take photos of the celebration at school and make a video.
The web sites we used were:
I published my research in my blog and I uploaded some photographs that I had taken and a video I’d film in the Diego Rivera’s Museum.
I think my investigation was too long but I really enjoyed doing it, because I had to translate several things and I learned many words.
December came up and for that reason we did a Christmas card using:
In my opinion this was more for fun than for learning, but anyway I knew another web site that could be useful for other things.
In that Christmas card we had to put a message related to the Christmas holiday and New Year and decorate it with pictures that we wanted.
I put one of my family and the other ones of a japanese cartoon known as Inuyasha. I chose them because the characters were dressed like Santa Claus and there was a snowy weather and a snowman.
The next project we did was about our Christmas Holidays, we had to write what we did during our vacations, where did we go and for that we created a blog and there we publish our review.
I only used two web sites, which were:
I liked this activity maybe because I liked my holiday trip, I went to Xochitepec with some friends, and I really enojed it.
I think this activity was useful to keep improving our vocabulary and english knowledge as well as our speaking skills.
All this projects and activities were a duty of our English seminar but anyway I did published some other things. I wrote some paragraphs from songs, that give us a message. I published some images and also a German song that I found on through surfing on internet, which name is Augenblick that in english means “Moment”. d This was what I published in my blog and the review of all the activities that my teacher left me. The rest were made at the school in the classroom, with my classmates. I’ll mention them in the following pages. d
