Hello everyone!

                          As regards LAB 2 group just wanted to remind you that tomorrow the lesson will start at 15.20 but that before that there will be a so-called HELP lesson at 14.45! Remember this is not obligatory and is only for those people who are feeling a little out of their depth!

As regards content: we started looking at Phrasal Verbs today and took another look at the Present Perfect! (Do I hear cries of “Oh no.not again!!!” ) Don’t forget to practice those questions- remember “Practice makes perfect!!!”

For the ESP people- we started looking at the Rosetta Stone- its history, description, and how it is described in the British Museum Database!  Remember to study the key vocab!

  See you tomorrow!

    have a nice evening and think English!!

              Going to have a nice cuppa tea now!!!

                Any comments!!!

    AUTOR: Francesco Ciusa
    NAME: La madre dell’ucciso
    DATE :1906/07
    MATERIAL: BRONZE\GYPSUM
    LOCATION: GNAM Roma\ Comunal gallery Cagliari

    Francesco Ciusa was a sculptor. He was born in 1883 in Nuoro and he died in 1949 in Cagliari.
    In 1907 his sculpture, “la madre dell’ucciso”, was present at the “biennale” of Venice and it had a great success. The sculpture was made on bronze and is currently located in Rome at the GNAM, instead the plaster cast is located in Cagliari on the Comunal gallery.
    “La madre dell’ucciso” is an old woman who has lost her son who was killed. We can see her pain in her face and in her position selected by the sculptor.

      Hi Valeria,
      Great work. Just note a couple of minor corrections!

  5. Hello teacher,

    I mentioned a Jethro Tull’s song when I asked you about the verb “to use”…

    This is the song on issue: “We used to know” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sJA_VF5c7U)

    For example, could I write a sentece like this: We are used to consider Cagliari like a chaotic city, but instead… (Siamo soliti ritenere Cagliari come una città caotica, ma invece…).

    • Hi Obler ,
      You’re confusing “used to + infinitive without to” with “be used to + V+ing”
      I used to live in Ca. is an alternative for saying “I lived in CA.” in other words somehting we did in the past (action or a state) which is probably no longer true.
      When I was a child I used to go to church on Sundays!
      Negative : I didn’t use to like!
      Questions :Did you use to live in Quartu?

      I’m used to making my bed every morning – to doing my homework with the TV on- etc
      Are you used to living on your own?
      I’m not used to having lots of money to spend!
      This example means – you are accustomed to do something, that you do it often!
      Hope this helps!
