Module 5 Total English

Hello, everybody:

It is a cloudy afternoon and here I am in front of the screen, surfing the net, looking for activities to offer you.

I love reading because when I read my imagination flies  entering a virtual world. You have read three stories so far, haven´t you? You are supposed to read "Telling Stories" by Maeve Binchy.

I have never heard of her before :(  Here is a link to her home page where you can read about this author (LINK).

Activity ONE: surf the Mave's website and answer  in comments: Is she confident with technology. How can you contact her? 


Tired of reading? Do you want to practise listening? 
Here are Maeve's Audio books

Activity TWO : Write in comments which audio book you  chose, give a reason and tell us if you found it easy or difficult to understand.

Optional Activity:let's create a community-powered encyclopedia for our friends, classmates and book lovers. Which online tool shall we use? 

How? it is very simple : Go to  and take a tour. Then get registered and upload the books you have read, are reading and/or are planning to read. If you open an account in Shelfari, let me know and I will add you to my contact list and we will share books.

My Shelfari looks like this:

DEADLINE for the activities in this post: June 20th

Reminder: There is a new page "Feedback" where you can read my comments to your writings and some recommended material to read and study.

That's all for now. See you soon.
Nelba :)
