International Day For Elimination of Violence Against Women

Stand up and take action. If that happens in your neighbourhood, or you have noticed around you, speak up and report the police about it. Don't cross your hands and do nothing.
As Antonio Banderas says, UNDP of goodwill, "they are our sisters, daughters, mothers.."
Real men don't hit women.

In class we are going to work on the unit of work by Amnesty  International on Rape as a weapon war.

Children's Rights

First, I am going to check if the now the meaning of "right"; if they do it, I will join it with the meaning of the word kid and together, it will be the meaning of kids' rights.
We will think about their rights at school, revising the modals according to their level.

What we must do for them
What they shouldn't do
What they should receive
What they may become...

UNICEF summarises the basic rights of a child

Eurovision Song Contest is taken place in Mälmo, Sweeden this week. E.S.C. is basically a competition of songs, in which many countries choose English as lingua franca in order to be understood by the others. As political aspects are everywhere, every country votes their neighbours as in the example of the former Yugoslavia or the former U.R.S.S., Greece gives their 12 to Cyprus and viceversa, the same with Ireland and the UK, although I don't think Irish keep a good memory of the British stay in their country.
Giacomo d.P., who will be supporting Italy on that day, has chose last year winner, Loreen with her song Euphoria. Everybody must agree that the winner is liked by almost all the other countries. 

1- Spot the mistake in this song.

Why, why can’t this moment last forevermore?
Tonight, tonight eternity’s an open door…
No, don’t ever stop doing the things you do.
Don’t go, in every breath I take I’m breathing you…

Forever, till the end of time
From now on, only you and I
We’re going up,up,up,up,up,up,up
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We’re going up,up,up,up,up,up,up

We are here, we’re all alone in our own Universe,
We are free, where everything’s allowed and love comes first,
Forever and ever together, we sail into infinity,
We’re higher and higher and higher, we’re reaching for divinity.


Forever we sail into infinity,
We’re higher, we’re reaching for divinity…

Euphoria, euphoria
We’re going ap,ap,ap,ap,ap,ap,ap
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We’re going up,up,up,up,up,up,up
Euphoria, euphoria
We’re going up,up,up,up,up,up,up.
