Millions of men, women and children are starving in Yemen. Hunger is the Yemen´s silent killer. Food is unaffordable, unavailable, and humanitarian aid is hindered or blocked by a country devastated by war and genocide. What? Where? Why? Improve your listening skills by watching this video report. At the same time, ask yourself why this video has only had 3,350 views, while a video on how many girls Justin Bieber has dated has received over 1.7 million hits.
It´s time for us all to stop looking the other way. Donating money might help in the short term, but using your voice to lobby governments and hold them accountable for their actions is bound to have a longer lasting effect.
Don´t let governments use your tax to sell weapons. Don´t let your governments justify this heinous action in the name of national economic prosperity. Don´t let the childish behaviour of politicians distract you from the ‘real’ issues. Don´t let the lawyers and academics cloud your sense of moral and ethical justice with legal and intellectual debate. Perhaps, I don´t know, or don´t have the intellectual capabilities to truly understand all the issues. And, quite frankly, I don´t care; selling arms for economic and political gain is just wrong.
EG:My mother has a heart of gold: she is always willing to help a stranger and donate to charity . Furthermore, she has supported me with every good, and every terrible decision I have made in my life. So, do you have a heart of gold or a heart of stone?
Director, Centre for Global Youth, UCL Institute of Education, UCL, reports:
In the immediate aftermath of the EU referendum, much was made of how devastated young people were by the result. A survey by Lord Ashcroft suggested that over 70% of young people aged 18-24 voted Remain, while almost 60% of over 55s voted to Leave.
In my ongoing research, I’ve found that this view is too simplistic: in practice, young people’s reactions and views are much more diverse and tricky to categorise.
All Saints Day is celebrated across Spain on 1st November, and is a National holiday in the country. The day is celebrated in order to remember the departed friends and relatives, and pay respects to them. People visit the cemeteries and offer flowers, especially chrysanthemums, on the grave of their deceased relatives. Churches hold mass for the occasion. The atmosphere is family friendly and people not only remember the deceased, but also celebrate just being alive
Carles Puigdemont refuses to deviate from his independence plan while PM Mariano Rajoy rules out considering using a mediator
This weekend Spain appeared to be at its most important crossroads since democracy was restored forty years ago.
Despite attempts by central government to disrupt the unconstitutional referendum on independence organised by the Catalan regional government, the vote which went ahead anyway last Sunday has spurned regional leaders, led by Carles Puigdemont, to carry on with their plan to convert Catalonia into an independent state.
What happens next in Catalonia is likely to be clearer on Monday when the Catalan regional parliament is due to meet for the first time since the illegal vote.
Although Spain’s constitutional court has put a temporary ban on that meeting as well, separatist MPs, who hold a majority, are still expected to attend.
Achieving a C1 level language qualification is not a walk in the park. In fact, many people who have this advanced level have lived and worked abroad in English speaking nations, they consistently read in English, listen to English, and communicate in English on a daily basis giving their opinions and thoughts on topics as varied as medical science, art, culture, politics, commerce, economics, psychology, philology, and the merits of space exploration. This level would not be achievable for many native speakers, so it is my absolute pleasure to congratulate Mayte on passing her EOI C1 level this month. Well done, your thoroughly deserve it.
We use the modal verbs: Must, Might and Could when we want to express a possibility. So, imagine that Pepé de Ronda is an adrenaline junkie who is very keen on rock climbing and we want to know where he is.
So we ask: Where is Pepé de Ronda?
- He MUST be rock climbing ( I am 100% sure)
- He MIGHT be white water rafting. ( I am 75% sure)
- He COULD be in the pub with Janette. ( 50% It’s a possible option)
Grammar Tip! Please remember, if you use a modal verb, you have to use the bare infinitive in the following verb. MODAL VERB+ BARE INFINITIVE (B.INF:without TO ) MUST BE, MIGHT BE, COULD BE
Well, it´s a word which uses all of the 5 English vowels. And, phonetically speaking, it looks like this: /ɛdjʊˈkeɪʃ(ə)n/. In addition, it´s a word that politicians repeat to infinity and beyond during an election campaign. Finally, it´s something that affects all of us.
OK Janette, but what does it mean?
Well, I have my opinions, but I think this guy has something more interesting to say than me. If you check out this video, you will improve your English listening and comprehension skills, learn new vocabulary, and you will definitely think. Perfect; bring on the brain shake!
