Laughing Therapy (Risoterapia)

Laughing is a good therapy to get over a problem. If you laugh, you are happy, so, you will not probably be thinking unhappy memories, you feel happy-go-lucky. 
It is true that when you laugh, you are happy or something makes you fell in good humor. Probably, if we considered most of our problems as insignificant, we would feel better.

Watch and think on the following experiences:



Answer the following questions:
  • Have you ever laughed when you were sad?
  • Do you think people can really get over their worries by laughing?
  • If so, please specify what you feel.
  • Interview people and ask them what they usually do when they are sad and what they think of laughing therapy.

Original Happy Birthday



Always planning the same birthday parties and you want to innovate? Buying the same gifts: books, cinema tickets, clothes, shoes, etc. Something more special: a trip, dinner in an expensive restaurant, spending some day in the beach...? These are some original ideas to carry your plan.

What I considered more special in my birthday was a song, composed and singed by a student. It was exactly what I received last year. Nothing bought but very original and valuable for me.

Thanks a lot!

Barack Obama Speech


During our classes you asked me for Barack Obama's Discourse. It is a new age for the United States due to he is the first black president in the history of US.


People, tired of Bush' absurd promises, have given a vote of confidence to this new president who looks for social welfare of Americans.

Try to watch and understand his discourse and respond to the questions below.




In the folowing link you can find a lesson plan for intermediate students with some activities proposed. Look at it, and try to do it.

Please, try to look for some video where our current President is speaking English language for official purposes.

How do you consider it is his English? Do you think our politicians have a good command of English language? Why? 

Would you like to be Obama our Spanish President?
