So here we are again with Jennifer, the American teacher of English Language who has a very complete page about English learning and a YouTube channel where she uploads all her videos and tutorials. Let’s have a look at her explanation about the passive voice in the next two clips. Here comes the first one:

And you can also have a plain and simple explanation about the reasons to use the Passive Voice in English in this video tutorial.

This is one of the best comedy series lately seen on British TV. Set in the London offices of the fictional corporation Reynholm Industries, the show revolves around the three staff members of its IT (Information Technology) department, comprising two geeky technicians, a genius named Moss and the workshy Roy, headed by Jen, the department’s ‘relationship manager’ who knows nothing about IT. With Spanish subtitles.

After claiming she has had “a lot of experience with computers”, Jen is made head of Reynholm Industries IT department, where she is soon proven by Roy and Moss to in fact have no knowledge of IT at all. In this hilarious excerpt, she “meets” Internet. With Spanish subtitles.

I have looked for a little piece of information about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to illustrate the text of the same title that we have been debating about in our two last lessons. I reckon it’s truly outrageous that most of us who were in the classroom didn’t know anything about this issue. Have a look at this article where you can get more facts about this scary ecological disaster:

This is a Selectividad Exam and you have to carefully complete only the OPTION A, and the fourteen questions in it, in the same way as if you were in a real test. Remember that you have to follow the instructions on how to write a good essay. And I remind you that it is a compulsory work, so if you don’t hand it in, there will be a zero mark for it. Thank you!
