Hello all,

This time we will focus on:

1.  The world going global


Globalisation has been taking place for hundreds of years, but has speeded up enormously over the last half-century.
However, there is a growing debate over its positive and negative effects.
I have chosen three YouTube videos related to this topic.

Please watch them:

2. Building a democratic Europe

The European Union

The European Union has 4 main aims:
- To establish European citizenship. 
- To ensure freedom, security and justice. 
- To promote economic and social progress. 
- To assert Europe's role in the world

Watch these YouTube videos related to The European Union.

 3. Improve your 

Inversion in conditional sentences
Ex    1        2           3

Connectors of contrast
Ex    1        2           3

Asking polite questions
Ex     1                 3

 Don't forget to leave a meaningful comment on one of the videos.

Thank you! 😊

Hello teacher!
The videos that cativated me the most were the E.U ones. It´s so interesting that it evolved from an only economical organization to a full economic and social union.
Im so glad,as an European, for this policy measure, not only because it has deeply contributed to the recovery of countries that were economically fragile, but also by the creation of a solid market that is one of the strongest and biggest in trade in the world. Also, it´s with no doubt the E.U impact on the creation of millions jobs and the increase in the life quality of Europeans.

Hey teacher! Once again thank you for the videos, I found the ones about the EU very interesting and I'll definitely save some ideas from them! The one I liked the most was, undoubtedly," The European Union explained", I learned some new incredible things and was surprised to listen about Madeira Island!! I'm so grateful for belonging to the EU and one of the reasons why is mentioned in the video: how easy it is to travel and get to know different countries.

Hello Teacher! I would like to thank you for the exercices, they really helped me to really grasp the grammar. Hitherto i did not quite compreehend the grammar so, again, thank you so much!
In addition the videos were really an eye opener in some ways and i will take into account some of them. I expecially enjoyed “the hidden face of globalization”!!

Hello teacher. All the videos were great, as always, but the video about globalisation was the most interesting, because it showed how rich people can take advantadge from the non-rich ones, in order to rise in life. However, globalisation made our lifes easier and if it had not happen, maybe I wouldn´t be writing this comment.

Hey teacher! Loved all the videos but especially, "The European Union explained", I thought it was a really simple video but at the same time it had a lot of knowledge, all the videos helped me on knowing more about the EU. I also found the exercises about grammar, really helpful, thank you so much for the help !!

Hello teacher!
Thank you for the videos about globalization and the European Union and its history. They were very interesting, and will be, for sure, extremely helpful for the written test. The video about globalization was my favorite because it shows both sides of the issue, and we can clearly see that maybe its pros don't really outweigh its cons. However, people tend to forget about the disadvantages of living in a globalized world. Also, thank you for the grammar exercises!

Hi, teacher. I found the video on Erasmus+ quite interesting as it is a different programme/ perpective on education. Furthermore, the one about the pros and cons of Globalisation is well-explained and it can be easily understood.
Thank you.
