>New Widget from Google Reader

>Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I have stopped a minute before I start with mine and decided that it was time to share with you the stuff I come across on my Google Reader. If you take a look to the left you will see there a black box stuffed with headlines, they can be news, audio tracks, videos, TV programs or anything I think it can be useful, interesting or helpful for your English. You cannot complain now about not finding interesting material to read, listen or see in the language you are studying. Looking forward to your comments on the topics you are interested or your requests.

>Fame Star

>Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying the stuff I’ve been posting here. Today, I would like you to become celebrities yourselves. You may be wondering how you are going to do it if you do not sing, act or have any special abilities, apart from driving your English teacher mad, no bitterness, and the answer is my famestar. It is a website where you can create your a celeb personality of your own and they do the rest. It is real fun! Below, you will find an example I have made up myself. I wwould like you to do one and send it to me so we can show it in the classroom and practise the autobiography. Hope to hear your stories soon.

>New Vocabulary Feature in thisBlog

>Hello everyone! A few weeks ago I found quite a few new gadgets (widgets they call them) which will help you when reading this blog. The first is the appture which allows me to select information that I think you may be ineterested in and link it in to a pop-up window where a definition or other sort of material is displayed. In this case, the marked information is highlighted in different colour and by the symbol of an open book. The other interesting feature is that of answer tips. This time whenever you click on a word the meaning will be displayed in a pop-up window, so you do not need to go to a dictionary and look up the meaning. Apart from these two devices, I have included another widget with which you will be able to chech the links I consider can be useful. They are updated every week. Please leave a comment if anything does not work or if you have any interesting accessories. Even constructive criticism is accepted. See you soon
