    Hi Mitzi

    here is some feedback on your second homework task.

    1: Well done, correct - "her" favourites.

    2: Correct - give something to someone (or here, to something, the dog).

    3: You changed two things here: 'at the weekend' is correct in British English, so you didn't need to change it. However, 'on the weekend' is common in American English so your correction wasn't wrong. In the second part you correctly changed 'depends of' to 'depends on'. Well done.

    4: That sentence was correct as it was, which you spotted. Well done.

    5: I'm afraid you didn't spot the problems in this question. Look back at the topic of your first homework and try this one again.

    6: Good, no changes needed here. Well done.

    7: Yes. You changed "on university" to "at university". Well done.

    8: Well done. This sentence was correct.

    Overall Mitzi, good homework - just have another look at question 5.

    Nuala, our regular teacher blogger, has come back from her holiday and will take over from me in responding to your blogs. It's been a pleasure for me and I'll continue to read your blogs with interest.

    All the best

    I like your blog - very much so!! It's interesting you have a "teacher's day" and that there is one in Iran, too. Nothing like that around here in Austria.
    By the way, I'm just treating myself to a cup of Mexican coffee - my favourite!

    In México we have to many problems, is not a happy place. For example, violence, drug traffic, a popential natural disaster in Golf of México by oil leak, and many other things. She talk only about landmarks and holydays, She's describing the country as a happy magic place. México also have actuality themes.

  • Comment number 11.

    That is only my opinion, I don't want bother to Mitzi.

  • Comment number 12.

    Hi dear Mario,
    I respect to your opinion, it's okay. Of course, I can't know what kind of actually themes has Mexico, but I know exactly that the Mexican girl Mitzi has only one actually theme in this Blog: to improve a little bit of her knowledge in English language. And the themes could be chosen freely: for example, our frend Lyn from Bangkok who was right before Mitzi, so she completely in during of the all month told only about mice...no, not about mice, if to be exact about the mouse, about the one mouse separately given and all of us (including our esteemed Teachers) passionately picked up this theme, if you remember. Just imagine!..
    But, Mario, if to be seriously, if you need some globally info about Mexico you can find in internet lots of much more authoritative sources then from Mitzi.
    Good day, frend.

    Hi dear Mario!
    I don't know if your last comment is in reply to my question! Anyway, you are right, I have heard about the problems your people are facing to! Let me ask you a question. Do you think that such as probles you mentioned are just inclusive to your country? If so, you are strongly wrong! Do you know any nation living without hardships in the world? Of course not!So, since by reiterating problems to other users in this forum, we can't get any result to solve our problems then, let's know about the positive points of your country as its beautiful,culture,traditions and so on!
    write again.

    Mitzi, thank you for your posts!
    Pelase, tell us about Mexican litterature, I love this subject.

    About Teachers´day, have you ever heard about the film 'To Sir, With Love'? It´s just amazing! You can read about it at internet.

    I reproduce, here bellow,the lyrics of the amonimous song, sang by Lulu originally in 1967.

    "To Sir, With Love"

    Those schoolgirl days, of telling tales and biting nails are gone,
    But in my mind,
    I know they will still live on and on,
    But how do you thank someone, who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
    It isn't easy, but I'll try,

    If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters,
    That would soar a thousand feet high,
    To Sir, with Love

    The time has come,
    For closing books and long last looks must end,
    And as I leave,
    I know that I am leaving my best friend,
    A friend who taught me right from wrong,
    And weak from strong,
    That's a lot to learn,
    What, what can I give you in return?

    If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start,
    But I, would rather you let me give my heart,
    To Sir, with Love

    The teacher's day is celebrated on 14th October.
    This date is very easy to memorize to all student because it is related to the very important historical date. In 1410 polish-lithuanian army won the battle against german knights (known better as Crossknights because they wore black crosses on white background of their armour) in Grunwald. So because of the big importance of this date in historical aspect everybody should know it, especially for history class.
    Best wishes

    I'm Thanh, I'm new person on this website.
    I will be happy when all of you make friend with me.
    I feel interested by the teacher's day since I'm a teacher in VietNam!it is the first time I hear about the teacher'day at your country. In my country, the teacher's day celebrates on 20 Nov every year! In that day, my students usually visit me in my office at university. after that, I and some my friends take together to visit my old teachers who taught us when we were their students.
