Horrible sicky colours on my blog!

Maybe someone noticed that many of the blog entries here appear with a horrific background colour that not only makes them almost impossible to read, but also makes one feel pretty sick only by having a quick peep at them. I don´t know why this is happening and I would never choose anything so tasteless (mark my words for that!). I have sent a query to wordpress in order to get it sorted out as soon as possible. Meanwhile, i´ll just have to be patient. 😦

The causative: Have/get something done

Causative structures are another form of passive structures where the focus is on something that is done rather than who does it. Here’s a video I made with bitable that will give you some tips on some of the different structures.

After, you can do a grammar activity to practise the structure.

A1/A2 Countable and uncountable nouns

Countable and uncountable nouns in English are on many occasions sort of confusing and sometimes beginners need some picture activities to help them memorize some of the words in English that are uncountable. It may be a bit of a drag, but as a matter of fact, if you don´t know them you will have some problems when you have to use determiners like `much and many`.  Here´s a quick drag-and-drop quiz to help remember some of the rules.
