  8. Here I go : here's a link to a video on youtube of the FIRST song we sung this year!
    Here it is : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzCSTMWix3g To get in the mood! =3

    And here are the lyrics for those who didn't write it :

    1_In a cavern,in a canyon
    Excavating for a mine
    Dwelt a miner forty niner,
    And his daughter Clementine
    CHORUS
    Oh my darling, oh my darling,
    Oh my darling, Clementine!
    Thou art lost and gone forever
    Dreadful sorry, Clementine

    2_Light she was and like a fairy,
    And her shoes were number nine,
    Herring boxes, without topses,
    Sandals were for Clementine.
    CHORUS
    3_Drove she ducklings to the water
    Ev'ry morning just at nine,
    Hit her foot against a splinter,
    Fell into the foaming brine.
    CHORUS
    4_Saw her lips above the water,
    Blowing bubbles mighty fine,
    But alas I was no swimmer,
    So I lost my Clementine
    CHORUS
    5_In corner of the churchyard,
    Where the myrtle boughs entwine,
    Grow the roses in their posies,
    Fertilized by Clementine
    CHORUS
    How I missed her! How I missed her!
    How I missed my Clementine,
    But I kissed her little sister,
    And forgot my Clementine.
    CHORUS

    THE END

  25. Bonjour, c'est une classe en France. N'est-ce pas? J'etudie le francais en Jamaique. I was asked to follow this blog for one of my courses, hence my coming across it. I find it very interesting and think it a good idea to have students from around the world interact with each other. Good luck all, and I hope we can all learn from each other.

    Nice , prefecture of the department of the Alpes-Maritimes, is the fifth city of France. It is situated in the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, in around thirty kilometres of the Italian border.
    There are more than 930000 inhabitants in Nice . This dynamic city possesses numerous equipments as the second airport of France, two conference halls or business districts.

    Nice is the second French tourist area after Paris (Carnival in Nice , Jazz festival in Nice). Nice is situated at the edge of the Mediterranean Sea at the bottom of the Bay of Angels.
    Several hills dominate the city.
    The most known are the one of Cimiez with its antique vestiges, its museums and its hotels former Belle Epoque.The hill of the castle separates the old town of the port of Nice. The city is crossed by two small torrentueux rivers: Paillon in the East and Magnan on the West.

    Nice is also known for its old town as the course Saleya with its sheltered markets and restaurants, the Chagall museum and Matisse museum, Mamac ( contemporary art), and naturally " La promenade des Anglais " which carries you to the airport and there is also the open air theatre .

  36. Hello La Verne,
    I would really like you to help me with my English. What books do you read ? My English is quite good because my teacher corrects me. So if you correct me, my teacher will have less work. Do you know where in France you will go for 2 years to teach? Can you call to me about Jamaïca ? (History ? Gouvernement ? Economy ?). We have to search renseignement about this country.

  37. My name's Mathieu I live in Nice and I enjoy playing tennis until I am knocked out, otherwives I found that the Xbox 360 is better than your Ps3 : all your games are in the 360 and we've got even more games.
    I'm fond of handwriting that is why I use "Photoshop".
    About the question, I prefer to use a computer because there are more possibilities: you can read the books we want to work and also other Subjects.
    To finish, it's very cold here !

  43. I think they should use the funds to buy other computers. It's more useful now to use the internet, you can find more information than in one book. You can go on wikipedia, download programms for scientific subjects or find information on an author for French class.

  53. Hi Carlene,I think the film''This is it''has been created since Michael had done a concert before his death and it was probably gain a lot of money. So the film was created to earn money for the producer. Well, I'm not the only one to think that ^^"

    Deck The Halls:

    Deck the halls with boughs of holly
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    'Tis the season to be jolly
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Don we now our gay apparel
    Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
    Troll the ancient Yule-tide carol
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

    See the blazing Yule before us.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Strike the harp and join the chorus.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Follow me in merry measure.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    While I tell of Yule-tide treasure.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

    Fast away the old year passes.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Hail the new year, lads and lasses
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Sing we joyous, all together.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Heedless of the wind and weather.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

    D-14 Before CHRISTMAS !
