a story about bad grammar and non-existent punctuation and my TEFL adventures

The power of the gerund

As much as I usually despair for the future of humanity, there are times when I am surprised by our intelligence and wit. Today is, happily, such a day.

Found this this morning and thought it could work quite well as a quickie activity in class.

If you add -ing to a movie title, how would it change?

Think of the last movie you watched, and think about how the plot would change.

For example, mine would be Everesting – the story of relaxation.

Have a look here for some amazing art inspired by these gerund movies and here for the original thread on reddit.

Giggles for days.

One of my favourite things to do when in a new city is to wander the streets with nowhere to go...#kualalumpur Just when you think you've seen enough temples....#kl #malaysia Historic Granada, in the south of Spain, has architectural surprises around every corner. A great city to wander around on sunny afternoons. Just north-east of Bordeaux, Saint Emilion is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a picture-perfext setting for some delicious wine tasting.
