Malala, a Pakistani teenager for Nobel Peace Prize

It is incredible to see how some girls are speaking up for their rights. Malala Yousafzai is an example. She is a Pakistani school girl who was nearly killed by Taliban for going to school. In 2014, she became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Malala has been an inspiration for many young people, boys and girls, around the world with her optimistic personality.

I’ve Been Thinking About You
Londonbeat, Klaas
We must have been stone crazy
When we thought we were just friends
'Cause I miss you, baby
And I've got those feelings again
I guess I'm all confused about you
I feel so in love
Oh, baby, what can I do?
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
Suddenly we're strangers
I watch you walkin' away
She was my one temptation
Oh, I did not want her to stay
Deep down, I'm still confused about you
Oh, yes I have baby
I feel so in love
Oh, baby, what can I do?
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
Got you on my mind
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
Got you on my mind
What good is being here without you?
I wanna know
I feel so in love
Oh, baby, what can I do?
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you, uhh-yeah
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
Oh baby, can't get you out of my mind
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
You read me baby, I think about you all the time
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
Got you on my mind
I've been thinking about you

Thinkin Bout You
Ciara

I’ve been thinkin’ bout you
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
Wonderin’ who’s stuck in your head at night
Wonder if I ever cross your mind
Keeping you up in your bed at night
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
I can’t get you off the brain (No)
Lovin’ you is somethin’ strange (So strange)
Don’t get me wrong I ain’t complainin’ (No)
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
I’m wondering if your love’s a game
Just kissin’ girls and takin’ names (Tell me)
Is it love or entertainment?
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
Wonderin’ who’s stuck in your head at night
Wonder if I ever cross your mind
Keeping you up in your bed at night
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
I try to fight it but it’s hard to fight
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
I’ve been thinkin’ bout you (Yeah)
You’re a habit, hard to break
You’re more than a heart can take
There’s no exit, no escapin’ (No)
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
Maybe you’re my destination
(Maybe you’re my destination)
Or maybe just a fantasy
(Maybe just a fantasy)
Maybe it’s just my imagination
Boy, I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
Wonderin’ who’s stuck in your head at night
Wonder if I ever cross your mind (Do I?)
Keeping you up in your bed at night
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
I try to fight it but it’s hard to fight
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
Early in the mornin’
Think about you all day
Late night in the evenin’
I can’t get you off of my brain
Early in the mornin’
Think about you all day
Late night in the evenin’
I can’t get you off of my brain
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
(I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you)
(I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you)
I’ve been thinkin’ bout you

Desert Island

Let’s start the school year with a game!

Use this worksheet in your group: Desert Island

https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/desert-island

Author: Jo Adkin and Jeff Fowler

Students design an island, create rules for it and decide who gets to live on it by way of interview.

Preparation

You will need some A3 paper and felt-tip pens.

Procedure

  • Ask students if they know of any TV programmes, films or books set on desert islands, e.g. The BeachCastawayRobinson CrusoeSurvivor. In groups of three, get students to explain the programme, film or book to each other.
  • Try to get some feedback on the dangers and difficulties the main character face living on these islands.
  • Tell the students that they are going to design an island. Students work in threes. Two students draw an island together on the same A3 piece of paper following instructions from the third student (e.g. Draw sharks in the sea). Change roles every few minutes. Allow ten minutes overall.
  • Tell them they have to decide on rules for living on their island (e.g. You must build a fire at 6 o’clock in the evening). Students write five rules. Elicit rules they have for living in their homes.
  • Ask the students to give a presentation to the whole class describing the island and explaining the rules for living on it.
  • Explain that someone will arrive at their island and they must decide if they want to allow the person onto the island. They must make a questionnaire to ask the new arrivals. Elicit some good questions, e.g. How do you make a fire? How do you defend yourself against a shark? Students write six to eight questions in their groups.
  • Choose one person from each group and tell them that their boat has sunk and they are swimming around looking desperately for an island. Tell students to go to an island where they will be interviewed.
  • The students ‘swim’ to the other islands and are interviewed at each one.
  • The group of students for each island decides which person they have chosen to live on their island and why. Together the swimmers decide which island they want to live on and why.
  • Finish with some feedback on how well they did the tasks and how difficult it was.
