Daft Punk (Beg – PI) – Around The World One More Time

First given the brush off by a British journalist –who did not know he was to give them their new name- the French post-funk duo has become famous for their disco beat songs centered around the techno world…

Daft Punk were selected to write the musical score of the sequel to the legendary Disney blockbuster TRON and their song Technologic is the music to the British Tech Show programme.

Their songs are based on a basic beat and vocabulary ideal from the beginner up.

They sing in a clear articulate fashion easy to understand and follow.

My track selection includes

  1. On / Off from Human After All
  2. WDPK 83. 7 FM from Homework
  3. The Brainwasher from Human After All
  4. Make Love from Human After All
  5. Around the World from Discovery
  6. Robot Rock from Human After All
  7. Oh Yeah from Homework
  8. Superheroes from Discovery
  9. High Fidelity from Homework
  10. Human After All from Human After All

Especially women…

Women have that eerie ability of living many lives in one… which would akin them to cats… and accounts for yet another reason why I know them so well…

A collection of stories to pay tribute to their endeavours…

Short stories for beginning French readers
Short stories for beginning French readers

Stories For French is a collection selected with a pedagogical interest in mind… to give new readers in French literature to read in a both interesting and progressive way…

Most learners of French never make it to reading books… or even stories…

They either use or don’t use their command of French to some extent in the course of their job and… leave it at that…

All the same teachers regularly get requests for books and reading material from their students… and here is a good start…

Training people over the years has shown me the need for a carefully chosen selection that would motivate -while encouraging- the learners to take their command of French beyond this… let them keep learning while they are enjoying the read… the way I had already done it with songs and music in Singin’ To English… and I encourage French teachers to do likewise with French songs…

These stories come for students and trainers, teachers and learners alike… and more and more are being recorded and can be heard in their audio book version… which may be used as audio support and / or practice…

The stories featured here offer readability from a fairly early level up… they start with a short easy repetitive pattern to evolve and evolve into more challenging longer stories… the readers will step up their reading without really pulling and stretching…

Companion for English teachers
Companion for English teachers

Reaching out to all the teachers and trainers…

Addressing speakers as well as parents, teachers and trainers…

Because all teachers at one time or another feel that need for taking it further, reaching deeper into the course options…

To blend all supports to implement so as to guarantee the highest return on teaching and learning…

What material, what approach, and for what course, can we find the suitable material and support ?

Students need to be taught what they need… with the best possible material and resources in the best learning environment… and to ensure that is done a teacher needs to use the resources of the brain to learn in compliance with the learning processes…

Teachers need to put their students’ brains in the appropriate frame of mind or learning frame… to put the brain in gear before they start to drive the teaching and reach the learning…

For lack of setting the students in the right mindset the English teacher will only be swimming against the current…

Every teacher should have The Comprehensive Teacher !

Because it is about what you teach… as much as how you teach…

As a young adult I soon realised that some people always made it… while others didn’t regardless of how much effort they put into it… there had to be another way… I searched and researched far and wide… more often that not day and night… and realised that was not so much as much as how they did it...

The results come from successful professionals all over the world… that was what I found when I decided to study all the wining procedures and use them to my benefits and my clients’ benefit… I studied and haven’t stopped studying…

The results in teaching and learning are here for your benefit too…

The Comprehensive Teacher is also an audiobook by Maxine LENNON.

A guide book to select songs for English lessons
