It finally happened! After a weekend that was full of fog, rain and dull weather, summer appeared. I’m not sure if it is sticking around but it happened for all of 1 day.
If you’re not feeling summery enough then click here or here or even here before continuing to read. Don’t do all three as that would be like mixing mint ice-cream, strawberry ice-cream and honeycomb ice-cream. All the right intentions but it would not end well!
It’s the end of term so this blog contains some stats, a quick thank you and an update on what to expect from Everydaymfl.com in the future.
- The most read post were: Outstanding MFL Everyday and GCSE Revision lessons
- The least read posts were: Numbers, days of the week and the basics and Raising your game. One on the present tense was pretty ropey so I’m not counting that…
- The countries viewing this blog most are: UK, USA, Brazil, Spain and Austrailia. So thank you, obrigado and gracias.
- The site saw 5000 unique visitors this academic year.
Thank you to all the people from the secondary MFL facebook groups for your encouragement and suggestions. Thank you also to those who have commented on the site or have followed me on Twitter. Thank you to Steve Smith for listing me on the excellent FrenchTeacher.net.
Fun with Grammar– Since someone asked for it on facebook, I’ve wanted to do a post on quirky ways to make grammar rules stick and good grammar practice activities.
Teaching the new GCSE – I’ve done two posts on preparing for it here and here but as I’m teaching it next year then I need to reflect on things such as how well am I preparing the students for the exams they will face?
Teaching the new GCSE content– some of the newer content. I’ve trialled a bit this term such as customs, festivals, poverty and homelessness so there will be a blog on that.
A facelift for the site – This is something I consider every now and again but it hasn’t happened yet.
A guest blog? – Maybe you have been reading this thanks to the facebook groups and thought “I wouldn’t want to run my own site but I could do that!” Drop me a line here and let me know.
Sorting out the categories – there has to be an easier system. I’m working on it!
Have a great summer!
