Tuesday Sep . 16 - Song

Hello there:

Watch the video and listen to the song f-i-r-s-t , meaning ... no peep on the activity below. The lyric is provided for the activities need it.

After watching or watching it over and over ...

Am I wrong for 1:thinking out the box from where I stay?
Am I wrong  2: for saying that I'll choose another way?
 3: I ain't  trying to do what
everybody else doing
Just cause everybody doing what they all do
If one thing I know, how far would I grow?
I'm walking down this road of mine, this road that I call

So am I wrong 4: for thinking
that we could be something for real?
Now am I wrong 5: for trying
to reach the things that I can't see
That's just how I feel, that's just how I feel …
That's just how I feel …  trying to reach the things that I can't see

Am I tripping for having ambition?
My prediction; 6: I'mma be on the top of the world
Hope you, hope you don't look back, always do what you decide
Don't let them control your life, that's just how I feel
Fight for yours and don't let go, don't let them compare you, no
Don't worry, you're not alone, that's just how we feel

Am I wrong for thinking that we could be something for real?
Now am I wrong for trying to reach the things that I can't see?
That's just how I feel, that's just how I feel
That's just how I feel … trying to reach the things that I can't see

If you tell me I'm wrong, wrong 
I don't 7:wanna be right, right
If you tell me I'm wrong, wrong
I don't wanna be right …

[ … ]


a: What is "to think out / outside (of) the box"? (1)

b: I the song, there is some slang that you should find out
the meaning. Number references in the song: 3 – 6 and 7

c: Numbers 2 – 4 and 5 show the same pattern or model. Do a little Grammar research to know why it is not ‘for’ think instead of ‘for’ thinking …  Google them. 

d:  Write the opposites of:
- mine: ___________
- control: _________
- real: ____________
- something: _____________

See you in class,

Teacher Silvy


Hello everybody:
Videos of recent presentations are ready. They are uploaded on YouTube due to their size but do not
'panic' ... They are not public 

The idea is that past and future presenters watch the body language and listen to your speech (be nice
to yourself).

Write your answers neatly on a separate piece of paper to hand it to your teacher , me ...

1) What things you would like to improve in your next presentation?
2) Do you like your body movements?
3) Do you like the volume of your voice?
4) Is there anything special you noticed regarding your pronunciation?
5) Did you like your poster? Was it useful?
6) Do you think your classmates understood what you said?

All my best,

Teacher S.
