1 Teaching English is fun by Lupaşcu Mariana Colegiul National “Ion Minulescu”

2 Experience of teaching English proved that motivated students are much more successful than non-motivated students. Motivation is some kind of “internal drive” that encourages somebody to pursue a course of action. If we perceive a goal-i.e. something we wish to achieve-and if that goal is sufficiently attractive,we well be strongly motivated to do whatever is necessary to reach that goal. What is important in the method we choose to teach.The method by wich students are tought must have some effect on their motivation. If they find deadly boring,they well probably becoe de- motivated,wheareas if they have confidence in the method they well find it motivating.A really motivated student well probably succed whatever method is used. It is true that some students are more or less sympathetic to any particular method depending on their expectations.The student’s confidence in the method is largely in the hands of he most important factor affecting intrinsic motivation,the teacher.

3 The Banana Boat Song (Day-O) (Harry Belafonte) Group A Pick of the Bunch: Top Banana Facts (Observer 2002) The word 'banan' is Arabic for finger. Last year there were more than 300 banana- related accidents in Britain, most involving people slipping on skins. Eating two bananas provides enough energy to see you through a strenuous 90-minute gym workout. In the West, only Germans eat more bananas than British do. A total of 35,000 bananas will be eaten by players, linesmen and ball boys and girls at this year's Wimbledon. The phrase 'going bananas' was first recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary, and is linked to the fruit's 'comic' connections with monkeys. Bananas don't grow on trees but on the world's biggest herb, Musa sapientium, which is directly related to the orchid family. Wild bananas originated in Asia and have been cultivated for more than 4,000 years. Bananas are believed to be the first fruit farmed by man. Only 14 per cent are exported. Locals eat the rest. Banana fans include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tim Henman, Julia Roberts and Manchester United, who eat banana and jam sandwiches before games. Group B The Amazing Banana (Mr. Breakfast) A banana a day keeps the doctor away... and the dermatologist...and the psychologist... and if current research can be trusted... death. It seems there's almost no ailment that the banana can't help cure. According to a 2003 research project bananas cure: Anemia -- Because of their high iron content According to a 2003 research project bananas cure: Anemia -- Because of their high iron content Bone Mass Decay In Salt Eaters - The potassium found in bananas counteracts the bad effects of high- salt diets.

High Blood Pressure - bananas reduce the risk of blood pressure problems. Nervousness - Bananas are high in the B-complex vitamins, having a calming effect on the nervous system.

Old wives, if not yet scientists, consider bananas relieve hangovers (blend with milk and honey), heartburn, morning sickness, mosquito bites and warts (apply the inside of peel to irritated skin).

Ss form the words required the group finishing first and/or correctly gets 1 point.

12 My Auntie’s Monkey My auntie Mony has felt so lonely lately. She probably yens for having a pet, maybe some cat. My cousin Ken, aunt Mony’s son, whom I call Moke, as he has got big ears, promises to take her to one of the pet shops. Instead, he takes my aunt to a monastery, where the monks have been raising some orphan monkeys for yonks. Auntie gets angry and says: “No, no way, I won’t buy any of these monkeys. They are too nosy and noisy. What will my neighbours say?” But Ken can be very convincing and in the end Mony says “OK, my son, you’re right, monkeys are just like men, so I’m going to have a good friend if I take a monkey. I like that one, with the white- spotted nose.” “Half a mo”, says monk Yen to my aunt. “I agree with ye, that monkey is smart and cute. However, I have to warn ye: he is also quite nosy and naughty, he likes to monkey about all day, he pulls and pushes things around – by the way, his name is Yoke.“ Auntie doesn’t want any other monkey, so Yoke has become her new companion. Next morning my aunt goes into the kitchen and Yoke greets her “Yo, Mony!” Auntie is so delighted that she immediately calls her son. When Ken arrives, Mony wants to open the door, but she cannot find her keys. Finally she asks Yoke “Where are my keys?” and the monkey takes her to the night table. Aunt Mony sees next to her money and glasses, the bunch of keys she was looking for. Both Ken and aunt Mony are amazed. While my aunt and her son are chatting and eating monkey nuts, Yoke becomes nervous, jumping up and down and yelling. “The monk was right”, admits Ken. “You are nosy and naughty.” But all of a sudden, aunt Mony smells some smoke. “Fire!” she shouts and runs to the stairs. Thanks to aunt Mony’s monkey, Yoke, the fire can be put out in time. At present, friendship yokes auntie Mony and her monkey and all neighbours are happy when Yoke greets them “Yo, men.”
