Extracurricular activities, cliques and school systems

Today I showed this picture to your classmates and their job was to find out what our new subject would be...

Here is what they proposed:

- "Maybe we are going to talk about sports."
- "I guess we are going to talk about music."
- "I would say that we are going to talk about the carnival."

...and finally someone came up with the correct answer... 

- "I am certain that we are going to talk about hobbies/activities."
  
So From now on we are going to focus on extracurricular activities (in and out-of-school activities) and we will also learn new things about school in the USA/UK and about groups (cliques) in schools.

HIGH SCHOOL CLIQUES

 WHAT IS A CLIQUE


A CLIQUE IS A GROUP OF TEENAGERS OR STUDENTS WHO GROUP TOGETHER BECAUSE THEY SHARE THE SAME INTERESTS (MUSIC,FASHION,LIFESTYLE...)

TARO TELLS US ABOUT TWO SPECIFIC CLIQUES THAT EXIST IN HIS HIGH SCHOOL.


I WISH...

"I wish I were" est logiquement la formulation correcte mais de plus en plus d'anglo-saxons utilisent la formulation "I wish I was..."

Skee-Lo "I wish" (1996)
LEND AN EAR TO THAT CHORUS:


I wish I was a little bit taller
I wish I was a baller
I wish I had a girl who looked good I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat 
And a six four Impala

video

Sandi Thom "I wish I was a punk rocker" (2006)

LEND AN EAR TO THAT CHORUS:

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair 
In 77 and 69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair




Examples: I am popular but I wish I joined the Jocks!
I am a beauty queen but I wish I were/was a geek!
