March 2015 – It’s almost Saint Patrick’s Day!

MarchSUpicDear Teacher,

Tuesday 17th of March is St. Patrick’s Day, and people all over the world celebrate all things Irish! There is a list of Ireland-themed worksheets anseo*, and read on for details of a one-off Tune celebratory event in the Milan area.

March’s New Downloadable Worksheets

Two of this month’s contributions are from Irish artists.

  • Hozier – Take Me To Church

    Focussing on vocabulary related to religion, the worksheet for this ubiquitous song was submitted by regular contributor Mena Bianco from Naples.

  • U2 – The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)

    The first single from U2’s 2014 Songs Of Innocence, this worksheet looks at the Past Simple and Past Participle and was written by Valentina Ambrosio from Senigallia (AN). 

  • (Our current favourite joke: Bono and The Edge walk into a bar, the barman says “Oh no, not you two!”)

The Tune Into English Roadshow

This is the tour’s busiest month, and will include a full week in a 500-seater cinema in Portici – you can follow the tour on Tune’s facebook page. I look forward to meeting you and your students in the coming months.

(Out of) Tune Into Ireland – an evening of Ceol agus Craic (music and fun)

The English Club of Magenta is bravely hosting this one-off event on the 18th of March, where I will present and perform a selection of traditional Irish songs, accompanied by talented guitarist Sergio Garavaglia.  Contact The English Club for further details.

The Tune Into English Thesis

I was honoured to finally receive a copy of Danila De Gennaro’s 2014 thesis (see April 2014 newsletter) – she has kindly allowed us to publish the final chapter; this is online here.


Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig, a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Keep singing!

Best wishes,
