November 2018 – Tune Into Queen

Dear Teacher,

The highly anticipated film Bohemian Rhapsody premiered in London recently and will be in cinemas all over the world this month. Queen feature prominently in this newsletter and the cover story in the November issue of Speak Up was written by Tune Into English.


The Tune Into English Roadshow

Thank you for the warm reception the first Roadshows of 2018-2019 received, in Naples and Barletta. This month sees shows in Rome, Veneto, Friuli and Sicily. The show is now fully booked until Christmas, and is taking bookings for 2019 – thank you to all of those who have already booked, I look forward to meeting you and your students.

Tune Into Queen

This 45-minute tribute to the band will be presented in Cordenons (PN) on the 15th November – you can read more about this presentation here.

The 2019 Queen Diary is also available, and is the perfect Christmas gift (and can be purchased with the Carta del Docente). The first five-star review was published a few days ago.

The Beatles – Till There Was You
The other most famous British band ever released their second album With The Beatles, 55 years ago this month. Pedro Urbano, from Manaus in Brazil, sent this worksheet which used ‘there is/there was’ to compare and contrast.
