universalsubtitles – ¡Vámonos!
 

Category: universalsubtitles

Inspired by ideas from Jan Lewandowski and Sandra Longden on the CFBT Primary forum for snow related songs, I was reminded of a previous post in which I shared a song about Un muñeco de nieve that I had subtitled using Amara (previously called Universal Subtitles.)

Below is the unsubtitled version – subtitled version is available here (can’t embed it on my WP blog)

Then there’s this simple song to the tune of Frosty the Snowman – Mi hombre de nieve

I particularly like this song too about winter becoming spring – Es invierno

La letra

ES INVIERNO Y HACE FRÍO.
EN INVIERNO, NO CALIENTA EL SOL.
ES INVIERNO Y CAE LA LLUVIA
Y EL PAISAJE PIERDE SU COLOR.

EL INVIERNO
EMPIEZA EN DICIEMBRE
EN MARZO SE TIENE QUE IR.
EL SOL CALIENTA,
LAS FLORES YA SALEN.
ES PRIMAVERA POR FIN.

And finally, here’s a simple story about a sad snowman- El Muñeco de Nieve está triste.

I also wrote a post back in 2008 about using The Snowman by Raymond Briggs using resources from HGFL.

Finally, it reminded me of this post from way back about snow!

 

On Friday, I hit BETT in London.  I didn’t really see much on Friday apart from some wonderful presentations as part of TeachMeetTakeover which I was helping coordinate for the day.

TeachMeetTakeover is a sort of ‘organised flashmob’ idea where companies offer their stands for half hour / hour slots to be used by someone talking about free ideas that they’ve used in their classroom.  There were presentations throughout Thursday, Friday and Saturday – the variety of ideas can be seen from the wikispace, which also shows how many offered but didn’t get to take part.

Having snaffled a helium balloon from a stand, I taped the logo to it and flew it by presentations – it seemed to make people stop for that all important three seconds it took for them to be drawn into the presentations!

My presentation was on the Babcock4S stand – and I have to say a huge thank you to Dan and the team for their welcome – and the beer!

Below are the slides from my talk entitled ‘Free stuff doesn’t have to be pants!

A lady from IRIS Connect was videoing it – if it gets published, I’ll upload the link! UPDATE – blog post with link

And look!  Just found this photo on Flickr that was taken during my presentation – you can see my legs just under the banner!

I’ve been having another play with Universal Subtitles.  Still can’t embed the videos into my WordPress blog but all is not lost!
Here’s a very simple song about a snowman that comes from 123SpanishTogether.  i’ve subtitled it so that Reception class can use it without me!
