Rihanna – don’t stop the music

17 July, 2008

Please don’t stop the music (2x)

It’s gettin late
I’m making my way over to my favorite place
I gotta get my body moving shake the stress away
I wasn’t looking for nobody when you looked my way
Possible candidate (yeah)
Who knew
That you’d be up in here lookin like you do
You’re makin’ stayin’ over here impossible
Baby I must say your aura is incredible
If you dont have to go don’t

Do you know what you started
I just came here to party
But now we’re rockin on the dancefloor
Acting naughty
Your hands around my waist
Just let the music play
We’re hand in hand
Chest to chest
And now we’re face to face

I wanna take you away
Lets escape into the music
DJ let it play
I just can’t refuse it
Like the way you do this
Keep on rockin to it
Please don’t stop the
Please don’t stop the music

I wanna take you away
Lets escape into the music
DJ let it play
I just can’t refuse it
Like the way you do this
Keep on rockin to it
Please don’t stop the
Please don’t stop the
Please don’t stop the music

Baby are you ready cause its getting close
Don’t you feel the passion ready to explode
What goes on between us no one has to know
This is a private show (oh)

Do you know what you started
I just came here to party
But now we’re rockin on the dancefloor
Acting naughty
Your hands around my waist
Just let the music play
We’re hand in hand
Chest to chest
And now we’re face to face

I wanna take you away
Lets escape into the music
DJ let it play
I just can’t refuse it
Like the way you do this
Keep on rockin to it
Please don’t stop the
Please don’t stop the
Please don’t stop the music

Ma ma se, ma ma sa
Ma ma coo sa
Ma ma se, ma ma sa
Ma ma coo sa (5x)

Please don’t stop the music (2x)

I wanna take you away
Lets escape into the music
DJ let it play
I just can’t refuse it
Like the way you do this
Keep on rockin to it
Please don’t stop the
Please don’t stop the music

I wanna take you away
Lets escape into the music
DJ let it play
I just can’t refuse it
Like the way you do this
Keep on rockin to it
Please don’t stop the
Please don’t stop the
Please don’t stop the music

Ma ma se, ma ma sa
Ma ma coo sa
Ma ma se, ma ma sa
Ma ma coo sa (2x)

Please don’t stop the music

James Blunt – You’re Beautiful

17 July, 2008

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won’t lose no sleep on that,
‘Cause I’ve got a plan.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying high,
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it’s time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

You’re Beautiful by James Blunt, video and lyrics

my 10 weeks of Intermediate class

14 July, 2008

8B classFor the last 10 weeks, I have been teaching a General English Intermediate class at Hawthorn English Language Centre. My co-teacher, Teresa, takes the class on Mondays and Tuesdays. All our students are interesting people with different interests and goals. It’s a great mix of nationalities and personalities.

When I first met our class, many students had arrived from hot countries such as Saudi Arabia, or from their country’s summer. Feeling cold hasn’t been much of a problem in our classroom though, as the heating keeps the room toasty and a little stuffy.

We learnt a lot over the past 10 weeks. I really liked … but … was terrible!

If you haven’t already, class would you please complete the evaluation of this course by completing the survey at http://www.hawthornenglish.com/melbournesurvey

New paragraph with more info…

I’d never been to The Big Bouquet before, a farm for gerbera flowers and alpacas. Natasha, the staff guide, informed us about the alpaca coming from the camel family, and also that gerberas live a better life with just a little water and a drop of bleach!

Sadly this is our last week together as class 8B. After the break week all our students will move on to bigger and better things. Some will continue studying general English but many will go on to academic English – probably they want to sleep in a couple hours more! Good luck to you all in your future studies and I hope you’ve enjoyed everything you’ve learned these past 10 weeks. Cheers!
