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

We  have had good times with our teachers they were great in teaching.
Teresa always talk about her daughters and about their adventures.
Vernon was jokes maker and everybody interested to attend in class.
Our class excursion:
we had two excursions firstly with Teresa in Hanging Rock everybody enjoyed there and
we had a barbecue.
The second excursion was with Vernon, fantastic  and terrible weather, was fun and relaxing.
We went to The Big Bouquet to see a farm for gerbera flowers and alpacas before we go there i had
this function:
Alpacas = Bird
Alpacas = animal
when we came back to Hawthorn everybody was happy but we had a good commander>>>>

The last ten weeks, I have been studying English at Hawthorn Melbourne Language Centre, in Melbourne, Australia.

My experience have been great!!

I’ve meet many friends from different countries (Saudi Arabia, Korea, Colombia, Turkey, Taiwan, Brazil) and I’ve improved my English thanks to the help of our teachers Teresa and Vernon.

In this time, we have done a lot of activities from hard work in grammar topics to excursions to touristic places here in Melbourne. All of this activities have had possible to rise our English level and our friendship.

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

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!
