St. Patrick's Day

Feedback 

St. Patrick's Day is a global celebration of Irish culture on or around March 17. It particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland's patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. 
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in many parts of the world, especially by Irish communities and organizations. Many people wear an item of green clothing on the day. Parties featuring Irish food and drinks that are dyed in green food colour are part of this celebration.
It is a time when children can indulge in sweets and adults can enjoy a "pint" of beer at a local pub. Many restaurants and pubs offer Irish food or drink.

2nd Conditional: If I were a boy

Feedback 
ESO 2 Students:

Here's a song to practise the 2nd Conditional (unit 6):



If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I’d roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted and go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wanted
And I’d never get confronted for it.
'Cause they’d stick up for me.

The Easybeats - "Friday on my mind"

Feedback 
The Easybeats were an Australian rock band which formed in Sidney, Australia, in late 1964, and disbanded at the end of 1969. They were the antipodean echo to the style and sound of The Beatles in Britain, and the first rock and roll act from Australia to score an international pop hit with the 1966 single "Friday on my mind".
