In the end, I found the song!!!!

In fact, I've listened to a tune for a classical American film series on TVE1 channel several times and since then, I can't stop humming it! It's used as the soundtrack for a tv teaser and it's so catchy that I couldn't help surfing the net to find out about its author. Indeed, John Mayer is supposed to be its composer and Lana del Rey seems to have sung it inspired by an older version. I'm not very sure about that, but anyway, I'm still looking into it. Any information about this issue will be welcome. Meanwhile, let's enjoy!

Revision

Past Perfect contrasted with other tenses. 1 2 3

To revise conditionals and other grammar points, I strongly recommend this website. I found it by chance, but it turned out to be really useful. It has been built by a wide team of teachers from IES Gabriel García Márquez, in Madrid, and it's worth having a look on it.
Congratulations for your wonderful job!

Gerunds vs. Infinitives

Most of the times it's very hard to distinguish whether we have to use a gerund or an infinitive after certain verbs. The best way to get used to them is practising. For this reason, I've been looking for some interactive tests to make it bearable. I hope you'll find them useful.

Cheer up! Test 0 1 2 3
