Coronavirus Rhapsody (Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen)



Is this a sore throat?
Is this just allergies?
Caught in a lockdown
No escape from reality
Don’t touch your eyes
Just hand sanitize quicklyyyyy

I’m just a poor boy, no job security
Because of easy spread, even though
Washed your hands, laying low
I look out the window, the curve doesn’t look flatter to me, to me

Mama, just killed a man
Didn’t stay inside in bed
I walked by him, now he’s dead Mama,
life was so much fun

But now I’ve caught this unforgiving plague
Mama, oooooh

Didn’t mean to make them die
If I’m not back to work this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if people didn’t matter

Too late, my time has come
Send shivers down my spine
Social isolation time
Goodbye everybody,
I’ve got the flu
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth...

Mama, oooooh I don’t wanna die
I sometimes wish I never went out at all...
I see a little silhouette of a man

What a douche, what a douche
Did he even wash his hands though
No more toilet paper
Very very frightening me
Gotta lay low (gotta lay low)
Gotta lay low (gotta lay low)
I’m just a poor boy, facing mortality
He's just a poor boy, facing mortality
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Touch your face, wash your hands,
will you wash your hands?

BISMILLAH NO WE WILL NOT WASH OUR HANDS!
(WASH YOUR HANDS!)
BISMILLAH WE WILL NOT WASH YOUR HANDS!
(WASH YOUR HANDS!)
WASH YOUR HANDS!
Never, never, never wash your hands
No no no no no...
Mama Mia, Mama Mia, Mama Mia wash your hands!
COVID-19 has a sickness put aside for me, for me, for meeeeeeeeeee
Curve can get much flatter
Anyone can see
Curve can get much flatter
It's our responsibility.

Перевод песни We Shall Overcome

We Shall Overcome

We shall overcome, we shall overcome
We shall overcome, some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
That we shall overcome, some day

We'll walk hand in hand, we'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand, some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
That we shall overcome, some day

We are not afraid, we are not afraid
We are not afraid, today
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe

We shall overcome, we shall overcome
We shall overcome, some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe

Billie Eilish - "No time to die", James Bond' 25



English
I should have known
I'd leave alone
Just goes to show
That the blood you bleed
Is just the blood you own
We were a pair
But I saw you there
Too much to bear
You were my life, but life is far away from fair
Was I stupid to love you?
Was I reckless to help?
Was it obvious to everybody else?

That I'd fallen for a lie
You were never on my side
Fool me once, fool me twice
Are you death or paradise?
Now you'll never see me cry
There's just no time to die

I let it burn
You're no longer my concern
Faces from my past return
Another lesson yet to learn

That I'd fallen for a lie
You were never on my side
Fool me once, fool me twice
Are you death or paradise?
Now you'll never see me cry
There's just no time to die

No time to die
No, no time to die

Fool me once, fool me twice
Are you death or paradise?
Now you'll never see me cry
There's just no time to die

project "films in original" - фильмы на языке оригинала

"Films in original" - проект, в рамках котороо предлагаются отобранные "мягкие" комедии, т.е плавные ненасыщенные кинокартины с стносительно несложным языком. Таким образом, даже у студентов, начиная с уровня pre-intermediate, есть возможность приобщиться к кинопросмотру в оригинале, а студенты более высоких уровней имеют все шансы на настоящее языковое удовольствие, т.к. плейеры снабжены и двуязычными аудиодорожками, и двуязычными субтитрами. 

Безусловно, лучший алгоритм для студентов высокий уровней это английская звуковая дорожка (и, по желанию, англ титры).

Студенты средних уровней могут прибегать к специальному алгоритму :



1. небольшой фрагмент смотрим на английском и с английскими субтитрами (3-5 минут)

2. пересматриваем на русском, с целью уточнения контекстов
3. так же обрабатываем следующий фрагмент.

Таким образом, проработка фильма может занять и месяц.

Level-up (для всех уровней) - по ходу просмотра фиксировать наиболее интересные и новые для себя слова, формируя "словарный улов" из фильма.  Благодаря эмоциональному запоминанию такие слова прочно хранятся в памяти.

Демонстрация плейера.

Alex Whitman is a New Yorker sent to Las Vegas to oversee a construction project. There he meets Isabel Fuentes, and some serious chemistry brings them together for one night. But Alex doesn't see Isabel again until three months later, when he learns she is pregnant. On a whim and prayer, he proposes.

My funny Valentine - Frank Sinatra

Each day is Valentine's day...



My funny valentine
Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you're my favourite work of art
Is your figure less than greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?
But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine stay
Each day is valentines day
Is your figure less than greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?
But don't you change one hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine stay
Each day is valentines day
