La Glorieta park. Siles

Parque de la Glorieta
 The "Parque de la Glorieta" is a park of Siles where the children go to play, boys go to chat and adults go to talk. It´s a park with a lot of trees (pines, olives, cypresses) flowers in spring and grass. There is a bowling alley and another one for Petanka. There are also games for babies. 
From here you can enjoy a nice view of mountains around Siles and the valley of Guadalimar river.

Agua square. Siles

Plaza del agua in Siles
 The Plaza del Agua is a square surrounded by old houses and big trees. It has got a fountain in its centre and some benches. Children play football in this place and old people sit down in the benches to talk when the weather is hot. The town hall was in this square, but now it is in a new building near hear. 
We like this square a lot because it is very nice and quiet.

Watch this video in which the Simpsons explain the use of the present continuous.
After that, prepare these activities:
1)Look for similar videos in youtube where the use of the simple present is explained. Add them to your favourites and then show them to your classmates.
2) Make your own video to show the way we use either the Present continuous or the simple present, then upload your video to youtube and embed it to this blog.
