This video is a presentation of Bradfield College, a British school in England. Let's learn a little bit more about this school. Read this text about the school:
Founded in 1850 by Thomas Stevens, and set in the village of Bradfield amidst unspoilt Berkshire countryside, Bradfield College enjoys a well-established reputation for being one of the country’s leading co-educational, independent schools through its provision of academic excellence and a well-rounded education.
The College welcomes pupils from Britain and overseas; the pupil body numbers approximately 770, comprising 480 boys and 290 girls from 13 to 18 years of age.
Boys and girls enter Bradfield at 13+ and many more join the College’s popular and vibrant Sixth Form, where they can choose to study either the IB or A Levels. Faulkner’s, a state-of-the-art boarding house, is specially designed to help all girls and boys make a happy and successful transition from prep school (we recruit from more than 70) to senior school; pupils then move into one of 11 senior houses.
We offer an unrivalled sports and activities programme for all our pupils which ensures that every girl and boy has the opportunity to develop valuable skills outside the classroom, wherever their interests lie.

Una forma original de aprenderte los verbos irregulares es crear tu propia canción. Mira algunos ejemplos. Otra forma es agruparlos según sus formas: algunos son todos iguales (put put put), otros sólo cambian una forma (come came come), otros cambian dos formas (pay paid paid) y finalmente los que todas las formas son dintintas (begin began begun). Eso te puede ayudar a memorizarlos si te acuerdas en qué grupo están.
