To practise a bit with the 3rd person in singular you can find this exercise but remember that the most important thing is to distinguish between /S, Z/ on the one hand and /IZ/ on the other (with the extra syllable). See you in class.
Some students say they have problems with phonetics because they haven't worked with them before and they don't understand the symbols very well. Don't worry because you'll get used (acostumbrado) to them little by little, but I've found this web page that could help you with them and especially with the pronunciation. You can download this programme to practise.

Internet gives us a lot of opportunities to practise your English. Apart from the on line newspapers and dictionaries, you can find many web pages on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and so on. Even in the web page of our school you can find quite a lot of interesting links to learn and practise your English.Here you have some examples:
http://www.elllo.org/ : very intersting, with a lot of material to practise
http://www.vaughantelevision.com/ : with different levels. There is also a radio station but I think it's much more interesting on tv.
As you probably know, the best way to find the lyrics of a song is using Google and introducing the first line between quotation marks; e.g. “Yesterday, all my troubles seem so far away”. The other possibility is to join the title with the author with the symbol + in between, e.g. Yesterday+The Beatles. Nevertheless, here you have some sites to go through:
Other interesting sites
http://www.free-ed.net/free-ed/: free courses of different topics in American English with documentaries
Your textbook web page
http://www.oup.com/elt/global/products/englishfile/elementary/ : this is the web page for your book of English. Here you have more activities to do.
