How to share a youtube video

I think this could be very usefull. I found it on blogger's help:

Embedding a YouTube Video

To embed a video from YouTube, just follow these simple steps:
  1. Click on the "Share" button underneath the YouTube video.
  2. Select "Show more," and then click on the Blogger icon.
  3. Depending on whether or not you're signed in to your blog, you might have to enter in your username and password in the new window that pops up.
  4. At the top of the new window, choose the blog you would like to post to from the drop-down menu.
  5. Publish your post!
Alternatively, you can copy the embed code and paste it into your blog. Just click on "Share" and then on "Embed" to find the embed code. Copy the code, then paste it into your blog while on the "Edit HTML" tab (as opposed to the "Compose" tab).

I was trying to find a video but I couldn't. So, here's the link from where I took the info.
Hope this usefull :)

This is a summary of the last two classes.
We began Unit 1. The topic of the first part of this Unit was "Identity".
We did a listening exercise about "What defines who a person is?" in which four friends were talking and giving their different opinions. At the end, they decided the three most important things which defined who a person is were gender, clothes and work.
Also, we did some revision about the phase "You know". It is used to give yourself time to think what to say next, to introduce examples and explanations.
In the speaking part, we had the different titles for a magazine guestionnaire and a list of twelve questions. We had to choice the most suitable title for these questions. It was "What´s your attitude to relationships".
Moreover, we worked with a partner, we had to write ten questions to include in our questionaire using the titles which we were given using "Indirect questions":
- I'd be happy to tell/to answer if
- I wouldn't mind telling/answering
- I wouldn't tell the researcher...
- Would you mind telling me...
- Do you think you could tell me?
- Could I ask you..?
- Could you tell me?
- I wonder if....
