- Monster attacks

- Creature attacks

- Climatic events

- Geologic events

- Infections

- Mankind

   - Alien attacks

   - Space rocks

   - Superhero battles

   - Sharknado (= a tornado made up of sharks...

     up to now, only one has been shot !)...

... are all located on U.S.A. maps -you can also view them all gathered on a unique map.

This flowchart's quite funny, and it's also useful to practise modal auxiliaries (If you like furry tails, you must / you should / you could / you can't...), negative forms (People who can't stand cold blooded animals will not / are not going to /...) -and specific vocabulary too : you can revise and improve it by finding other animals in the same category/species as the ones pictured on the illustration.

Last, but not least, more advanced learners may train their writing skills...

Caldwell Tanner's flowchart pretends (1) dogs are "companions", while cats (or rabbits, hamsters...) are "roommates you have to feed" : do you agree with him ? Why (not) ? Explain your answer and illustrate it with examples :o)

(1)  Beware, "pretend" is a false friend to French learners -check it !

This Anti-Counterfeiting TradeAgreement, negotiated in secret, would :
- turn Internet operators into a private copyright police ;
- impose harsh and unfair penalties on users and consumers ;
- harm access to medicines and to essential knowledge in poor countries ;
- inhibit innovation ;
- establish new anti-democratic policy-making that bypass parliaments.

Let's stop ACTA !
