European Day of Languages

A nice activity initiated by Lithuanian teacher Silvana ended with us having 9 postcards from 9 European countries.

As a result we could try reading messages in 9 languages, some of which were like an alien language to us, especially Greek. What a surprise! Serbian was soooooo easy, much alike Russian. It was a discovery to me!

I did this reading-of-postcards activity with my 11.c. I only hope they enjoyed it as much as I did myself.

A few days after the Day of Languages I received one more postard - from Turkey. That is why there is another picture with Turkish postcard added.

My new classes

First I met 7a and I liked them immediately because they are sweet and nice kids. Here is how they placed themselves on the knowledge ladder. They faced the task with responsibility...


Then I met 9a and 9b classes (all new students to me). Look at their self-evaluation. Hard to see because of the small picture but they must remember where they placed themselves. I guess, some were modest, some self-confident but I did not know anything about them at that time and I did not make any corrections. I will know how realistic they were in a few months...

My class on 1st September 2009

My students in the box

The Smilebox loads slowly and there are boring ads but it is still possible to see the lovely friendly funny tender faces of those who are "mine" this year.
