this is once more our "English in the open air labs".
High school students meeting Mediterranean cruise passengers to practice English and experiencing it as behaviour, experience, integrating school programs.
This year, our students have designed a logo for the project and offered itineraries to visit Livorno - Leave your footprint in Livorno. Then Camilla, Emma, Tommaso, Matteo and Alana performed both in Piazza del Municipio and at the railway station in Livorno.
The laboratories in the open air have been more successful than ever, with the participation of Eurocontact Plus ONLUS in the program called Scuole App-erte, http://scuoleapperte.it/ designed by ITI G. Galilei Livorno and Liceo Cecioni.
The aim of the laboratories is to be open through languages to all people who want to speak English to B English 2, one more identity to be added to the one/ones we already have, feeling confident that being able to communicate and feeling at home wherever English is spoken is a great advantage.
On June 14 pupils welcomed English speaking Mediterranean cruise passengers while getting off the shuttles in Piazza del Municipio, giving them with a visit card information and roses.
On June 30 pupils met passengers at the railway station on June 30th, offering maps of Tuscan cities and roses, while a matinée was performed by Emma singing The Rose by Janis Joplin as a soloist accompanied by Tommaso playing the violin.
All initiatives to highlight students' talents with joy and freshness,
English is one more identity to be richer and able to compare different realities. A tool, the second language, to design personal projects, according to the future each one of us wants to foresee, always aware that also the future is a time to be shared.
A video has been shot all season round, with all students, and the DVD is available to everybody who wants to support the initiatives of our NPO.
Bilingualism is an advantage for the species, that is to say each one of us. Don't you agree?
Join us and participate.
