We would like to thank who works to write comments on the web. It's such an important contribution to our classes, they open perspectives to look through. Writing is very demanding and allows the language to express so much of its potentiality.
I would also like to invite who lives far from here, in English speaking countries and have relationships with our students, to tell us something about their direct experience.
Aussie, Australia, is a universe to discover; having "comments" from there, would be "pioneering" these connections we do believe in, this way to study English, true English thanks to true and authentic people.
Having photographs too would be great; do not forget all the times you want to upload some, you have to modify them reducing the number of pixels, the minimum possible amount is fine for the Internet.
Let's move to different continents: South America and Africa.
These pages are the beginning and the end of a documentary set in Brazil, it takes place in the Amazon rain forest, home of millions of plants and animals, in danger to be destroyed. The reason is extensive deforestation due to human development and illegal operations to find precious metals.
What do you know about that? How can it be saved? Who is working to do it? Do you think we could be helpful?
Next photographs are from one more documentary by the "National Geographic".
Teenager Fulani boys are asked to demonstrate their capability to become adults returning home with a healthy cattle, after finding food for their cows in an arid region near the Sahara desert.
These are passages of the story, can you guess the whole of it?
What do you think of such an experience boys are asked to face?
Do you know any remarkable Assia very well known for her writing?
Do you know the meaning of the name?
Enjoy your English, it will be a pleasure reading you and working in class,
Anna - Coordinator
