first of all we would like to tell students who participate in this work how much we appreciate their effort. Some were beginners in October and now English is part of their life, a new horizon to frame the so many contents and interests to share with their mates.
Thank you so much for coming to class with comments and ideas, your homework done, visible and measurable results.
That's why we would also like to invite whoever's reading to join us, it works. Do not forget the Gallery, where you can upload songs and photographs.
Let's go on, then.
All the times we cope with extraordinary people like Yuri Gagarin on our text books, it's an invitation to continue searching for news about them.
Talking about their legacy, trying to understand why they dared so much, is also a way to explore ourselves.
Who is a pioneer? Do we have any nowadays?
We are adding photographs taken from the ESA Monthly Bullettin, February 2011, to celebrate the fifty years of the first launch of Yuri Gagarin into the space.
Would you like to inquire about that too?
What does he have in common with Yuri Gagarin if you think there's anything?
You can describe the photograph taken in Moscow after Gagarin's first flight into the space, and the one with the dove.
In class some students said that recently there has been a documentary on television, about Amelia Earhart, by Alberto Angela. What else then do you know about this pioneer-woman?
Thanks to you Cristina, Franca, Ilaria, Fabio, Nicola, Sara, this page is so remarkable! We should think a little more about people who are so courageous to start a new path, due to their unique perception of reality? Risk? Future? Perspective? What a wish can do? What a dream can signify?
So much to know also with your contribution. It will be a pleasure reading you on other pages too!
Reading you will be a pleasure as usual,
Anna - Coordinator
