Bend it like Beckam



Talking about this film on today's lesson (Choices for FCE, Unit 7), I found it really interesting to post a link with women's history in sports (found on burlington books site)

It is amazing how hard women had to fight for their right to take part in sports and how important this was for women's emancipation

Hi Dora! Here in Germany the children are reading the book of it in English lessons. I think in class 7, but I am not sure. Just became very popular through this in last years. When I was in school we did not read a lot of books together in class, and in any language lessons we didn't read any book. I think this idea is pretty good, but I think some teachers still choose too boring books for the children and some are working with the books for the half school year that's definitely too long and then they wonder why the children learn too less. Ouch! Do you know the German author James Krüss? We wrote some very nice and fantastic stories a lot around the sea since he growed up in Northgermany. I have a very famous christmas poem (it is called "Die Weihnachtsmaus") of him. If you like I can send it you to you for using it in your German lessons. Just let know. Take good care! Love, Jenny
