Another school year is coming to an end...

Yes, it is true. Language exams have already started last weekend and slowly we come towards our final lessons. This year I do not have much stress, since I do not work at a language school and the pressure is less, but unfortunately some personal problems have not let me relax as I wanted to, this year.

Beginning September, my students and I had many ideas, most of which we published on this blog.

Looking back at my posts I see that we managed to cover many areas of interest and most of the kids took part with enthusiasm!

The projects included:

  • Cooking recipies and videos, including a project involving Jamie Oliver's ideas about school dinners

  • "What is your personality" videos

  • Hobbies (Freizeit) descriptions

  • Newspaper project

  • Googling project

  • Making videos and writing texts about the environment, including Greenpeace projects

  • A tribute to German movies

  • The "love & hate" video based on Blumetopf's song "Liebe und Hass"

  • Writing about school

  • The most loved "Superheroes project"

  • Our Christmas project, including recipies, traditions, compositions about the kids' favourite Xmas holiday and videos with wishes and songs plus a movie party just before Christmas Eve

  • And last but not least, the traditional "book-movie" project in the end of the year

I also include some notes on the seminars I have attended this year and I would like to thank all the instructors and professors who gave me their permission to do so.

This blog will go on with some more notes of a seminar I will be attending as well as with pics from my favourite girls' "graduation" and will continue with some more personal posts and pictures, like every year during the summer.

I would like to thank all my students who have put up with me this year, for participating in every crazy thing that came into my mind! I wish you the best with your exams guys! And of course I wouldn't forget the parents who trust me with their kids!

Have a great summer!!
