World Book Day

animated book are my life gif

“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”

Anna Quindlen
World Book Day is celebrated in the whole world on April 23. It is a special day in the world literature because April 23 is the date of birth or death of famous poets and writers such as William Shakespeare, M.Servantes, Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, Maurice Druon, Halldór Laxness, Dzh.Pla and Manuel Mejía Vallejo. Celebrating the World Book Day, we all need to pay special attention to the important role of books in the preservation and enhancement of the culture of every country. After all, the book  is the best helper in our common efforts to protect and enrich the cultural heritage of mankind.
Through the book we get access not only to knowledge, but also ideas, spiritual and moral values, to understanding the beauty and creative achievements of mankind. The book allows every culture to talk about itself, introduces the customs and traditions of different peoples.
That's why books take a very important part in our life. 
Do you remember that time when you asked your mother to read you a book before going to bed?
Or when you learnt reading by yourself and read book by book
And books became your guides to various worlds, your friends during unusual adventures.
So reading is good, it's quite obvious. But what book to choose?
That is the question. Of course, your choice depends on your likes. My only advice for you is read books in the original. And if you like to touch a real book and turn over the pages,
 go to the shop and buy a new book or just take it in the library.
But reading online is nice, too. So I offer you to visit these sites where you can find any book you want and download or read it online for free:
And remember reading books makes you better;)

Useful advice: Successful English Lesson

Being a teacher is a very responsible thing: you must give your knowledge to your students in such a way that they will enjoy getting it and you will see the results of your work.Being a foreign language teacher is twice as hard, because you must teach your students in an unknown for them language. During my pedagogical work I meet different students of different ages. Some of them are hard-working and eager to learn something new, some of them are very fast and naughty, some of them are very slow, and some of them are real lazybones. But no matter what kind of children they are, they are our students, who enter the classroom to learn something new every day.
So I've decided to put together all the ways that can help to make the lessons successful and interesting.
1. Classroom language. If you want your students to learn the language you teach them, you should speak in it at your lessons. It must be a rule for you and your students.
Even if your students make mistakes, they shouldn't be afraid of speaking English, because that's why we all gather in the classroom - to learn speaking English.
And here are some useful expressions at the lessons:
For teachers:
This is a quiz for non-native speaker teachers of English. Here is some classroom language that you might find useful. It' s for different ages and levels of pupils/students. British English.
And for students:
2. Learning materials. Select the materials for your lessons very carefully. Remember that they should be:
  • easy for understanding;
  • informative;
  • and interesting for children.
For example, for learning new vocabulary you can use pictures, photos, talking flashcards and real objects.
Placards, tables, graphics and presentations will help to explain the rules and your students will learn them better.
Use cartoons, films and educational videos at your lessons. They are more interesting for children than boring books.
Choose the texts for reading on the topics which are interesting for teenagers.
Useful sites:
3. Be creative! Make every your lesson special and unusual. And be patient and ready to help your students.
Remember that
So don't limit your capabilities and make your lessons successful. 
Wish you good luck in our creative work;)

Great people: Long live the Queen

This touching photo was made to honour Queen Elizabeth's II birthday, which was on April 21.
Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne on February 6, 1952, after the death of her father, King George the Sixth. The coronation took place on June 2, 1953 in Westminster Abbey. Elizabeth was only 25 years old when she became the queen, and  she has already been the queen for several decades.
In fact, Her Majesty celebrates her birthday twice a year ( and it's really cool,because you can get twice as much presents:) )on April 21 and in June.

The International Earth Day

My today's post is devoted to the International Earth Day which the whole world celebrates on April 22.This holiday is the day of our common home which we all call the Earth. People have been living on it for the whole their lives, but we still know so little information about it.

They are conferences, exhibitions, closing traffic on the busy streets of major cities, cleaning and tree planting.

International Children's Book Day

On April 2 we have a special day - the International Children's Book Day. It is a yearly event sponsored by the International Board on Books for Young People. This holiday was founded in 1967 and devoted to Hans Christian Andersen's birthday.On this day a lot of interesting activities are organized: they include writing competitions, announcements of book awards and events with authors of children's literature.
My parents brought me up with great love of reading. That's why I like reading different books. Today I've decided to prepare a list of children's books and I hope that I have prepared something special for your little readers.
So here is the list of children's books which are loved by many readers in the whole world:
 Winnie-the-Pooh by Allan Alexander Milne is an amazing collection of stories about kindness and friendship.
  "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens is a wonderful story that teaches us not to be selfish.
 "The Jungle Book" by Rudyard Kipling is a story that tells about life among animals who remind people.
 "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll is a classical  satire on a real world.
 "Howl's Moving Castle" by Diana Wynne Jones is a mysterious story full of exciting adventures.
"The Adventures of Mog" by Judith Kerr is a lovely collection of stories about a little cat.
 "The Chronicles of Narnia" by C.S. Lewis is an imaginary world where the main characters and the readers learn to keep love, friendship and care.
"The Lord of the Rings" by J.R.R. Tolkien as well as "The Hobbit"
 are the greatest books not only for children but for adults, too. These books tell us about the eternal fight between kindness and evil and show the importance of every living creature on the Earth, and the strength of unity.
This series of books about Harry Potter by Joanne Rowling is very special for me. I remember how my younger brother and I waited for every new book, how we spent every evening reading stories about young wizard and his friends.
"Freaky Friday" by Mary Rodgers shows the eternal misunderstanding between children and their parents and how to deal with it.
"The Maze Runner" series by James Dashner is for those who like fantasy and science. This book represents another point of view about our future life on the Earth.
"The DUFF" and many other books by Kody Keplinger tell us about teenagers' life, their problems, fears and how they cope with them.
Of course this list can be endless, but I tried to mention those books which impressed me very much.
And at the end of my post I'd like to share with you some useful links where you can find books for children and teenagers for free

Teach your children to love books because books can give us the magic.
