    Today's meeting of our "Young English" club has been dedicated to St. Valentine's Day which is celebrated in the whole world on February, 14.  
I offered my students to discuss the main symbols of this holiday and to become poets.
So I told my students the legend of the St. Valentine's Day origin and they enriched their vocabulary with new words connected with this holiday.

   After having watched the educational presentation and done some tests, my students practised in writing poems.

   Then we created our own Valentine cards, signed them and greeted one another with this lovely holiday.
At the end of our meeting we watched a funny movie about oddbods and their happy Valentine day.
Enjoy the watching and have fun( the video was taken from Oddbods - Official Channel):

Happy St. Valentine's Day! ;)

So let's find out when spring will come. And shadow certainly knows it ;)
People have always paid attention to different animals' behaviour and believed that it could help to predict weather.
For example, people in ancient Rome celebrated Hedgehog Day. They observed a hedgehog whether it could see its shadow or not. In the northern Germany people watched a badger. This custom is considered to be brought into the USA from the western Europe.
For a long time groundhog observing was only a custom, but on February 2, 1886 a funny article appeared in one of the newspapers. It's said that a groundhog could predict the weather on the Turkey mountain in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania .
If this funny animal can see its shadow - spring will come after six weeks.
And if it can't see its shadow - we'll have an early spring/
So it's high time to find out the groundhog's verdict. And here it is
