Happy International Translation Day

Картинки по запросу translation day
Hello my dear friends! 
On September, 30 we celebrated the International Translation Day. 
We know that translators are very important because they help to keep on approaching different cultures through languages. But at the same time translators have to be very attentive to their work, because they are those people who enterprit the meaning of unknown words and phrases to other people. Sometimes because of the translators' unattentiveness we can get very funny meanings.

My students' projects

Hello my dear friends!
 It's already the third week of our study after our summer holidays and all my students have learnt a lot of new things. 
So I've decided to create a special post devoted to my students works which I've found to be special. 
Every time when my students do their homework, their tasks vary due to their creativeness. So it's high time to share them with the public.
During the topic "My family, friends and I" my seventh graders were asked to write a post about their family members, who influenced them. Here are two works which my students and I have found the most informative and emotional.
" My name is Kate. I am a seventh former. Let me tell you about my mother. She is very special for me, because she teaches me how to cook. We cook a lot of different dishes and always try to invent something new and special.
I'd like to be as positive as my mother are."
Kate Popsulis, form 7.
"My name is Lizy. 
My Granny is special for me, because she teaches me to be good, to bring all things to their end. She taught me to be cheerful. 
In my childhood, when my parents were at work, she was always with me. We have a lot of fun when we are together.
I'd like to be like my Granny, because she is a very supportive and positive person.
I love my Grandmother and thank her for everything."
Lizy Riznyk, form 7.
Great thanks to my students for their creative works.
To be continued...

Back to school!

Картинки по запросу welcome back to school animated gif
Hello September and welcome back to school!
On September 1 all Ukrainian schools opened their doors for their students.
The first of September or the Day of Knowledge (that's how we call this holiday) evokes very different emotions.
Most of the students feel like this

on that special day.
Even when some students finally find strength to enter their schools, they will have some problems with finding their classrooms ;)

Why is it so difficult to start a new day at school after summer holidays? Maybe, because we don't start this special day properly. 
I've prepared several tips how to avoid stress at the very beginning of a new school year( these tips will be useful both for students and teachers):
Картинки по запросу welcome back to school animated gif

  • Approximately 2 or 3 weeks before the beginning of your school year  go to bed and get up early, so  your body will be reconstructed to a new regime;
  • Try to remember pleasant and interesting moments to create a positive mood;
  • Buy new stuff for your new school year: pens, pencils, copy-books etc.;
  • Try to find strength to revise the information you have learnt before.
Remember that school is a place where you can meet your friends, learn new and interesting information, discuss exciting topics and make your dreams come true.
Wish you easy start and interesting discoveries!
