The last lesson before our well-deserved holidays really provided a lot of variety!
At the beginning, we had the possibility to get the translation of some unknown words that appear in the funny poem “Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Besides other vocabulary items, the word “spake” was revealed as an old form of the simple past from “to speak”.
After that, we received some interesting facts about the influenza vaccine in the USA. Eva and Corinna informed us e. g. that approximately 36,000 people die from the flu every year. An amazing fact I didn't know before, did you?
What the pupils of the other course didn’t like very much was the fact that we needed their classroom in the second part of our English lesson in order to watch a film. I think this film called “Gentleman gegen Cowboy” was a great alternative for the event on Tuesday we aren´t allowed to take part in (at the University of Regensburg) (which from my point of view is a real pity L) - Thanks to the organizers who invited us first and made us look forward to this “election party” just to tell us later we can´t come! Well, but that’s not the point under discussion now – I should give a statement about the film! Personally, I liked it very much as it didn’t only compare the politics of the two nominees, but also their private and public lives.
Now, let´s see who will win the exciting “battle” on Tuesday – Bush or Kerry - and let’s all have our own little “election parties” at home!
