The Baby and the Alarm System

At the beginning of the lesson, Miri and Marina presented the short story "The Baby". They did it very well.
In my opinion, it's much too brutal to punish a baby so hard. I think, babies at such an age aren't able to differentiate between what's right and what's wrong. For this reason, the baby's father must change his mind, which he finally does.
While they were presenting their short story, the alarm system downstairs was set off, because somebody hadn't closed the door properly. Ann-Kathrin managed to stop the noise after a while.
After the presentation we talked about the text some of us had prepared for homework. We tried to translate some sentences which weren't really easy. In my opinion, the most difficult thing to translate was "I struck oil", which doesn't mean what some of thought: "Ich fand Öl" :-)
At the end of the lesson Mr. Ringeisen told us something about the artist William Turner and the Turner Prize.
