Photos and comments from World's Largest Lesson

Dear English-To-Go.com staff,
We have been happy to study all the materials you offered during this week and especially today. The students of Khmelnitskiy National University, in the Ukraine, have participated in your World's Largest Lesson on Landmines. There was a lively discussion during the lesson, which took place on May 26, 2005 at 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. local time (Kyiv). The students expressed their ideas concerning the growing danger of landmines in postwar times around the world. Thanks again and again for the opportunity given and for the well-prepared materials for teaching and learning English.

Dear English To Go team,
We conducted the WLL yesterday. The students and teachers enjoyed it, many of them were doing it for the first time. “It was a very interesting and unusual lesson, we would like to know more about the landmines, and how to solve this problem”, said 6th graders. In fact, they asked their teachers to continue the lesson the next day, so as to learn more about the problem, and they also wish to know why ETG conducts the WLL. Our school headmistress came to the Internet-class in the morning. Addressing the children and teachers, she said: “It is a big event in which our school takes part every year. It is a celebration of cooperation and good will, and it shows you that the opportunities for communication with the help of ICT are really great”. We took pictures, and sent in confirmations. It is a really good opportunity to show our students that English is not only an international language, it can be used for solving very real problems.

At Active Institute we have a tapestry of cultures and everybody enjoyed the lesson. Some of the students are from countries where there are still landmines and they talked about them to the rest of the class. Most enjoyable lesson. Thank you.

Here are some photos of our combined Intermediate / Upper Intermediate classes doing work on the Landmine lesson. They made posters after completing the lesson which were taken to the final assembly for the term, then were displayed on the main notice-board near reception for everyone to see. We had a great lesson, and everyone really got into it.
