Here we are :)

20 Nov


Here we are at last! And it’s so good this blog gives us an opportunity to make new friends and use English for real communication ๐Ÿ™‚


Here is the Italian team:

And here is their introduction:

We go to school in Feltre, in the north east of Italy, not far from Cortina d’ Ampezzo in the Dolomite mountains. Our school is called โ€œ Liceo Dal Piazโ€, it’ s quite big, there are over 700 students. Our class is on theย second floor, we have to move down to the basement when we want to use the IWB to work with e-twinning. In our class there are 23 students and this is our first year here. Weย get on well with each other because everybody is friendly and we joke a lot.
See you
class 1D

    Hi German Team!
    We live two hours away from Cortina.The springboard built for the Winter Olympic games in 1956 is there, but it has no longer been used since 1990. However, the ski tracks used in the Olympics are still open and used by Italian and foreign visitors, including vips ๐Ÿ˜‰ .
    In Cortina, in fact, there are a lot of summer and winter houses where tourists go to spend their holidays.
    Last summer I went to Cortina with my family and I like it a lot. It’s surrounded by beautiful mountains, I’m going to see them in the winter, too.
    Here is a link with some pictures of Cortina:
    Bye, Sonia from Italy

    @ Marie-France
    Well, I agree with you about Venice, it’s fantastic. I remember that three years ago I visited the bell tower in San Marco Square and when I was on the top … the bells started ringing! There was a lot of noise, but I was really excited!
    But there is one thing that I don’t like very much: the high tide. Last year my mum ran in the Venice marathon and in the last part of the competition she had to run in the water!
    Have you ever been to Venice?

    Dear Marie,
    we’re only about one and a half hours drive from Venice, it’s always good to have a nice walk down there every now and then … ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love that city and I was there 1 year and a half ago. Loved every minute of it.
    Venice marathon ! It must be hard to go up and down stairs all the time.

    Hello, my name is Matteo.
    Here is some additional information on the place where we live.
    We go to school in Feltre, in the province territory of Belluno. Belluno and Venice are in the region of Veneto, but Belluno is in the north of the area while Venice is in the south of it. The distance between them is around one and a half hours drive.
    Belluno is next to big mountains, the Dolomites: for me they are the best mountains in Italy, because they get such beautiful shades at sun set – like mount “Croda Rossa”- or because they are good to climb, like “Marmolada”, but above all because of the wonderful scenery they create. On the contrary, Venice is a city on the sea. It is so different from other cities as there are no roads or cars but only small lanes or canals with boats. Some people consider Venice “the city of love” because some girls and boys meet their love there, which makes them fly up and down the stairs … ;)!
    Bye bye, see you soon.
