Time flies! And our Festival of Foreign Languages has come to an end. We hope that everyone had a wonderful time during our Festival!
Let’s look through the pages of the Festival diary.
The first day was devoted to the Ceremony of the Festival Opening. Though it took only 20 minutes we had a chance to listen to the Hymn of “X-Stream”, to learn how to greet in 6 languages, to get acquainted with the plan of the Festival, and to get to know why it is important to learn Foreign Languages.
On that day, the 10th of February, the Spelling Bee contest and Young Interpreters Contest were held. We successfully demonstrated our knowledge in spelling words and interpreting. We are able to think quickly and present well! There are a lot of winners of the contests!
On Tuesday (the 11th of February) we were offered a wonderful opportunity to get acquainted with the diverse world of the British and American literature. Every lesson on this day was like a treasure trove for our imagination, abilities and skills. Our junior pupils felt the magic atmosphere of fairy tales. And our senior pupils enjoyed the magnificent world of prose and poetry in English! Was it interesting to get to know about the history of the British and American literature, to get acquainted with the British and American writers and their works? Of course, it was!
– On Wednesday we discovered a lot of interesting things about our Motherland and other countries. We learnt more about the character of different nations, their cuisines, customs and traditions. The virtual journeys to Great Britain, America, China and France, the trips around our Belarus, certainly, helped us form a correct opinion of the national character of these countries, their people in all their conditions and all their habits. The lessons, full of curious facts, were held on the 12th of February.
– Thursday (the 13th of February) was also devoted to music. We remember that singing beautiful melodies is one thing, but to deliver the text so that everyone understands it, even in a foreign language, has to be worked at very hard! We were lucky to listen to our gymnasium best hits and to take part in the contest on that day. “Rising Stars” Concert was held during the breaks. We really did our best and worked hard to succeed on our Day of Music!
– It is great that we proved that not only on Friday (the 14th of February) but also all the year round we are ready to “…keep love in our hearts. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.” We celebrated St. Valentine’s Day. We enjoyed our Valentine’s lessons! We received a lot of Valentine’s cards. We sent them to everybody, we told about our love to our parents, friends, teachers and classmates, to the whole world! We always remember: a loving heart is the beginning of all the knowledge!
