After the autumn break we continued with a very current theme: the US presidential election in November. We studied several articles related to the topic, took a look at some statistics, watched a few (funny) video clips and naturally talked about the future scenarios. The discussion was very active! There was wondering, worrying but also calm attitude. We were eager to see what would happen. Now we of course know that Donald Trump got elected.
We had one exceptional lesson because the school photos were taken and people kept walking in and out of the classroom. During that time we talked about stereotypes and how nobody is immune to them. We just need to understand that stereotypes do not represent the truth or tell anything about an individual.
In the final lesson of the week we had another lovely guest, Marian Tumanyan from Armenia. I reckon Marian was the first Armenian person anyone of us had ever met. Therefore we were very interested in everything she told us about her home country, language and culture. It seems to be a very interesting and beautiful country!
Here is Marian teaching us the alphabet.
