Mackintosh, Warhol, Hockney and Spencer - all to be seen on a rainy February day in Glasgow...
36 students of 4th grade both Tourism and Social Sciences Upper Secondary School had left for the Scottish pearl with a clear aim: exploring the highlights of its cultural and industrial capitals. Language learning goes far beyond workbooks and conjugations and becomes rather mental attitude than learning grammar rules by heart. Breathing in the fascinating atmosphere of sparkling Edinburgh, admiring Glaswegian murals and spending some amazing moments close to Dolly, the sheep, the first animal clone worldwide. This and much much more was part of a haggis and ale seven day trip which all our 36 students will still keep in their mind when opening the student's book on page 66....
Anche quest’anno il soggiorno linguistico a Roma è andato benissimo: 26 alunni delle terze classi hanno frequentato, per cinque giorni, gli ottimi corsi della scuola DILIT, incentrati sulle diverse competenze linguistiche e sul coinvolgimento attivo dei ragazzi. Il pomeriggio erano previste diverse attività: si andava dalla passeggiata nel centro storico al corso di cucina italiana, alla visita dei luoghi del Caravaggio. L’ultimo giorno c’è stata anche un’interessante visita guidata a Montecitorio. Gli alunni erano tutti ospitati da famiglie italiane, con cui hanno potuto parlare a lungo, in modo che fosse un’esperienza di immersione linguistica totale. Un’esperienza da ripetere!

For my sister’s wedding she wore an emerald dress. I realized only recently that something bigger and deeper was at work. [...] It was on the road between Dublin and Cork when it hit me that the greens that decorated Mom’s days were the greens that decorate Ireland." (Anonymous)
