The get-together Blog

7th December 2016

Divided into 3 groups of four. Each group was given an article to read from the English press: Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, Daily Telegraph.

After analysis of the article and working on new vocabulary, one person read the article aloud. The other members of the group asked questions to make sure that the article had been understood.

The articles concerned :

  • Olivier Giroud's current situation with Arsenal,
  • A convicted paedophile who was murdered with his own trumpet in a cathedral in Buenos Aires
  • A man who punched a kangaroo in the face to stop it strangling his dog.

Here's the list of words I noted :
