- About forty pupils work on our website, - Natalia Ivanivna began. - But today the weather is rainy and cold, children are hungry and tired after school, that's why only the most enthuziastic are present here. - She pointed at us. We six stood in the American House (ETRC) in Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.
- Well, I'm very glad to see all of them, - Tom Tasker smiled.
Thomas Tasker is a Senior English Language Fellow, a grantee of the U.S. State Department program. He's going to stay in Ukraine for a year. He teaches our Ukrainian teachers of English to use new technologies. By the way, it's he who inspired Natalia Ivanivna, Tetyana Dmytrivna and Tetyana Oleksandrivna to create our website.
In the big hall where we met there is a big English library. There are piles of Endlish book, separated with categories and styles (methodics, books for children, etc.), many films and videos and other materials, that teachers can use at the lessons.
To tell you the truth, it was our dream, to visit an English library, and yesterday it came true!
When the lecture began, Mr. Tasker asked us to tell something about our website.
Natalia Ivanivna and Tetyana Dmytrivna showed webpages in the big screen and spoke, and we sometimes added something interesting.
We showed the main categories of this website, blogs and portfolios created by our pupils and some entries that are worth paying attention to.
It was soooo pleasant to hear that everybody liked our site!
Thomas Tasker said he was surprised that we had done so much in a so short a period of time. We all promised to impress him even more. Every of us liked meeting this man and speaking to a person whose native language is English.
Mr. Tasker is also going to visit our gymnasium when we introduce our website to everyone. We plan to do it at the beginning of February. We hope our site will become full of users and connect all the pupils of our school!
