Návštěva z Aljašky

Myslíte si, že mezikontinentální návštěvy jsou v této době nemožné? Mnozí studenti naší školy by to mohli vyvrátit, protože v minulých týdnech tuto neobyčejnou zkušenost zažili ve svých hodinách angličtiny.

Online výuka pomohla jedné dobrovolnici z Mírových sborů se vrátit po letech do České republiky alespoň virtuálně. Kara Weller pomáhala v porevolučních devadesátých letech, jako mnoho amerických dobrovolníků, se zdokonalováním angličtiny a zlepšováním životního prostředí v naší zemi.

Naši studenti tak měli jedinečnou možnost dozvědět se něco o Aljašce i mnoho ze soukromí Kary a ověřit si, že se i v primě výborně domluví s rodilou mluvčí, a to i za takto ztížených podmínek.

Our guest from Alaska

We had a special English lesson because we had a visitor from Alaska. This was a very nice lesson. We asked her questions and here are some things about her.

Her name is Kara Weller. She lives in Alaska. About half a million people live there. She is fifty-one years old. She can speak five languages: English, Czech, Russian, German and Finnish. She has got two sisters. One sister lives in Australia and the second sister lives in the USA in Colorado. She doesn't have any pets but there are many wildlife animals. She goes skiing every weekend. She works as a tour guide. She usually gets up at six o’clock in the morning. She can ride a horse. She can drive a car. It is dangerous to meet a moose.


 They have a short summer in Alaska for two or three months and the temperature can be 28 degrees. Now the weather is very cold. She was nice and happy.                          




Her name is Kara Weller. She is very interesting and she can speak 5 languages.This online lesson was absolutely incredible, because she lives in a cottage in Alaska.It’s very cold there,normally minus 7 degrees. Sometimes it is even minus fourteen degrees. It was really interesting to listen.

                 What's her usual day like,what does she do? She gets up at 6 o'clock and has breakfast.She always drinks tea for breakfast. Kara wants to be an english teacher, so she studies a lot. At noon she eats lunch.She usually eats salmon. Kara says salmon is very popular in Alaska but it’s not the national food in this country. She usually goes skiing.She likes horse riding,too. Kara hasn’t got any children or pets but she has two sisters. One of her sisters lives in Australia and the second lives in the USA.It was only an online lesson but I felt like I was in Alaska with her.                                                                                                                                         Dáša
