The role of the learner’s own language It is beyond the ability of anyone to banish totally the learner’s own language from a foreign language learning experience. Learning is, by definition, built upon previous learning, and the most significant resource that learners can bring to the learning language task is their existing linguistic knowledge (..). Kerr P. 2014 Translation and Own-language Activities (Cambridge:CUP)
Translating should be a major aim and means of language learning, and a major measure of success… This argument is a major break with tradition. (p. XV) Cook. G. 2010 Translation in Language Teaching (Oxford: OUP)
What are the five things that remind you of your childhood?
playing hide and seek Memories of my childhood picking wild strawberries chasing fireflies splashing water in pools rolling down a grassy hill
It’s funny how certain sights, smells, tastes or even sounds can bring back memories of your childhood. For example, the smell or taste of fresh chocolate always reminds me of birthday parties. My mother used to make hot chocolate a lot when I was little. And hearing Smashing Pumpkins and makes me think of high school and the friends I had there. And let’s see... When I see a puppy on the street, I think of my first dog. He was a collie named Tommy. I can clearly remember when I found him. He had been abandoned. I took him home and I took care of him. He was so cute.

White Tiger babies in Hungary - level 2
Rare white tiger babies received their first vaccination at a zoo in Hungary. The Bengal cubs were born two months ago and they are thought to be female. Their mother refused to take care of them shortly after their birth, so people must do so. The zookeepers bottle-feed them and give them small amounts of meat. Like most babies, they are becoming more and more boisterous as they grow up. A few lucky visitors saw the babies. Bengal White Tigers are extremely rare in the wild. There are fewer than 2,500 of them in the wild.

Dużą atrakcją są organizowane przez niektóre biura podróży wypady, podczas których zwiedzający mogą „przenieść się w czasie” i zobaczyć jak przed kilkudziesięciu laty wyglądały mieszkania, gdzie można było najtaniej zjeść pierogi leniwe (kultowa i do dziś czynna Restauracja „Stylowa”) i na jaką „imprezę” wieczorem wyjść ze znajomymi.
