ENGLISH AT THE 2nd MODEL EXPERIMENTAL SCHOOL OF ATHENS In our school we learn English 3 times a week. We sometimes watch movies to get more fluent, do some listening to get ready for our exams. We cooperate with other classes to play games, have fun or do some team work and more fun things like these. But we also take the language seriously by doing exercises and mini-tests all the time, and we are getting better and better. Anna, Christianna, Nikoletta, Valentina
Tasos Rossiadis Hello! My name is Tasos and I’m 13 years old. I’m from Greece,a country well known for its tourism, so English is a language needed here. However, that is not the reason I have been learning English for. I have been learning English because since it is an international language, it comes in handy situations like daily use of the Internet or in the future, when I’m looking for a job. I have also familiarized myself with the language since I play a lot of videogames. Thus, an English degree is indeed extremely useful.
