Cambridge - July 2013


"Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind."
Seneca


On July we went to Cambridge thanks to "Premio Iantorno Zanichelli"!



We stayed at Homerton College - Bell Teacher Campus



We had a great experience! We met a lot of teachers from all over the world!



We worked hard: courses, workshops, conferences and cultural talks...






... but we relaxed and had fun, too!



We walked around the beautiful Cambridge...




"Living in Cambridge, with nature and everything, it's so clean."

Syd Barrett



"Cambridge was a joy. Tediously. People reading books in a posh place. It was my fantasy. I loved it. I miss it still."

Zadie Smith






"I find Cambridge an asylum, in every sense of the word."

A. E. Housman


Some typical British stuff...










We'll never forget this fantastic experience...
...and now follow us on a virtual tour through Cambridge!



Did you ever have an experience like this?
Did you ever meet some foreigner people?
What was it like?




 



 "Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quiestest chambers. 
The mind can never break off from the journey."
Pat Conroy

  3. Yes, I met some foreigner people. Last summer I met an American family when I was on holiday in Umbria. While I was playing with some friends I noticed that the American girl looked at me so I asked her where she was from and her name. Her name was Maddalena, she was eight an she was fom the USA. We became friends and we talked about the things we like. But at the end of the holiday it was very sad to say goodbye!

  4. The sentence correction software are best in all because we just believe in authenticity.
