This term we started with the literary talks in English class. Every class has to to read a classic novel. In 1st of ESO, the students have to read “The Canterbury Tales”, in 2nd “The picture of Dorian Gray”, in 3rd “Sweeney Todd” and in 4th “1984”.

One hour per week, we sit down in a circle and talk about the chapter we were assigned to read, Each student also has to choose a fragment and explain why (s)he chose that particular paragraph. In addition, there is a secretary who writes down all the topics that are mentioned in the chapter and afterwards we discuss these as a group.

We thought it would be rather difficult and challenging, but instead it is interesting and fun. A good way to practice the English language and to know more about its literature!
