Useful sites for Teachers of English

Most of us try to keep up to date with the new trends in ELT and refresh our teaching methods to make the english lesson more appealing to our pupils. Here, there is a list of teaching resourses which I have found particularly helpful and innovative

This site, developed by the award-winning teaching fellow Russell Stannard (British council ELTons Award for Innovation 2010), provides free on-line training videos for English language teachers interested in technology.

The Rosetta Stone

"The Rosetta Stone" is the new etwinning partnership of Pentapolis Senior Highschool undertaken in collaboration with King Edward VI College (UK).

It has been designed by the BBC Worldclass to work in conjuction with the History of the World in 100 Objects Series of the British Museum.
Students will learn more about what is involved in becoming active citizens, they will discuss the topic of the repatriation of the Rosetta Stone and other famous exhibits of the British Museum (such as the Parthenon Sculptures) as well as reflecting on what objects best represent their own culture. Furthermore their language and ICT skills will be enhanced and a team spirit will hopefully be created and developed.

The final story, produced by the students, can be found in the following address:

The British Museum



This is a presentation created by the pupils while exploring the topic "the History of the World in 100 objects" from the British Museum and other museums as well.

Repatriation of the Parthenon Sculptures




"For almost 30 years, the Government of Greece has been lobbying the British Government for the return of the collection, and the opening of the Acropolis Museum, meant to be the ark of Greek culture, has proven to be a flashpoint for the long-running discussion. The issues around the restitution of artwork to the countries of their origin remains a contentious and hotly-contested one, both for the current owners and the nations of their creation."

The Parthenon History


This is a video financed by the Greek Ministry of Culture to show the history of Parthenon throughout the centuries. Pay particular attention to the part referring to the 'extraction' of the sculptures by Lord Elgin.

Romeo & Juliet, your impressions!

A few days ago, following our classroom work on great British authors and their masterpieces, we attended the theatre play "Romeo and Juliet" in the new theatre building in Serres, 'Asteria'.

After we saw the play, some of the pupils shared with us their impressions and thoughts..Here they are..

“In this play, the main characters are Romeo and Juliet. The facts were happening in Italy, Verona. I didn’t like the play, because it was boring and not interesting. I liked the play, because it was romantic and it was based on love. It needed more activity!”

Soula O.

“I like Romeo and Juliet play, because is very romantic history. I like the kisses and when they died.”

Apostolis T.

“On Friday 18th of February I and my class mates went with our teacher to the theater. We saw “ROMEO AND JULIET” The actors were good but I’didn’t like their costumes. I like the dialogues and the light.
After the show we went to eat and then we returned to school
I really had a good time.”

Fotis G.

Romeo and Joliet is my favorite play. Romeo is good actor and I like film. Juliet’s father is bad and didn’ t let them get married.

Tasos T.

“Last Friday, I and my school class went in the theatre and we saw the play “Romeo and Juliet”.
I liked most Juliet’s father and Romeo. Because Juliet’s father was very evil and he shouted all the time to Juliet. Romeo was very funny and a very good actor.”

Aggelos L.

I liked the scene where Juliet and Romeo died because it is very moving .
Panagiota R.
