    Vocabulary: back to School...


    This is part of the cycle of life: "April showers bring May flowers..." but you also know: "After the summer break, no one's ready to go back to school!" 😥   Going back to school may be expected, hoped for, but also hated, dreaded, or downright loathed... We dare say that resuming school is the cause of many terrible nightmares, of the scare of the unknown (and of strangers), of anxiety (whether it's put into words, or not...)

    In order to fear the moment as little as possible, you have to get ready for it, going "shopping" as necessary, of course, but also preparing psychologically.

    That moment of the year is often an opportunity to turn a new page, to adopt new rhythms, and to face new responsibilities too... (, which may be frightening!  That's normal! ) Therefore, at that period, you must  THINK  POSITIVE..., strive to find the tiny element which will help you bridge the dreaded gap... Let's make sure we consider that moment as a "promotion" towards something better, accomplishing new objectives (even if they were set for us - for our good...  ) but which are going to give us more self-sufficiency, make us grow, whatever our age is...



               A wonderful apple to bite into...                              


    The school Year is divided into different moments, giving it a new rhythm...

     A term= 3 months A semester= 6 months
     To have Wednesdays off                                       A school visit                       
     The timetable  Back-to-school offers                                   
     The syllabus  A break/ a recess 


    1) BACK TO SCHOOL: Why do we have to go back to school?

     The headmaster

    but mainly, you'll meet a lot of friends, of "pals", that you'll keep for a very very long time...



    Group work                                              Fun during breaks


    2) INSIDE THE SCHOOL: Visit the place, try to get to know it and not to lose yourself too often... Do not be late for lessons... 

     A classroom                                 A form 
     A gym                                                  The playground

           Pairs of scissors                         Pens, pencils, highlighters           



        A pencil sharpener

    A lot of happiness, I hope, felt while getting ready for this dreaded "passage", that moment of initiation for each and everyone of us... In my opinion, you're ready..., which may not be the case for everyone...  "You're ready, little Lucy, arent' you?" 

    All of you, GO FOR IT - with THE FORCE - and ENJOY!
