Misunderstanding

Posted by: Natalia Tzitzi

Hi!

I'm Natalia Tzitzi and I work as an English teacher at 10th Helioupolis Primary School, Athens, Greece. I was puzzled to see that my school is a member of the project "How did I get my name" because I have never accepted an invitation to this project which, by the way, sounds really interesting from what I have seen. Unfortunately my school is already involved in a Comenius project and we lack the time and the human resources to take on another project. So I would appreciate it if the administrators deleted my school from the member list of your project.

We may have...

              Here is an extract of the poem " Rapsodii de toamna".It describes autumn and its yellow leaves that begin to fall.

                       "S-a ivit pe culme Toamna,

                        Zina melopeelor,

                        Spaima florilor si Doamna

                         Curcubitaceelor.

 

                         Apoi pleaca mai departe

                         Pustiind cararile,

                         Cu alai de frunze moarte

                         Sa colinde zarile."

Picture

Minu vanaisa oli meremees. Kui minu vanaisa sai teada, et tal sündis poeg, siis ta kirjutas sinna oma andmed ja selle, et tal sündis poeg. Ta pani kirja pudelisse ja viskas merre. Paari aasta pärast saadeti talle kiri: Palju õnne poja sünni eest! Kirja saatja nimi oli Monica. Siis sündisin mina ja isa ütles: Selle tüdruku nimeks saab Moonika! Nii saingi ma endale nime.
