• Summer is here, or so they say...

    Feeling thirsty, Hyacinthe wrote an article about COCA COLA.

    COCA COLA  is a soft drink, this original drink is a symbol of  Americanism.

    Its name originates from its first recipe:

    Extracts of coca leaves (Coke In American) and the use of kola nut.

    Today its main competitors on the world market are soft drinks drinks called "Cola" made by  multinationals, like , to a Lesser extent                and

    Every day, 1,5 billion bottles are sold in the world , for a 29 billion dollar turnover in 2007 .

    (Well maybe this year they will not make as much money !)

  •  The Dresden Dolls are an American music group from Boston, Massachusetts.The group consists of Amanda Palmer (vocals, piano,harmonica, ukulele) and Brian Viglione (drums, percussion, guitar, bass guitar, vocals).Formed in 2000, their style is dark cabaret, piano rock and alternative rock. The musical compositions of this group are very interesting. They have an impressive way of singing especially because they are only two on stage.  

     

    The music style is special, their costumes are black and white.

     

    We like this group very much because they have an outstanding way of singing. They don’t copy any other group. They are extraordinary. You don’t have to like them even if they deserve to be listened to.

     

    Here is the link where you can listen to them:

    There were numerous garden and street parties. Some even prepared that day long in advance.

     

    But not everybody was happy with this event:

  • Since their latest test the pupils from the 4 groups in "2nde Groupes de Compétences" must have been wondering what an "A to Z" was.

    Here is the answer: http://www.az.co.uk/

    A to Z is the British specialist in maps of all kinds. If you travel to Great Britain and don't want to get lost don't forget to use them. You don't have to buy their books, they now have a service on line !
