ANOTHER ... SPECIAL WEEKEND!!!

Although we know there are a lot of events going on this weekend, save some time to read in English and to watch the videos. You'll love them. And the last video is a surprise ...

Let's start with the news article. You can also listen to it while you read.


Now, a curious video: Why does February only have 28 days?




We hope you are not like the fellow in the next video:

And now the exercises.
Exercises: 1, 2 and 3.


THE GREAT GATSBY

Film from 2013, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's  novel of the same name. 
New York,1929. Bond-seller Nick Carraway, in a sanitarium for depression and alcoholism, is persuaded by his doctor to write a therapeutic account of what put him there. Nick's journal describes how,seven years earlier, he had moved to a tiny house on Long Island adjoining the sumptuous mansion owned by enigmatic neighbour, the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby. After attending one of Gatsby's legendary parties Nick is asked by Gatsby to arrange a meeting with his cousin, Daisy, now married to the brutish and philandering Tom Buchanan, who was Gatsby's true love, prior to war service. As Nick complies he comes to see that Gatsby, once a poor boy, has recreated himself as a fascinating millionaire purely to win Daisy back but the events of a drunken afternoon conspire to bring about an ending which is anything but happy. 

And this is a character map.
