  • On the twenty-first of September, at Zolotonosha Sanatorna Boarding School in the tenth form two English lessons were held on the topic «Relations between people. Friendship». The first lesson began with watching video on friendship - «The dove and the ant story». Then we discussed the morality of this video. Each student expressed his opinion on what he saw. After discussing the video, we watched a presentation on «Friendship». While watching different slides of the presentation, we were discussing the following issues: 1) What is friendship: Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people. There are many forms of friendship. These forms include affection, sympathy, empathy, honesty, altruism, mutual understanding, and compassion, enjoyment of each other's company, trust, and the ability to be oneself, express one's feelings, and make mistakes without fear of judgment from the friend. 2) What does it give:  Happiness  You can share your emotions  New opportunities  Support all the time  You can be yourself 3) What kind of friendship exist:  Gender friendship  Friendship between boys and girls  Friendship between different groups 4) How to start a friendship:  Always be yourself!  Don't let your friends down waiting a perfection  Be compromised!  Let your friend be alone sometimes! Give him/her some space!  Choose your friends carefully!  Let people know that you are interested in them. 5) Secrets of friendship:  Visit different places! Usually friends have the common interests!  Be a friend to yourself- don't put yourself down.  Do the first step by yourself! Don't hesitate! Having watched the presentation and discussed it, we were divided into 2 groups according to the thematic cards. We were offered to create the best friendship recipe as it was showed in the slide. It was a great competition between two teams. All students actively worked on the task. Then we wondered whether we are good friends indeed. The teacher asked us to do the quiz taken from the British Council. It is called a «Friendship Quiz». Doing this test, we were working in pairs and in groups, discussing the statements of the quiz and doing interesting tasks. As it turned out, all 10 form pupils are great friends (based on the test). Finally, we performed a project which is called «Friendship», which brought us a great pleasure, because we all worked hard. We were creating collages, cutting, painting and discussing the topic. The results of our project can be found in the photographs. Overall, we liked those lessons in English. We had wonderful and fun time, got new knowledge, and the most importantly that we have become more friendly.
