Minimum Competence in Scientific English – but mainly "more"
Hello EVO people,
I have been chasing the mountains all week to get some photos to show you how beautiful “my” mountains are! There are two rivers flowing into Grenoble, and one flowing out, which makes three sets of mountains which are very different from each other: the Belledonne, Vercors and Chartreuse. This means that you never get lost in town, because you just have to look up and you know which direction you’re going in. Why did I have to chase them – because the clouds gather on the peaks in no time at all, so dirving home from work, I would think, “Great – a clear day to take a photo”, and arriving home find that little wisps of clouds had spoilt the photo 🙂
But EVO is drawing to a close, and by becoming an Edublogs supporter I discovered that you can record a comment directly, so – although I haven’t had time to make a blog worthy of the name, if you would be so kind as to leave a message saying where you are and what students you teach, or what you think are the main advantages of these web tools for learning English, or any other advice you could give my students- who are all Physics and Electrical Engineering undergraduates – I would be absolutely thrilled !
so here, for you is:the Vercors, seen from my department at the university
Belledonne seen from my garden (and across the field of my neigbour, (who is a farmer):
And you can just see a glimpse of the Chartreuse behind the little hill (which is a moraine)”
I have already met one EVO friend (from Canada) here in Grenoble … so please note the address- you’d be most welcome.
