Action" at Neue Mittelschule in St. Anna am Aigen
In our second school week we took part in "English in Action"
which was really great.
During this week we
spoke English all the time. We had two teachers called Matthew and
Kate. I liked them very much.
During the lessons we organised a project
in two teams. Our project was about customers who didn’t like the
food in a restaurant. It was really fun to film it. But probably the
sound wasn’t so good.
In another lesson we prepared for the
show. For that we all worked together. We wrote the scripts for our
scenes in groups, but in the end we didn’t need it, because we
We showed the project to the other class
and the show to the other students of the school.
I was very sad that it passed so quickly.
I would like to have one again.

Last week I took part in the
„English in Action“ week. It was great fun and we learned many new
Our teachers´ names were Kate and Matt. They were very nice. Every
day in the last two lessons we worked on our projects and our show.
David and I made an advert about a shoe.
The show was called „Talents of St. Anna“
and was a talent show with some good but also some bad acts.
The English-in-Action week was great fun
and I think that everybody in my class agrees with that.
I took part in the "English
in Action" week. It was a special week.
In the first lessons we worked in our
books and played games. We only spoke English. In the fifth lesson
we worked on our projects. We made a video which was called ''One
day in a shop“. In the sixth lesson we prepared a play called
''Cinderella in New York“. On Friday we showed our film to the 4a
class and presented our play. Our English teacher Matthew understood
some German words but Kate couldn't, because it was her first time
I think the English week was fun because
English is my favourite language. I'm a little bit sad because the
English week is over but I wish that we will speak a lot of English

The “English in Action” week was great fun. We learned a lot of new
vocabulary and improved the grammar.
The teachers, named Matt and Kate were really nice. We had to
speak a lot of English during the lessons and we also tried to speak
English in the breaks. All groups had to prepare a show and a
presentation. Our show was about talents of St. Anna who danced,
sang and did strange and funny things in front of a jury. Natalie,
Laura and I made an interview about “Modern Talking“, which was
Sometimes it was pretty hard to understand our teachers but they
tried to explain the words and most of the time we knew what they
meant. We were very lucky to have those teachers, because they were
so friendly and humorous. I think we will miss them.
My English got really better in this week and I hope it will go on
like that in the future.
We had an
"English in Action" week with teachers from England. We all had much fun.
First we made
nameplates with our status on them. Then we played a game called
“What is it?“. It was a funny game. The last two lessons every day
were special lessons, because there we made our videos and prepared
for the show.
On Wednesday we created adverts. It was a great
lesson. I invented a new car with a special trailer which can go all
over the world. On Friday we presented a video I had made with my
friends. We finally presented our show to the teachers and our
I think the English week was great because we had the
best teachers and we learned a lot from them.
Before the “English in Action” week
we were very nervous and we wanted to know who our teachers would be
this year because we already had an “English in Action” week two
At first, we met Kate, a young nice
woman. We got a lot of information about her. In the next lesson,
Matt came to us. He was a cool, young man. We also talked a lot with
him. These were our teachers for that week. Nobody knew at that
moment that we would miss them so much!
Every day we had some lessons to prepare
our project and our show. We did the project with Kate and the show
with Matt. We played a lot with Matt and we had to talk English very
often, but it was great.
For our project, we formed five groups
and every group could decide between making a quiz, a little news
show or an advert. Our show was a talent show. It was a funny show
with two dance groups, a really bad acrobatic-group, a strange man
and a creepy very good singer. There was no blood or fight.
On Wednesday and Thursday, we had two
lessons for our project and for our show.Then on Friday, we knew it
was show-time. Every class presented their show.
It was the best
school week I’ve ever had!
