How we went. The tasks were accepted very positively. It seemed to be interesting. We all watched the video Romanian Traditional Fair. This video is not very good for learning because it is not in English and its without subtitles. So we did some creative work to make all this interesting for students. After watching video, we understand that this video are about Romanian market place. So we create task about market and Latvian Central market. Before writing and answering tasks the students were eagerly participating in the discussion and comparing their opinions about our market. Each student chose the task he wanted to do . They did the survey which was made to practice and improve the question making skills in English. As you see it is still a really difficult task. Also articles have to be revised and practiced again and again. The students were developing their acting and communication skills in English by carrying out various role plays. The attitude and success was different for the students, those who are shy and unconfident about their language skills were reluctant to play out the dialogues in audience. Others, on the contrary, liked it and did it quite enthusiastically. It was quite an interesting task to find out the information about the history of Riga Central Market because it is one of the landmarks of Riga. Almost all the participants had their own experience and opinion about it .The teachers task was to control the discussion and make to precede it in English , not to switch to their native language Latvian.
