Interview : students in the USA

Holland Middle School,
Pennsylvania, USA

Formal Interview Practice: Our students practiced formal interviewing techniques today by using Skype to interview Mrs. Dondi who teaches English at Boglári Altalanos Iskola, a Primary School in Balatonboglár, Hungary.  She told us that it was warm there this morning but raining now.  We told her that in our classroom it was about 21° Celcius.   She teaches students from ages 9 to 15 years old.  Their school day starts at 8:00 in the morning and usually ends by 2:00 but some students stay later for certain classes.  We found out that her students do not wear uniforms and that about half of her students go home for lunch every day.  We were surprised to lean that their school year ends in about one week.  Ms. Dondi was surprised to learn that we had such a long Summer break

Comparing school life in Italy and Hungary

We compared our school life.
What is the difference? They start school at 8 but finish at 4 pm. We finish at 1.30 pm. They have less but longer lessons than we. And they wear uniform, we don't. There is a 3 month long summer holiday...we only have 2, 5 month long.

We showed our school yard in the webcam on both sides
