From Poland

Thank you very much for your warm words we have read and heard from our etwinning partners these days. It's very moving to hear that a lot of people from different countries understand what we have just experienced. Although the crash happened some days ago we are still grieving for our President, his wife and many representatives of Polish Parliament, Church and Army.
People are going to Warsaw to pay tribute to the President and his wife. We are still shocked that something like that could happen.
On all students and teachers' behalf, again thank you so much for your words of comfort.

May session - Italy and Lithuania

As you know, next 19th May we'll have 2 sessions instead of 1. The first country to ask the questions will be Italy and Germany cannot answer. Then Lithuania is asking the questions and everybody can answer as Italy missed this April session.

Here is the link to the conference.

Good luck to everyone. Try to be on time and ask and answer as fast as possible.

Score in April

I think that there were so difficulties with Lithuania answering the question. I've watched the videconference again and you only answered 3 questions correctly. So here is the updated score.

Our sympathy to Poland

We were very sad to know about the plane crash that killed several people from Poland, including your President.

It is with deeply consternation that we are sending you this message and with hope of a better future no matter what is happening in the present.

You'll always be in our hearts.
