Pod koniec września obchodzimy Europejski Dzień Języków.
Serdecznie zapraszam uczniów wszystkich klas
III LO do wspólnego świętowania poprzez udział w konkursie języka angielskiego. Szczegóły
I have prepared a game for you!
If you want to participate in the game, form a group consisting of at least 2 (3 or 4) members
(maximum 5 persons), from 2 (3 or 4) different English groups.
Learn to read this poem. Each member of the group must read a bit with those problematic
I take it you already know of tough and bough and cough and dough?
Some may stumble, but not you, on hiccough, thorough, slough, and through?
So now you are ready, perhaps, to learn of less familiar traps?
Beware of heard, a dreadful word, that looks like beard, but sounds like bird.
And dead, it’s said like bed, not bead; for goodness’ sake, don’t call it deed!
Watch out for meat and great and threat. (They rhyme with suite and straight and

This is the website for you to use to type in the text and get a transcription (information how
to pronounce all of the words).
This is the website for you to use to record your reading. You don’t have to memorise it, it’s just a reading task but the focus is on the correct pronunciation. All the people must read the poem.
Before you start reading, please, introduce yourselves, say which class you’re from and give the number of your group. Tell me what, you think, this competition was connected with. What kind of a celebration is held in Europe at the end of September?
Send the recording to my email address. Deadline: 17th October 2017.
I look forward to your reading!
