Who was Roald Dahl?
This morning in class I-II G we watched the movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and we discovered that this film is based on the book written by Roald Dahl. So this means Roald Dhal was a writer!
The students watched the movie in English with English subtitles and while watching they had to:
- pay attention and take notes about particular characteristics (eg. streets, houses, buildings, people's clothes);
- write down unknown words that raised their curiosity;
- write down words they recognize from previous lessons.
To know more about the writer of the book and to do the homework I gave at school click on these links:
