Bleak House: an audio book!

Students of class II H of the school "L. Da Vinci - O. Nucula" in Terni created an audio book of the Novel "Bleak House" written by Charlse Dickens.
This activity was part of the "BFG: Books for Friends are Great" etwinning project.
The pupils chose to read this novel and after having read it in small groups they created storyboards using the app  http://www.storyboardthat.com/ to let their French friends read and enjoy the book.
French pupils did the same with another book "Deadly Jobs".
After the storyboards Italian students also created an audio book using spark.adobe.com.
The book is not perfect, there are both spelling and pronunciation mistakes, but the students had the chance of reading, creating storyboards and also practicing their reading skills.

Here is the result.
