DURING THE CLASS
DIFFICULTIES I HAVE MET:
- COLLECTIVE WORK THAT IS TO SAY ABSENTEEISM
- TOO STRAIGHT WITH MYSELF; I HAVE STILL SEARCHED FOR COMPLEX VOCABULARY
IMPROVEMENTS I HAVE GAINED:
- PERSONALLY: ACQUAINTANCES I HAVE OBTAINED ABOUT INTERNET -SUCH AS WEB 2.0 TOOLS SUCH AS FACEBOOK, FLICKR (THE SOFTWARE) AND SO FORTH...
TO MAINTAIN MY ORAL ENGLISH AMONG MY CLASSMATES.
TO CREATE MY OWN BLOG AND INTERACT WITH THE OTHERS.
TO BE MORE COMFORTABLE WITH THE USE OF INTERNET TOOLS. INDEED I HAVE NEVER ACCEPTED MY ENTRANCE TO GET INVOLVED INTO NEW MEDIAS LIKE A LAPTOP.
- COLLECTIVELY: THANKS TO THE OTHER MEMBERS OF MY GROUP I HAVE ACQUIRED SIMPLE VOCABULARY TO TELL A STORY FOR CHILDREN.

Have nice vacation for Easter.
Do you like milk chocolate or plain chocolate?
When I was a kid I used to search for chocolate eggs in the back-yard of grandparents' cottage. It was a tricky game and still it is. I realize it doesn't really exist in Grenoble; It sounds to be an unfashionable tendency, searching for eggs into the garden to make children having fun.
Any way it was a roar of laugh.
Memories are still vivid.

THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
How to grow Pumpkins, part one
The third podcast is about Pumpkin Production from Vegetable Crops Team, Ohio.
The Ohio State University is involved in it.
The recommandation has good crops of pumpkins is drain soil.
Scientific research had been made about virus, powdery mildew resistance, for cropping different kind varieties of pumpkins. After that the team has to use such organic sources and fertilizers pumpkins provided.
They do not have crops without any pests such as weeds, insects and important diseases. Also they have to use chemicals to exterminate rootworms; the fungicides are effecient too.
Most of pumpkin crops are destined to celebrate festivities such as Christmas and Halloween.
On my campus in SAINT MARTIN D'HERES it exists some organizations to promote gardening. One of them has a place to live in front of Droit-Lettres Libraby. They are cultivating different vegetable sets like leeks, squash, lettuce and so on. Many students are involving in it. They are promoting gardening tools.
One of the main damages is weeds in that the garden is situated on a plot of land where weeds are growing quickly. They have to irrigate it with pipes and to exterminate pests with chemicals like fungicides.
I would like to support it but I have no free-time; however I think it is a nice way to get in touch with the other students, especially you feel alone.
Be satisfied with it.
Comment on it.
ARE YOU SUPPORTING A STUDENT ORGANIZATION NOW?
