Táto dávno známa múdrosť platí dnes viac než inokedy. Ovládanie cudzích jazykov sa stáva v dnešnom svete nutnosťou. Existuje množstvo dôvodov, prečo sa učiť cudzie jazyky:
- chceš predsa rozumieť pesničkám, ktoré si púšťaš v rádiu
- potrebuješ rozumieť mnohým veciam na internete – literatúra, filmy, hudba...
- cestuješ s rodičmi na dovolenky a chceš sa predsa dohovoriť a nájsť si nových priateľov
- chceš si precvičovať mozog a zároveň mať lepšie výsledky v škole
- chceš mať väčšiu sebadôveru a nie sedieť zakríknutý v kúte
- chceš získať lepšiu a lepšie platenú prácu v SR
- chceš študovať a neskôr aj pracovať v zahraničí
- chceš byť pripravený na rýchlo sa meniaci svet
Tých dôvodov je ešte oveľa viac, každý z vás by vedel nejaký pridať. Preto sme sa rozhodli zriadiť na našej škole cudzojazyčnú miniknižnicu, aby ste sa mohli zdokonaľovať a tiež otestovať svoje čítanie s porozumením.
Cudzojazyčná miniknižnica sa nachádza v kabinete cudzích jazykov a radi vás v nej, milí žiaci, privítame. Keďže sme sa len rozbehli, v knižnici sa nachádza 27 kníh v angličtine od úrovne úplný začiatočník, začiatočník, mierne pokročilý čitateľ až po pokročilý čitateľ. Všetko sú to knižky (miniromány) pre deti a mládež. Postupne by sme radi túto knižnicu rozšírili o nové tituly a tiež o nové knižky aj v nemeckom jazyku.
Kto má záujem, môže si knihu požičať a po prečítaní nepoškodenú vrátiť do knižnice. Požičanie kníh je bezplatné, ak však knihu stratíš, alebo veľmi poškodíš, musíš ju uhradiť.
V ponuke sú tieto tituly (a hneď si precvič svoju angličtinu ☺):
