Charming small town in Alsace

THE FOLLOWING PIECE IS BY ONE OF OUR MOST LOYAL AND FAVORITE STUDENTS, RAFFAELLA. AFTER LEARNING ABOUT WRITING BLOG POSTS IN ONE OF OUR GROUP LESSONS, HER HOMEWORK WAS THE FOLLOWING:

Create the blog post you planned with your partner during the lesson!

If you love villages with a lot of atmosphere, the calm of the countryside, good food and wine, then Alsace is the right destination for a trip!

This region is known for flammekueches (a kind of pizza with sour cream and bacon), choucroute (different kind of pork meat with sauerkraut), a stew called backeoffe, white aromatic wines and the gorgeous Christmas markets.

Flammekueche or Tarte Flambée

But it’s also well known for the beautiful small towns with flowered balconies and the peculiar timber framed houses.

In a week you can easily travel around and stop to visit the countless villages that seem right out of a fairytale.

Alsace Travel

Actually Alsace is also a good destination also for a long weekend, maybe just before Christmas, to really enjoy the charming atmosphere and to wander around the joyful markets.

Not to be missed in the visit of Strasbourg, with its gothic cathedral and the characteristic Petit France neighborhood, the romantic Colmar with its Petite Venise and the Unterlinden Museum, the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle, Riquewihr, which is one of the most beautiful villages along the wine route and Mulhouse, known as the European technical museum capital.

If you have enough time I also suggest visiting also the Sainte Odile’s mount monastery, from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the region.

 

THANK YOU RAFFAELLA FOR LETTING US DISCOVER THE BEAUTIES OF ALSACE!

English Homework: Cultural Tips for Visiting Milan

The following piece is by one of our talented students, Sofia, who is also a photographer by profession. After learning about British Etiquette in one of our English lessons, her homework was the following:

Write an email to a friend who is coming to Milan. She wants to do all the touristy activities. Give her some advice on how to act around the locals, like your “rules of etiquette”!

Hi Giulia!

I’m so glad to hear that you’ve decided to visit Milan. I’m sure you know where to go and what to see.
Milano Duomo, Corsi Inglese Milano
Remember! You can’t miss the Duomo and the Castello Sforzesco, but let me give you some advice on how to act around the locals!
Italians are really in love with food, and there are some rules of etiquette you need to respect! First of all, please, don’t have a cappuccino while eating lunch or dinner, it’s something really really inappropriate.
Cappuccino, pranzo, inglese, Milano
No cappuccino with food!
Another thing you must not do is putting parmesan on fish, I can’t tell you why. We are used to drinking wine while heaving lunch or dinner, it’s for pleasure not a way to get drunk, so don’t overdo it!

Easy on the wine.
Milanese people are really in love with fashion, so please, when you visit the city try to dress properly. Do not dress like you have to do a mountain expedition or a walk at the beach. Please remember that if you want to visit a church you need to have your shoulders and legs covered.
That’s all! And if someone calls you “Bella” in the street, it’s just a compliment!

E voi invece?
