Calatorii magice in lumi literare
Fundatia Calea Victoriei va invita, din 7 aprilie, la un Atelier de limba engleza pentru copii.

Ne vom imprieteni cu unii dintre eroii celebri ai literaturii
pentru copii: Tom Sawyer si Huckleberry Finn, Bilbo Hobitul, Leul
Aslan, Micul Print si Harry Potter. Vom citi fragmente din textele
originale in limba engleza si le vom discuta in cadrul atelierului.
* In ce imprejurari s-au imprietenit Tom Sawyer si Huckleberry
Finn? De ce inelul lui Bilbo era atat de pretios? Cum se ajungea in
taramul fermecat al Narniei? Ce l-a invatat vulpea pe Micul Print
despre prietenie? Cine sunt cei mai buni amici ai lui Harry Potter?
Atelierul de limba engleza ne va ajuta sa raspundem la aceste
intrebari, precum si la multe altele, descoperind felul in care
acesti eroi literari au devenit personajele favorite ale copiilor
si ale parintilor, deopotriva. Ne vom adresa, in principal,
copiilor cu un nivel intermediar sau avansat de cunoastere a limbii
engleze.

Cursul urmareste imbunatatirea aptitudinilor de comunicare in
limba engleza, dezvoltarea sensibilitaţii, imbogatirea
vocabularului, precum si incurajarea creativitatii copiilor, a
exprimarii propriilor idei si emotii intr-un mod clar, structurat
si viu.Discutiile de grup vor facilita descoperirea unor
semnificatii noi in actiunile si caracterele morale ale
personajelor selectate si mai ales vor ajuta copiii sa dobandeasca
arta expunerii si a dramatizarii unor opinii si sentimente. Prin
intalnirea directa cu aceste carti, copiii vor invata sa aprecieze
sau sa aprofundeze placerea lecturii in original a unor texte
clasice ale literaturii, dezvoltandu-si astfel inteligenţa,
imaginaţia, spiritul critic si capacitatea de concentrare. *Cu
exceptia Micului Print, al carui autor era francez (Antoine de
Saint-Exupéry), toate celelalte personaje apartin literaturii
anglo-saxone.

Magic journeys in literary worlds – English language
workshop

7 workshops

This class invites you to a journey into the worlds of famous
literary characters, such as Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, Bilbo
the Hobbit, Prince Caspian, the Little Prince, and Harry Potter. We
will read and discuss excerpts of some of the most well-known
English language books of children’s literature. * Under what
circumstances did Tom Sawyer befriend Huck Finn? Why was Bilbo’s
ring so precious? What was the path towards the magic realm of
Narnia? What did the fox teach the Little Prince about the power of
friendship? Who were Harry Potter’s best friends and how did they
help him to fight Voldemort?
The English language workshop will help us answer these questions,
and much more. We will learn why children and parents alike have
become fascinated by these characters.
The workshop targets children with an intermediate to advanced
proficiency in English, especially in reading and speaking. The
participants will improve their communication skills and enrich
their vocabulary in a creative manner, by engaging in conversations
on various themes and participating in interactive games,
role-playing debates, and storytelling. Children will be encouraged
to express their opinions about the stories and characters in a
sensitive and clear manner. They will learn how to interact with
their peers and how to react when confronted with a different point
of view.
The group discussions will be moderated in such a way that the
children will grasp novel and perhaps deeper meanings of the
stories, the plot, the characters and the relations among them.
Moreover, the role-playing exercises will help them develop skills
in the arts of storytelling and performance. Our encounter with
some of the classic children’s books of the English language will
make children discover or deepen their love for reading. Through
this process, the participants will develop their critical thinking
skills, increase their attention span, and enhance their
imagination and intelligence.
* All of the characters but the Little Prince were conceived by
Anglo-Saxon authors. The author of The Little Prince, Antoine de
Saint-Exupéry, was a French writer and journalist.
