Сотрудничество – Collaboration

Dear Rachel,

I want to tell you about our ideas on the project. On Monday, the 20th of October we had meeting with my colleagues and we have spoken about our future plans. It is a good idea to prepare a video-conference at the end of November or at the beginning of December. t would be very convenient for all teachers. We have good relationships with Tomsk State University, I mean the Institute of Distant Education and it could provide us good connections. Our teacher offer to make a video-conference according to the following topics: Let us introduce our self, about school traditions; about Russian and English youth, its subcultures and personal attitudeto the history of the cities Bristol and Tomsk; For teachers: to make a video-conference about teaching English as a second language. The following questions could be discussed: Information Technologies at studying foreign languages (Internet, e-mail-games at lessons, tests), Partnership between school and Tomsk polytechnic University (preparation for the exams in English, City and Guilds-programmes). A new direction in the partnership could be a project “Intercultural communication between two countries – Russia and Britain.

Best wishes,

Comets

Made of dust, ice, carbon dioxide, ammonia and methane, comets resemble dirty snowballs. You may remember them as blurry smudges in the sky. Comets orbit the Sun, but most are believed to inhabit in an area known as the Oort Cloud, far beyond the orbit of Pluto. Occasionally a comet streaks through the inner solar system; some do so regularly, some only once every few centuries. Heads and tails As a comet nears the Sun, its icy core boils off, forming a cloud of dust and gas called a head, or coma. Comets become visible when sunlight reflects off this cloud. As the comet gets closer to the sun, more gas is produced. The gas and dust is pushed away by charged particles known as the solar wind, forming two tails. Dust particles form a yellowish tail, and ionized gas makes a bluish ion tail. A comet’s tails, like these on comet Halley, always points away from the Sun. Meteor showers When Earth crosses the path of a comet, even if the comet hasn’t been around for a few years, leftover dust and ice can create increased numbers of meteors.
