Indias animal world

Filed under: Other things — sarahkoch @ 2:00 pm

Because of its landscape varietis we find a very species-rich animal world in India.

There are about 350 kinds of mammal, 1200 kinds of bird, 400 kinds of reptile and 200 kinds of amphibian domestic.

The two most famous mammals are the big Indian elephant

 

and the beautiful tiger, which was threatened of becoming extinct for a long time. But now the existence can recover again, since protection devices were built.

Indias bird world with over 1200 native kinds – that is more than in Euroope – is extremely various. The national bird is the peacock.

 

Monkeys are also very important to India. Rhesus monkes are considered as holy to the Hindus, they may not be troubled and therefore they also live in cities.                                              

 

NOW TO THE GEOGRAPHY April 20, 2008

Filed under: Other things — sarahkoch @ 5:37 pm

India is with a surface of 3.287.590 square kilometers the seventh-largest state of the earth.

The highest point is the mountain Kangchendzönga, with 8.598 meters height, which rises in direct border to Nepal. The highest mountain which is completely on Indian area is the nanda Devi, with 7.822 meters.

 

 

India’s longest and certainly most important river is the Ganges or also called Ganga. The Brahmaputra, which flows through the country in the northeast, unites with the Ganges and forms before the aperture into the gulf of Bengalen an enourmous delta.

English in Action März 10, 2008

Filed under: Other things — sarahkoch @ 7:18 pm

Last week we had English in Action. Two native speakers from Great Britain came to us. Our class was split up into two groups of about 15. Every lesson the teacher changed. In the first lesson we had Nick, next lesson Moira and so on. Both were really nice, they always had fun with us. We got a book, with which we worked the first three lessons. In the fourth lesson we made quizzes or played games. In the fifth lesson we worked on our projects, and in sixth lesson we worked on our show for Friday.

I made my project with Doris and Karina. We’ve chosen to make a biography about ourselves.  We looked for some photos when we were babies, when we went to kindergarten and when we went to primary school. We took the best ones and gave it into a power-point-presentation. On Friday, when we saw all the parents who would watch our presentation we got very nervous. We didn’t want to make the presentation, because it was so embarrassing, but we made it, and it wasn’t as horrible as we thought.

Altogether I really enjoyed English in Action. We had very much fun. I don’t know if my English has improved so much, but we learned some slang words and that was really interesting.
