THE QUESTIONS WE NEED TO ASK THE WORLD

Flabbergasted, I happened to read the article about the British actor currently starring as Sherlock Holmes in popular TV series, Benedict Cumberbatch, who bravely decided to hold up paper signs attacking the UK government over its abuse of civil liberties.

The next thing I knew was that my C2-level students were eager to do exactly the same in an attempt to express their thoughts on topics discussed in class or the current affairs, which would also allow them to exploit the new vocabulary in a more creative way. Therefore, we proudly present you with the photos taken today, depicting certain questions which cannot be easily dealt with. You can click on the images to view them in a larger size.

Take a look at a fun GIF image comprising all the students' photographs here.

After the photo shoot, the ECPE 'celebrities' exchanged signs with the intent of answering the questions their classmates came up with on the class blog. These are the links to those blog posts:

Why don't you take photographs of the buildings which are destroyed in the Middle East by the U.S. Army?

A world without war

How can we let people suffer from famine or die fighting in wars while we are safe and well-nourished at home?

Many people resort to animal cruelty. But are they really human?

How can we tackle the economic crisis that torments our country?

We would love to hear our readers' opinions on the following controversial topics.


Nassia: How can we let people suffer from famine or die fighting
in wars while we are safe and well- nourished at home?

Konstantinos: How can we tackle the economic crisis
which torments our country?

Andrew: Many people resort to animal cruelty.
But are they really human? 

Hercules: Do you think, if we use cloning wisely,
it can contribute to making the world a better place?

George: Why don't you take photographs of the buildings
which are destroyed in the Middle East by the U.S. Army?

Rafaela: How is the world going to be without war?
Why not live in a safe place in peace?
