LABEL EUROPEEN DES LANGUES

Site de Karaokés illustrés
Créés avec Marie-Claire Renard :
"Avec tous nos élèves de la 1e maternelle à la rhéto, nous avons créé un site de "karaokés illustrés". 
Ce site contient plus d'une centaine de karaokés et permet d'apprendre (un mot un peu prétentieux dans ce cas :) les langues de manière assez ludique.
On y trouve des chansons en anglais, en français, en néerlandais et même ... en latin!"
Ce site "nous a permis de recevoir le Label Européen des Langues."
"Nous étions +/- 15 professeurs à travailler sur ce projet :
des institutrices maternelles et primaires, des professeurs du secondaire inférieur et supérieur
(enseignant les 4 langues proposées sur le site) ainsi que des professeurs d'informatique."

"There are no more than 30 vaquita – a five-foot porpoise – left in the northern Gulf of California today and they could be extinct within months, conservationists have warned. ..
The totoaba, which is itself highly endangered, is caught for its swim bladders which are smuggled to China for sale on the black market.
Undercover investigators found the swim bladders, called maws, for sale in Shantou in Guandong province, at an average price of $20,000 per kilogram. The cost has led to the maws being dubbed “aquatic cocaine”."
