My three places to visit: Packwood House

Image
Packwood House is a Tudor manor house near Lapworth, Warwickshire. It was largely rebuilt between 1925 and 1945 in the style of an authentic Tudor Manor. Owned by the National Trust since 1941, the house is a Grade I listed building. It has a wealth of tapestries and fine furniture. It is also popular for its yew gardens.

The house was built for John Fetherston between 1556 and 1560. The famous Yew Garden contains over 100 trees. One of the beds in the house was used by Queen Margaret of Anjou the night before her terrible defeat at the Battle of Tewkesbury.

PRIMERA SEMANA EN VALENCIA par Camélia

Image
Me llamo Camélia tiene 16 años y soy estudiante en Merchandising Visual en Montreuil. Actualmente soy cursillista en un Showroom que se llama Moma en Valencia.






Lunes 11/06
Primer día en Valencia. Encuentro con Sara y María los responsables del Showroom. He visitado la ciudad y la playa. Me sentía muy cansada.


Martes 12
Primer día de trabajo. Sara y María me acogieron muy bien en la empresa. Por la mañana María me presentó todas las colecciones del Showroom después me pidió crear algunos looks con ropa de ciertas colecciones para Instagram. Y por fin he ordenado cajas.
Quería decir que martes por la mañana me levanté con estrés bastante normal para una estudiante que hace su primer día de trabajo en otro país. Pero, el martes por la tarde me sentía muy mal moralmente y muy cansada. María me preguntó si quería irme a casa para descansar para que el miércoles vuelva en forma.

Miércoles 13
Por la mañana todavía me sentí mal. Acababa de pasar una noche horrible; mi estrés y mi angustia hab…

Mi primera semana en Valencia

La première semaine c’est très bien déroulé. Je n’ai pas mis beaucoup de temps à m’habituer. J’arrive facilement à me repérer. Le stage s’est très bien passer. Quand je n’ai plus de tâche, ma tutrice m’aide à améliorer mon Espagnol tout en restant dans le domaine de la gestion et de l'administration.

Entiendo español un poco mejor. Aprendí nuevas palabras. Todo va muy bien. He aprendido a trabajar en español con María y Sara. En Moma showroom, mi empresa de acogida, tengo que completar una base de datos. Me gusta Valencia porque es una ciudad tranquila y coloreada. Los Valencianos son muy simpáticos. Siempre hace buen tiempo. El domingo, fui à la isla de Tabarca. Es una isla pequeña y magnífica.

Cinq siècles de relations franco-polonaises

Image
Il y a 2 semaines, nos élèves du lycée Alfred Costes revenaient de 4 semaines de stage en Pologne. Afin de renforcer une meilleure connaissance des liens entre nos deux pays, le site de la BNF nous propose de poursuivre ce voyage au travers d'un site événement sur l'héritage France - Pologne : 
heritage.bnf.fr/france-pologne

"Il y a cent ans, la Pologne retrouvait son indépendance après cent-vingt-trois ans d’effacement des cartes de l’Europe. L’ouverture de la bibliothèque numérique France-Pologne en cette année anniversaire s’inscrit dans la commémoration de cet événement."
