The Royal Wedding

I am sure you have watched the Royal Wedding. There are some moments you might have missed, though. Watch the following clip:

Your turn:
1. Compare William and Kate's wedding to Charles and Diana's / a Romanian wedding in terms of customs, etiquette, garments. of course except for the fact that this was a royal wedding. What did you find special/interesting about it? What do you think is specific for a Romanian wedding? Have you ever been at a wedding in another country or for another nationality? How was it different?

Sunny Brighton - WebQuest

My latest trip was in Brighton, UK.

The first thing I learned about this town was from the coach driver at the airport, who, after controlling my ticket said: 'Travelling to sunny Brighton'. And it was indeed sunny! So much unlike Britain and even so much unlike the British seaside - as they jokingly admit of having summer in one afternoon.

In order to find more about Brighton and the Sussex area, I'd like you to search the web and find how is this seaside town different from a Romanian seaside town.

Examine pictures, look at the buildings, at the people. How are they similar/different?

What are its highlights? Is there any aspect that you found particularly interesting about it? Waiting to see your impressions of your virtual trip to Brighton!
