Cooperative Poems!Written by Belogia Paraskevi
Our students have already started working on the "Cooperative Poems" which we consider as the most interesting and creative task of this project:)
So, in this part of the project students write their own free verse poems on one of the following themes: “Childhood Memories”, “Our World”, “The Environment” or on a theme of their choice.
The important thing in this activity is that the partner students will work together in groups to write the poem. Students from Romania start writing the first stanzas of the poem and send it to their partners to develop it. Students from Greece add more stanzas to their partners’ poems until the final cooperative poem is ready.
Here is a list of the Greek and Romanian students that are working together to write the Cooperative Poems! We are looking forward to reading all of them:)
What is it like to be a teenager?Written by Belogia Paraskevi
Let’s be crazy and have fun because it is our time!!!
In my opinion I don’t think there is something more difficult and complicated than being a teenager. Adolescence is by definition something hard, a period of time with lots of problems. I mean nobody teach us how to be good teenagers, how not to get into trouble, how to be friends with our parents.
Everyone wants to be independent. To have his own money, to have free time and so on …
There are schools where we learn a lot of theory, but there is no class you can attend and be given a lecture on adolescence that you could really use and benefit from. Maybe because there isn’t and won’t ever be an adult who could about himself/herself: I was a perfect teenager.

Ode to the English Language:)Written by Belogia Paraskevi
One of the students of the Romanian Young Poets Society group, Ioana Bejan, forwarded this poem to us:) It's not her own creation, but it's fun for all of us to read and comment on it! :)
Ode to the English Language
We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.
If the plural of man is always called men,
Then shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?
