This is the thread where you can give your views on the presentation and the subject chosen by Paul and Benjamin.

Laughing Embarassed

Thanks Mat.

I'd like to say that I was waiting to see who stepped up but the truth is I've been correcting papers and other tests all day every day since Friday - apart from a day in a dark room thanks to a Migraine - and it slipped my mind.

You've saved me.

Haha you're welcome ! Very Happy

Concerning the presentation, it was clear and well executed. Using Socrative to involve the class was a brilliant idea !
For me, making an Union with healthy countries is always a plus because those countries will always give an added value. This is more doubtfull when it comes to troubled nations. This is why I'm more septical about making Europe bigger.
In my opinion, Europe should take care of its own countries before adding other nations, even if that means losing members.

Hi ! The presentation was interesting and good, i agree with Mat that socrative is a brilliant idea. About UE, i think its a brilliant idea, the fact that there is the same currency, that we can travel to the other european countries. But there is also problems, the eu economy is being bad for years, the greek crisis was managed very badely. There is still work to do.

Hi boys and girls !

First I would like to thanks the boys because when i knew that their subject was the EU, I was like "F*******ck, boring !". But at least it wasn't, good point for Paul and BenBenBen Wink
The use of socrative is interesting, it's allow you to participate with the two presenter, we should have done one but we didn't think to this the first week.

I would like to comeback on a question that was discussed wednesday, the multi-languages in Europe and why don't have a common language, French by example (English is only a 5% native language in the world by the way).
I hope that we'lle never have this kind of common language because we don't live in a country but a language. Habits and customs of every country in Europe is very precious to be what we are.
If we start to try to have one language, one currency, one hymn, the principle of Eu will fall.

In varietate concordia,

Good night and see you tomorrow Cool

France is in this zone, it is a subject which concerns us directly. Their presentation was synthetic, they knew well how to accompany it with 2 quizzes Socrative, this course was able to enrich our culture on the subject.

I love the idea of Scorative but I feel questions are needed DURING the presentation ABOUT the presentation so that students can show they are following and understanding.

The idea of using it interests me greatly but what about those students who don't have a "smartphone" or it isn't charged. Do you think that would make the class unfair?

Socrative can also be used with a computer, all you need is an internet conection and a browser. And If John Cox has a smartphone, everybody has Laughing

I'm a little late (One week...) I'm sorry !
Yes the subject was interesting. At the beginning, I thought that this subject would be a little annoying... because we know the European Union and we have learnt a lot about this subject at school. But guys are done a good presentation with games and quizz so it wasn't annoying, and they have connected their presentation with the precedent presentation which are about Brexit. So it was complementary!
Thanks Paul and Ben

Hi !
Like Clarisse i'm also a bit late about the subject. I think the question of the integration of other countries in European Union reveals what the real problem of European Union is. Because there is a problem, if countries want to leave the Union it means that not everything's ok. We got the exemple with Brexit.
With the same law, the same curency, the same politics we want to creat a large country to face the 3 big (China, Russia and USA). But we also want to keep our cultures and morals. And it seems impossible to reach both of them. Take the problem of the same currency. We settled down this (but few countries don't choose to make it... Once again England is concerned about it Cool ). But, before, we didn't creat a harmony in standard of living. And by the way some European countries suffer from this. Without speaking about currency exchange rate which is a tool than gouvernements can't use now individualy.
To conclude my purpose it's a great idea, trying to be bigger to stay in the race. But it's maybe to hard to find a way to do it well.

For me, too, it is with delay that I react on this presentation.
The presentation was very interesting and very well conducted by Paul and Benjamin.
I learned new things about the European Union, because even if one studies it in school one always forgets the details.
They knew to captivate us thanks with the different quizzes, good presentation!

Personally I found this topic interesting and complementary to that of brexit. Nice presentation, good idea about interactive games.

It was a good presentation, but like Ibra, it was a little bit difficult for me.

However,
"Like Clarisse and Jordy i'm also a bit late about the subject. I think the question of the integration of other countries in European Union reveals what the real problem of European Union is. Because there is a problem, if countries want to leave the Union it means that not everything's ok. We got the exemple with Brexit."

I think you didn't gave me a real answers about rules to complys by countries wishing to join the eurozone.
I know some countries which are poor than greece, but i don't know that they could join the eurozone!

Hello everybody,

very good your subject, but you have a lot of information during your presentations. Hnce, it was sometime difficult to understand.
Despite that, it was fine, because, the informations were the complement of the previous subject on the Brexit.

The European Union is a beautiful construction but by opening up the union to many countries, it becomes difficult to find a politic that is suitable for everyone. The risk is that the effort is supported only by the great nations like Germany and France, we see this during the Greek debt crisis. EU allows small countries to grow economically, but do the inhabitants really feel this, I am not sure.

Concerning the presentation, nothing to add, beautiful speech, good dynamics, good animations.. This duo is worthy of the greatest !! ( Or not )

I liked the presentation and like the others said the use of socrative was on point. I used to believe that Europe could live up to its potential of actually bringing people together under a same banner. I also understand now that it was actually a bigger deal than I tought with a great degree of difficulty vis a vis politics, economics or even social. Great subject and great presentation

I have not attended the course that day but what I will have heard the game on socrative has been very interesting so I congratulate you guys
Since its creation until today I think that the question of the union on its functioning and others should no longer arise but as men are as they are there will always be problems. Personally, I think that there is a risk that the European eu is bursting simply because there is a great void of solidarity even a union is like marriage for the better and for the worst
