European Union

‘A day will come when all the nations of this continent, without losing their distinct qualities or their glorious individuality, will fuse together in a higher unity and form the European brotherhood. A day will come when the only battlefield will be the marketplace for competing ideas. A day will come when bullets and bombs will be replaced by votes.’ Victor Hugo spoke these prophetic words in 1849, but it took more than a century for his utopian predictions to start coming true. Nowadays, every May 9th, we celebrate Europe Day.
We are going to learn about the origin of European Union, its member states, symbols and so on. Finally, our class will become Europe itself. Each student will represent a country.

Read the following texts carefully and then answer the activities below. You may click here if you want to listen to the European Anthem.

We are celebrating the Peace Day on 30th January. Close your eyes and try to visualize a world of peace enjoyed by all who share our beautiful planet. Everybody can contribute to get peace. Let’s read the following pieces of advice and comment on them.


Although “Blowing in the Wind” has been described as a protest song, it poses a series of questions about peace, war, and freedom. In 1975, the song was included as poetry in a new high school English textbook in Sri Lanka. The textbook caused controversy because it replaced Shakespeare's work with Dylan's. Now, listen to the song and try to fill in the gaps.
