Words that changed the world

Le Lingue Live

con  Silvia Chini, Leonard O'Shea

Rivolto alle/ai docenti della scuola secondaria di secondo grado


Great historical movements and events have been marked not only by the actions of people and peoples but by their words. The inspirational speeches that have have become milestones in history in and of themselves are an example of the power that words have to change. They give voice to a concept, a movement, a crisis. When wielded by a master they can unite nations demanding action with  passion and an incredible sense of belief. They inspire individuals to rise above themselves and can change the course of lives. In this webinar we will look at how these speeches, through language and tone can be used as an educational tool for taking from the words that have moved the world.
