1.en.1 D&E some training before setting off on our journey

Hi everyone  and welcome back to school routine!

To set off= to embark on a journey

After a long, long summer, here we are again, ready to start. Some of you ( half of the group) are already used to working with this blog, but for the other  half  the blog is new, so we need a bit of time before we can set off on our journey together.

While we grasp blog and class routines, we’ll try to get to know our new classmates and teachers. Also, before setting sail we’ll spend a few days dealing with the Olympics.  We cannot let such an important sports event pass by without bringing it to our class, can we?

ath·lete   /ˈæθlit/

In the Interactive video Olympic bodies published by the Guardian, 32 British Olympic athletes talk about their bodies and their training.


  • Every student  will be assigned one athlete.
  • Read carefully his/her  testimony and investigate a bit his/her sport and performance in the Olympics. You can activate the text only version of the video.
  • Then, you will exchange information with your classmates.
  • This table will help you prepare for the questions your classmates will ask you.
  •  Print it.
  • It would be a good idea to print the image of your athlete at the back
