English around us

A world of words



A long search for something that is difficult to find, or an attempt to achieve something difficult.

The photo exhibition “Journeys to School” tells an inspiring story of girls’ and boy’s journey to school, a story about courage and determination, their  quest for education despite all obstacles.

After watching the video, answer the following questions:

  • What type of difficulties do some children find in their journeys to school?
  • Which situations shouldn’t stand on the way of education?
  • Name three countries the narrator mentions.
  • What does Nelson Mandela say about education?
  • What about you? How do you get to school?
  • How long does it take you?
  • Who do you go with?
