Here you have several pictures of a girl from the 1930s-40s.


A clue… Her surname was Frank.

Task 1

Guess who is the girl from the pictures and answer the following questions with your own words. If you don’t know, search on Internet and find the information.

– What was her name?

– Where was she from?

– Who did she have problems with?

– Which book did she write?

– Why did she become so famous?

Task 2

Imagine that you are now that girl and write a short letter (60-80 words) to your best friend about a “normal” day in your life.

On 7th February 2012 people all over the world celebrate the bicentenary of Charles Dickens’s birth. You will probably know that he was a British writer of the Victorian time and you will probably have read some of his books or have watched some of the films based on his works. To celebrate this important date, I suggest you to do this double challenge by searching for information on the Internet. Try to be generous and write IN YOUR OWN WORDS as much as you want following this guideline. Remember that this challenge counts double so write enough. You can use a power point presentation if you want. We may later use it in class.
