This course our school remembers a famous classic adventure novel by the French writer Jules Verne: "Around the world in eighty days".

Read it! Travel! Dream! ... Enjoy yourself!!


Phileas Fogg starts a travel (on Tuesday, October 2, 1872) around the world with his French assistant Passepartout and they try to circumnavigate the world in 80 days, from London to London, using all kind of means of transport (at that time).

They meet a Princess in India (Aouda) and Fogg marries her at the end of the story.

Detective Fix follows them during all the trip because he thinks they robbed a lot of money from the Bank of England.

They finish the adventure on Saturday, December 21, 1872, just for Christmas celebrations.



A mysterious and rich British gentleman of forty, who travels around the world in eighty days with his French assistant Passepartout and is followed by Detective Fix.


Jean Passpartout is the French Fogg’s servant. He is about thirty and single, with multiple past occupations, such as acrobat, gymnast or fireman.


Mr. Fix is a detective from Scotland Yard who believes Fogg is the robber of the Bank of England and follows him around the world.

The British currency is the pound sterling because they do not use the Euro in the UK.

£ is the sign for the pound placed before the number.

One pound (£1) is made up of 100 pence (p).

The singular of pence is "penny". The symbol for the penny is "p".

They have both coins and banknotes and current coins are:

1 penny, 2 pence, 5 pence, 10 pence, 20 pence, 50 pence, 1 pound, and 2 pounds.

Current banknotes are:

The 5 pound note, the 10 pound note, the 20 pound note and the 50 pound note.


The official currency in the USA is the dollar, and its symbol is the sign $ placed after the number.

One dollar equals 100 cents (¢).

Each coin has got a specific name, so:

  • 1 cent = penny
  • 5 cents = nickel
  • 10 cent = dime
  • 25 cents = quarter
  • 50 cents = half dollar
  • 100 cent = dollar

All coins are silver except 1 cent, which is bronze.

All banknotes are very similar in colour and size, so be careful to identify their value.

On 7th February 2014 the Winter Olympic Games start and they close on 23rd.

They will take place in Sochi, Russia (a beautiful place where there are palm trees and beaches; this is one reason because a lot of the snow will come from special machines).

Eighty-eight different countries will take part in this event.

On this occasion there are fifteen winter sports. Some of them are: ice hockey, skiing, ski jumping, snowboarding, bobsleigh...

The Games have got three animal mascots – a snow leopard (a beautiful native cat from the mountain ranges of Central Asia), a hare and a polar bear.
