Let’s start knowing a little bit more about the city that we are going to visit in this project. Our first stop in Belfast is going to be the Belfast City Hall, maybe the most famous landmark in the whole city. It is located in Donegall Square, in the heart of Belfast city centre. It first opened its doors on 1st August 1906.
At the end of the session, you will have:
- been introduced to Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland.
- known all the outcomes you have to produce in this project.
- started thinking about what to include in your interview
Watch the video Belfast - A Brand New Day and try to write down at least 4 of the most outstanding events that have taken place in Belfast recently.
After having watched the video, try to answer the following questions orally:
- Do you know any other famous places in Belfast? Do you know the name of any other Northern Irish cities?
- Have you ever been to Belfast? And to any other European capital cities?
- Do you remember any of the monuments you visited?
- Any interesting or favourite landmarks?
- Do you recommend visiting any of these cities? Why? Why not?
If you are eager to know more details about the capital of Northern Ireland, watch the following video:
As you could see, this is a good resource to see places and hear sounds about the city we're going to work on along this project. Which has been the most surprising to you? Is there anything that you already knew? Have you chosen your favourite place in Belfast yet?
You can answer and summarize these three questions in a short monologue and you can share it with your classmates of your group or with the rest of the class.
As you are going to see in a few moments, Belfast City Hall will be the first place you should include on a Google Site map. Don't forget about it! Meanwhile, watch this video about it.
