Georgian day in Kaspa

In October we had a guest in our school-  Natia Jibladze from Georgia. Natia, a graduate in economics came to Poland with her friends to realise a project in which they share knowledge about Georgia country  and its culture.   We learnt from Natia that  Georgian language is the largest language of the Kartvelian language family spoken in the South Caucasus mountain range near the Black Sea. It is  also the largest indigenous language of the Caucasus .  It is written   in a unique alphabetic script called mkhedruli.  The language has an ancient literary tradition extending back to the 5th century AD. In the picture below we can see  Natia`s name and surname written in Georgian language. Natia wrote a few letters to let us see this unique alphabet. In Georgian language there are sounds different from the ones in Polish language and and thus difficult to pronounce for us. Natia also told us about traditional Georgian Dance and music. She demonstrated a few steps used in women`s dance and encouraged the students to follow her . Georgian people are very friendly and generous. They are eager to host  guests  and to invite  them to their family festivals . Khinkali are Georgian dumplings with meat or  cheese and spices stuff. They are made of twisted knobs of dough. They look like little masterpieces. We must make them one day during our English and cooking lesson! Here is a recipe and instructions on how to make them : Natia`s country  is one of the oldest wine regions   in the world. Wine production  and traditions are inseperable from the national identity. We hope that Natia`s visit made our students search for more information about this beautiful and interesting country. Last but not least, great thanks to Zosia, who hosted Natia and who brought her to our lesson.  ...
