NATO, Politics and Economy


I didn't realise that working as an English teacher can also involve being aware of current events issues. These days I have been having lessons with a NATO administrative employee who might be bound to work in the NATO office in Munich Germany. He usually prefers to practice his english communication skills so we get to discuss topics relevant to his imminent job transfer. In particular he is involved in processing industrial contracts for the manufacture or production of NATO's recent two fighter planes project European Fighter Aircraft (Eurofighter 2000) and the other older model Tornado.He was kind enough to give me documents relative to this project, in which I'm also very interested . I have been learning interesting things about this particular project especially how the share distribution and funds allocation are subdivided between the member countries, the logistics, the contrast of specs of the two projects and an infinity of other interesting informations.
On the other hand, I have the same situation with this professional economist student of mine who usually prefers to discuss political and economic topics, and so I have to make efforts in keeping myself informed of the current event issues particularly in the European territories or Italy. Among other things we get to discuss the ongoing media (print and broadcast) revolution wherein the public interaction and participation are involved. As it is, it's not easy to find the time for all the things I should do. Like taking care of domestic chores, groceries, cleaning, ironing clothes, taking care of my child and my husband's needs, cooking washing the dishes etc. Add to this preparing lessons, surfing the internet for things that aid me in my work. I barely have time to call and chat with my friends. Nevertheless I am very grateful to my GOD because I am Aware that it was HE who has put me in this blessed position, a job I consider perfect for me, in every aspect. I PRAISE MY GOD for all the blessings HE keeps pouring into our lives.TO GOD BE THE GLORY! AMEN.
