Polar Adventurer

Posted by Speakeasy News > Monday 12 March 2018 > Ready to Use

This A1+ document is about teenage Australian adventurer Jade Hameister, whose dream came true in January 2018 when she completed the third challenge in the polar hat-trick, becoming the youngest person to ski to both Poles and Greenland. Interestingly, although we can expect her to be considered a superhero by A1+ students, she insists on the importance of trying rather aiming at perfection. Just the kind of advice a foreign language teacher encourages pupils to follow!
