Discovering Belfast, you get to a place which has to be familiar to you because you will know the history of the most famous ship in the world, the Titanic. Titanic Belfast is an attraction and a monument to Belfast's maritime heritage on the place where the Titanic was built. The visitor can learn a lot about the stories of the sunk Titanic, which hit an iceberg and sank during her maiden voyage in 1912, and her sister ships RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic.
What about you? Would you like to visit it?
At the end of the session, you will have:
- known a little bit more about the Titanic ship.
- revised how to use and practised the past simple tense.
- started your collaborative Google Site in groups about the city of Belfast.
At this attraction, you can visit the exact place where the Titanic was built. The ships were constructed by the Belfast shipbuilders Harland and Wolff, who had a long-established relationship with the White Star Line dating back to 1867.
Harland and Wolff were given a great deal of latitude in designing ships for the White Star Line; the usual approach was for the latter to sketch out a general concept which the former would take away and turn into a ship design.
To know a little bit more about this place, you can go to its official web, where you can do a virtual visit to the world's largest Titanic visitor attraction: Titanic Belfast.
