Since I am still saving up in order to afford a PGCE I can’t spend much money on treats anymore but fortunately, there are still ways to treat yourself without breaking your piggy bank. This time I would like to recommend the Instituto Cervantes e-library. I’ve recently got access to this wonderful library catalogue and I would like to share my opinion about it.
Last but not least, to finish with this trilogy of recommendations I would love to speak highly of this Spanish TV show called This is art. The show explores art (music, painting, sculpture, literature…) and its history through different emotions.
How stunning does this location look like? Well… it is, in fact, a photograph of a picture. A massive one that makes you feel like you were actually there and that it is part of a fabulous international exhibition called The Maya – Mystery of the lost cities that it is taking place at the MARQ in Alicante until the 7th of January of 2018.
A bad student from a small village who became one of the most famous writers EVER!
He’s been in Spain for a long time (60 years) and after watching the interview I feel like he knows us so well. People often find interesting the perception others have from us and in this case, I love how in such simple words he characterized Spain and its people with such detail. Bold and clear statements on:
Last week, I received an e-mail with the following subject:
Discounted books from £2! Learn with the British Museum.
I mean… 2 P O U N D S! 😮 Of course it took me seconds to go to The British Museum Shop Online. Where to find them?
Why to buy them? Because they are so cheap and useful for teaching but, to be honest, this time I’ve just bought them as a treat to myself. My pics were:
Today is #InternationalWomensDay. You’ve probably seen it everywhere. GOOD!
I was just writing on this day to recommend a super lovely book (2 volumes actually) that celebrates extraordinary women (Layers, musicians, writers, astronauts, journalist… even a volcanologist!) that although history did not grant them the tag of ‘superstar’ (to most of them) they deserve it so very much.
Culottées (Tome 1): Des femmes qui ne font que ce qu’elles veulent AND Culottées (Tome 2): Des femmes qui ne font que ce qu’elles veulent.
Not just your average pretty boy, Daniel Brühl has become one of the most well-known actors of the last two decades. From his international breakthrough role in Good Bye, Lenin! (2003) there has been a long list of quality movies he is been involved with.
You must have seen him in blockbusters like Inglourious Basterds (2009) (where he plays a great baddie) The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) or maybe Captain America: Civil War (2016) but I’d recommend to have a look at his filmography since there is a wide range of genres and roles that deserve some attention.
