There is a great exhibition at the Prado Museum (Madrid) that you may enjoy. It is called Treasures from the Hispanic Society of America and I must say it was so much better than what I expected.
Probably one of my favourite places in Madrid, The Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando holds a stunning collection that is really worth the visit. Why?
Last week I was chilling out, just watching some telly and suddenly I remembered that a TV program called Cámbiame (highly recommended for the topic of fashion) was just about to get started. It is quite popular and entertaining but that day… it made me feel really depressed.
The show is about people who ask for a makeover because they want to change their style and for various reasons they have struggled but this post is not about fashion. It is about something that really shocked me and that sadly I had the misfortune to see on other occasions. English teachers that do not seem to have a solid basic level of the subject they teach.
What do I mean? Please, take a look at the following video. The girl is Rocio, an English high school teacher from Spain who has to translate sentences about herself (into English) to random people who passes by.
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:
For all those students of Spanish in their last year in the UK (Year 13 in England and Wales, Year 14 in Nothern Ireland or Secondary 6 in Scotland) who got really good grades, you have the chance to win a trip to Castilla-León (Spain) for two people. How?
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:
