English Department and Burlington Books.
British Culture Class. February, 7th.
So last Tuesday, 7th of February, we had our first British culture class with Suzy, who reminded (or taught) us of some of the most curious things in the culture of those people whose language we are struggling to grasp. From now on, our students will remember (let’s hope) what Big Ben is (not the clock) or the four countries that make up the United Kingdom, but only three make up the Union Jack. And we shall have the image of Suzy and Lucía riding their horses for a battle that would make a third of the world drive on the wrong side of the road (or was it the right one?). Do you still remember what Scots wear under their kilts? Maybe we’ll never know. Anyway, we must be thankful to Suzy and Burlington Books for a funny lesson for our Bachillerato students. We just wish we could have a new one next year. Here’s a couple of pictures of the activity.
