Cork

June 23, 2010

Hi there guys!!

I’ve been in Cork, in Ireland, now for four days and I’m having a great time! People are really warm and nice, the landscape is beautiful and we’re even enjoying some rays of sun (which I didn’t expected at all!)

This is Cork

I’m doing a very interesting course on pronunciation and I’m coming up with excellent tips to help you improve it.

Be prepared to work hard on pronunciation next year!

Tonight I’m going to a ceili (a traditional Irish party to dance and hear Irish music). I’ll tell you all about it!

In the meantime enjoy and good luck if you are still taking examinations!

POP ART.

On Monday, Alicia, Fernando, Sergio and I  were in the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC) in Malaga. There we saw some very interesting piece of art of this American artist that in 80’s played a important role in the birth of pop art.
The pieces of art that we saw were highly related to advertising.
An example is the piece of art of VW in which the artist makes a piece of art with the advert that the German car company made to sell  in America, showing the negative characteristics of the car.

James Dean, Rebel without a cause.

This famous piece of art in in the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York.

As you all probably know by now, a General Election in Britain has recently been held (notice the passive voice!)

The ruling party is now a shocking coalition between Tories and Liberal Democrats. Do you know what it means?

Conservative MP David Cameron is the new prime minister of Great Britain, forming an unlikely alliance with Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg.  Watch this video and read the transcript if you want to know more.
