EOI Fuengirola: 25th Birthday! Any Contributions?

This year teachers and students are preparing things for our 25th Anniversary Celebration. Some people are preparing songs, videos, activities of various sorts… And this post is to mention one of them:

The Mag. Before we part in December, for the winter holidays, is the deadline to hand in contributions for a multimedia magazine we will publish towards the end of the course, to celebrate!

And, for instance, we would like to include the post here on “seseo” and “ceceo”, by Melania

I’m also collecting thoughts by students on what it’s meant for you to study a language or languages at this EOI. (And as you know, we need to turn any references to particular teachers, to a general reference to teachers, so it’s best if you sort that out yourselves! 🙂

I also wanted to tell you all that if you are interested in contributing, you can talk to your teacher — or post here, if it’s about topics that we can bring up in Loving Andalucía. For instance, misperceptions or negative generalizations on Andalucía or Spain, so we can help people learn to see reality! 😀

It would be great to have pieces by students on places worth visiting in Andalucía, for instance! You can write an article, or do a more literary piece, or you can record an audio or video!

I’m also going to write a piece on politeness in Spain, so foreigners can learn about our culture and respect it. If you have ideas for this, or things you’ve observed, please, let me know. The piece could be cooperative writing! 🙂

Celebrating Book Day: Federico García Lorca

lorcaWhen Lorca was murdered by Franquist officials, they burned/burnt his books. They wanted to wipe out any trace of Lorca’s existence. Like many other Spanish people, his body has not been found and is probably in a mass grave.

Audio. MF (teacher) reads out a bio on Lorca at Poets.org, a US American Poetry website, and makes a couple of brief comments. Listen here: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0H612ziPfGy

Articles. Here is a recent article published in British The Guardian newspaper. And another article

Website. Casa-Museo de Lorca. Museum-House

Video

We couldn’t find a video where Lorca’s poems are read with an Andalusian accent. 😦 Please, let us know if you do!
