3.en.5. actors and actresses, food and poems: Andrea, Jilin and Daryl

Dear Students,

Yesterday your class mates, Andrea, Xilin, and Daryl did a great job. They acted as real professional actors in the Poetry Celebration that took place at El Gran Hotel. You remember the poetry workshop, don’t you?

On Monday we’ll go on an outing to El Olivar. The outing is part of our class project this term. FOOD AND EATING HABITS.

We hope you’ll learn a lot of new things, and we expect you’ll  find out information about food, shopping habits, local traditions and shops.

We’ve chosen a poem by Enric Casasses to link poetry and food.

…. I el paradís, un bon plat

de verdura.


al pot petit hi ha poca


i al cor trancat la veritat

més dura:

mal amagat és mal que

no té cura,

la llibertat, la llei qu és

més segura,

la veritat, bandera que

no es jura,

i el paradís, un bon plat

de verdura.

Enric Casasses

On behalf of the Ramon Llull and 1st Year ESO E, and part of the enthusiastic audience, Bernat, Claudia, Judit, Àngel, Sara , Pepe and María.

3.en.4. Too many cooks spoil the broth?.. not really

Some times real life shows us that idioms are not always true.

Rául and Molly, on behalf of the English Department are cooking a delicious “paella” for Alberto Leal’s 1st Year Batxillerat students.

Take note! you must work on a recipe for our outing on Monday, so a paella might be a good idea.
