Local festivities: “El Pilar”

Hi world!

Last weekend we celebrated in Zaragoza our local festivities in the honour of the “Virgen del Pilar”. It is thought that María, mother of Jesus (son of the Christian God), appeared to the apostle Santiago near to the river Ebro (where nowadays there is a big church commemorating it.

In October the 12th we honour the Virgen del Pilar by bringing her flowers (this year, about 350.000 people made it, dressed with the regional costume)

Hello Session (Malta-Spain)

Hi everybody!

Some days ago we had our first “Hello Session” with Malta. We connected by means of ooVoo (a videoconference software) and said “Hello” to each other.

There were no way of saying nothing more because of the excitement of our pupils and the resulting noise in the classes. Nevertheless, it was an important moment because my Spanish pupils realized that there were real people at the other side of the project, and the Maltese pupils did the same.

In Spain we had problems with the projector, and the session was held directly on my laptop. In the following photo you can see my pupils crowd together in front of the little screen in order to see their Maltese partners.
