English University Entrance Exams (PAU)
Cultural talk: Thursday 6th February “HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS”
Among all the new activities the English department is preparing for this school year, we want to remember the one we celebrated last Thursday 6th February. The students of 1st Batx. took part in a talk hold by Mr. Robert Giardina. It was a very good opportunity for the students to attend a talk given by an English native speaker with an interesting content about the customs, cultural aspects and geographical points. This talk was possible thanks to the collaboration we have been maintaining with Oxford University Press for a long time and altogether we are searching new different ways of approaching the English language learning to our students.
THE SPEAKER: Robert Giardina. He was born and raised in the US and has been living in Barcelona since 1990. He is a freelance trainer and teacher in intercultural Relations, Conflict Resolution, and Business English and Communication for the Universitat de Barcelona, EAE Business School and the Universitat La Salle-Ramon Llull.
THE SPEECH: He talked about Pennsylvania. Its history and culture. Philadelphia, Pittsburg. Important facts and interesting curiosities: the flag, the Amish, the keystone, the bell.
