Don't forget that this week is January's Extra Activity! We are going to visit and discuss the photograph exhibit De 0 a 100 at Casa de La Imagen (San Bartolomé Square). Meet us there on Friday January 31st at 18:00. You are welcome to bring English speaking friends or family, but let them know that the event is all in English!
This week we tackled some of the world's amazing mysteries: The Great of Egypt, the Bermuda Triangle, Roswell, the Nasca Lines, and D.B. Cooper. We debated some of the theories about how and why these things happened, but we may never know the whole truth!
Learners could start with something easy, like the story Pyramids at Listen a Minute (mp3, text) or a video about the Bermuda Triangle. For original version, why not watch one of the videos from National Geographic: Stonehenge Decoded, Inside Area 51's Secrets.
Learners can read the story about D.B. Cooper, the famous fugitive who hijacked a plane and disappeared in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest: D.B. Cooper Lives On Part One and Part Two. For original version, check out some texts about some of the mysteries we discussed in class: The Roswell Incident.
For writing this week I would like you to write a summary and your opinion about one of our planet's great mysteries. You can choose any of the above, or something else, such as Bigfoot, the Easter Island statues, El Dorado, the Roanoke colony, or a topic of your choice. You may have to look for some information online, but be sure to search in English!
