March Week Three
This week we have our Extra Activity! We will have a tapas crawl in English on this Sunday March 24th at 20:00. We will meet at the Tastavin Bar in the San Juan street. You are welcome to bring English-speaking friends and family.
This week we worked with music in class, taking a closer look at Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues, Aretha Franklin's Respect, Otis Redding's Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, The Clash's London Calling and Macklemore's Same Love.
For listening, I suggest you try listening and trying to understand the lyrics of some of your favorite songs! Youtube is a great resource, just put the title and lyrics in the search bar. Lyrics Training and SubInglés are also sites for this. For original version check out Inside Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues (mp3 and transcript).
For reading, try reading about Bob Dylan's Song That Changed the World. For original version reading, try some music websites and blogs like Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NPRMusic, or BBC Music.
For writing, please analyze a song's lyrics. What do you think the artist is trying to say? What does the music sound like? Why do you like or dislike the song?
Last, but not least, don't forget that Easter Break is just around the corner! Next we have class as normal, but the following week (April 1st, 2nd and 3rd) we do not have class.
