GUIDED TOUR IN PLASENCIA


El pasado 25 de abril algunos alumnos de 4º ESO realizaron una visita guiada en inglés por el casco histórico de Plasencia.

Descubrieron lugares, hechos y monumentos desconocidos para ellos. Al mismo tiempo aprendieron nuevo vocabulario relacionado con el arte y la historia. Toda la visita se realizó en inglés de modo que pudieron poner en práctica sus destrezas orales. Nuestro agradecimiento a la Concejalía de Turismo del Ayuntamiento de Plasencia por esta iniciativa. Ahora cuando estos alumnos encuentren a turistas extranjeros por nuestra ciudad seguro que tienen muchas cosas que contarles y, además, ¡en inglés!

April Fools' Day

April Fools' Day, sometimes called All Fools' Day, is one of the most light-hearted days of the year. Its origins are uncertain. Some see it as a celebration related to the turn of the seasons, while others believe it stems from the adoption of the Gregorian calendar.
