Dear A1-s , Howdy!
On May 13th, we had the visit of Mrs Irene Madarieta, from Burns, Oregon (USA)
We learned about the life in United States, the education system, the jobs,
we talked about crisis and current affairs too.
We also learned an expression used to talk about very efficient secretaries that says:
"she's his bosses girl Friday"
We talked about respect towards teachers in education. (we don't seem to differ very much on this)
B2.2 students joined in too, and so did Izaskun , their teacher. I have been in Portland and Izaskun has been there too, so we could share our memories about the city of Portland, Oregon (4 hours away from Burns by car). Hey, as always the top one topic also appeared: favourite American food. We agreed that we loved clam chowder !By the way, Athletic of Bilbao was playing the final of the King's cup in Valencia, for the first time in 25 years. We wanted to support them, so we brought the flag of the team to Bermeo. Jon wore the team's official t-shirt. In the end they were beaten by the Barcelona, by 1-4. Anyway, everybody in Biscay celebrated reaching the finals. Bilbao, and all Biscayan towns were crowded with people watching the match in super big screens installed in the streets. It was worth celebrating the pride of having a team, composed only by entirely Basque players.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, MRS IRENE MADARIETA FOR COMING TO BERMEO, TO SHARE A BIT OF OUR TIME. IT WAS A REAL PLEASURE.
