Noise Pollution Podcast

This is the first emission of our school podcast programme. As you said in your comments, it was really interesting to work on the script in class because all of us learned quite a lot about noise pollution and its dangers.

Here you have the bilingual version recorded by Victoria, Carmen, José Manuel and Esteban. Listen to either of them, or both, and don't forget to take the speakers' advice.

I'd like to thank my colleague Antonio Gallego for making it possible to have the programme on our blog.

Este cuadro siempre me ha atraído. Cuando estaba en el colegio lo veía en muchos libros de texto y siempre me llamó poderosamente la atención. Era un tipo de pintura muy diferente al de las otras ilustraciones y me intrigaba la tragedia que parecía contar. Luego supe que era de Picasso, que esa forma tan diferente de pintar se llamó "cubismo" y que realmente el cuadro contaba algo tan trágico como una guerra. ¿Sabéis por qué se llama "Guernica"?

That's Art

This is one of my favourite paintings. Do you know who painted it?
I could see the real painting at Musée d'Orsay in Paris. It's amazing how different it is from the reproduction I have at home! Its bright colours catch your eye immediately and you feel you can get inside.
What about you? Comment on a painting you like.
