The UK, not just England

Este foi o título da amena charla en inglés que Sam, representante da editorial Burlington Books, impartiu o martes 5 de abril no salón de actos do noso instituto para o alumnado de Bacharelato. A charla foi dinámica, participativa e do máis animada, cun showman que lle revelou ao alumnado algúns dos grandes enigmas da cultura británica: por que os británicos conducen pola esquerda ou cal é o obxecto máis olvidado no metro londinense. A respostas están nas mentes dos alumnos de bacharelato, así que localizádeos e non vos quededes con dúbidas.

On Thursday 5th April, an English boyy called Sam como to talk about some typical things about his country, England. Frist of all, he showed a photo os himself when he was young, he had hair them and he made a joke about it, since he´s bald now.
Them, he displayed a picture of the British flag which was composed of three more flags, and he asked: "What is this?", and one of the pupils answered: "an English flag, and it gave him a pen as a reward, but to get it he had to say: woow!
Later he showed us a kind of an English man with a skirt and a sword, he also showed us an English car with the steering wheel on the left. Later he showed us a horse and asked if someone had horses, and one girl said that she had two. In the end he asked two questions like in the programme: "Who wants to be a millonaire", and one question was right, and the other wasn´t but both students got a book as a prize. He left very happy because he said we were a fantastic school, because we pronunce very well, not like in Madrid or in Andalucía, according to him.

A couple of days ago, a native English man came to our school to tell interesting facts about England. He told us why in England people drive on the left, this is because when England was in war, the knights could drew their sword quickly.
He told us too that the English people love short words, because a Jaguar is call "a Jag", and the London underground is called "The tube".
In my opinion, this chat was very interesting, we learned a lot of new vocabulary and I think that should have more chats.
