Gap years

This week I´d like to discuss gap years.  If you don´t know what that is, you can read this article:

Have any of you been on a gap year?  Where did you go?
If not, would you have liked to?  What would you have done?  Do you encourage or discourage your children from taking a gap year?  Here´s a list of some of the pros and cons of taking a gap year:

It´s important to note that you can take a gap year whenever; it´s not just for those who are graduating.  You can do it now or if you are planning on changing careers.  This article is a compilation of stories of different people that have taken a gap year at different stages of their life:

Picasso y MInou

En la sesión de abril del club hemos leído un libro sobre Picasso y su gato cuando vivían en París.
El libro nos ha gustado mucho y además hemos aprendido muchas cosas sobre el pintor, por ejemplo que era español, de Málaga e inventó el cubismo, que es pintar con formas geométricas.

Uno de los juegos que hemos hecho ha sido averiguar qué cuadros de grandes artistas pintó a su manera Picasso. ¿podréis acertar tan bien como lo hemos hecho en el club?

estos son los cuadros de Picasso, ahora ponemos los originales...

Taller de inglés: Goal setting (Expanded)

Due to the fact that I sent out the article so late and did not give everyone enough time to read through it, I´ve decided to go ahead and talk about this topic the following week as well.
The article I sent out uses a lot of slang.  Please take notes notes on what you don´t understand and I´ll be happy to explain it in class.  As they say: to truly speak a language you must understand the slang.

Think of goal setting as different from New Years resolutions.  Resolutions are things that you want to change whereas goals are long term things you would like to achieve.  What are your long term goals?  Your 5 year plan?

Goal setting is also useful in the workplace.  I´ll leave you with this additional article.  Can any of you use some of the advice given in your place of employment?

Do you have goals?

First off I would like to apologize for sending out the article so late. With Holy Week I lost track of time and it slipped past me.  

Do you have goals?  What are they?  I'm hoping this week everyone can share what goals they have set for themselves and how they plan on going about achieving them.  

If you need help realizing your goals, here's 6 ways on how you can do that:
