See you!



I would like to thank you all for a wonderful year. It has been a pleasure spending parts of my Tuesday evenings with you.  I hope I was able to help you practice and improve your use of English, or at the very least make class fun and entertaining.  I wish everyone a fun, happy, and safe summer.  I am looking forward to returning to Palencia next year.

Diversity

We touched on this topic a little bit in yesterday´s class and next week I´d like to explore it more in depth.
A popular topic in the USA is diversity. Why is it important? Should it matter?  
This article writes about the benefits of diversity:

This article talks about my city and how it has become the most diverse city in the U.S.  It does get a little political, but that isn´t the focus of the article.

Villages

Villages are one of the most interesting things to me about Spain. I´d like to see if we could have a chat about villages.  Do you have a village?  When do you go?  What do you like about it?  How has it changed?  What does the future hold for it?

Are you interested in being the owner of a village?  You can buy entire villages in Spain.
