Today Carmen, our dear librarian, will be teaching you. She was the one who introduced Robinson Crusoe to you, and i hope you will behave and take good notes of everything you do. I will be walking with 1st ESO students around the neighbourhood of Santa Catalina and visiting Es Baluard. We were there last year, don’t you remember? So now it is their turn.

This year we shall investigate new cities, I bet you cannot guess the one I’ve got in mind.. Let’s see if you can figure it out before next week. The one who finds out first will not have to do today’s homework.
Anyway, Taylor will be with 1st year ESO students too, so you’ll have to wait until next week to see her. There are differences between Brisith English and American English other than accent. Americans and British use different words to call the same things.
