"The European Day of Languages" etwinning
This year, we participated in a project in which children from other European countries’ schools send each other cards in order to celebrate language diversity. We communicated with them and talked to them about our lives while celebrating our diverse identities.
In this project, children also learn some things about various languages. People celebrate it the 26th of September because we want children to learn new languages and to know more people around the world.
It is an exchange through homemade postcards sent by post from a school to another in Europe, allowing the “special” discovery of other languages!
We think that this project is very interesting and that we can learn many things about other countries.

BOOSTING LANGUAGE SKILL (by Nagore and Amaia)
In this project, second of Bachillerato students meet many people from several countries so they can speak and communicate
with them. The students upload videos and photos so others see them and comment on their photos and give feedback on videos and presentations.
Doing this they relate to other people and are able to communicate with the children and a so with the teachers through a chat or skype videoconference sessions in skype.
We think that this is an interesting project because students learn about other countries through comments, photos, videos and they share
and discuss their opinions,
dreams and expectations about life.

Halloween is a date celebrated on the night of October 31st. Celebration is most practiced in the United States of America and Canada. Children wear costumes and they go to peoples' homes saying "Trick or treat!" to ask for candy or sweets in the United Kingdom and then people give it to them. This practice originally involved a threat. A threat is when someone says that they will do something bad if they do not get what they want. In this case the threat could be explained as: "Give me a treat or I will play a trick on you.” People often dress up as ghosts, witches, or other scary things for Halloween.
It is said that on the night of All Hallow's Eve the gap between the living and dead worlds are closer, and that dead souls come back to earth. Then the souls would look for a living body to possess for the next year. People, not wanting to be possessed would leave food and drinks outside their doors to please the souls. Over time, beggars started taking and begging for the food and then children started to take the food as well.
In our town, Sestao , we celebrate Halloween too. The children take their costumes and go to the shops saying “Trick or treat!” and take sweets. Years ago, in Sestao doesn’t celebrate but, now Halloween is so popular because, children have free sweets.
