Professor d’anglès no era suficient / English teacher wasn’t enough

In english, right after the first picture!!!___________________________

Treballar amb 600 nens durant la setmana no era suficient. Poca feina… la preparació de les classes, la correcció de més de mig miler de papers per setmana, el transport amunt i avall per la ciutat… no, no era suficient. Ara, augmento el repte a ensenyar, també, castellà. A partir del 2 de juliol donaré 6 hores (setmanals) de classes particulars de castellà a un bon jan tailandès que vol estudiar-lo perquè “li agrada com sona”.

Aquesta és la principal novetat d’una setmana marcada per no tenir internet a casa. Aquesta i la recuperació de jugar al “cors” de windows (corazones) en comptes de navegar sense rumb pel facebook i els diaris electrònics.

I, avui, és un dia especial. No per la revetlla de Sant Joan (que també) sinó perquè avui la Xalita fa anys. Felicitats!!!

Working with 600 kids during the week wasn’t enough. No much job to do… lesson plans, checking more than half thousand papers per week, moving all around the city… nope, it wasn’t enough. Now, I’ll upgrade my personal challenge on teaching, also, Spanish. From July the 2nd I’ll teach 6 hours (per week) of private lessons to a thai guy who seems to love how that language sounds.

That’s the main news of a week when I didn’t have internet at home. Well, that and the recovery of playing “Windows Hearts” during my boredom instead of surfing the net.

And today is also a special day. No just because it’s “Sant Joan’s eve*” in Catalonia (Revetlla de Sant Joan), but also because today is Chalita’s birthday. Happy birthday!!!

* “Revetlles” are the parties which liven up the few hours of darkness from sunset on the 23rd to sunrise on the 24th June, which is the day of Saint Joan. On the night of the 23rd June, Catalan villages and cities celebrate the “revetlla” of Saint Joan, who we know as Saint John the Baptist, and welcome the arrival of summer. 
It is the longest day of the year, and is wrapped in magic, symbols and legends. Saint Joan is a night of discovery. The 23rd June is the summer solstice, when the sun is at the highest point it ever reaches in the sky. In the celebrations of Saint Joan the “astre rei”, the king of the stars, is venerated as a symbol of fertility and richness, while lighting bonfires is an attempt to replace the strength that it is losing.
Fire, the mysteries of Nature, food, songs, sayings, dance, remedies; everything involved in the celebration of Saint Joan, is part of the transformation, where what is present in our everyday lives take on a new meaning.

      A Manresa sonen molt més que a Cardedeu.

      Gràcies per les felicitacions en qualsevol cas. Una abraçada per a tu també!!!
