On Holidays

Well... it's my students that are on holidays. I still have to wait a little bit.

As all my students have exams today and tomorrow I don't have to prepare classes.I have some things to do, though. For example I should be reading a play for the oral exam at school tomorrow. I don't feel like reading. I've been playing instead.

From now on you'll be able to listen to the posts in Take it Further.

Moonlit Knight

I know you should be studying, preparing your exams. However, I'm here to interrupt you. I have been playing with quizzes.
A private student asked me to work with a song by Genesis, a group I used to love when I was a teen. Here's a video, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight, Peter Gabriel is singing.


It's a song full of metaphors. Here you can read an interesting analysis and you can tell me in your own words what you think, does it sound too old?

From Spain

Ana Concejero is a teacher of English from Malaga, Spain. I met her in Edublogger World.

Have a look at what she has written about this blog and about Taking it Further. I'd really like you to visit her and write your comments, you can write in Spanish. If you feel like practising your English, have a look at this other post; it's worth reading it and watching the video. Write down your thoughts there too; this time in English.

Active Student

Last week somebody wanted to know who the designer of "Puente de la Mujer" in Puerto Madero (BA, Argentina) was. Some of the students in the group assumed Leo had that information; well, he didn't. However, the following day he sent us an email enlightening our limited knowledge.

This is his email:

As I promised you, the designer of Puente de la Mujer in Puerto Madero
is Santiago Calatrava. He also has some paintings, sculptures and
more information at:


Thanks a lot Leo, we know you keep your promises. (I guess nobody but me has thanked him.)

Another active student (much younger, but with a blogger profile) posted two short articles on Puerto Madero. You can have a look here and here.

I didn't download this picture from Flickr this time. It's also there, though. I'm the artist this time. The boy on the run is my husband's grandson happily crossing the bridge on a wonderful spring day last year.

What about...
You: Thanks, Leo.
Leo: You're welcome.
