albondigasMany thanks to Isaac who set me a challenge in class today. Isaac went to a Mexican restaurant recently and some of the words on the menu were Spanish. His challenge was, “Do you know what the word ‘albóndigas’ means in English?”. Fortunately I did!

If you want to know how albóndigas are made, here is an albóndigas recipe.

Los Números


Try playing Fizz Buzz in Spanish!

Count in Spanish and replace any number that is divisible by 3 with the word ‘FIZZ’ and any number that is divisible by the number 5 with ‘BUZZ’. If a number is divisible by both 3 and 5, say ‘FIZZ-BUZZ’ E.g. cero, uno, dos, FIZZ, cuatro, BUZZ, FIZZ, siete, ocho, FIZZ, BUZZ, once, FIZZ, trece, catorce, FIZZ-BUZZ…

El Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Carnaval 1

The Carnival of Santa Cruz on the island of Tenerife is held each February. Santa Cruz is the capital of Tenerife which is the largest of the Canary Islands.

The Carnival attracts people from all over the world and is considered the second most popular carnival after the one held in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Why not design a carnival costume of your own and bring your design into class?
