“GOING UNDERGROUND”

LAST WEEK 3ºESO AND 4ºESO STUDENTS WENT TO SEE AN ENGLISH PLAY CALLED “GOING UNDERGROUND”. A FEW OF THEM (Claudia, Juanfra, Dani, Adri and Judith) GOT REALLY INVOLVED IN THE PLAY AND HAD FUN ON STAGE. I THINK MOST OF THEM ENJOYED IT AND LEARNT SOMETHING (FOR EXAMPLE THE WORD “FREEDOM“). I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR OPINIONS. DID YOU LIKE IT? WHY? WHY NOT? DID YOU UNDERSTAND IT? DID YOU LEARN ANYTHING?

IF YOU ARE CURIOUS, YOU CAN HAVE A LOOK AT THIS WEBPAGE: http://www.movingonsl.com/es/obras.html . You can listen to the songs from the play.
