Conference time!

 Our 4ESO students had the chance yesterday to enjoy an interesting talk about how to become a president in the USA.

 As a school, we were very honoured to have Janet deCesaris with us. She is a professor at the Pompeu Fabra University. She kindly accepted our invitation to participate in our English Week but, due to technical problems, her talk had to be postponed until yesterday. The conference took place in the School Hall and the students enjoyed the chance of having a native American speaker at the school.

The talk was really interesting: she went through all the long, difficult steps the candidates of both Democat and Republican parties have to follow before they even have the possibility of being elected candidates for their party. She made the students think about whether the American electoral system is a fair one or if there existed a way of improving it and how. She also gave her view on the present elections in the USA and who seemed to be the most plausible candidates. At the end of her talk the students had the chance to ask her some questions about it.

We would like to express our most sincere gratitude for her contribution. Thank you so much, Janet!
