Today in Social Sciences class we have started talking about a funny mistake our classmate Lucía made on her journal: she confused "sheet" and "shit". After spending a while laughing, Paqui has said that the people who have not accepted the invitation to Blogger, they have to.
Later, we have started the first unit (a continuation of The Modern Era) with a small introduction of what we're going to learn in this unit: Renaissance art, the Hispanic Empire and the 17th century. Within the 17th century we are going to learn some things, like demography, society, politics, culture and art.
Then we have talked about studies, PAEG and Bachillerato (we have talked so much about education systems). For example, the Chinese people have to study a lot in the school and in private lessons - they spend their whole youth studying, and that's no good in my opinion. Paqui has explained us that we'll have to take an exam when we finish ESO and Bachillerato, because of the new "Lomce" education law.
After this, we have seen two pictures about Renaissance art. They were "David" by Michelangelo, and "The Birth of Venus" by Botticelli. Although David was a real person, both of them try to show the body beauty and not so much the realism
In addition, we have learned some new concepts like: Income Tax Return (in Spanish "Declaración de la Renta"), Decline (decadencia), demanding (exigente), to afford (permitirse), marble (mármol) and slindshot (honda).
