Today's lesson has been a little bit different because we have spent time speaking about a new project. As this unit is very long, Paqui has decided that we are going to make a project in pairs or groups of three about the last part of the unit (Spain during the 19th century). Each group have to talk about one of this topics:- Charles IV's reign and the Peninsular War (1788-1814)
- Ferdinand VII´s reign and the regencies (1814-1843)
- Isabella II´s reign (1843-1868)
All the details about what we have to do are explained in the previous post written by Paqui, please read it.
After this we have corrected the chart about the revolutionary wave. Paqui has explained how France became the II Republic and the plebiscite called by Napoleon which made him Emperor.

In the last five minutes we have watched a video about the changes in Europe during the 19th century. You can watch it here.
Finally, as always, here are the words we've copied for the glossary:
-Grandnephew: sobrino nieto
-Great uncle tío abuelo
-Plebiscite: plebiscito (a referendum whose result obliges those who called it to make a political decision)
