Do you know about languages in contact? Do you know that we can have a mix of languages in this case? Have you heard about Espanglish or Spanglish? And what about Llanito? Do you know that in Gibraltar they have their own language, and not only English and Spanish are spoken? Do you think language build the identity of one person?
If you would like to find an answer to these questions, and know more about this topic, you are invited to come to the workshop: Languages in Contact: Spanglish and Llanito given by volunteer from Spain Alvaro Marinero.
When I was a child, my mother used to take me from museum to museum to museum, hoping that one day I would share her interest in art. It bored the hell out of me every time and I swore to myself I would never ever enter a museum in a non-obligatory context when I’m older.
I think it is time to write already, don’t you think so?
I have been here one month already. Time flies. As you imagine, usually when you go abroad, at the beginning you have to overcome the cultural shock. During this first month you need to get used to this new country, its culture, its people and its language. This last thing is what I am going to talk about it. As you know I am very interested in languages, so I think it would be a interesting topic!
