When I introduced this blog, I said I was going to talk about the most interesting cultural aspects from English-speaking countries. Well, it was time! Here you are the first one. Next Thursday 24th is Thanksgiving Day. Because of this, I would like to dedicate this post to so special day in the United States. A brief introduction and a new treasure hunt are waiting for you...

The last September, I attended a conferences organized by Ministries of Culture and Education from Spain on ways of reading. Yes, ways of reading, you have read right. It was very well attended by teachers, librarians and people from the sphere of reading and edition. The sessions were a really mixed of topics into book culture so to speak: storytelling and the important role of grandparents, great storytellers through the time, the use of interactive whiteboards at the schools or the interesting programme broadcasted on Spanish TV, Página 2, about promote reading. No doubt I would have gone to each and every one of the conferences that were held there but if I had to choose a session, I would choose the one about Kamishibai. Do you want to know why? Do you want to know what it is exactly? Read on and put into practice in your English lessons... why not?
