Viaje a Cork 2014: 09 julio
Esta semana han llegado nuevos alumnos de las islas Canarias y de Italia. Había una reunión para conocerse donde podrían jugar a las cartas, dardos o billiard entre los distintos grupos. Los alumnos también empezaron un proyecto sobre la vida en Irlanda: comida, vida en casa, deportes y el foclore irlandés. Utilizaron las aulas multimedia de la universidad donde reciben las clases y salieron también a preguntar a la gente en la calle.
Las chicas del grupo jugaron a ‘hurling’, un deporte tradicional irlandés, y algunos alumnos jugaron a fútbol contra un grupo de jóvenes irlandeses.
Wednesday, July 9th
With the new week came new arrivals from the Canary islands and Italy so as group sizes increased so did the range of activities. A meet and greet was held at a local venue where various games such as cards, darts and billiards were played between groups so they could socialize in an informal setting. The students also began putting together their projects this week on various aspects of Ireland from food and homelife to sport and folklore. They were able to use the many facilities at CIT such as the media rooms to do research and create digital presentations as well as going out and interviewing members of the public to get a real perspective. The sports continued with the girls trying their hand at the traditional sport of hurling and some local teenagers from Cork playing a few games of 5-a-side football with some of the students. A much more culturally mixed start to the week.
