Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

El Catedral

Yesterday, we had class and worked on various projects for class. We didn't take many photos, but we got ice cream at our favorite place so far (with all natural ingredients)

Today we visited El Catedral for our class. We learned a lot about the cathedral. For example the cathedral is the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. The catholic church houses 60%  of the gold in the world as well (at least that is what we think the guide said). The cathedral also has a tomb where Christopher Columbus and his son are supposedly buried. After a short tour, we also got to go up to the top of the tower. It was a beautiful view of the city. The tower used to be the tallest point in the city as a law said that nothing could be larger than it, however today there is another torre that is being built outside of the city center near the river that is similar in height. Just like las saetas the people here don't like the tower but it is likely that both will become symbols for Sevilla like the Eiffel Tower is for Paris. We took lots of pictures on our film camera and took a few with digital.

We are gradually meeting and getting to know our speaking partners more and more. Today we had a coca cola- for the first time in ten years.
