28th February: The Day of Andalusia.

What do you know about Andalusia?

  • Look for information about our Autonomy Community of Andalusia in the Internet. It must be in English. You only have to copy the information and pictures in your English Notebook. This information must be related to Andalusia, it can be about a monument, city, place, etc. When you finish this work you should show it to your teacher.
  • Here you have an example.

    Andalusia (Spanish: Andalucía) is an autonomous community of Spain. It is the most populous and the second largest, in terms of land area, of the seventeen autonomous communities of the Kingdom of Spain. Its capital and largest city is Seville. The region is divided into eight provinces: Huelva, Seville, Cádiz, Córdoba, Málaga, Jaén, Granada and Almería.

    Andalusia is located south of the autonomous communities of Extremadura and Castile-La Mancha; west of the autonomous community of Murcia and the Mediterranean Sea; east of Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean; and north of the Mediterranean Sea, the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates Spain from Morocco, and the Atlantic Ocean. The small British overseas territory of Gibraltar shares a three-quarter-mile land border with the Andalusian province of Cádiz at the eastern end of the Strait of Gibraltar.

    Andalusia and Villanueva Mesía

    • Write about Andalusia and your town in the English Blog. Can you explain how is your town?, how do you celebrate the Andalusia´s day?.
    • You can write about our traditions, festivities or any relevant aspects that you think are interesting.
    • Remember: Do a space next to a punctuation mark. Put capital letter then a point. Beware of copy and paste from a translator. Translations are nonsense! Beware of spelling or typing mistakes!

    Hello teacher Louis!

    I’ll talk about my village and the Day of Andalusia.

    MY VILLAGE
    My village is Villanueva Mesía. It isn’t big but it’s very beautiful.
    Villanueva is situated is the west of Granada, in the Loja’s area.
    Approximately, there are 2200 persons in this village.
    The typical meals are the stew of snails, pork chops with potatoes, salad, “porra” and, especially, the green asparagus.
    Some important festivities of Villanueva are: Candlemass Day (2/February), Saint Mark Day (25/April), Pattron Saint Sebastian Day (20/January)...

    ANDALUSIA’S DAY
    In our school, we celebrated this day in the morning.
    The teachers organize a little party like the Day of Peace and the students make paintings and read texts about Andalusia.
    We must learn the Andalusia’s hymn and in this day we sing it.
    In Social Science, we write a long text and the best text is read for a student that reads very good.

    Greetings!! ^^

    While the Eurasian lynx bears rather pallid markings, the Iberian lynx has distinctive, leopard-like spots with a coat that is often light grey or various shades of light brownish-yellow. Some western populations were spotless though these have recently become extinct.

    The head and body length is 85–110 cm, with the short tail an additional 12–30 cm; the shoulder height is 60–70 cm. The male is larger than the female, with the average weight of males 12.9 kg and a maximum of 26.8 kg, compared to 9.4 kg for females; this about half the size of the Eurasian lynx.[2][4][5]

    The Iberian lynx does not differ greatly from the Eurasian lynx but more closely resembles a bobcat. The face is more cat-like than that of Eurasian lynx. It has a short stubby bob tail with a black tip, and a tuft of black hair on the tip of the pointed ears, whiskers and sideburns.

    This lynx was once distributed over the entire Iberian Peninsula. It is now restricted to very small areas, with breeding only confirmed in two areas of Andalucía, southern Spain. The Iberian lynx prefers heterogeneous environments of open grassland mixed with dense shrubs such as Arbutus, lentisk, and Juniper; and trees such as Holm oak and Cork oak. Mainly in mountainous areas covered with vegetation; maquis or "Mediterranean forest".

    Your English teacher Luis said...

    Raphael your work about the Iberian lynx you must do in your English Notebook and not in the blog. You must write in the blog about Andalusie and your town. Ok?

    Andalusia north Montefrío township, east of the town Íllora, on the south by the Municipality of Zafayona Moraleda, southwest of the town Huétor Tájar, and west to the town of Loja.

    Its altitude is 486 m, latitude: 37 º 13 'Longitude: -4 º 00'.
    I want than Villanueva Mesia is a important town in the future, influent and tourist sites.
    Villanueva is a town between the provinces of Granada, Malaga and Cordoba which was maintained for over two centuries as the border between the kingdom of Granada and Nasrid Christian kingdom of Castile. It was the "last frontier of Al Andalus", which is why the peoples and lands that form are an endless source of legends, stories and battles.

    I like Villanueva and I do not want to change

    HELLO!!

    I Reyes Gordo Fuentes student of his 2nd ESO and then I'm going to talk about my people and as we celebrate the day of Andalusia ...

    My Village.

    It is located in the middle of the Genil fertile plain, in the ahore of river by its right margin, near of where the Cacin flow its waters to him by ther left.One of main the attractions of the town are the tree-lined avenues and strolls that border the fluvial along the town centre.Not always it has been, like, now, comunicated with the opposite border by a bridge, being necessary to cross the river on a boat, reason why the town was also called Villanueva Mesía De la Barca.

    The stamp of its white architecture next to the green one of its natural surroundings, the cosy character of its people and the fame of its excellent sausages make advisable the visit to this calm corner of the fertile plain.

    The Gastronomy.

    In Villanueva good sausages and oils of quality are produced.Its cultivated field provides the citizens with flavourful vegetales that give way to dishes like remojón of potatoes and orange, the pipirrana, the malena club and the seasoning of asparagus.

    Andalusia`s day

    Its strategic position, from which dominates the skyline and the vega of Granada, it suggests that there were buildings prior to the arrival of Muslims. Whole, completely walled, has an irregular shape bounded on the north by the valley of the Darro, south of the al-Sabika and east of the Cuesta del Rey Chico, which in turn separate Albayzín and Generalife located on the Cerro del Sol.

    Hello!
    I am called Jose Ángel and am 15 years old.
    The day of Andalusia is celebrated on February 28. Every year the Andalusians commemorate this historical date of the referendun signed on February 28, 1980. The day of Andalusia is very important for the Andalusians. I think that better community of Spain is him(her) for the marvels that Alhambra has for ejemplo:La, the Mosque, the Weathercock, e.t.c. We emphasize in the culture(culturing) of the olive tree that we are some of the producing principal ones, nice places of tourism since our climate is Mediterranean and enjoy the Sun and mountains and our gastronomy because of it the Andalusians are proud to celebrate this great day.
