People often dress up or masquerade during the celebrations, which mark an overturning of daily life.
Your task is to send me an e-postcard imagining you are in a foreign country (click here or on the envelope image on the right-hand menu to access my e-mail address).

Nine ESO-4 students travelled to Altentreptow, Germany, from January 29th to February 4th, in order to take part in the Comenius School Partnership European Week. There they had the opportunity to get to know their colleagues not only from Germany, but from Poland and Estonia, practise their English and get involved in various cultural activities.
The organization held a logo competition open to every student from the 4 schools involved in the programme and we are proud to announce that our ESO-1 student Andrea Aguado Oliveira's design was awarded the 1st prize thanks to her wonderful design (click to enlarge):
A joke (or gag) is a phrase or a paragraph with a humorous twist. It can be in many different forms, such as a question or short story. To achieve this end, jokes may employ irony, sarcasm, word play and, of course, polysemy and homophones, as well as other devices. Jokes may have a punchline that will end the sentence to make it humorous.
