But here's also a video which shows the history and the expansion of London's Tube network from 1863 (152 years ago). Watch and listen the whole story:

Now that we're about to start our holidays, remember that a good way to practice your English is watching films in the original English language with subtitles (either in English or Spanish/Galician). And it's always great to watch a film which has a bit of everyday life. Here's a recommendation, which is still on at the local cinemas, but it would be interesting to be able to watch in the original language: "WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY". It's a 2015 British comedy-drama, directed by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkins and starring Rosamund Pike, David Tennant and Billy Connolly, and some three charming kids in between, during their last summer holidays at the Scottish Highlands. More on its plot HERE. The video trailer below.

A week ago today, during the 2015 2nd BAC Graduation, our Galician teacher Miguel Mato, mentioned a poem by Scotts-man, Robert Louis Stevenson calledWe've searched the internet to find it, and here it is for you to read:
"TO ALL THAT LOVE THE FAR AND BLUE".
"TO ALL THAT LOVE THE FAR AND BLUE".
To all that love the far and blue:
Whether, from dawn to eve, on foot
The fleeing corners ye pursue,
Nor weary of the vain pursuit;
Or whether down the singing stream,
Paddle in hand, jocund ye shoot,
To splash beside the splashing bream
Or anchor by the willow root: Or, bolder, from the narrow shore
Put forth, that cedar ark to steer,
Among the seabirds and the roar
Of the great sea, profound and clear;
Or, lastly if in heart ye roam,
Not caring to do else, and hear,
Safe sitting by the fire at home,
Footfalls in Utah or Pamere: Though long the way, though hard to bear
The sun and rain, the dust and dew;
Though still attainment and despair
Inter the old, despoil the new;
There shall at length, be sure, O friends,
Howe'er ye steer, whate'er ye do -
At length, and at the end of ends,
The golden city come in view.
