Social media are one of the best ways to interact with people around the world and get to know about global issues.

1. What does GLOBAL mean? What does ISSUES mean? 
In pairs, brainstorm and list GLOBAL ISSUES that may come up and be interesting to you.

2. TWITTER. Create a twitter account. Find and follow  @scholarsbastida  and  @InstitutBastida

3. Once your account is created, find and follow your classmates on Twitter.

4. In pairs, discuss on the following statements about twitter or any other social media. Decide: YES or NO.

a) Firstly, you need to upload a selfie where you can be identified.

b) You need to follow as many people as you can. Everybody is welcome. The most                        followers, the best!

c) You can get information about your favourite hobbies and issues on Twitter by                                following people with your own interests.

d) You need to clearly write your home address on your profile so everybody can identify                  you.

e) You can interact with people by following and mentioning them.

f) Hashtags have no use.

5. Finally, tweet about what you now think BEING A GLOBAL SCHOLAR means. Include a picture from Google Images (select images without rights or reusable) that represents what you say. Like, retweet and comment any of your classmates' tweets (the ones you like best).

SKYPE TAIPEI - LA BASTIDA (report by Maria F.)

Today (Friday, March 31) we had our second skype session with Taipei.
The call was great. This time it didn't cost us as much as the first time. We didn't have to prepare as much as the first time, but we had to memorize the answers to their questions. Taipei people have also been doing the hard work for this call, not like the other school.
We were able to answer most of the questions, although they didn't answer all the questions, it was not their fault, it was for the time.
I think this time we did the same thing in front of the camera (except some). Some talked a lot and others didn't speak. But it was still a success.
The connection was a little bad, and that's why we didn't understand what they said, but the best thing is that they had a PowerPoint of the things they were saying and so it was easier to understand.
We gave them Cacaolat the typical drink from here and we sang a song by Cargol treu banya, and they also sang us a song in Chinese, that we didn't understand much, but it was very funny, and I guess they didn't understand us much either.
But overall everything was excellent, we have greatly improved our English.
And we want to keep making more video calls. And having lots of fun, and that's what matters.
