Español: Durante el trimestre de primavera, los alumnos del Programa de Inglés para Jóvenes han participado en un proyecto de fotografía.

El tema de la fotografía ha servido como vehículo para usar el inglés de una manera auténtica e interesante.

Como parte del proyecto, los alumnos…

  • Investigaron sobre fotógrafos importantes en internet
  • Aprendieron y hablaron de diferentes estilos y elementos de la fotografía
  • Visitaron dos exposiciones fotográficas en Madrid, e hicieron investigaciones antes de asisitir: “Los Angeles de Julius Shulman,” Fotógrafo arquitectónico, y “Desvelos,” Mujeres Africanas
  • Escribieron sobre fotos que eligieron e hicieron presentaciones orales en clase.

La Exposición:

Los alumnos han sacado fotos relacionadas con temas distintos y las han presentado en clase.

Con este proyecto, el dicho no podría ser más válido: “Una imagen vale más que mil palabras.”  “A picture is worth a thousand words!”
