I have 2 girls, 12 and 10 years old, who want to go to Spanish speaking (not Catalan because they only speak Engl & Sp) overnight ski camp for 2-5 days in Pyrenees. I find websites but it's not clear about the overnight ones for kids, seems all I find are resorts with day classes. Please share if anyone has information. Thanks!
I had a visit to the UK this year and was astonished to notice how rude everyone seemed to be, especially the young people. I am probably sounding like an old fogey here, but when I was a teenager, we held doors open to let other people pass, didn't push and shove in queues etc. I saw many instances of younger people being pushy and rude while I was in the UK. On the other hand, the young people here appear to be much politer (or maybe I have been lucky?) - they are more polite and perhaps a little more mature when dealing with other people. Has anyone ele noticed this?

Hi there,I am the mother of two wonderful chidren, aged 5 and 7 years old. Every year we take part in a handmade(by the children) christmas card swap, but the organiser is not doing one this year, so I am trying to find participants in different countries who would be interested. Basically what you do is this. 1. register your interest, stating ages of children and address. Then you will recieve a list of names and addresses. YOu have to make one card for each participating family, adn it is nice ot include a letter,poem,drawing about your own family traditions, or the traditions of the place you are currently living. I usually set up a world map, so that we can put pins in and see where the xmas cards are coming from. Each family would be responsible for sending a total of 5 cards.
Hello I am coming on holiday to the Costa Brava in June with my two autistic children. When we are out and about I put them in T-shirts that explain their condition because neither of them can talk and often behave weirdly. I have found that the T-shirts help to reassure people because they can quickly read why the children are behaving oddly. We live in France and so their T-shirts read "je suis différent mais pas méchant. Patientez s'il vous plaît, je suis autiste". Can anybody help me with how to translate that into Catalan? Google suggest this: Jo sóc diferent però no dolent. Esperi, si us plau, sóc autista. Does that convey the same meaning? I just want to get across the idea that although the children are odd they won't harm anyone intentionally and are not nasty or horrible they just need people to be a little bit more patient and understanding. It would also be helpful for me to know how to say "She/He is mentally handicapped" in case the word autistic doesn't mean anything to someone. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Imogen

I was at a meeting yesterday, and a very interesting and sad topic was being discussed, violence to women. The Mossos have set up a confidential help number 900 900 120 They are targetting this crime and will assist and advise when called, its a priority reaction number, even if the injured party wont prosecute, the Police will (Mossos) They also offer personal protection and incarceration for the offender until the trial, even if it takes years, to protect victims.
Can anyone recommend a good Spanish Tutor to me? I've been learning with "Spanish with Michelle Thomas", but have great difficulty in communicating. I can ask the questions and do basic chat, but have difficulty in understanding when they speak back to me. It might be nerves, maybe just needing to build my confidence a little and I thought private tuition might help me do this. Paula Anne
