¡Viva San Fermín! Gora San Fermín!

When teaching the topic of holidays and especially the part of the topic where you have to say what you did, I like to use the context of the festival of San Fermín in Pamplona. This is because you have some culturally interesting things to present so that students do not lack things to say that they have done on the imaginary trip to the festival [I make them write an extended text at the end where they pretent to have been to San Fermín]. There are a great many things that happen during the festival in addition to the “encierro” + if you want to read up on what the various terms refered to the best site is http://sanfermin.com/index.php/es/la-fiesta . At some point you will want to show an “encierro” as well (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyUCo-EMS-Q). The resources below go some to way to presenting the topic of a holiday within a cultural context.
