Lotta Ahlberg, winner of our 2007 Sant Jordi competition
For our 2007 Sant Jordi competition [blog] we asked students to tell us about their favourite Spanish phrase. The jury (the Spanish teachers at IH, that is!) particularly liked the story Lotta told us.

Front page news: Espanyol made it to the UEFA Cup Final
It's not often that Espanyol — Barcelona's 'other' Spanish first division football team — make the headlines. They did this morning, having beaten favourites Werder Bremen 1-2 to reach the UEFA Cup Final (Glasgow, May 16) 5-1 on aggregate.
If you are coming to Barcelona, you certainly don't want to miss a Barça game at the Nou Camp, but a match at Espanyol's Olympic Stadium is quite something too.

The theme for this week's Friday Club is Mexico (May 4th). There'll be Mexican music, a Mexico trivia quiz and a piñata, among other fun and games.
Not sure what a piñata is? Come along and find out… Or you could check out the pictures of piñatas on our Riviera Maya site.
