    Discipline and Children

    by scottishvisitor Updated Nov 28, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We past the local primary school here in Lloret a fair few times usually on our way to the bus station. We both work in our local primary school and were naturally drawn to the sound of children at play. The school like ours has two seperate playgrounds, one for older children and one for younger ones. Unlike ours, we noticed the children were unsupervised but then were surprised to hear a voice from a tannoy giving some little boys a gentle rebuke - the reply was a thumbs up signal from the children who instantly adapted their behaviour. I do wish our own children were as well behaved as these little darlings. The kids in the picture were at an after school football training class with only one adult in charge their response to her instructions were immediate. Seems we have some work to do back at school or maybe in the home.

    Two different languages

    Here in Lloret De Mar as in the rest of Catalunya region people speaks two languages: Catalan and Spanish Castilian. I've always studied Castilian but I have to say that Catalan was more similar to Italian language and maybe to Sicilian dialect.... strange but true!

    People say that if you touch the foot of the bronze fisherman's wife, while looking at the horizon, all your wishes will come true.

    Catalonia is not Spain

    The flag of Catalonia

    Captions “Catalonia is not Spain” or “Independent to Catalonia” are in the city’s walls. National Catalonian flags are blowing. But common moods in the city are friendly and positive.
