Diálogo sobre inmigración con la escuela Ramón y Cajal de Madrid

En octubre del año pasado tuvimos la visita de la escuela española Ramón y Cajal de Madrid. Nuestra escuela fue anfitriona de esta clase de séptimo grado de España durante casi dos semanas. Fue una experiencia muy enriquecedora tener hablantes nativos de español en la clase. Como resultado de la buena relación que los estudiantes tuvieron entre ellos, ambas escuelas decidimos mantenernos en contacto y hacer una actividad conjunta a través de una videoconferencia. Así que finalmente, los profesores de las asignaturas de Individuos y Sociedades y Lenguaje y Literatura tuvimos la idea de tener un debate con los alumnos de séptimo grado sobre un tema actual que podría funcionar para ambos países. El tema elegido para el debate fue "inmigración".
