Honduran Culture

2000px-Flag_of_Honduras.svgOver the past few weeks, we have worked on a project called ‘Cultures of the World’.  I chose to research Honduras because I did not know much about it.IMG_7004


Compare this country’s culture to our own.

What are the differences? 

Australia:

In Australia we speak English. We don’t really have a traditional clothing, or a specific accent. Everyone wears what they like and everybody’s voice sounds different. We have Australia Day. We eat sausages in bread, fresh fruit and veg, meat pies, fresh sea food, Lamingtons, Anzac cookies, Vegemite and Pavlova. Most households love Spaghetti Bolognese Here we play AFL.

 

Honduras:

In Honduras they speak; Spanish, Amerindian dialects. Over there they have traditional clothing. They have multiple Festivals, such as, Semana Santa. They eat a mixture of African, Spanish and Lenca. they eat food such as: Rice and Beans, Corn tortillas and fried fish. They play soccer.

 

What are the similarities?

We both play soccer. 

 

If you lived in this culture, what would you find most interesting? I would find the History and the food most interesting.  What would you find most challenging? I would find the Languages most challenging.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed Reading about my Honduran RVE Cultures of the World project.

Thanks.?

Irish Culture

Flag_of_Ireland.svg

Over the past few weeks, we have worked on a project called ‘Cultures of the World’.  I chose to research Ireland, because my ancestors were Irish.

IrlandCompare this country’s culture to our own.

What are the differences? 

Australia:

In Australia we speak English. We don’t really have a traditional clothing, or a specific accent. Everyone wears what they like and everybody’s voice sounds different. We have Australia Day. We eat sausages in bread, fresh fruit and veg, meat pies, fresh sea food, Lamingtons, Anzac cookies, Vegemite and Pavlova. Most households love Spaghetti Bolognese Here we play AFL.

 

Ireland:

In Ireland they speak mostly English or Gaelic. Over there the weather is mild winters, cool summers, consistently humid, overcast about half the time. They have St. Patrick’s Day. They have traditional clothing such as kilts and dresses. Over there they have a lot of stews, potatoes and they drink a lot of Guinness beer. They play Gaelic football and Hurling.

 

What are the similarities?

The weather is similar but it does not get as hot over there. We both play cricket. We both  celebrate Christmas, Christmas Eve, Easter, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. 

 

If you lived in this culture, what would you find most interesting.?I would find the History the most interesting. What would you find most challenging? i would find trying to understand the thick accent.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed Reading about my Irish RVE Cultures of the World project.

Thanks.?

 He is locked in his room. He realizes its his Birthday.  He hears a noise and looks out his window. Its the Weasley brothers in there dad’s flying car, so they attach a rope with a hook on the end of the bars around the window.
