Bienvenido a México

To mark the visit of the President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto to the UK in 2015, the British Council put together some exciting resources to help you celebrate Mexico and the Spanish language in your school.

These include:

  • A colourful PowerPoint presentation about Mexico that can be used in classes or an assembly
  • A story in Spanish and in English by the Latin American Children’s laureate Francisco Hinojosa (who is from Mexico) 'La Peor Señora del Mundo/The Worst Woman in the World'
  • Two lesson ideas using the story – a writing activity and a Spanish language activity
  • A creative activity based on the work of Mexican artist Diego Rivera.

Many thanks to Jo Speak, Deputy Headteacher of New Bewerley Community school for her help in developing these materials.
