Just saying Hello

I live in Madrid but I used to live in Manchester. I read poems but I used to write them. I love innovation in storytelling but I used to get confused by it.

I just wanted to introduce myself.

    Hi Donal! Welcome to our community!

    My story is kind of the other way round, I used to live in Madrid and now I live in London... What are you doing there? Do you have any projects you want to bring to life? 

    Great to have you here!

    I'm interested in poetry and the creation of the world of each poem. I think there are many ways to experience poetry and that's why transmedia looks appealing. That being said, I am no expert,

    I am working with the Universidad Internacional de La Rioja on three things - (a) creating a new language platform, (b) directing seminars and (c) advising in a project to take Shakespeare into Spanish schools. In my own time (what I have of it) I am trying to launch a community theatre project for Madrid.

    Great to be here.

    Great, Donal. My background is in theatre, so what you said about taking Shakespeare into Spanish schools and about your community theatre project for Madrid sounds really appealing to me! Do you have a website or more information we could have a look at? 

    About your language platform, how does it work? Is it a piece of software, a database, a community?

    Belen, you're a theatre person from Madrid! That is fantastic!!

     

    I have a personal website http://www.donal.info

    and a theatre website http://www.teatromad.com.

    The language platform we are building from zero and so it is still under wraps. It will be for students of UNIR (http://www.unir.net)

    I am also playing with the idea of creating my own microcursos of English...but that's just an annoying buzz in my head at the moment

    :-)
