My name is Eric Fuenmayor, I am a student from 4th ESO and I would like to explain you the artistic work my group and I have done in the English subject.

At the end of the 2nd term, all ESO students made Oral Expositions about Ireland because the 17th of March is the biggest Irish celebration, Saint Patrick’s Day.

In 4th ESO, we were looking for information about different facts, celebrations or history about the country and preparing theatre plays, presentations, myths and songs to explain it. Most of the groups tried to do an original exposition simulating a TV Quiz contest, showing how to dance typical Iris songs, explaining the mythological characters of Ireland or preparing traditional food for all the students. It was a very great activity that taught us many curiosities about Ireland and the feast of Saint Patrick’s Day, which also helped us to improve our English speaking in a funny way.

My group, formed by Luis Gonzalez, Aryf Miatlenka, and I made an original exposition in which we made a parody with Justin Bieber’s song called “What Do You Mean?” to explain the traditional feast of Saint Patrick’s Day, when, where and how it’s celebrated and the typical food and acts that Irish people do on this day. Also, we made a video clip based on the official one, simulating that Saint Patrick is kidnapped by the Leprechauns, the folkloric characters of the festivity. Here you are the link to watch the video, and you can also find the lyrics below: https://youtu.be/KWIvkm0MMc4

Saint Patrick’s Day, “oh oh oh oh”
When is it celebrated?

How is that you don’t know?
Saint Patrick’s Day, “heeie”
The sev(é)nteenth of march
You’ve to learn something more
Saint Patrick’s day
“ooh” Saint Patrick’s day

It’s celebrated almost all around the world

“oh oh oh” Saint Patrick’s day

Think about the Leprechaun

Saint Patrick’s day

People go to streets and start playing

Irish people use orange and green

the four-leaved shamrock is a big symbol

it’s used to give luck, hope

and happiness

Up to the river Chicago

It’s dyed in green

a parade crosses the streets

between people

You can eat corned beef

or some cookies

Oh, what do you think about it?

Saint Patrick’s Day, “oh oh oh oh”
When is it celebrated?

How is that you don’t know?
Saint Patrick’s Day, “heeie”
The sev(é)nteenth of march
You’ve to learn something more
Saint Patrick’s day
“ooh” Saint Patrick’s day

It’s celebrated almost all around the world

“oh oh oh” Saint Patrick’s day

Think about the Leprechaun

Saint Patrick’s day
