The Brexit issue. Another deadline about to expire. What comes next? The ELOS team met Professor Joxerramon Bengoetxea and took an active part in the debate following his interesting lecture. This is their report. Thanks for your contribution.
April 7th, 2019. As many many other issues that concern us nowadays, what we call BREXIT also enjoys numerous experts’ attention, who then willingly and almost “mercifully” give us its keys, origins and possible consequences. Such an expert we found in professor Joxerramon Bengoetxea in the Donostia University Campus: as a law teacher, he is well aware of the economic, social but mainly economic issues surrounding UK’s ongoing divorce with the European Union, which he explained to an extensive group of high school students, among which we were.
An hour-long explanation which really got to make everyone understand the gravity of the issue and the consequences it can bear upon not only Britain, but the entirety of the Union, was followed by yet another hour of questions , when we got to make the exposition much more dynamic and interesting.
Overall, the experience was very enriching and interesting as we got to not only enjoy a greater scope into Brexit itself, but also got to “train” our listening of English from an expert who could rival with a native in his talking.
