Súbete al bus de la Semana Británica 2015

La Semana Británica que llevamos a cabo en Guatemala ha sido siempre nuestra forma de mostrar lo mejor de nuestra nación.

Hablando tu idioma y el tuyo y el tuyo…. quieres hablar el mio?

Especialmente cuando todos esos idiomas se hablan solamente en un país. En los siguientes días estaré participando en eventos en Panajachel, lo que unirá a líderes […]
