On our local craft tour you can find out about the traditional activities in the island. And the best thing about this trip is that it s completely free. You ll be taken to a factory where Q14 jewellery is made, and also a ceramics centre. If you want, you can buy some of the products but that s entirely up to you. The trip starts after lunch on Thursday, and you ll return by 6 pm. If you re interested in astronomy you may already know that the island s one of the best places in the world to observe the night sky. We can offer trips to the observatory on Friday for those who are interested. They cost 90 euros per person and you’ ll be shown the huge telescopes and have a talk from an expert, who ll explain all about how they work. Afterwards Q15 we ll head down to Sunset Beach, where you can have a dip in the ocean if you want before we head off back to the hotel.

Finally, there s horse riding. This is organised by the Equestrian Centre over near Playa Cortino and it s a great experience if you re a keen horseback rider, or even if you ve never been on a horse before. They take you down to the beach, and you can canter along the sand and through the waves. It costs 35 euros and it s available every day. Q16 So there s plenty to do in the daytime, but what about night life? Well, the number one attraction s called Musical Favourites . Guests enjoy a three-course meal and unlimited free drinks, and watch a fantastic show, starting with musicals set in Paris and then crossing the Atlantic to Las Vegas and finally Copacabana. At the end the cast members come down from the stage, still in their stunning costumes, and you ll have a chance to chat with them. It s hugely popular, so let me know now if you re interested because it's no good leaving it until the last minute. It s on Friday night. Tickets are just 50 euros each, but for an extra 10 euros you can have a table right by the stage. If you d like to go back in time, there s the Castle Feast on Saturday evening. It ’s held in a twelfth-century castle, and you eat in the great courtyard, with ladies in long gowns serving your food. You re given a whole chicken each, which you eat in the medieval way, using your hands instead of cutlery, and you re entertained by competitions where the horseback riders attempt to knock one another off their horses. Then you can watch the dancers in the ballroom and join in as well if vou want. OK, so now if anyone ... Q17 Q18 Q19 Q20 SECTION 3 S t eph an ie : Hello, Trevor. t r evo r : Hello, Stephanie. You said you wanted to talk about the course I m taking on literature for children. S t eph an ie : That s right. I m thinking of doing it next year, but I’ d like to find out more about it first. OK, well, as you probably know, it s a one-year course. It s divided into six modules, and you have to take all of them. One of the most interesting ones, for me, at least, was about the purpose of children s literature.
