    Siesta Spain

    You'll find loads of news articles, e.g.

    http://gospain.about.com/od/spanishlife/f/siesta.htm
    http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/01/01/news/spain.php
    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/11/wo...e/11spain.html
    http://www.allbusiness.com/company-a...1415910-1.html


    Read them, reflect on your own experience of Spain and the Siesta culture (if you have any), write an interesting 500 word essay IN YOUR OWN WORDS, acknowledge your sources (the articles you read for information) and be very careful of plagiarism. Remember that examiners can google too!

    If it is spanish pres you are looking for then 'El Pais' is fantastic for such articles...

    A quick spanish google search came up with this...

    http://www.elpais.com/articulo/porta...epspor_13/Tes/

    But I'm sure there are plenty more out there. Buena suerte!

    If you decide that there just isnt enough to write about, another good topic could be on gender and/ or family roles in spain.

    I wrote a piece on how the role of women has altered since the era of Franco, drawing contrasts between how they were treated during the dictatorship and how life has improved/regressed since then....

    There are plenty of statistics available out there and it was very, very easy for me to write.

    Again, 'El Pais' is good but so are sites like Wikipedia and various Franco websites -just look on google.
