Movie at City

The last meeting was in TOAS CITY, our student residence. We meet at 6 o’clock with the Belgian guys on the first floor of our building. The plan consisted in watching “Thruman’s show” movie while eating some chips and popcorns. We went into the “common room”, which is a common space for all the residents. In this place, there are two big sofas so we could rest all of us on them. We had a problem with the audio because the volume wasn’t loud enough, so we stayed totally silent to hear the whole movie. Before starting the movie, we made some popcorns in the microwave and opened two chips bags.

I really love this “Thruman’s show” film because it shows a reality very similar to “Big Brother” show. It’s one of my favourite films, that’s why I never get tired of seeing it. It has influenced a lot many music artists and writers from all over the world. The Belgian guys and Aranzazu haven’t seen it before, so we chose it. After watching the film, we started talking about it and translating some words into our mother tongue languages. We talked about some words related to our situation, like film, chips, actors…

Here I put a list of the words that we translated yesterday:
