HOW TO BE AN ALIEN

3rd year students are working on How to be an Alien (1946), by George Mikes. It is a classic of British humour that has sold an incredible number of copies. It pokes gentle fun at the English and their relationship with foreigners, "alien" meaning in this context any non-English person. The book is characterised by much humour, affection and a total lack of rancour or bitterness. Mikes, an immigrant from Hungary, demonstrated not only his knowledge of English society but an insight into the English language.

3rd year students are going to translate some quotes from the book. The aim is to offer the best possible version of the texts into good Spanish.
