In our lifes there is a mix of Serbian, Spanish and Cuban culture. There are several reasons why we chose this Spanish word, rayuela (eng.hopscotch), as a name for our school:
- The word itself originally represents a children’s game. In this game you first toss a marker onto the hopscotch pattern. Then you hop over the square to get it. This game has more rules and many variations. However, one of the reasons for choosing this word was that it reminds us of the process of learning. You have to hop square by square, no shortcuts. One cannot touch any lines or lose their balance. Likewise, learning a language demands time and concentration.
- This word translates to Serbian as školice. At the same time, this means little schools. We are a small school, with a big heart and a lot of energy dedicated to our students.
- Finally, there is a piece of art in Hispanic literature call “Rayuela”. It was written by one of the great minds of the Latin American Boom – Julio Cortázar. As him, we also want to mark a difference in language learning.
So, there you go. Now you know what rayuela means. Have you ever played it before?
