Holidays!

At last! Time for holidays!

I hope you have all enjoyed the English lessons this year and I wish you all have a good time over the holidays.

It’s time to relax, or to study, if you haven’t been lucky enough to pass all the subjects 😦

In any case, I encourage you to continue practising your English over the summer. Don’t forget to keep watching films in English and listening to music in English!

I leave you a couple of websites to practise your English in a more enjoyable way, with games.

Have a great summer!!

Social awareness Workshops ESO

Here I leave you some information about some of the latest workshops my students had the chance to attend at school.

 2º ESO-B: Take care of those around you!

A few weeks ago we had the chance to receive some students from 2º Bachillerato, who, with the help of people from the NGO Interred, helped us think about how important it is to take care of our environment and of those around you.

Thank you all for your participation!
