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.

They had the chance to learn that we are all exposed to mental illnesses and that they should be treated as any other illness we may have, that is, by asking for advice and trying to get some help from doctors.

Thank you all for your participation!

Great teenage inventor

Do you remember that we were talking about inventions in class (in 4º ESO)? Some of you mentioned that you would like to become great inventors.

Why wait? You can start now!
Here is some inspiration for you, Eesha Khar, a California teenager, who is heading to Harvard University after winning a science prize.

Eesha Khare developed a tiny supercapacitor to speed battery charging.

Khare’s device, a black, rectangular type of supercapacitor just over an inch long, can charge a cell phone battery in 20 to 30 seconds, she said. Her device could be used for automobile batteries in the future.

“I will be setting the world on fire,” Khare says.  Why don’t YOU set the world on fire TOO!!!

Inspiring women -Part 1
