On December 6th we celebrate the Spanish Constitution that was passed in 1978. The History bilingual teacher has displayed the articles of the Constitution in English so that students can do some activities. Great job Maria José!!
We asked our students of 1 bach (Spoken English) to record a video interviewing a famous person who is aready dead and we called it “The Impossible Interview”. Some of the intervews were amazing but this one is just a must-see.
Thanks to Mercedes Acién, Eva Caracoche, Alejandro Galiano and Anabel Benavente. Great job!!
Do you like playing? Do you like using your mobile phone? If your answer is Yes, you will like this game: Quizizz. This has been a collaborative project designed by our bilingual team and the students, too. The results of the game are here:
I had my first class today with Jose in English 1 (eso 1) where students were to present on bibliographies they wrote about famous people. After a few people presented Jose realized that a lot of the students had directly copied from a translator and it wasn’t their own thought process. Jose then explained the importance of writing on your own as you won’t learn anything new if you don’t and that he didn’t expect the students to be able to write at a mastery level, as they are still learning. I know exactly how the students feel because I am always nervous when writing something for my Spanish class and afraid of making mistakes, but I also understand I will never improve if i don’t make mistakes. As a famous quote reads “You will only fail to learn if you do not learn from failing”, which is really important idea when learning anything new. The next class was with Gilberto where I read an article in English, then helped the students with pronunciation when they recited it back to me. Everyone had such good pronunciation and I barely had to correct anyone. My last class I had here was with Jose in English 2 (eso 2). In this class I talked about myself and the students asked me questions about my life, as this was my first class with these students. It was really fun to hear all of their questions and what they wanted to learn about me.
Today is my last day here and I’m really sad to leave tomorrow. Everyone has been unbelievably nice and I can’t believe the kindness everyone possesses here. I have been able to have the wonderful opportunity to spend three weeks in Berja exploring a town filled with culture, being able to share wisdom with students here, and most importantly was able to have an amazing experience. Once again I want to thank all of the students, professors, and everyone else I have had the pleasure of getting to know here. Everyone has made me feel comfortable and made my time here even more wonderful. I wish everyone luck in their life and hope good things will come to you.
