English course in Peterborough

Last 23rd June, 30 students from 4th ESO at our school had the great luck of enjoying a grant to attend a course in England. They went to Peterborough with the teachers Cándida Gallardo and Lola Aceituno. They lived with host families who were very nice to them and had lessons at World School. But what they enjoyed most were the activities such as travelling to London, Cambridge, Stamford or going to the cinema, to the bowling alley, to the swimming pool or visiting the cathedral or the museum at Peterborough. The best thing is that they have had the opportunity of speaking English and improving it a little bit.

End-of-year dinner.

Last 21st June we went for dinner to celebrate we have been together for four years. I think these four years of our bilingual adventure have been a success.
Thanks to your bilingual teachers, Esteban, Mª Jesús, Pablo, Juan José, Antonio for their enthusiam, hard work and dedication. Without them this wouldn't have been possible.
Thanks to our language assistants along these years, Greg, Sarah, Hilal, Geraldine, Antonietta, Mark, Chris, Jacqui and Julia. They have been great colaborators as well as friends.
Thanks to your French teacher, Diego, for his support and for having joined any suggestions and activities related to the bilingual project. Thanks to your tutor, Esther for being supportive and collaborative.
And a big THANKS to you for being wonderful students, enthusiastic, friendly, hard-working (most of the times) and patient. I hope next year we will be on board on a new boat: 1st Bach Bilingual. Those of you who are leaving, please, don't forget us. We will miss you a lot. Good luck in your new life!!

The Mystery Celebrity Game

This is a very famous show that was broadcast on CSB television in 1950 and ran for almost 18 seasons. The show features a panel of four celebrities that had to try to guess the job or occupation of an invited celebrity. The mysterious celebrity in this video is the surrealist artist Salvador Dali. The video is funny because Dali performs his own role perfectly, the comments are quite witty and everything is very "civilised" . Watch it paying special attention to the questions used and we'll play it in class. (Seen at THE ENGLISH BLOG)
