BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Moments of glory



OUR SUPER NON-BILINGUAL STUDENTS  (September 2011- May 2018)

 

The school year is coming to an end. Actually, our students in 2º Bachillerato have already finished with us and are getting ready for their Selectivity exams!!!

Congratulations to our non-bilingual students for their excellent results in English!!!!

However, this is no surprise for anybody as four of them have already got their B1 in French, seven of them their B2 in English and some others their B1.

 


Six years ago, we came to a commitment to fight bilingualism, that is, to have the best proven results in foreign languages and we have done it. 

It has been a real pleasure to work along with you. 

 

I will miss you!!! Here's the song I dedicate to this super non-bilingual generation:




And on Saturday, 26th May, another moment of glory:

  4. Tennis is a sport that is practiced between two players or two pairs on a rectangular track divided transversely by a net; it consists in pushing a ball with a racket over the net trying to bounce in the opposite field and that the opponent can not return it; the matches are disputed to three or five sets following a complex scoring system.
    tennis courts are usually cement, grass or clay is a very cool sport.

    regarding Luka Dončić.

    cannot I think that, bearing in mind that he is 17 years old and all the things he has done and that hardly anyone has done, he is already prepared to play in the NBA as he is even better than some of the players who are playing there.
