European Day of languages

Let's make children be aware of languages are everywhere: in the school of course, but also in the city and why not on clothes...so, let's wear a t-shirt with a message on it!
This is the way we are going to celebrate the European Day of languages tomorrow.

What is your journey to school like?

Hi everyone!
Have you ever thought that in some parts of the world, school can be a hard luxury?
Many children throughout the world have to take the most incredible and inimaginable routes in order to receive the education that some of us may take for granted. Here you have some pictures that show you just how hard can be for some children to get an education.

Good morning everyone!

Hi everybody! Here you have a song from our lessons. We like it a lot because we move in the audiovisual room when we split the group. We usually make a circle and  mime the actions the song describes. CI English scrapbooks include this one.

Goodbye summer

Autumn is easily my favorite time of the year.
Fall is such a wonderful time of year, isn't it? 
Although we can still enjoy a summer weather, some leaves are turning into warm colours. The weather is getting cooler, but it is still fun to play outdoors. 
Today I want to share "Autumn leaves" by Eric Clapton with all of you. 
This is one of my favourite songs. I'm sure your parents, teachers and everybody who loves jazz, will like it.
