Como habréis podido comprobar en la página web de la escuela, está a punto de abrirse el período de matrícula o de solicitud de vacante para el curso próximo 2021-2022. Todavía hay muchas lagunas sobre cómo van a funcionar las cosas ya que todos dependemos de la situación del COVID y de las autoridades sanitarias. Por favor, leed con detenimiento la resolución de la Consellería publicada en la página web de la escuela porque hay algunas novedades interesantes, como los cursos online para B1 y B2.

As this tough face-mask school year is coming to an end for some of you, I’d like to write a few words to say THANK YOU and to let you know how much I appreciate the great effort you’ve been making to get the hang of “BLENDED LEARNING” (face-to-face classes + virtual individual work on AULES) in these difficult times of Covid-19 restrictions.
We’re all -teachers and students alike- sick and tired of group partitions, wearing face-masks to teach/ attend classes and do pair work, using hand sanitizer 24/7, the daily cleaning and disinfection of desks and chairs, social distancing, ventilation and all the problems involved for listening comprehension etc……Nobody can deny this has been arduous, strenuous, exhausting work …It hasn’t been easy for me either as it affected my mood and I do admit I wasn’t at my best for both personal and professional reasons . As your teacher, I feel proud of you , “you passed the test with flying colours” no matter what the final results were, as long as you think that you learned something and did not waste your time . I hope to have made the right decisions, anyway….
Despite the difficulties I DID enjoy teaching YOU and it means a lot to me to know that you also enjoyed my classes and appreciate my effort. Fortunately vaccines have arrived and I DO hope next year some of the present preventive measures will go away and we’ll be back to normal or … sort of…
As Nina Simone sang “Every time I say goodbye, I die a little…” However, this is not a goodbye, just a “see you soon”.
Enjoy your summer, you deserve it and good luck ( for those taking further exams)!!

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR WRITING SKILLS, YOU MIGHT FIND A POST WRITTEN BY MY COLLEAGUE, CRISTINA CABAL INCREDIBLY USEFUL. IT’ S ABOUT A NEW DICTIONARY ONLINE CALLED SENTENCE.DICT WHERE THEY USE WORDS YOU NEED IN SENTENCES (IN CONTEXT) FOR YOU TO SEE THE WAY THEY REALLY COLLOCATE IN ENGLISH. YOU HAVE A SCREENSHOT OF THE WORDS “FAKE” AS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT FAKE NEWS, BUT IF YOU´RE INTERESTED, I DO RECOMMEND READING CRISTINA´S POST.
