Today, some 1st Bachillerato students have made an interview to Umayrah Ali, our English conversation assistant this year. In this interview they have asked her about her life, her likings and her opinion about Spain:

● Where are you from?
I’m from Glasgow, in Scotland.

What are you doing in Spain this year?
I’m here to learn Spanish because I’m studying it at university.

Why did you decide to study Spanish?
At first I wanted to study French and Italian, but I found them hard and I decided to
learn Spanish. It was easier than the others.

What do you like about Spain?
I like the food and the people, and I like the fact that Spanish culture is based on
family. I’m a family person, and that’s one of the reasons why I like this country.

What’s your favourite place in Spain?
I really like Andalucía, specially Marbella because it is near the beach, and I love the sea.

How many countries have you visited?
I have visited Turkey, Hungary, Holland, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

● For you, what’s the best place in the world?
My favourite country is Hungary because Budapest is very pretty.

What do you like doing in your free time?
I really like to cook and in Scotland I​ ​like driving my car and going out​ with my friends.

Do you like animals?
Yes, my favourite animals are cats.

What do you prefer, teaching in primary school or in secondary school?
Both are very different. In primary school children want to speak English all the time, but in secondary school it is sometimes difficult because teenagers don’t want to speak English so much.

MY NEW ENGLISH TEACHER

My new English teacher is Umayrah and she is 21 years old. She was born on 26th of July and she lives in Glasgow, Scotland. In her country it rains very often and they only have one week of Summer.Resultado de imagen de glasgow

In Summer the maximum temperatures are 25 degrees. The food isn´t healthy and they fry everything even pizza and sausages! The traditional dishes are haggis (it is a kind of “morcilla”), shortbread (biscuits with sugar and butter) and fish and chips.Resultado de imagen de traditional scottish food

The traditional costume is the kilt: its pattern has a lot of squares and each family has their own exclusive design. Resultado de imagen de traditional kilt

 

 

She has told us that she is studying journalism and she could see the “World War Z” filmset from her university. She lives in a very quiet town called East Kilbride. Her family is from Pakistan but all of her family is in the UK. She has two little sisters and her boyfriend is of Indian origen. She has two rabbits and three chickens as well. She has never visited Pakistan, although she can understand Urdu, the language of Pakistan.Resultado de imagen de traditional shortbread dog

She has come to Spain to learn Spanish but she says that it is really difficult to speak it. Her favourite Spanish food is “Patatas Bravas”. Now, she is living alone in Cáceres and at the moment she has a few friends here. She loves the city and its weather. She has already visited some Spanish cities such as Seville, Madrid and Zafra. She prefers Seville becasue the beach is very near. During Zafra´s fair, she visited the town with her friends. She was sight-seeing and then they went to have dinner.

In the afternoons she usually goes for a walk, though she doesn´t like sports. Her hobbies are cooking and driving her car anywhere.Resultado de imagen de glasgow central mosque

She can´t eat ham because she is Muslim. She prefers fish rather than meat. When she finsihes this job in Spain she is going to end her degree in Scotland because she is in her last year.

She is lovely and I hope to learn a lot of English and about British culture with her.

Halloween Week

Our students had a great time few days ago. Arroyo de la Luz high school celebrated its Halloween week. The corridors and the doors of most classrooms were decorated with posters, masks, cloths and everything useful to recreate the magic and atmosphere of Halloween. The two best groups of the decoration contest got a big breakfast and everybody got some candy after taking photographs and writing and reading some terrific micro horror stories, which were also a great success. Here we have some of my favorites…

“…We were playing on the porch when we saw that the sky was getting dark. A great storm had begun. We went into the house. A strong wind had started blowing and the windows and the doors opened and closed making a horrible noise. The water was entering everywhere. The electric light went on and off. Shadows floated across the darkness of the porch like ghosts looking for human shelter…” Nuria.

“I always like to read in quiet places, so I used to sit by a nameless grave in the local cemetery and spend hours there until the sunset. On 31st October I did the same, but when I stood up to leave I realized a name had appeared on the gravestone. It was my own”. Victoria.

“My sister died when we were little in a car accident. Every month I have a dream where she appears. I´m in a dark place, and she is in front of me. Little by little she gets closer and closer. He stares me in the eye, and while she is crying… she asks me to go with her”. Nerea.

Week of Music and Dance

We don´t have a world of music and dance festival in Arroyo de la Luz like the one that takes place in the capital of the province every spring; however, we do have a week of music and dance in our little village.

During the last English week, apart from many other activities, our students of third and fourth year of ESO had the opportunity to sing many karaoke songs in front of their fellow partners as well as sing and dance on the stage of the theatre room. They spent a lot of time on the rehearsals outside high school, but they enjoyed every minute of it and saw that cooperation and fun are also good ways to improve another language.

These are some of the videos of the final event…

BACK IN TIME

Logo50

It is a year of celebration. Nothing more and nothing less than the 50th anniversary of our secondary school IES Luis de Morales. It has just turned 50 years since its founding in 1968.50a2

 

For this reason, the English Department has carried out an activity consisting of the development of a Time Line that includes historical, cultural, social, sporting or even very significant scientific events that have taken place since 1968-2018.

Our students of PMAR, Basic Vocational Training , 3rd year of ESO   and 1st year of Bachilleratohave looked for information and, together with English teachers have done this commemorative work which  has been very useful to make an authentic review of the past and compare the lives of their parents or grandparents with theirs at the current time.

 

It’s been hard work, but it’s been worth it!
