A new year begins...

I would like to say hello to my new students in San Fernando and I hope we have a very fruitful and intense year. As I told you in the induction session, assessment will be carried out in three terms and you will have to succeed in the four language skills: writing, reading, speaking and listening skills. If you want to know more about how an "eoi" works, click here.

The books for this year are:

First year: New English File Elementary. Clive Oxenden, Christina Lathan-Koenig, Paul Seligson. Oxford University Press.

Fourth year: New Inside Out Upper Intermediate. Sue Kay and Vaughan Jones. MacMillan.

To start with, I'd like to add a humorous touch. Watch this video and I hope you don't have so many problems with English as this poor man.


Quisiera saludar a mis nuevos alumnos de San Fernando. Espero que tengamos un curso muy fructífero e intenso. Como os dije en la presentación, la evaluación tendrá lugar en tres evaluaciones y tendréis que superar las cuatro destrezas: comprension y producción oral y comprensión y producción escrita. Si queréis saber más del funcionamiento de una eoi, pincha aquí.

Los libros de este curso son:

Primero: New English File Elementary. Clive Oxenden, Christina Lathan-Koenig, Paul Seligson. Oxford University Press.

Goodbye to my students in Ayamonte

This is a quick note to all my students from this past year to tell you that we won't be seeing each other this year. I've been sent to San Fernando.

All the best. Goodbye.
