Oscars 2018

     Un año más, y van cinco, presenciamos una de las principales exposiciones de la creatividad de nuestro alumnado de cuarto curso: el festival/concurso de cortometrajes en inglés, Oscars Profesor Tomás Hormigo.


     On Friday (not 13th) 25th of May the fifth Oscars Profesor Tomás Hormigo Awards were given by a ceremony of the kind we are used to celebrating: the red carpet, Oscar statuettes, the presence of lots of our teachers (mainly the whole English board and headteachers), Mr José Luis Caballos´ bad jokes, even a try of musical performance with the help of our beloved Mariano and, obviously, the premiere of our students´mini-masterpieces. 




     After a funny introduction by our teacher, making reference to groups, the school year and the projects and the duet “City of Stars” performed by Jose Luis and Mariano (via whatsapp video), we saw the five finalist movies, which eventually shared the prizes:



-Illusion is a first-person story about a teenagers´ betrayal and suicide which won the Awards for Best Movie and Best Screenplay.

-Weird Neighbours is the result of the wildest Harrison Genders´performance, project winner of the Best Actor category.

-Monday the 13th is a fun and hysterical piece emplaced in a frightening setting, which got the technical prizes (Best Edition and Best Music selecction).

-Friends got the Best Actress Award (Jessie Linton) and Best Message awards.

-The Truth, mocking on our politicians won the statues for Best Comedy and Best Non-Native English.



     Excellent work and really rewarding for us English teachers. Congratulations everyone!

LONDON 2018

  




     Trece alumnos de 3º de E.S.O. acompañados por dos profesores participaron el viaje gestionado por el programa bilingüe de nuestro centro, consistente en una salida de inmersión lingüística con clases intensivas, estancias con familias y visitas a los lugares más representativos de la capital británica durante cinco días.


      This year has been special for a lot of reasons but undoubtedly one of the most remarkable activities which have been performed is our first London trip.

     One of our prime wills as bilingual program has always been a linguistic inmersion trip and eventually we got it! Thirteen lucky ESO3 students travelled with our teachers Mr Luis Hernández and Mr Ignacio Rodríguez to the British capital city. They left on Tuesday 15th of  May and came back on Saturday, there they enjoyed a (sure) unforgettable adventure. Lots of things can be told about this journey: London Bridge, Buckingham Palace, Green Park, the Museums, Oxford St., the tube, TATE modern, shopping...

     Their experience was even bigger because of Paul, their teacher / guide new friend who really enriched their stay and the evenings at their English families' homes in the lovely neighborhood Ealing. In the mornings, after the home breakfast, they practiced English for three hours by means of dynamic and interesting lessons, which also prepared them for the afternoon visits: London (do we need to say anything else?). Then, back home for dinner and next they even found time to "get lost" in their beautiful town.

     It has been difficult to give them such a chance but we are sure it has been worth. Next year, are you been any of the lucky ones having this experience?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

   

    El pasado jueves 17 de mayo nuestros alumnos de primero de ESO tuvieron la oportunidad de "estrenar" el auditorio Felipe VI de Estepona con el musical teatral "Charlie y la  Fábrica de Chocolate" de la compañía Escenarios Educativos y en inglés.


 


    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is an amazing story most of us already know, by Roald Dahl´s novel or by any of its popular cinema versions, but our ESO1 students have been able to enjoy it by a theatre performance and this experience took place at  a great venue, our brand new Felipe VI. The adventures of Charlie, Willy Wonka and his Oompa Loompas became an educational setting by which our boys and girls attended a play in a foreign language by first time. A really interesting and appealing activity which searches for new forms of learning English and supports their social development and love for culture.
