Welcome Preston!

     El pasado martes el grupo de 4ºAB bilingüe dio una especial bienvenida a Preston, nuestro recién llegado auxiliar de conversación americano: una ”rueda de prensa” en la que con simpatía este respondió al aluvión de preguntas por parte del alumnado.

     A continuación dejo extractos de las redacciones donde algunos alumnos como Cedric, Sofía, Phoebe, Verónica y Yihui dejaron plasmado lo más representativo de sus respuestas.

     “The person we interviewed was the Texan conversation assistant, Preston A. Grimes, who came over to help us improve our English for the next nine months”

     “Starting off with his personal life we can officially say he is single, yes ladies, he is single.”

     “Along the interview we discovered he likes to travel around the world. He has visited different American and European countries. He has also visited sixteen of the fifty United States of America. He told us he really likes living in Spain. He came to meet other kind of people and to learn Spanish because he loves to learn different languages, although he studied the grade of History. He wants to visit all the country, especially cities like Bilbao, Gerona, Santander o Cádiz.”

     “His hobbies, obviously, the adventure of knowing new places and cultures. He also likes sports, especially skiing, as well as nature, cinema or soul and jazz music: his favourite singer is Sam Cooke and movie Kubrick´s Dr Strangelove. But what he loves is dance, he dances swing, bachata, salsa, merengue... he even tried to clap flamenco when he was asked if he liked it.”

     “I´d like to add a huge interest in food reflected every time we asked whether he liked the places he had been to, his answers always included `The food was very nice´.His favourite food is kebab.”

     “He let us know lots of interesting things talking not only about himself but also different topics such as religion, politics or even football. He doesn´t know what will be next after his stay with us in May... maybe he settles in Andalucía.”
