Movie Time

     Una herramienta de vital importancia a la hora de aprender idiomas puede ser el cine. Hoy en día gracias a la tecnología es facilísimo usar las distintas opciones (idiomas, subtítulos, modos de reproducción....) para conocer distintos aspectos de otras culturas junto a, cómo no, otras lenguas.

     Este momento del curso, entre dos evaluaciones, es un punto ideal para poner en práctica esta actividad. Nuestro alumnado de 4º curso pondrá en práctica la habilidad lingüística del listening viendo fragmentos de películas en lengua original con la ayuda de subtítulos en inglés.  Los films cuyos extractos serán visionados son los mostrados a continuación.

     The week before the Semana Santa break, just after our exams and evaluation sessions, is an appropriate moment to take a relaxing activity. Therefore our students of Year 4 can enjoy scenes taken out from different films in original version. This entertaining activity reinforces their listening skills as they also check that we can find exciting tools to improve a foreign language, activity which can be developed in autonomous ways.

     The scenes from three films will be seen by the three different groups: they have been chosen not only for their vocabulary and structures but also for their plots and topics, which are considered appealing for our students... We will see exciting moments and funny situations which will make them want to watch the whole story. If you have not seen them, maybe you can enjoy them on holidays too.

At the airport

    Nuestro 3ESO bilingüe disfrutó de una más que interesante visita al Aeropuerto de Malaga, donde mediante una ruta guiada en lengua inglesa aprendieron del correcto uso, funcionamiento y curiosidades sobre este elemento clave para el desarrollo del turismo en nuestra comunidad.   

      Just after our Semana Blanca break, on Monday 2nd March, some of our pupils of year 3 (Bilingual group), who had just unpacked their luggage the day before, visited Malaga's Airport.

     Throughout their English-spoken visit they learnt how to use this such an important element for Andalisian tourism as well as they found out the lots of different tasks developed there.

     Let's read some compositions about the trip our students have written.

         "Last Monday, 2nd March, the students from 3rd grade bilingual visited Malaga Airport with our English teachers Mónica and Inmaculada.
In the airport, a friendly worker explained to us how to board our plane and what we must do when we arrive in our destination.
She also showed us the installations and some places, details and facts that I wouldn´t have known if I hadn´t gone there.
In my opinion, it has been a great trip because I have learnt new interesting things and I had a great time with my friends and teachers- in the previous lessons and during the trip".
Maribel Amorós

          "This visit was really good, now when we have to go somewhere by plane we already know the steps to follow before and after getting on and off the plane.
The visit was guided by a bilingual guide. We understood her English very well and she explained stuff to capture the attention of the whole group.
I recommend this experience for other age groups so that they learn more about this place and the steps you have to do on an aerial trip".

José Luis Sampalo

          "In my opinion, the trip to the airport was pretty good. Maybe, they should have shown us more places, for example we could have walked into a plane, got into it, ……or they could have explained more signs….
In spite of this, I don´t have anything to complain about and I recommend doing it in the next few years".
