Grease is the word...

     Increíble musical el que nuestros alumnos de 4ºB nos ofrecieron como regalo navideño anticipado el pasado miércoles 21, frente a todo el centro, profesores y alumnado. Vivimos una representación excelente del clásico del cine Grease.

     I.E.S. Profesor Tomás Hormigo became Dani and Barbara's... sorry! Our school became Danny and Sandy's American high-school for an hour, and we brought back their 1958 romance.

     Monica's students dare to make us forget the great Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet , which they played last year, by performing an excellent version of the 1978 musical movie GREASE with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as protagonists. Daniel and Barbara relived this American romance with an A+. We were astonished as well by the rest of the cast's performance whose acting, dances and songs took us back to such an exciting setting.

     Now we cannot stop wondering what this company's next success.

*As soon as we have the video we will be able to watch it here.

      Como cada año para esta fecha, esta actividad organizada por el departamento de inglés llevó a ver una película en versión original a más de doscientos alumnos de nuestro centro. Este año fue el turno para nueva entrega de la franquicia Star Wars.

      Two hundred and twenty students enjoyed the O.V. Cinema activity, which we have been developing for the last five years.

     This time, this "Christmas" activity took place in La Cañada shopping centre Cinemas, Marbella, on Monday 19th, and we watched a movie in its original version, English language, helped by Spanish subtitles; in our opinion one of the most interesting exercises for learning a language, that any one can try at home, but which gets more appealing when it is during school hours and with free popcorn.

     The film chosen this time was the new Star Wars feature, Rogue One: a far-away-galaxy spin-off (parallel story plot detached from the main saga) whose premiere was on Friday, maybe the prime blockbuster for this Christmas season.

     You know... may the force be with you!

English Breakfast 2016


      Nothing like an English breakfast to start a new day... it´s December and it is getting harder and harder to work, looking forward to our Christmas holidays, so as every year some of our groups prepare their English breakfast: not only bacon and eggs but also cookies, muffins and even hot chocolate.

     Thanks Mónica and our 4ºA students for  making our Thursday easier!

Three, two... Rogue One!

        Next Monday (19th December) we all move to La Cañada to watch the original language version of the new Star Wars adventure, Rogue One.

        You´ll have news and...  

                   may the force be with you!!!
