ROMEO & JULIET

Last Friday our 4th ESO students went to the theatre to see Shakepeare's famous play Romeo & Juliet. Students had a great time while watching this awe-inspiring tragedy that captivated the teenage audience from the very start as it was a fresh adaptation of the classic.

LET'S PLAY THEATER IN THE PRIMARY SCHOOL


In order to motivate our future students in the primary school, we are doing our own "tour" among the primary schools in our city.











Our particular theater group comprises 15 students of the 2nd class of ESO, and we play different funny sketches in English. So we are having fun and learning English at the same time!









And all this would'nt be possible without our director and English teacher, Ester Boldú.
Thank you, Ester!!!

LANGUAGE TRIP 1st BATXILLERAT (4): OUR LAST DAY IN GALWAY


 In our last day in Galway, we learned some more things about this nice city, thanks to a guided historical tour through its most significant places: Eyre Square, Latin Quarter, Spanish Arch, the river Corib, and Salthill.








 We also discovered the simbology of the Claddagh Rings, and the story told around them.
 A statue of Oscar Wilde sitting in a bank in the Shop Street brought us to remember that Ireland is a country of poets and writers, like Samuel Beckett or James Joyce, among many others.










By visiting the river, the docks, and the Spanish Arch, we learned how important was the trade with Spanish and Italian ships for the Irish economy during de 14th and 15th century.




























 
 Finally, we realized that music is everywhere in Ireland, in every single corner.


The Irish: very cheerful and friendly people!

LANGUAGE TRIP 1st BATXILLERAT (3): THE CLIFFS OF MOHER

Today we visited the stunning Cliffs of Moher, where some famous films have been shot like Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince or Ryans Daughter.







Believe it or not, we were lucky to have some patches of sun, although the wind was blowing really hard.












We marvelled at the lovely Irish landscape, there and during the trip: cottages, sheep, pasture lands, castles, towers, the Atlantic coastline, the little harbours,...










The Cliffs stand 214 m above the sea level and stretch for 8 kilometres along the Atlantic. From there, we could see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay.

We are already getting used to the Irish way of life: the lovely weather - rain, wind and cold -, the early eating times -dinner at 6 pm! - , the wild nightlife -bedtime at 10!

LANGUAGE TRIP 1st BATXILLERAT (1): OUR FIRST DAY IN IRELAND

We arrived this morning at 12 at Dublin airport with the students of 1st of Batxillerat. We had a very interesting walking tour of Dublin with our friendly guide Denny. He told us lots of different stories about some of the most important icons of the capital city, like the story of Molly Malone, the superstition behind the belltower of Trinity College, the meaning of Ha' Penny Bridge, the importance of the historical character O'Connell and many more.
In the afternoon, we left for Galway, where our host families were expecting us.
