BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

by Bruce Lee

PROJECT ON OUR STUDY TRIP TO Scotland, United Kingdom (Edinburgh 2017)

From Monday, 3rd April to Sunday, 9th April


Everyday you will write down expressions or vocabulary learned that day.


Monday.- Our flight & first impressions about the family. What is our host family like? What is our room & house like?


Tuesday.- First experiences with the school, public transport and the orientation tour around Edinburgh.


Wednesday.- What are the classes like? Write about the school, the teachers and the entry test. Write about the city of Edinburgh (for example, buses) and write about what you did today, Ask your family about the expression: “Cheers” and their opinion about their place in the world with regard to the UK and the EU. 


Thursday.- Write about your routines, meals at home and packed lunch at the school. Write about the weather we are having. Write about the National Museum of Scotland (what impressed you most?), Greyfriars Cemetery and Grassmarket. Write about all the writers and famous people they come from Edinburgh and that are related with this city.


Friday.- Your free time in Edinburgh & your experience of the classes at the school. Have you learned much? Which skill have you improved the most (speaking, writing, listening or reading)?


Saturday.- Write about our trip to Stirling, the castle and the characters of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. What can you say about the Scottish accent of the people (compare the accent in Edinburgh and in Stirling)? Write about the town, the landscape and your experience in the train.


Sunday.- Write about the last day in Edinburgh, the places you visited and the things you did. For those of you who have participated in our previous study trips, write the differences you have found between them and Scotland. For those of you whose experience in these study trips is the first, write about your expectations and the real experience. Shopping: what have you bought and how much have you spent? Did you like Edinburgh in general? Our flight & journey back home. Best memories. Any souvenirs bought? Would you go back to Edinburgh? Would you repeat the experience?





Excellent news!!!! 

 Last Friday I collected the pounds we had ordered in my bank and, apart from the fact the exchange rate with the pound is really good for us, they didn’t charge me any commission. As an example, we can compare what happened two years ago when we went to Chester and this year:

In 2015 Chester £1  = €1.403
In 2017 Edinburgh £1 = €1.228
So now they give us £81.3 for every €100€, while in 2015 they only gave us £71.28. Summing up, we save almost €200 for every £1,000 we exchange.
