Welcome to our school year 2020-2021

hi teamWelcome to our new school year 2020-2021!

Hope you all had a nice break. Life is very different from what we were used to and our last term of the school year 2019-2020 finished without the traditional celebrations, multicultural dinner, paella rally…

I am so pleased with how everyone adapted to lessons online back in March and how students are asking for more online provision that suits them at any location.

This summer new activities were on offer. Alessandra took us on a tour of Italy, with culture, history and real Italian cooking.

With Elena a few “peregrinos” did the camino challenge where walks and cultural challenges were added weekly. The feedback has been fantastic, therefore we are looking into our next cultural activities. Backstage tutors are preparing cultural activities to add to our weekly provision.

The new normal has brought a new dimension to our little language centre and our students are learning languages and culture as well as technology. I know, sometimes it is a very challenging combination but we are here to learn together and to support each other at good times and bad.

This Autumn will be challenging as the days will draw in and everyone will stay at home as much as possible but tutors as much as students will be looking forward to our weekly meeting.

If you have not booked, please follow the link to do it. If you have done it, thank you very much.

We are offering new courses for total beginners… Do you know anyone interested? Please pass our contact around!

any questions

We will contact you next week confirming your course, etc….

Please if you have any queries let me know,

Thanks you and see you soon,

Elena

Multilingual carols workshop

Singing is a great way to learn a language and to meet others.


Working with María Fernandez Toro was such a joy and enrichment for everyone. Maria did a fantastic job with 28 of us and we sung in French, Italian, German, Spanish and English. Some of us were monolingual and very amateur singers, but we all were willing to try new things and the group worked very well.

Maria explained the meaning of the words and gave us directions about how to make sounds in different languages. So by the end of the two days workshop we felt far more confortable about singing in a different language. Please find few of our multilingual songs at our you tube channel.
