The Franklin’s Tale: `Three Promises´

Theatre is an excellent way of practicing pronunciation in a foreign language. It also helps to personal development and encourages social relationships within the school community.

This school year, we are going to give it a try! Students from 1st ESO PEV will be actors and actresses. My students from Practical English(1st Year of Bachillerato)  will be the narrators. We will see what happens!

Here you can find the audio of the tale to practice your role: Three Promises

Antes de que Salga el Sol

New York

Last Monday, I asked my students to prepare an oral presentation, talking about a likely destination for a school trip. The aim was persuading their classmates that theirs was their best option.

What do you think?

Marina and Ana Peydró prepared this wonderful powerPoint on New York. Well done! girls.


This year  our students from 4th ESO are going to read The Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer.

Last summer I attended a course for English teachers in Canterbury. Here is a video to show my students what Canterbury is like.

The Lottery Ticket


Here’s a listening  activity . First, students have to look at the pictures, trying to put them in order. Then they listen to the story and check their predictions.

This photocopy TheLotteryTicket was coloured by Mónica. Nice, isn’t it?

Do you want to try to guess the order of the pictures?

It would be nice if this story happened to you…
