This academic year we are participating in many projects and experiences. It is been a very intensive year with many international activities on the go.
In the first trimestre we started our 13th German 3rd CSE exchange with students from KGS Kirchweyhe, Realschule Achim and Gymnasium Am Markt, near Bremen. In all the Secondary stages we started a new subject called Learning Services Workshop (Taller d’Aprenentatge de Servei) from which we began a new international project online on the eTwinning European platform. This project is based on the Mediterranean diet and it is focused on food and traditions from different Mediterranean cultures. Students and teachers from Italy, Greece, Portugal, Croatia and Catalonia are participating in creating products (by using web tools, preparing recipes and recording videos), developing ideas and sharing them on the platform. At all English lessons from 1st to 4th we started different projects and mini-projects such as the movie club, consisted of the viewing of many films and their follow-up activities, or many new interactive activities.
In the second trimestre, all the students from 1st CSE have started a new penpal project with the Isidore Newton School from New Orleans, United States. Students from 2nd and 3rd CSE are receiving the visit of their German partners, from Bremen and Berlin, and the students from 4th CSE have taken A2 level English test. We have also had the return of Nanet Minto, our speaking helper and conversational assistant, in all the levels of school.
In the third trimestre, the 2nd CSE students of German and French will travel to Berlin and Paris (in May), we keep working on our eTwinning, our penpal project and in June the students of 4th CSE will travel to England or Ireland in a final trip.
Summing up, 4 international exchanges with Germany and France, 1 penpal project with United States, 1 eTwinning project with Italy, Portugal, Greece, Croatia and Catalonia, 1 study visit to England, 1 conversational assistant, more than 20 new projects and mini-projects in English lessons, hundreds of learning foreign languages and intercultural experiences, and lots of living together intercultural moments and encounters.
