Escribir redacciones y textos en general siempre se ha considerado una tarea aburrida, excepto cuando dejamos la imaginación de nuestros alumnos volar. La tarea consistía en inventarse una prenda de ropa en equipo e individualmente crear un anuncio para un periódico. ¿El resultado? Mejor vedlo por vosotros mismos. Álvaro y Hugo, dos de los alumnos de la profe Espe en nuestra academia en Sanlúcar la Mayor, los Pitufos, basándose en una idea que pensaron en común han sido capaces de idear estos “zapatos impresionantes”. ¿Qué os parecen? ¿Os los compraríais? ¡Dejadnos un comentario y opinad!
Writing tasks are usually the least favourite among students in general… except when imagination comes into play! The task was simple: in pairs, our students had to invent a piece of clothing with exceptional properties, then, individually, they had to prepare an advertisement for a newspaper trying to sell their inventions. Álvaro and Hugo, two of teacher Espe’s students in our Sanlúcar la Mayor-Los Pitufos location, came up with these amazing shoes. What was the result? Better check it out yourselves!

A few months ago, we organized a flash fiction contest for our students. We were extremely impressed the originality and creativity on display in the submissions. We’d like to revisit these micro-stories, now compiled in this concise British School Flash Fiction e-magazine.
We encourage all of our students to continue exploring the English language in new and exciting ways.

Summer vacation has finally arrived, and if you’re lucky, you’re probably going to have a bit of free time on your hands. One of the best ways to relax and practice your English at the same time is to get into a great book! While it might seem difficult to find recommendations that are appropriate for English students, you can actually find a lot of great lists online.
The list we’d like to highlight here is by the publishing house Pearson. There are some fantastic ideas books that are, first and foremost, fun and interesting to read, and which are also the appropriate level of difficulty for English students (many of the books are in fact versions that have been specifically adapted for foreign readers of the language): http://eltlearningjourneys.com/2016/06/15/top-20-books-for-learning-english-during-the-summertime/.
So, enjoy your summer holiday, have lots of fun, and don’t forget to read a great book in English!
As English teachers, there are some common doubts that our students ask us about all the time. One of these is the question of “people” vs. “persons”. Spanish-speaking students often mistakenly use the word “persons” instead of the irregular plural “people”, and inevitably one of their classmates will shout out: “That word doesn’t exist!” While it’s true that the student probably made an error, it’s also true that “persons” is actually a correct plural form for “people”, although in a different context.
“People?” “Persons?” When should we use one or the other? Get rid of all your doubts with this
