Today we have received the visit of an American girl: Lauren Denslow. She is from Seattle, Washington, in the northwest of the USA. She is going to stay in Coruña for a whole year because she is the conversation auxiliary in Salvador de Madariaga Secondary School. She talked to us about the autumn and about the two most famous festivals in this time of the year: Halloween and Thankgiving Day. We all had a great time: we learned new words, we said three magic spells, we peeled an apple to guess the name of our true love, we learned some traditions but, above all, we enjoyed her visit a lot.
Thank you for your kindness, Lauren! And come again another day, please!

Wow! Just four weeks since we started school and it seems ages! After a few days of adaptation, now we are working very hard. These last days we were talking about our resolutions for this new school year, we were also learning some new vocabulary related to school materials, school places and school subjects. And talking about this, what´s your favourite subject? English, of course! That´s why you are all going to get good marks!
School is not so boring as you may think. It´s got negative things such as exams, homework, teachers, ..., but there are many positive ones too: the new things we learn everyday, our friends, the break, the outings, ... In fact, we can say that school is a wonderful world! Just like Sam Cooke explains in this fantastic song: "Wonderful world"
