From 29th February to 4th March, four English teachers, Cristian, Jonathan, Jack and Jordan, who form part of the Home To Home organisation, have been working all week with 4th Primary, 1st and 2nd ESO. The pupils have not been doing English lessons as such, but rather a series of activities and tasks which have been completed with English as the means of communication. Work in the morning has been done in the classroom, while the afternoon sessions have involved taking part in English team games in the playground.
The feedback from the boys has been extremely positive, with most of them saying that they would like to carry on with this type of work all the time! They have had to make the effort to communicate in any way they can with the teachers, by using sign language, gestures, translators, etc., which is exactly what will happen in real life when they are faced with the reality of having to express themselves in a foreign language.
