Good morning! Saturday 22nd of July was the day of PortAventura and Costa Caribe and the students didn’t have English classes! We woke up at quarter past seven and had a quick breakfast before going back to the room to pack everything. Some students chose not to go to PortAventura or Costa Caribe, perhaps because they had been before, they stayed in the house and played games with the monitors. These students woke up at half past eight. We arrived at the Park all together and divided in three groups. One was going to Costa Caribe and two were going…

In Vallclara’s dining room we sit with a monitor and teacher and only speak in English, we ask every question in English: “Can I have some water please?” “How were English classes today?”. After the first class, we had a break where we learnt about the English Challenge. Alongside the Olympics competition, the teams compete by doing different English written activities in their free time. The daily…
