On Saturday these four students among more than 500 students from all over Tarragona’s province had to make difficult written tasks containing a variety of activities on vocabulary, reading and writing.

Last January 1st BAT students participated in one of the most attractive language programs we offer: London and British Culture Week.

This is our intensive English program for Batxillerat students. They stay at a beautiful residence in Broadstairs (Kent) in half board accommodation.  They boys visit the town and they have specific classes on Charles Dickens. The English writer was born there the students have the possibility of visiting his summer residence.

In London, the students have the opportunity of visiting many places of interest, helping them learn about English culture as they learn the language. A native group of guides show them the city, including a selection of well planned and interesting tours: Buckingham Palace, St.James’s Park , Big Ben, Houses of parliament, Westminster Abbey , obviously, two of the most important museums: The Natrional Gallery and the British Museum.

Another highlight of this program is the trip to Canterbury. After visiting the city and its main landmarks, the boys visit the famous King’s School. They attend at English classes and they talk with English students and share a language project in English and Spanish.

Oral English Class: the key to success

speakinturo

Tim Bowring is our English teacher for the oral English classes. All our students in Turó, from 1st Primary to 2nd Batxillart,  have got oral English class. The speaking groups are relative small (4 – 5 boys). In the speaking classes, Tim motivates our students and teaches them oral skills which will improve  their speaking ability and  their active participation in the class as well. In addition, these oral classes help our students practice for the Cambridge exams.
