Hola!

Como cada año, Lockhart Academy ha celebrado su tradicional cena de Navidad, con alumnos adultos y profesores/as.

Este año, la cena ha sido en el Palau del Baró. Pero antes de que os expliquemos más cosas sobre la cena, permitidnos que os digamos cosas que pasaron antes de la cena.

Una vez conseguimos que todos los asistentes (15) rellenasen el formulario de qué querrían para cenar, les mandamos los primeros Whatsapps para preparar la temática de la noche:

Missions

También les enviamos un Whatsapp con el nombre de un actor o el nombre de una película. Dentro de ese mensaje también se les informaba que no podían decir el nombre de su película/actor, nombre de personajes… Entre los actores teníamos por ejemplo a Matt Damon, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rowan Atkinson o Steve Carrell. Entre las películas relacionadas con esos actores teníamos, entre otras, The Bourne Identity, True Lies, Johnny English, Get Smart

Codename

La noche de la cena, unos 5 minutos antes de la hora de quedada, los asistentes recibieron un último mensaje de Whatsapp con sus 2 misiones para esa noche: intentar encontrar su contacto (la película en la que habían actuado o el actor principal de su película) e intentar descubrir cuáles eran los nombres en clave del resto de asistentes a la cena (intentando que el menor número posible adivinase el suyo).

Hellooooooooo hello!!

Here we are again!! Yeaaaah!! A new course started some time ago. Kids are having fun with us, learning new vocabulary, acquiring useful expressions, doing hand-made activities and so on!

But, let me tell you who I am…

I’m Elisabet!! The new teacher in Lockhart Academy! I am an extremely active girl. I never stop doing things: working, preparing activities, studying, watching videos that give me ideas for creating awesome crafts,…

You might be thinking… “oh! What do you like to do in your spare time?”

Wowww…good question!! Read more

Hello world!

My name is Jordi and I’m the new teacher at Lockhart Academy. I’m studying my last year of Publicity and Public Relations at the URV and I have lived and studied in Denmark for a few months in an Erasmus program. Now I am working as a teacher in La Vitxeta school with two groups of 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders.

I was born in Barcelona 21 years ago. I like cycling, watching TV series —even though I don’t have time to do it!—, listening to good music and low-cost traveling around the world. I’m also a casteller with the human tower group Colla Jove Xiquets de Tarragona!

I hope we’ll have a good time this semester! See you around!

Hello everybody!

My name is Cristina Rodríguez and I work as a teacher in l’Arrabassada School with 5th, 2nd and P4 graders. I’ve studied at URV to become and English teacher and I finished my degree last year. I’m 22 years old and I’m from el Vendrell. I’ve thought a lot about what I can say about me in this presentation and I think that the most important thing that you should know is that I’m very excited about working in Lockhart Academy and sharing moments with my workmates and my pupils in l’Arrabassada School. I’ve been working with children since I was 16 (well, I really started when I was 7 and my sister was born! I was always teaching her new things!).

I love dancing, traveling, taking photos and I love “human towers” too (castells). I’m very involved in it because I’m part of the “canalla’s team” in El Vendrell. We try to teach them how to climb up in a human tower but the most important thing that we want to show them is that we must be a team and trust each other, to meet our common goals.

As you know, I have an e-mail address where you can write me every time you want!

I hope your children enjoy a lot learning English with me!

My best,

Cristina

My name is Monica and maybe some of you know me because I taught in La Vitxeta last year. Now, I’m teaching Pre-primary students in La Vitxeta and ESO students from the Institut Pont del Diable in Sant Salvador.

 

I love animals, reading, dancing and learning a lot. I think that it is very important to open our minds and learn with everything around us: old people, children, other cultures, nature… Everybody and every thing can teach us something.

I hope all the students (the youngest and the oldest ones) have a nice time and enjoy our classes!

 

Ayer fue un día memorable para Lockhart Academy. Aparte de tener la última clase del año con algunos de los grupos y el festival de Navidad en la Escola La Vitxeta (pronto publicaremos un post al respecto), tuvimos nuestra tradicional cena de fiestas con el alumnado adulto y los y las profes de la academia.

Empezamos la noche a las 20 horas en la puerta de la academia. De ahí, el grupo más madrugador se dirigió a la primera parada: el Kunan. Allí, entre otras cosas, hicimos una especie de Pub Quiz sobre Navidad, que adaptamos de esta entrada de blog. Nos lo pasamos muy bien, utilizamos mucho inglés y aprendimos muchas cosas interesantes sobre las fiestas.

Hello. My name is Xavi and I’m a new teacher in Lockhart Academy. Fist of all I want to apologise for introducing myself a bit late, but I have had some Internet problems.

I have a degree in Pedagogy, and a Master in Educational Guidance. I have studied English since I was a child. I have a very long way to go as a teacher and as a person, but I think that the children can help me to improve, in the same way that I can help them.

One month ago I started teaching English to 4rth, 5th and 6th grade in “Escola La Vitxeta”, in Reus. I am teaching two groups of children full of energy. I hope that we enjoy learning English together with a lot of funny and educational activities. Read more

Arriba Nadal i volem tornar a fer una iniciativa que ens va agradar molt l’any passat:

Lockhart Academy som conscients què hi ha molta gent passant uns moments difícils. Sabem que són molts els que voldrien continuar formant-se però la situació económica actual no els hi permet. Coneixem famílies que voldríen que els seus fills i filles anessin a classes d’anglès per poder tenir un futur millor però malauradament no s’ho poden permetre.

Volem aprofitar aquestes dates per donar un petit cop de mà a tota aquesta gent. Volem oferir 6 beques fins a final de curs per a gent que estigui a l’atur i vulgui aprendre anglès de la millor manera possible.

Qui pot participar en aquest sorteig? Qualsevol persona que estigui a l’atur i que no sigui alumne/a de Lockhart Academy en aquest moment.

Com es repartiran les 6 beques?

Repartirem una beca per cada grup que tenim a l’acadèmia:

– Una beca per a un nen/a de tercer o quart de primària els dilluns i dimecres de 18 a 19:30 hores

– Una beca per a un nen/a de cinqué o sisé de primària els dilluns i dimecres de 18 a 19:30 hores

– Una beca per a un adult de nivell inicial (A2 — 2n de la EOI) els dimarts i dijous de 18 a 19:30 hores

– Una beca per a un adult de nivell intermig (B1 — 3r de la EOI) els dimarts i dijous de 20 a 21:30 hores

– Una beca per a un adult de nivell intermig-alt (B2- — 5é de la EOI) els dijous de 08:00 a 11 hores

– Una beca per a un adult de nivell alt (B2+ ó C1- — 5è de la EOI) els dimecres de 18 a 21 hores

Com es pot participar al sorteig? Hi ha dues opcions:
