Last Friday was a very interesting day in Lockhart Academy. At 18:00, 7 students from the academy and 1 volunteer showed up ready to have fun and use a lot of English. They had signed up for “Death Wears White”, a role game in which the players have to try to guess, among other things, who committed a murder.

The murder happened in a hospital, so we asked the students to come dressed up as members of this hospital (some like doctors, others like nurses, some other like administrators…).

A 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 5 beques fins a final de curs per a gent que estigui a l’atur i vulgui aprendre anglès de la millor manera possible.

Lockhart Academy full Christmas Tree

This last week our little learners dealt with MAGIC!

After some days of hard work and practice, five little students have become real MAGICIANS!

With Winnie the Witch, Enric, Leyre, Patrick, Maria, Víctor and Jana learned how to do a powerful spell. Each one of them built a magic wand to make true some of your wishes, but be careful… THEY CAN GET ANGRY SOMETIMES! Read more

IS IT POSSIBLE TO LEARN ENGLISH WITHOUT BEING BORED? YES IT IS!

Sometimes we think that learning English can be boring, but it doesn’t happen in our academy. Here, our students acquire all the skills through different kind of activities. Some of them have improved their communicative skill, and they have also increased their vocabulary knowledge.

Horse racing is an equestrian sport that has a long history (source: wikipedia). But in Lockhart Academy, it is an interesting and funny game to refresh the vocabulary and to have a good time.

In this quiz, they are in groups of two and three. Every team has a name and a paper horse.

There are 10 points and the first group to get these points, wins the competition.

Basically, they throw the dice and, depending on the number, they must do an action: Read more

Today (holiday for a lot of people) we are sharing one of the stories the Adults A-2 group wrote. Of course, you will also be able to see the pictures that made our students write this story.

It was my very first day with glasses and I had to go to the city because the day before yesterday I had bought a pair of trousers and I wanted to change them. I took the bus and, 15 minutes later, I had arrived at the store.

 

I was about to enter the shop when I noticed a set of footprints next to it. The footprints were enormous! They were the size of a table. They had five huge toes. Based on those footprints, I calculated that the animal had to be, at least, 4 meters tall. I started to follow the footprints.

 

But in that moment something wrong happened. I didn’t know what it was but I started to feel more and more tired… exhausted. I fell asleep and then I don’t remember anything else.

 

Now I’m feeling very well because I was dreaming that I was going to Brazil by plane. If it’s possible, I’d like to fall asleep again as long as I dream about the same story!

We hope you liked the story! Feel free to comment on it!

 

Writing stories collaboratively – 2

Writing stories collaboratively

We start a series of posts where we will be publishing the stories that our students wrote collaboratively with the help of the Story Cubes that we mentioned in the previous post.

Today we are adding an audio file and the image of the four dice that helped the students craft the story.

We hope you like it. Comments are appreciated!
