Writing Competition December 2013

Well, here it is, the very last writing competition of 2013!  All of our students wrote a letter to Father Christmas to ask for their presents and to tell him about all the good things they have done this year.  It was a very difficult decision for Father Christmas to make but as ever there can only be two winners.  He did promise to give all the children all the toys they wrote on their lists though!  So I hope you were all telling the truth about your good deeds!

Cristina and her classmates celebrating her win and relaxing after the exams!
Julio was thrilled to receive his certificate and book
Julio Román Rendón and Cristina Corral Salas were the deserving winners of this month's competition.  They also passed their exams with flying colours so congratulations all round!

Jolly Teachers
In the academic year 2013 - 2014 we are very excited to be introducing the Jolly Phonics system of synthetic phonics in all our classes of very young learners ( 3 to 6 year olds).  The Jolly Phonics method has been successfully teaching children how to read and write in English for many years.  We always expect high standards from our students but next year we will be expecting even more.
All the teachers and administration staff at Tenidiomas have undergone jolly training - here we are with our certificates.
Check out these links if you would like to find out more about the Jolly method

Feria Writing Competition 2013

We had all the fun of the fair in this month's competition with our feria theme.  Claudia Castro Corrales is the winner of our 7 -11 year olds with her beautiful drawings of the casetas and people dancing.  her favourite thing about the feria is hotdogs!  Ana Navarro Diosdado produced a marvellous letter telling her penpal all about the feria - Ana's favourite thing about feria is the funfair.  What a shame that all the fun of feria is over for another year - although you can come and see the displays of our students' work if you are missing it already.

Dalia and her proud students congratulate their classmate!

Dalia shows her beaming smile as her students have won both categories this month!
