News at Ten
Welcome to the 2009 -2010 academic year at tenidiomas….
A new academic year
We hope all our students had a wonderful summer and that you are all refreshed and ready to start a new, stimulating year learning English.
We have a few changes this year. Children’s classes have been reorganised and are now 60 minutes rather than 90. This offers you more choice and flexibility in you classes.
Sadly, Nick and Tara are not with us this year but please extend a warm welcome to our new teacher, Rory Cummings.
This year, as ever, our focus is on delivering the best quality language training possible. We aim to activate your language and give you the confidence and the skills to take your English to the highest levels possible!
October marks the return of our much-loved writing competition. The age groups are 7- 11 and 12-16. Make sure you check out the topics each month so that you are in with a chance of winning one of our spectacular prizes.
If you feel you need extra practice or consolidation of your lessons, look no further than our multimedia centre. We have a range of CD-ROMs to suit your level. Talk to your teacher or Sofia to find the extra material that is perfect for you.
If working at a computer isn’t for you, then remember we have an array of English films with workbooks. You can improve your listening comprehension in the comfort of your own home and at a time that suits you.
Additionally, we have the popular magazine ‘Speak up’ and accompanying audio. This collection features articles on current affairs and culture and contains stimulating comprehension exercises.
For higher levels we have a variety of English language novels for your enjoyment. We highly recommend you take full advantages of the extra resources we have for you at TENIDIOMAS. Remember all our multimedia materials are FREE to students who are enrolled on one of our courses!
This year YOU are invited to participate in our blog! Send us your poems, stories, letters, reviews and photos. Let the school community share and learn with you! Send your entries to Rachel@tenidiomas.com
Cambridge exam practice
Last year our weekly exam practice sessions were a huge success. Students felt that the extra preparation really helped them to get through the exam. This year our sessions will begin in October. Every Monday at 7pm you will sit one of the papers and get feedback on your progress. Remember, places are limited, so book in advance.
3 Month FCE intensive
This new intensive course has been specially designed for students who will sit the December 2009 FCE exam. It is a specialised course which will focus on all parts of the exam in a dynamic ‘fast track’ way. Coupled with the weekly exam practice sessions, it offers the perfect solution to students who are looking for an active and effective system for FCE success.
The course includes tuition and the FCE fee. Please see Sofia for more details
