Hello, nice to meet you!


Welcome 6th year students! 



This is your last year at secondary school and here we are starting our English classes. 


Let me introduce myself. I'm from La Plata and I've got a twin sister. She's a teacher of Art and she can speak English, too.
Teaching is my passion but I love learning, too. I have always loved reading and my favourite short story is called The Gift of the Magi, by O'Henry, an American writer who was born in the late 19th century. There are some film versions and the last one was in 2010. 


I like singing and listening to music. One of my favourite singers is Sarah Brightman, from Britain. She sings opera but with a unique style, with a fusion of opera, classical and pop music. I saw her in a concert live at Luna Park in 2009. She was great! 


This is a picture of her last album, called Gala. She has just released it this year and it is a collection of some of her most famous songs.

One of my favourite films is The Lake House, with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves and the Argentinian Alejandro Agresti was the director. It's not a typical story. That is what makes it interesting. Here you can watch the film trailer: 




      What about you? 

   What do you like doing in your free time?
   What are you going to do when you finish secondary school?

You can also write on different topics you like, for example, music, films, sports, books, pets, hobbies, famous people, etc. 

Post a photo of something you like or of somebody you admire, for example, an actor or actress, a sportsperson, a writer, etc., and comment about them.

    1. Hi Catalina! 😊
      Not now, but I used to do roller-skating, it's my favourite sport. Now I love going for walks in our beautiful wood and I do pilates twice a week.

    1. Hi Florencia! Do you mean at University? Yes and No. I also graduated as a Public Translator at U.N.L.P. Then I studied Neurolinguistic Programming oriented to Education and became a Master Practitioner of NLP, which was a fascinating course for me. And last but not least, I did postgraduate studies and graduated as a Specialist in Education and ICT here, a course of studies by the National Ministry of Education.

    1. Because I love language and when I was six, I saw an English actor called Roger Moore, in a TV series called 'The Saint'. I noticed he moved his mouth but the original words weren't in Spanish. When I asked mum what language he spoke and mum said, English, I wanted to learn that language from that moment on.
