We. Are. Back.

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2020/2021 school year!

There’s no doubt that the first half of 2020 has been a tad rocky, so to speak, but at ES we have started this school year stronger than ever. We couldn’t be more proud of our teachers and administrative staff for all the hard work they’re putting in and, most importantly, we couldn’t be more proud of our students, who have adapted to this “new normal” showing not only responsiblity, but also the same eagerness to learn that motivates us to keep going every year. For all of this, and much more not included in this text:

Thank you

In this post, we are going to sumarise all the changes we’ve undergone over the past months so that we could go back to class in the safest possible way. Take a look at the following Q&A:

What are the first changes I’ll notice when I go to ES?

One of the most noticeable changes is that, when you buzz, the street door opens automatically to avoid touching surfaces. When you leave, there’s a pad with a sensor in the hall: simple swipe your hand close to it (without touching it) and the door will open. 🙂

The second change you’ll notice is that, since the summer, both doors at ES are opened and the corridor is now one way. This means that, while you will still enter the school through the usual door, you’ll need to follow the arrows on the floor to leave through our (new) “exit door”.

Is there any procedure to be followed before we go to our class?

Indeed, there is. We’ve changed our London mat for a new one that will allow you to clean a disinfect your shoes and, once in the reception, you’ll have your temperture checked and you’ll need to use hand-sanitising gel.

Are the classrooms different?

Yes. We have reduced the number of students and placed transparent pannels in between each one of them, as well as the teacher, so that you can have your lesson with the most safety. Also, ventilation is really important so we have one of the windows in the class slightly open and, when possible, the door will stay open as well.

Note that, as the number of students per class has been reduced, we have limited spots and some times are already fully booked so, if you want to learn with one of the best schools you possibly can, don’t take too long in popping by!

Our new classrooms.

Can I feel safe at ES?

We have done, and keep doing, everything in our hands to make you feel that way. The classrooms are disinfected in between classes and we have created closed groups to reduce the number of people you’re in contact with. We feel safe at ES, and hope you do too. 😀

Is there any alternative to traditional face to face lessons?

Yes, there is. This year we are also offering the possibility of attending the lessons online, whether they are in a group or private one-to-one classes. Give us a call or send us an email for more information! We’ll be happy to talk to you!

Are you ready?

A World of Fun!

Hello everybody!

I hope all of you are well and reading us from the safety of your home! 🙂

As you can see, this is not the post that was due today (the last part of the interview and job hunting series). This is because, due to the current health emergency in our country, we have decided to run a series of posts that help our students to keep learning English even though we can’t go back to our school yet 😦 . Focusing on a different range of levels in each post, we will provide you with some ideas and tell you about free resources you can check and use to review what we have learnt to keep practising your English skills.

So, let’s get started, shall we? Scroll down!

Today we’re going to dedicate the post to our kiddies! We are so proud of them for staying home all these days that we think they need to play a little now! How about some games in English to practise vocabulary?

Today we’re going to tell you about an amazing app that you can download both on Android and iOs and that will entertain your kids for hours while reviewing vocabulary and learning new words in English. It’s called “Word Fun World”. Press here to go to the website with the info to download the App.

The app is really intuitive and 100% kid-friendly, of course. The first time you open it you’ll see an island with different areas, each one with a different vocabulary focus:

  • Sports and Leisure
  • Animals
  • Family and friends
  • Home
  • School
  • Body and health
  • Food and drink
  • Time
  • World around us
  • Work
  • Clothes and colours
  • Places and transport

The first games of each section start at Pre-A1 (Starters) level but every time you successfully pass a round, new words are added to the game and the difficulty increases up to A2 level (Flyers and KEY). It is, therefore, a perfect app for all levels to review the vocabulary your children have learnt so far and to help them reinforce and gain new skills, such as identifying letters and sounds or learning how some words are written.

We’re looking forward to seeing our kiddies again and having fun with them in the school but, until then, keep practising!

See you in our next post with more ideas to keep your English up! Until then, #stayathome #staysafe
