Last Thursday, 14 professors from various European nationalities (Italians, Danes, Belgians, Bulgarians and Germans…) came to visit us in class.
Were an hour with us looking at how are our art in English clases.
We had a good time and tried to do our best for them!
Hello! I’m Peter Alaimo, the English language teaching assistant at IES Llanera. I’m from the beautiful and almost always sunny California! It has been quite a change coming from the United States to Spain, but I think I have adapted well. Of course, the first thing I’ve noticed that is different from where I’m from us the climate. I hear many people complain about the rain and how it would be great to live in California where it’s always sunny, but I’m very happy here. I think the rain is refreshing. Right now I live in Oviedo, and am having lots of fun exploring the city and meeting the people from Asturias and learning about the culture here. At IES Llanera I’m having a wonderful time working with the students. Apart from learning English, we have done lots of fun projects to show that English is much more than just a class students must take. I try to communicate to them that in English you can tell jokes, make friends, and have a lot of fun. From what I see, the students are reacting very positively! I hope that things continue going well and that I continue to see these wonderful students speak more and more English!
