Has English ever been useful for you? Foreign languages are taught in most of the schools, because of that, many children are able to communicate in other languages. English can be useful in many aspects of your life, such as travelling or getting a job.
I love English, and besides, I think it is great to learn a language that is spoken all over the world and it’s really important when you visit foreign countries. When I received the First Communion I asked for a trip abroad to practise English, so went to Brussels. Although Belgium isn’t an English-speaking country, I could communicate with everyone there: at the mall, at the hotel and in restaurants. I had lots of fun! Speaking English was fantastic since I speak neither French nor Dutch.
My experience using English to interact with other people, and not only to do exercises in the workbooks, has encouraged me to continue learning this lovely language. After this trip I continued travelling to other cities, Istanbul and Munich, they were also great!
This was my experience using English, what about yours?

Hello everyone, I want to recommend you the book in English ‘Harry Potter and the half-blood prince’ by J.K Rowling.
Of all the English books I have read I think this is the most interesting of all.
It is a novel book of 768 pages about the sixth story of Harry Potter. It has a lot of mystery.
It contains a lot of different vocabulary so you will learn a lot of English. The most interesting part of the book is the end, so it has you hooked until you end reading it.
It is about Harry Potter, who finds a potion book of the half-blood prince with invented spells (that really functioned) and a lot of new things. When Dumbledore dies because Snape kills him, Harry tries to hurt him with a spell of the half-blood prince and he realizes Snape was the owner of the book.
I recommend it to people who want to learn English and like Harry Potter books.

This entry is to show you that English is very important for your life.
Firstly, English is important because if you go to a city where people only speak English, you cannot communicate with them if you don´t speak it. For example, if you go to France and don´t know how to speak French, you can speak English with them and they will do the same with you.
Furthermore, English is a language that you must learn at school and by yourself, because it is mandatory.
Also, my experience to be the first bilingual class of Primary in our school is that I have learnt more English than the rest of the school and I feel very excited. I am not afraid of learning less Spanish because I was born in Spain and I can always learn later.

DO YOU ALSO THINK THAT ENGLISH IS IMPORTANT?

Firstly, I say to you how important it is to learn ENGLISH, because ENGLISH is the most used language in all the world.
I recommend you to follow the next points to learn it:
- You should find the words you don’t know in a good dictionary, an example in internet is http://www.wordreference.com/ or others translators like “El Mundo” or “Google”.
- I practice in the school with a native teacher the conversation to improve my level of spoken English. Also, I learn how to speak by talking to my classmates. If you don’t go to school, there are groups of conversation in internet, some without paying and others in which you must pay.
- I recommend to read some news in a newspaper or in a website.
- I also learn by reading books. The last book I read was The adventures of Tom Sawyer It’s an interesting action book for young students.
WELCOME TO THE WAY OF LEARNING ENGLISH

For me, learning English is important because it is a language that is now required in all places and knowing English is sure to help me get a job when I am older because it is like a universal language because it is spoken everywhere.
English has a series of tests that determine your level of this language.
I go to a bilingual school and I study many subjects in English and although my level is not very good, I am improving, I have been learning English since I was three years old and the truth is that English is very entertaining, fun and not as difficult as others. I recommend it.

During our assistant teacher Sarah’s class, we’ve been inventing some towns. She showed us her example and after that we started working in groups. We had to tell five facts about it and ten rules (using modal verbs). Then we talked about it to our classmates and voted for our favourite town, but all of them were fantastic and it would be very fun to live in any of them. It has been a really exciting activity and we have also improved our use of modal verbs.
These are some of them:
Hemos estado inventando ciudades en la clase con Sarah, nuestra auxiliar de conversación. Ella nos enseñó un ejemplo y después nos pusimos a trabajar en equipos. Teníamos que poner cinco datos importantes y diez reglas utilizando “modal verbs“. Después hicimos una presentación a nuestros compañeros y votamos por nuestra favorita. Todas eran geniales, sería muy divertido vivir en cualquiera de ellas. Ha sido una actividad muy emocionante y hemos podido mejorar el uso de los “modal verbs“.
