400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's Death

THIS IS THE BIOGRAPHY FROM THE PUBLISHER THAT STUDENTS FROM ESO2 SUMMARIZED TO CELEBRATE SHAKESPEARE'S DEATH ( 400th ANNIVERSARY )




William Shakespeare was born in 1564 in Stratford-Upon-Avon, England. His father sold wool and made gloves and, according to records, his mother came from a wealthy family.


Shakespeare went to the local Grammar School but he didn't have a university degree.



William Shakespeare became famous for writing many plays, including Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet.
 However, he began his career in the theatre as an actor. Unfortunately, he wasn't a very good actor so he began writing instead. Shakespeare wrote poetry as well as plays.

The theatres were closed in London from 1592 to 1594 due to the Plague and there wasn't anything for Shakespeare to do, so he spent this time writing two poems which helped him become well-known as a writer.



By 1603, there were many popular theatres, like The Globe, in London. William Shakespeare owned a company: "The King's Men". They performed in the best theatres in the country.

William Shakespeare wrote over a million words in his lifetime. In fact, he could write two new plays every year. The audiences loved them and by the time he died, in 1616, Shakespeare was a very rich and famous man.

Johan Cruyff: the death of a myth

Johan Cruyff has died on a Good Thursday and part of my childhood has gone with him as he was the first footballer I admired when I was a child. According to my mother, she gave me as a present for my sixth birthday the F.C. Barcelona shirt with the "9" on its back because of my interest on the Dutch forward.


He was voted the best European soccer player of the twentieth century (and the second best worldplayer). He started his career with AJAX Amsterdam and led them to 4 European finals of which 3 were won (1971/1972/1973). In 1973 Cruyff joined Barcelona (for a the then record-fee of 6 million guilders), He became a very popular player.


With the Dutch National Team Cruyff became the inventor of Total Football in 1974. Even when they lost the final against the Germans, he was named the best player in the championship before moving to F.C. Barcelona. Before retiring he played soccer in the U.S.A. for the Washington Diplomats. He played 48 games for the Dutch National team, and scored 33 goals between 1966 and 1977.


Then, he started his career as a coach with his first team: Ayax. He coached them for a few years and won the European cup winners cup. Then, he followed his same way as a player and went to Barcelona to become the revolutionary coach of F.C. Barcelona. He gave the first European Champions League for the Catalonian team and four Spanish leagues.

30-12-1990 : A historical day for Osasuna


Good day, my dear Osasunists!

TODAY IT WAS THE DAY! A day like today, but 25 years ago, Osasuna made history in Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

I couldn't believe it! I was having dinner with my friends, I was 20 years old, studying at university and preparing our New Year's Eve. We weren't going to dress up as many youngsters did and do in Pamplona, but we wanted to celebrate a different New Year's Eve, and Osasuna gave us the excuse.

When we found out the score, we couldn't imagine the historical score: 0-4. We asked people to repeat the result several times, and when we arrived home we couldn't watch the match in any computer because they didn't exist, we couldn't connect with Internet or youtube to watch the highlights, because they didn't exist, but fortunately there are videos and the TV's channels could put the videos on the following day, and we celebrated, as Osasunists, an incredible New Year's Eve 1990.

There have been many good games ( and bad, of course, but now are irrelevant ) in the history of Osasuna, but after the Promotion in 1979/80 or the UEFA classification and games in 1984/85 and the following season with the European games at El Sadar, it was the most important in the Spanish League, which wasn't yet known as La Liga and stars like Messi or Ronaldo weren't born either.

As the slogan of the supporters of Osasuna says this season : VOLVEREMOS ( WE WILL BE BACK ) and the game against Sabadell last season is still in my memory, but 0-4 against REAL MADRID,...UFFFFF! IT IS THE GAME!

GORA OSASUNA! AUPA ROJILLOS!

A post from Exmouth




Good morning, dear followers! Here we are in our staying in Exmouth after three days of lessons and activities in this beautiful seaside town of about 45,000 people who put us up with gentle care! Our students have lessons in Mountland Language school in the mornings. They start at 9 and have two English speaking lesson with a native teacher and then they later have a break for half an hour until 11.30 After that, they have another lesson with another native teacher until 13.30 when they lunch time starts. After lunch there have been several activities organised as something like a gymkana to get used to the town, British culture and today they will watch a British comedy film. Yesterday evening, after our early dinner at 6 in the afternoon, all we went to a Rugby club to dance in a kind of disco with other young students from Madrid, but we completed the "night" with a visit to a local pub which held live music from the 60's and 70's. We will continue our staying here until Monday that we will go to London, but before we will visit Exeter too and go bowling or do a day trip to Exeter too. But that will be another post. See you!

Road to Exmouth-England-Great Britain


Hi, there!
Here we are again for a short post about a trip with students from our school.
This time the destination is England and it is not a language interchange, but an immersion in English in a small town called Exmouth, 16 kms from a bigger city, Exeter, as you see with a common root name due to a river: Exe.
We will try to keep news from there and send some photos.
Up to now, we have the group photo and a video about our destination.
See you!

The best videos
