I love to teach and I love to learn. Over the years I've created hundreds of fun activities that make learning easy. We tried them out over and over again in the hallways, in the garden, in the street and yes, even in the classroom. Many are posted on this blog, "Shakespeare slept here." Many of you may have participated in them. 
I've always been both a teacher and a student in San Francisco, in Mexico and in Madrid. I was an English teacher at UEM for 18+ years. Now I'm happily retired and on to the next adventure.

Book Sale

The Language Center's 20th Book Exchange & Sale was a great success this spring because many of you participated. You donated books. You bought books. You moved books and tables so we could set up on the first day and close down on the second. Yes, many people were involved including a record number of student volunteers. You learned how to organize an event of this size and how to help people find books they might be interested in. You sold a lot of books and it made you feel good.

Writing Love letters. A lovely activity for the week preceding Valentine's Day. Hundreds of students and staff are participating again this year. And why not? We mustn't dwell on the negative, on our worries.

Today is Friday the 13th. Does that worry you? Have you even noticed the date yet?

If you're Spanish or if you're in Spain care must be taken on Tuesday the 13th, not Friday. " Martes y 13. Ni te cases , ni te embarques" is the traditional saying.

Candy Canes for sale! Nieves at the Language Center was responsible for all those handmade tags we put on the candy canes as well as for decorating the collection boxes. As in years past you get a candy cane with a cute tag in exchange for a euro. Some of the candy canes get eaten immediately. Others decorate Christmas trees or end up as table decor on Christmas Eve.

The "bake sale" was on. Everyone taste-tested 4 desserts and voted on the best. They also talked about Thanksgiving and cooking, and hung around practicing their English. The total euros collected: 416.60€.
