Hello, let me introduce myself. My name is Paul and I will be the Auxiliar de Conversación for this academic year. I am from the north west of England and live close to the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, in a town called Wigan. I have been teaching for the past twenty years and taught different age groups in different colleges and schools. I now live here in Jerez de los Caballeros with my wife Caty and daughter Lola, who is a student at this college. I look forward to meeting you and working with you all this year.
Over the next few weeks I will be working with the English department on Halloween and Guy Fawkes projects. This will give the students an insight into some typical English traditions, and allow them to talk with me about these topics and improve their use of the English language. Soon we will be celebrating Halloween with students and decorating our classrooms with scary things! so if you hear some scary noises please come in and say hello and you can play ‘trick or treat’ with us.

Goodbye Stephanie!!

        Last week, our auxiliary of conversation, Stephanie MacElroy, finished her work with our fifth and sixth graders. As you all know, the whole school was expecting her since October but some problems with her documents delayed her arrival. Finally, she was our Three Wise Men present for Christmas!

                We have enjoyed ourselves enormously with our teacher from Colorado (U.S.A). She did not only teach us some cultural aspects of her country or helped us to improve our level of English but she also has planned wonderful and funny lessons for the pupils: she explained to us how Easter is celebrated in the United States; she introduced us to the wonderful plays of William Shakespeare (one of her favorite writers, by the way); we have learnt grammar by choosing the ingredients for a funny pizza or inventing the amusing story of a super hero…

            Last Friday was a very moving day for the children who have been working with Stephanie during these last months. In the Meeting Room we thanked her for the labour she has carried out along the school year. A present, on behalf of the school, was given to her in order for Stephanie to have a fond memory of Jerez de los Caballeros.

             It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with you. Both students and teachers wish you all the best!!!

See you soon!!!

SOTOMAYOR Y TERRAZAS BOOK WEEK 2016.



In 2016 the world will commemorate 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare. As you know, Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English Language. Our school, has celebrated the fourth centenary of this author too.

Here, you can find some interesting information about the English writer. Come on, play the power point and check the connections between Shakespeare and some popular Disney films!!!


During The Book Week many marvelous books and comics have been exchanged among our pupils. Every book contained a gift: bookmarks related to different shakespearean plays. 


On the other hand, our 5th and 6th graders have watched and worked on the characters and plots of some famous shakespearean plays, such as “Romeo and Juliet”, “Hamlet” or “MacBeth” with the help of Stephanie ( our language assistant). If you want to take a look at the wonderful British Council web on Shakespeare, click this link and you will find cartoon shorts about the plays:

Information about Elizabethan Theatre have been acquired through this funny online game posted on the BBC web:

Finally, we have read this sonnet by Shakespeare:




¿A un día de verano compararte?
Más hermosura y suavidad posees.
Tiembla el brote de Mayo bajo el viento
y el estío no dura casi nada.

A veces demasiado brilla el ojo
solar, y otras su tez de oro se apaga;
toda belleza alguna vez declina,
ajada por la suerte o por el tiempo.

Pero eterno será el verano tuyo.
No perderás la gracia, ni la Muerte
se jactará de ensombrecer tus pasos
cuando crezcas en versos inmortales.

Vivirás mientras alguien vea y sienta
y esto pueda vivir y te dé vida.






Enjoy the recitation of the sonnet by David Tenant, actor of The Royal Shakespeare Company:
