Happy summer!

We did it!

We tried and tried and we finally were able to make the most of the extraordinary situation we have been coping with for the last 3 months. Some of you made a great effort to keep on learning and engaging with school so give yourselves a pat on the back! Now it's time to relax and enjoy your well deserved holidays. 

For those of you who have to continue working during the summer, keep up the good work and you will see the results in September :) 

And now, a few words for our seniors who haven't been able to say goodbye properly and who will certainly be missed: It's been great to be your teacher if only for a couple of years and I have really enjoyed getting to know you a bit more. I wish you all the best for the future and  I really look forward to seeing you for your Graduation in September!

My favourite gadget

Aki / Japan
My favorite gadget's the computer. I can't live without Internet or e-mailing or skyping. I always talk with my friends over Skype, domestic and international. I also always do a lot of Internet shopping. I love shopping on

Lindsay / United States
My favorite gadget is the cell phone. I really like being able to contact my friends at anytime I want to and I use it so often as a dictionary or to talk to my friends or to e-mail my friends or even to take pictures.

Shalini / Canada
To tell you the truth, I'm not much of a gadget person, however this little eight gigabyte hard-drive thing that I have here has really come in handy. It's thin and light and saves all my documents.

Lori / Canada
I'm not really all that fond of electronic gadgets but I guess the only one I use regularly now is my cellphone in Japan. When I first got my cell phone, I was really excited because it's years ahead in technology from what we have in Canada so that's really the only gadget that I use right now.

Tom / United States
I really love this electric hotpot I have. When I get home, I fill it full of water. I plug it in. I throw in some tea and I already have relaxed.

Jeff / Canada
My favorite gadget is a handheld game system that I just got, but I didn't buy it for the games. I bought it for the software you can get that turns it into an electronic dictionary and it actually recognizes you handwritings so you can write on the screen and look up words, that way. It's really fun.


Now write about your favourite gadget. You can answer the 5 W’s:

What is it? What do you use it for?

Why is it your favourite?

When did you get it? Was it a present?

Where do you use it?

When do you use it?

Happy Earth Day!

Today, we're celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. 

Earth Day reminds us to take care of our planet—whether it’s cleaning up, planting more trees, recycling or going for a walk in the mountains. 

Honoring the name of this blog and because whales are one of the animals threatened with extinction, I am posting this wonderful National Geographic video to learn a bit more about the biggest mammals on Earth. 


If you like quizzes, you can do some interesting ones on the Earth Day site. There is one specifically dealing with whales:

Learning together is always better!

Now, more than ever, we are reminded of the importance of working together. 

During the 2nd term we have done pair work activities, small group activities and team work in the English class. 

We have used scaffolding techniques to boost cooperative learning. Moreover, during the lessons with Joshua, our language assistant, we have used gamification techniques in order to learn while we have fun.  It has certainly been a good one!

We really hope to be back to school soon. Meanwhile, here is a video of some of our 2nd and 3rd ESO students slaving away at the activities. Stay home, stay safe!
