Shopping in Madrid 2018

In the EP Javeriana we were analysing different High Streets around the world, so we decided to go window shopping to four of them in Madrid: Preciados, Serrano, Goya and Fuencarral. 

We also did some research on the English language used by taking pictures of the signs we found. After processing the information, the different groups presented it to the class and we debated on the use of English for Marketing and Publicity.


"Our conclusion is that businesses are interested in tourists as they use everyday English signs to catch their attention. All the globalization let us think about how interested we have to be in learning  English. The use of English also make all businesses have the appearance of being more international"

"It was a very cool experience. We could see various types of shops with various English signs on them while exploring this street. We learnt the tipe of vocabulary used in clothing and jewelry shops"

"The signs in English are in chain stores (because all the stores are similar, it doesn't matter the ubication). In little stores there aren't many things in English. We have learnt that the main language of Marketing is English."

How to negotiate internationally

Our bilingual International Trade 2 class worked on a project to develop global negotiation guides for 5 different countries in 5 continents.

We prepared a presentation to motivate year 1 students for the negotiation class they are taking next year and explained to them the way we coordinate the English class, the International Negotiation class and the assisstant class.


It was such a great experience, all the students did a great job with the presentation and prepared a kahoot game to select the best international negotiator.

The International Trade 1 students had the opportunity to make them questions and exchange points of view.


These are the guides we worked on:


These are some comments from the Negotiation class students:
"In the Global Negotiation Guides we have learnt a lot of information about some countries in the guide for example the negotiation protocol, strategy of each of the parties, dress code, greetings and small talk… Things that we need to know in order to set a negotiation and reach deal.
We also have learnt how to do presentations in English to other people that we don’t know, so that means that we’ve learnt how to feel confident as well."
Daniel, Mario, Miguel M, Ikeli

"As a group, we think it has been very interesting this project because it has helped us know that each country is different, that nothing as simple as it seems to be, where you will have to understand their way of live to know how they work, or treat people, anything.
To negotiate you have to know each part of communication as so how to negotiate to make it right and realise that the best way of finishing is getting a win-win. We have learned how to negotiate in a way that doesn’t makes someone harder than the other and nothing like that, equal parts."
Adrián Aguado, Jesús García, Rubén García, Pablo Bermejo.

Welcome Ameen!


This year we have a new assistant at our School, his name is Ameen and we feel very lucky to have him in our classes. This is his message to the EP Javeriana:


"Hi everyone! My name is Ameen and I am an English teacher from Miami, Florida. This is my second year living in Madrid and I absolutely love it here. I like cooking, reading, and watching old movies. When I teach, I like to give students the chance to speak as much as possible. I hope the activities that I bring to your class are interesting and relatable, and I am very open to your feedback. I want students to feel comfortable talking to me about anything (in English of course), because I think personal, informal conversations are the best way to practice. These conversations also help me get to know you, so I can tailor my teaching to your interests and needs."
