Kirstyn Wyatt's experience at EP Javeriana

Kirstyn Wyatt our Assistant this schoolyear, decided to go back to The States to become a Spanish Teacher there. It has been a pleasure working with her at our school and we wish her the best for her new career. 

Farewell  party in one of the classrooms:

This is what she thinks about her experience in EP Javeriana:

"This year at EPJ has been a wonderful new experience. I've never taught in a vocational setting, but the staff and students have welcomed me with open arms. I've grown a lot as a teacher in my time here.
I've enjoyed working on creative collaborative projects with all the classes. We have created restaurants, made videos, played games, laughed, and even taken a trip around the entire world together! The students here seemed to really enjoy our time together as well. They have made so much progress in English since we first met. I'm proud of all the hard work they've done to improve!

It has been very interesting to see how they reacted to project-based learning. Each class has a different dynamic. There have been ups and downs, but they rose to the occasion more often than not.
Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of the English department at EPJ.
I hope to continue working with you all in the future!"

Caja Madrid Eurobecas

Today, four of our students were awarded with a Caja Madrid Eurobeca. CONGRATULATIONS!!

Three of them, in their second year of International Trade and Administration and Finance did their internships abroad with the Erasmus Programme: Sara Essaddiki went to Istanbul, Turkey and Carlos Arnanz and Jaime Jiménez finished their degree in Tallinn, Estonia.

Fernando Rodríguez, started studying Administration and Finance in the Escuela Profesional Javeriana this school year. He has been awarded with a Caja Madrid Eurobeca to do an internship in Ireland during the summer. This is what he expected about it:

"What do I expect of Ireland? Well, you never know! Increasing my experience and boosting my CV for sure or expanding my future network. One thing is clear: without studying English, this experience would be impossible!

So I would like to recommend everyone reading to study English! In this time, knowing languages is a must. In fact, I have English clients (I am also an entrepreneur, sorry not to mention!). It means that if I hadn’t known any English, I wouldn’t have been able to make business with them. That’s the importance of English nowadays.

So, what are you waiting for? Study English and apply for the next!"

Dear teacher:

The project website was very good because we were able to learn how to create a website and how complicated it is. We thought of an antique product because there are a lot of collectors and we decided it was a great opportunity to sell their products online. We did it using Dreamweaver.
