Thank you Cooper!!

Cooper Wilson, from Michigan (USA), was our language assistant this School Year. It has been a pleasure working with him and now, after this intense year, we share lots of memories: our Magic Show at Halloween, the Saint Francis Xavier show, the delicious Christmas cookies he cooked for us, our Solidarity Breakfasts, all the critical thinking activities in the classes, our Business is fun projects, the 3 minute presentations, our Second Year student Graduation…

If you want to find out about what we do in the EP Javeriana, in this video, Cooper tells us about his experience here in really fluent Spanish.


Cooper, thank you for your enthusiasm, involvement and work. We will always remember you!!

Compare and contrast: Education System in Estonia

Last week I had the opportunity to participate in the Study trip to Tallinn organised by BEDA. It was just a great experience being able to meet Peeter Mehisto and Tuula Asikainen and learn and discuss about the Estonian Education System with the wonderful colleagues from BEDA schools.
But why Estonia? Estonia had the best result in the Pisa Report!!!

When visiting the Schools we could verify how high the communication competences students had in Estonian, Russian and English and it was a pleasure learning about their learning context and analysing the factors that helped them reach this point. I share a infographic I prepared.

Thank you so much BEDA and EP. Javeriana for this fabulous opportunity. It has been an experienced that made me grow professionally and personally.

I have a dream...

Peace day is a very important day at our School. This year Asunción Esteso from EP Xavier proposed to talk about Martin Luther King Jr. and we decided to do an activity in our English classes with Cooper, our native assistant. We watched part of his speech...

And closed our eyes to picture our dream....

If you want to learn more about Martin Luther King you can always watch Selma.

EP Xavier launches Business is fun: Shopping in Valencia

Good news! When we presented in the teacher’s meet in Galapagar our experience implementing the BEDA Programme, the E.P. Xavier decided to launch some of our Business is fun projects in their classes.  

We were really excited with the idea and started exchanging materials. Asunción Esteso adapted the project with lots of enthusiasm and the Students of the Commercial Activities Degree really got involved in the activity.  The result: a wonderful Shopping in Valencia project.

The challenge: finding out if Valencia’s commercial area is oriented to tourism. The students visited the city centre area taking pictures of the signs they found in different languages and analysed the information afterwards.

Asunción Esteso, the teacher who ran the project, says: “We enjoyed the activity very much. Thanks for sharing it! It is a different approach to English that increases motivation and communication”. You can read a more extensive reflection on her experience on EP. Xavier's blog.

CONGRATULATIONS from E.P. Javeriana to the students that participated in the project and of course, to Asunción for the initiative and for sharing all the materials with us. You did a great job! 

We are just posting a sample of the student’s work but you can read the whole document by clicking on the image. Please do, it is very interesting!!

 "We made this work because we wanted to know if Valencia is a city oriented to tourism. The purpose of this work is to take photos of what we consider shops oriented to tourists. We assess the written signs in different languages. 

Valencia is a very multicultural city, in special it is oriented to northern Europe tourists. The majority of tourists are British, Dutch and Germans, but there are also Japaneses and Italians, so we can find that in most of the shops, English is widely used and we can see some signals written in Italian also. 

Here we have a cardboard where we can see a typical British menu oriented to that kind of tourists, It was located near Plaza la Virgen and it was surprisingly successful.

As you can see in that panel there are mixed words in both languages, Spanish and English so local people and everyone that speaks English can understand what kind of food they are offering.


It’s very important to local shops owners to find a way to communicate with those clients because they can mean an important income for their economy in a city oriented to tourism as Valencia. In the last photo as you can see it doesn’t take much effort to write the words “fast food” but it has a powerful impact in people that speak English.
