    CAN OUR students succeed in an English speaking country? Definitely yes, in this case eight corageous kids from our school embarked upon an adventure in one of the countries where Spanish is practically not spoken. That is right, IRELAND.

    In this case, they not only have to tour around the city, but to attend classes for a month in schools in Dublin. Guess what, they are doing really well, the reports given by their teachers certify that.

    This exchange is a great way to let our children strengthen their English, since they are studying exactly the same subjects as Irish students: math, science, geography, history, economics, ans so forth. All through English. Ous kids have to perform the same duties, exercises and tests as their Irish peers, and the teachers treat them both exactly in the same way.

    Another issue they have to deal with is that they are staying with host families and then living as any other Irish citizen.

    They have had to deal with situations like interacting at a bus stop, asking for prices, managing a different currency, finding out where places are, and so on; activities which are common, but in another country and in another language? Our students have been able to carry out these tasks and more. The feedback gotten from their host families makes us feel proud of our kids who are making our school and country known in the Green Isle.
