Hello again dear friends!

Our students will start unit 6 (In my house) next week. As you know, at the end of this unit they will be able to identify different types of housing, to recognise building materials, to identify rooms and furniture in a house, to associate furniture with specific rooms, to interpret a floor plan, and to give one’s address. They can practice with this easy presentation (don’t worry, it contains audio and subtitles). I hope it helps you.

Regards, Christopher.

Hello again dear friends!

As you know, students (6th level) are learning the use and structures of “There is a/an…” “There are some…” “There isn’t a/an…” “There aren’t any…” “Is there a/an…?” “Are there any…?” This is the reason why I’ve decided they will have to write a brief essay using a picture (the picture they want) and the deadline will be next 1st February (Wednesday). They have to write 3 examples of each kind: 6 affirmatives (3 singulars and 3 plurals), 6 negatives (3 sing. and 3 plu.), and 6 interrogatives (3 sing. and 3 plu.) Here they are an example of each one I’ve done as an example.

Affirmative sentences:
  • There is a bed in the corner of the room.
  • There are two pens (yellow and green) on the floor of the room.

Negative sentences:
  • There isn’t a monster sat in the room.
  • There aren’t any rabbits on the floor of the room.

Interrogative sentences:
  • Is there one schoolbag in the room?
  • Are there any pictures on the wall?

Good luck. Regards, Christopher.

Our students (6th level) are learning the uses of “There is” and “There are” in positive, negative and interrogative sentences. The picture (grammar) and the video can help them.


We use There is/There are to say that something exists (or does not exist). The real subject usually comes after There is/There are.

AFFIRMATIVE SENTENCES: use "There is" for singular nouns and things you cannot count.
There is a ghost in this room.... 
  •  There is an apple on the desk.
  • There is some oil in the pavement.

Use "There are" for plural nouns; that is to say, we use there are with a plural subject.
  • There are four windows in my room
  • There are some windows in my room

NEGATIVE SENTENCES: to say the opposite, (the negative form of this structure), use isn't (is + not)    or    aren't (are + not). 
 There isn't a balcony.
 There isn’t an orange on the table
 There aren't any chairs in this room

INTERROGATIVE SENTENCES: as almost always happens in English, to make questions with this structure change the order of the sentence at the beginning.
  • Is there a balcony in the flat?
  • Are there any glasses in the cupboard?

  • Is there…? Yes, there is / No there isn’t.
  • Are there…? Yes, there are / No, there aren’t.

Regards, Christopher.

Hello again dear friends:

Here you are one of my favourite songs. Adele is one of the best singer nowadays but… who is Adele?

Adele is a Grammy-awarded British singer born as Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, on May 5, 1988 in North London. She herself describes her music as something meant for heartbroken people. She is the very first artist awarded with the "Critics' Choice" in the 2007 BRIT Awards, which is given to performers who have not yet launched an album during the time of the award-giving ceremony. 

In May of the year 2006, Adele graduated from Croydon's BRIT school, which was also attended by artists such as Leona Lewis, Kate Nash, Amy Winehouse, etc. A month after her graduation, Adele published a couple of her songs on and eventually started participating in small gigs in the UK. She also joined a tour with Jack Penate (her bestfriend), and other performers like Amos Lee, the Exist band, etc.

Write a comment writing your favourite songs in English Language and… who know? Maybe it will appear here in a near future.

Regards and Happy New Year, Christopher.

Christmas at Las Lomas School

Last Wednesday, 21st december, students from Las Lomas School celebrated the Christmas Holidays with plays and Christmas carols in English Language. Each class made different things, such as:

  • 1st level A: Christmas Carol - Frosty, the snowman
  • 1st level B: Christmas Carol – We wish you a Merry Christmas
  • 2nd level A: Christmas Carol – Let it snow
  • 2nd level B: A Christmas Carol
  • 4th level A: Christmas play – The Little Christmas Spider
  • 4th level B: Christmas Carol – Around the Christmas Tree
  • 5th level A: Christmas Carol – Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer
  • 5th level B: Christmas play – Jesus Birth
  • 6th level: Christmas play – Christmas around the world

Regards, Christopher.


Students (4th level A), played this Christmas story “The Little Christmas Spider”. It is full of characters (something for every kid) and it’s intertwined with kids´ rhymes and songs. This story shows that every single creature in the world has a purpose, regardless of the way it looks, and it’s a bit old-fashioned, being based on traditional Christmas world tales.

The little spider Itsy Bitsy lived on a little farm. She didn’t like winter, because snow always broke his webs. Itsy Bitsy lives all alone. She had no family and no friends. And why? All because the other animals thought she was ugly and scary. But this is a special day for Itsy Bitsy. His life is going to change...

I hope you like the video, because all my students got fun while playing the story. Thanks a lot dear students and families: Mario (cow), Marta A (girl)., Armando (snowflake), Sebastián (donkey), Natalia (Itsy Bitsy Spider), Damián (bird), María G. (sheep), Sergio (bear), María J. (narrator), María L. (Mary), Andrea (snowman), Alejandro (Joseph), José (boy), Paula (fly), Isabel (narrator), Gabriela (rabbit), Daniela (fly) and Irene (snowflake).

Regards, Christopher.
