Comparing Cultures at the CARLEE

Have you ever visited a British school? If so, I’m sure that you will have noticed many interesting differences. This evening I had the pleasure of joining in with one of the ‘Speaking Skills’ classes with Melissa Danvers at the CARLEE. We discussed some of the contrasts between the Spanish and British education systems, such as uniforms, whole-school assemblies, single-sex schools, the curriculum, methodologies, academic results and state exams. As well as having an opportunity to improve their oral skills in English, the participants will now be able to share what they have learnt about British culture with their pupils.
