How did I spend my summer, you ask? I have been reading books, watching movies, watching controversial news and debates, watching interesting advertisements, traveling in Oman and taking pictures. And guess what? All of those were part of preparing for the new academic year because that’s what we’ll be doing in English classes. MYP and DP English is not just about reading classics and writing essays; it’s also about leaning what’s happening around the world, the role that media plays in bringing news to us, debating current issues, creating podcasts, videos, photo essays, writing stories and so much more. English is fun and I am excited to share this fun with you! I hope to see you all soon.
