EVENTOS SOCIALES: INGLÉS MÁLAGA SPEED DATING

INGLÉS MÁLAGA SPEED DATING 

With the Inglés Málaga Speed Dating event there is no better way to practise your abilities to ask and answer questions in English.

If I went speed dating, these would be my questions:

  1. Do you have a passport?
  2. Do you have a pet?
  3. If you had to be an animal, would you be an ant or an anteater?
  4. If you could be a superhero, who would you be?
  5. It is said that smart phones make smart people dumb, and dumb people smart. Would you agree?
  6. According to the popular film character Forest Gump, ”life is a like a box of chocolates”. So, with this in mind, are you a strawberry delight, or a chocolate toffee finger?
  7. How often do you talk about food, and say: ”mmmm…..yummy” when you eat?

If you want to take part in an Inglés Málaga speed dating event in order to practise your English, ( we are not a pick-up-joint) then please send an email to Janette, Senior Speed Dating Director: info.inglesmalaga@gmail.com

A-levels vs the International Baccalaureate: which makes a more rounded student?

Lecturer in Education, University of Bath

Few would disagree that a good education means more than just exam results. The benefits of non-academic experiences – from sports competitions, charity events, or school plays – have been shown to lead to more than just happy memories.

Evidence shows that taking part in extracurricular activities can support academic attainment, even into adulthood, as well as bringing personal benefits such as social skills, improved well-being, and self-confidence.

England are through to the semi-finals

It wasn´t a dream, it wasn´t a hallucination: the England football club are through to the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.  It´s a huge effort, it´s an enormous achievement, and considering that last time this happened was in 1990, I have every right to feel dizzy with excitement and hope for a stunning semi-final victory.

I watched the match with a group of young English lads who were fresh-faced, just out of high-school, and innocent of the years of heartache that the majority of English football fans have experienced over the last three decades.  They truly believed that England could do it.  I, on the other hand, willed myself to quash the stomach-wrenching feeling that England would, once again, under-perform.

So, the fear of defeat is broken, and I thank every single one of those lads who helped me to ride the exhilarating wave of football emotion. Come on England!

World Cup quarter-finals 2018

The World Cup 2018 tournament has been dramatic.  I have seen some brilliant football and some awful football.  I have watched high-ranking world-class teams crash out of the tournament during the group stages and three agonising penalty shootouts. As a sport lover and a huge football fan, it´s simply impossible to describe the illogical emotions that you go through when you watch and will your team to perform to the very best of their ability.  It´s a raw emotion, that  brings out the very best, and the very worst in people.

In general, I´m crazy about watching football because you get lost in the moment, cognitive reasoning is thrown out of the window, nothing outside of the pitch matters, and for a brief moment, you allow yourself to believe that anything is possible.  Come on England, I believe.

World Cup 2018 is just around the corner!

The World Cup 2018 is just around the corner, and I have ants in my pants to get hooked on this world tournament.

I am excited to see the world´s top male football athletes push themselves to their physical and mental limits; I am excited to see individual talent working together as a team to achieve a collective dream; I am excited to support a tournament that has the potential to break racial, religious and cultural discrimination, and, I am excited to learn more about Russia. But, I will not forget the long list of human rights abuses that have been committed under Putin´s governance. So, do get excited with me and support your teams with pride, grace and dignity, but, say no to racism,  xenophobia and discrimination.
