Kids Project from Calle Gandhi, La Almudena

The J2 group at our school in Calle Gandhi 19, La Almudena have made these fantastic photos to display a range of emotions in English. The children had a great time learning these conversational phrases and demonstrating them in picture form. We hope you have as much fun seeing the photos as the children did making them!

There will be more photos and videos to come from our classes for children to come in the next few weeks. So look out for the kids acting, singing or performing in English!

Laughter Yoga in ENGLISH!

Laughter! It is such a simple thing and it is such a healthy thing. Many studies show that laughter has the ability to heal our bodies physically, mentally and emotionally.

Laughing can also help with your English learning process. When you are laughing your body releases positive, “feel good” vibes. Laughter also puts you in a state of “child-like” joy. This means you are more willing to try and not as afraid to make mistakes.

 Are you interested in trying to improve your English with Laughter? Visit our Language Academy located in Cuidad Lineal neighborhood. The Language Corner (Calle Gandhi,19) offers Laughter Yoga classes in English. The next class will be MONDAY 9, JUNE at 8:00pm.

Would you like to participate? Please call or visit us to find out more!
