For those people that are not interested in having English classes in Madrid and also are not able to participate in the Saturday workshops we have planned, how about giving The Language Corner’s Idiom calendar as a present. You, or your friends, can spend each month of 2016 learning a new idiom. (Idioms are common English expressions. Learning them will help you speak with more fluency). This calendar was designed by one of our very own native and qualified teachers, Daniel Matthews. Calendars are 10€ and are available for order at either Language School: Calle Gerardo Cordón, 51 Metro: La Elipa (l2) or Calle Gandi, 19 Metro: La Almudena (L2) or Garcia Noblejas (L7).
A beautiful gift for yourself or a friend, this calender will help you improve your English at home. Each month you will have a wonderful idiom on display with an explanation and sample sentence. If you are trying to improve your English in Madrid, this is an excellent idea!
Jessica, one of the native English teachers at The Language Corner located on Calle Gandhi, 19 28017, spent one year volunteering in Africa. While in Africa, she volunteered teaching students who were learning English. This gave her lot of experience that she uses in her English classes in Madrid.
This experience also let Jessica see first hand what it is like to live in a “third world country”. If you are living in Madrid and would like to help a project in Africa, Born To Learn is a Tanzanian NGO. It helps to fund education for children who cannot afford it.
Born to Learn is an NGO in Tanzania helping children get an education.
To help raise money for this NGO raffle tickets are being sold. Each ticket is 2,50€. All money collected will be donated directly to the NGO. Not only are you helping a great organization, but one person will win a car! The draw will take place December 26th.
On Dec 26th someone will win this 1961 “Beetle”.
Want to know where you can buy tickets? They are for sale at our English school in Madrid. The Language Corner English Academy has two centers to study English in Ciudad Lineal.

Don’t worry about your level of English as only a basic level is needed to participate.
The price is only 6€, which includes a drink. Of course this session is for everybody, not just The Language Corner students, so tell all your friends!
The children in our schools have been working hard to create various projects in the last few weeks, and here we have Ines and Paula telling a ‘Knock Knock’ joke, a very typical British joke. We also have more videos on our Youtube channel: http://youtu.be/DA2KQGtHqv8
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!
