Welcome to my Web Page!
Being able to use a foreign language is a key component of the 21st Century. Through the years in Secondary Education in my classes, I will try to provide the necessary tools to develop oral and written fluency in English. In order to do that, English will be the language of communication in class. Using a communicative approach, and following the guidelines of the European Framework of Reference for Languages, we will develop the necessary competences for communication, the related knowledge and skills, and the situations and domains of communication, one step at a time.
Learning a foreign language should be fun. I hope we are able to create a positive and engaging environment together, so that you can improve your language skills during this school year. In order to do that, we will constantly use the 4 skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing). The more you use the language, the faster you will learn.
I will try to be available both inside and outside the class as much as possible in order to help you, but you must be in charge of your own learning process. By paying attention in class, participating, and finishing all required assignments you will improve your English by the end of the year: guaranteed.
This is a Web Page in progress. By clicking on your CLASS tab you will find a course description. The CALENDAR OF EVENTS tab, will allow you to find most assignments. This year I will ask you to send me some files with oral presentations. Check the ORAL ASSIGMNENTS tab so that you can find more information. As the year moves along, I will incorporate assignments, activities and links that will allow you to use this web as a tool to do different things in English as you learn.
I am looking forward to a great year together and remember... this is the web page where you can learn English with Jacobo Mir!
