Survey about the English Club activity and its blog

   The school year is coming to an end together with 9 months of work of the English Club and eight months of life of our blog "Shake your English!".
   In order to be able to meet the expectations of the whole school community about the role the English Club should play as well as to improve the quality of the blog in the coming year,  we decided to ask some students and teachers about their opinion concerning the English Club activity and the blog.
  Here is what they said:

                                Reporter: José Cardoso (8th grade student)

Reporters: Mariana, Mafalda and Priscila 
                                        (11th grade students)

  Reporter: João Veloso (8th grade student)

                 Reporters: Viviana  Szczurek and Rita Terroso 
(11th grade students) 

Interviewing Daniel ( 9th grade student) and 
Joaquim (7th grade student)
  Reporter:Filipa (7th grade student)

Reporters:Yamine and André 
(11th grade students)
Students from 8th B express their opinions on the blog: 
The blog is interesting, complete and the games are well done.
By Afonso Pinheiro

"I like the whole blogue a lot. There are good news, videos and games. I specially liked the videos about our school. I would like to see a video of a contest where students played Gear. I think the blogue is interesting. Through the games and the quizzes I learnt new words and so I improved my English. " 
By Miguel Ângelo Pinto

"We like the blogue, specially the games: the interactive quizzes and the quiz shows. We enjoyed to learn more about general culture in English. The blogue itself is very well-organised. We will visit it more often." 
By Nuno Silva and Pedro Leite

" We loved the mob dance Gotta Keep Reading. It was an unusual and very interesting activity. We hope it will happen again in our school." 
By Ana Sofia Silva and Francisca Moura

" We are not alone in this school, we can get together in one place, in a single location and that is a good meeting point." 
By Daniela Moreira and Filipa Magalhães

" The games are really cool and interesting!"
By Maria Miguel Ribeiro and Teresa Aguiar

Love Letter to my class

"Biodiversity plays a major role in the balance of our planet. What about diversity among people?
One of our classmates decided to use such a shallow festivity as Valentine's Day to pay us all a compliment as a class. Now, after all these months, we use this tribute as a "see you soon".
