In September of 2011 I organized an open evening to promote the modern foreign languages courses at International House Newcastle. The event was a success and We got many enrolments that night.

The organization of the event was quite complex: brochures in different languages, typical songs and  traditional dishes from different countries, get in contact with the local Spanish, Arabic, Russian and Chinese communities, performances, marketing, social networks, the speeches…it was a big challenge for me!

En septiembre del 2011 organicé unas jornadas de puertas abiertas para promocionar los cursos de idiomas en International House Newcastle. El evento fue un éxito y obtuvimos varias matriculaciones de alumnos esa misma noche.

La organización del evento fue bastante complicada: folletes en varios idiomas, música tradicional y comida típica de diferentes países, contacto con las comunidades española, árabe, rusa y china de la ciudad de Newcastle, la organización de las actuaciones, el marketing, las redes sociales, los discursos….fue todo un desafio.

Este fue mi discurso

This was my speech

Hola y bienvenidos a International House Newcastle

Today is a very special day for me because I have been in Newcastle for exactly one year to this day.

I don’t want to bore you with my life story but……….. I want to share with you some of the things that I have learnt here in Newcastle

To be honest I didn’t know much about the history and culture in Northeast England.

But in the little time that I have spent here I have discovered that one of the characteristic of this region is a passion for life.

And it’s this passion for life that drew us to this city………..

Learning a language isn’t easy but…there are few things in life that are easy.

The only secret to learning a new language such us Russian, Arabic, Chinese and Spanish is to approach your studies with enthusiasm.

At International House Newcastle put everything into our work. We can offer you not only small groups, fantastic facilities or communicative methodology but the most important thing that we as school posses and the thing that we are most proud of is our passion for teaching languages.

Thank you for coming and I hope you enjoy the night.
