Days flash past ... This is the end

Hi there! Almost 4 years have gone by since we started this new adventure together. We had an impressive challenge ahead of us and this might be the right time to assess what we have achieved. Was it worth it? Did the bilingual project fulfill your expectations? I would like to know what you think of all this. We have used the blog to register nearly all the activities we have done so far. Let's use it one last time to record our feelings about the bilingual project. How can we do it? Well, it's up to you. Whatever you like is OK. However, if you can't think of anything, try this: Choose a moment and explain why it was important to you. It could be some memories of one of the activities done or a precious moment dear to you that you want to share with us. And don't forget to include a photo!!

Personally, I can't choose just one moment. It's simply impossible to summarize 4 years with one picture. There have been so many ups and downs, so many good moments in which I thought everything was possible, and immediately after some setback would make me cry in despair! 
On the whole, I believe this has been one of the most important experiences in my career as a teacher and you will always be in my heart. But I don't want to sound too sentimental, so I am going to do what I want you to do: choose a picture and comment on it.

I think this was the beginning. We had started school like two weeks before but that first session with Brittany was, as I see it, the starting signal, the green light to a journey full of exciting adventures. Nothing could stop us then, and nothing can stop you now. Remember: you can beat the world, don't wait for luck, dedicate yourself and you can find yourself standing in the Hall of Fame.

Special moments:
- our first English lesson
- the first time I chatted in English online with one of you (I think it was Lidia)
- your oral presentations
- the "tutoría" sessions with Mª Paz
- the trip to Gibraltar, in spite of Javi attacking the monkeys
- whenever I have to phone your home (especially Ana Simón's)
- whenever I prepare a photocopy, anticipating Elena's protests
- singing together
- our two last "fiesta de las mesas"
- the trip to Paris and London, especially the return journey, when everybody was crying on the train
- ... and more, and more
