THE IMPORTANCE OF LEARNING ENGLISH AT SCHOOL English is the predominant language in the world. It is estimated that more than 500 million people speak it in a native way. This is the reason why it is important to teach English at school when the children are little.
On the one hand, the smaller the child is when he begins to study, the easier it will be and more benefits it will bring. This is because when the kids are little, they learn the language in a natural way and so they do not have to make a voluntary effort to learn it, because they acquire it as they develop. It will also increase the chances of getting the job they want when they are adults. Being bilingual or having a good level of English is a skill that today’s society greatly appreciates. On the other hand, the child can have access to two different cultures. This enriches their education and enables them to look at the world with an open mind. In this way, the child can communicate with people of other nationalities, having access to a globalized world. It is also important to note that the more languages they know, the easier it is to learn a new language. Besides, young children are not usually shy about speaking in a different language. To sum up, we are convinced that childhood is a good time to start talking and practicing English without fear of making mistakes, acquiring self-confidence for the future. AN EXCURSION TO THE CITY CENTRE On the 31st of May we went on an excursion to the Valencia city center. We took advantage of the good weather and the desire of the children for a new outing.

Some of the children got wet playing with with the water fountain in the middle of the square, because it was 27 degrees. We put on suncream and the cap and we went on our way. We visited the “Plaza de la Virgen” and we went up to the “Miguelete”, which is the bell tower of the Cathedral of Valencia. The children climbed 207 steps but it did not matter
