School Day of Languages

On the 12th February we are going to celebrate our School  Day of Languages and, as usual, we'll have many contests, which  involve the whole school community. The Spelling Contest and the Reading Aloud Contest are just some of them.

In order to inspire you to participate in the Reading Aloud Contest, here are some of the participations of last school year (2014-15). Our students were amazing!

Watch the videos and get ready for this year's contest!

Stand-by Mode is over!

As you must have noticed , there were no posts during the school year 2014-15. Our blog, SHAKE YOUR ENGLISH, was in Stand-by Mode!
This doesn't however mean that the English teachers have stopped organising activities for our students and, to prove that, here are two videos about the performances of the English Theatre Company, which we invited to come to our school.
They are simply fabulous!
Later on more videos and posts about other activities, like the Day of Languages, with its spelling and reading aloud contests, as well as the karaoke contests, will be published. You just have to be a bit patient.:)

Video - " My School is no Island" by Maria João Gens

Texto has organised a competition on the topic "My school is no island" with the aim of developing production skills of the English language. The activity also intended to foster creativity and motivation to learn. Our student Maria João Gens of 10 K participated in this competition, producing and sending a video in English about our school. While we wait for the national results, here is the video, so that you can enjoy another quality project created by a student of our school.

video of the 1st karaoke casting 2013-14

The karaoke contest, organised by the English teachers of ESMaia, has already become a tradition. Students always look forward to having the opportunity to participate in this event, either as singers or as part of a very enthusiastic audience. Once again, the "polivalente" was too small for all the students who wished to watch the show. And, as usual, the event was a huge success. Congratulations to everyone!

Karaoke Finale

On 7th June the "polivalente" of Maia Secondary School was the stage of another finale of the karaoke contest. Once again, this edition was a huge success. The number of seats available was not enough. Therefore, every free place of the floor was occupied by students, eager to watch not only the performances of their friends but also Mariana Domingues's performance, our school star, who won the 2nd place in this year's "Ídolos" contest. 

A novelty of this show was the amazing background canvas painted by the art students of class 11th K, under the direction of their Art teacher, Lídia Castro.
Congratulation to them all. 

Below you can appreciate their excellent work.
