El esqueleto de la Señora Morales

Lisa Carrión, one of our teachers, has written the adaptation of a "hilarious" play called El esqueleto de la Señora Morales, which is based on The Islington Mystery by Arthur Machen.
You are invited to watch the show at Teatro Rafael Solana, where you can see it every Thursday until the 6th of December. The play starts at 8:30 pm, and the theatre is at Miguel Angel de Quevedo 687, Mexico City.

Virtual Library

We have added further features to Gardner English thanks to Google Apps. Our teachers are now able to look for books in the school library via Internet, as the Gardner English library now has an extensive catalogue which is shared with all our teachers. This step saves them time when considering which materials to take to their classes. It also benefits our students, because these materials will be the most suitable for their development.

Present, Absent, Late...

Gardner English teachers now have the option of delivering their class attendance via Internet. As we use Google Docs & Spreadsheets to share spreadsheets, it's easy to fill them with the details of our classes. This step will save time for Gardner English teachers and for our administrative team.

The website has also been updated a little this week, because we've included our team's birthdays on its calendar. This way, everybody can celebrate them! We believe that the Gardner English staff deserve this public mention for the hard work and effort they've put in over the years.

Teacher Interviewed

David Bevis, one of our school's teachers, has just been interviewed by the website Expat Interviews, which brings together articles about people who are living outside their native countries. In his interview, David talks about his experiences of being in Mexico, how it was when he arrived, how it is now, and shares his photos of Mexico.

You can also find many other people's biographies on this site, which reveals stories about people in countries all over the world. As this site is in English, it also represents an opportunity for any English student who wishes to practise what they've learned.

Gardner English and Google Apps

Gardner English is now backed by Google when it comes to communication. Our school's teachers will have email accounts provided by Google Apps, which will also be linked to online calendars and documents. We expect this step to make the school more responsive in its relationships with clients and students.

New Resource Page

Our students' forum now has a resource page to help students with their learning. This page provides several links to websites for reference, external exams and bookshops for English students. In this way, we believe that our students will have more options when they are studying.

Eleven Years of Gardner English

Gardner English is celebrating its eleventh anniversary this week, as it was founded on the 26th of August, 1996. We have seen many changes in that many years, and hope to see many more in those to come.

In just the last two weeks, we have set up new ways of communicating with our clients and students. This week, we will be providing new tools to the teachers at Gardner English.

Students' Forum

Gardner English now has a forum exclusively for our students' questions. This forum is a public website, so any student may enter it to see the questions and answers which come up to help them with their own studies. We believe that sharing this resource will be very useful for everyone concerned.
