Few activities provide us with as much satisfaction at International House Madrid as the Traveling Book , that is, the contest in which our students get involved in making a group book -one is presented per class- and contribute with texts and images of their own. harvest to shape the final work. Each one of them chooses a topic of their liking and talks about their favorite thing in that area , be it a music group, a video game, a dessert, a country or a city, etc. In this link you can see the complete rules of the contest.
It’s a great way to get to know our students and for them to get to know each other better , plus the work they’ve produced is exceptional; In the following photo you can see the jury, overwhelmed by the quality of the works received . We leave you with them and with the words they have dedicated to the contestants. Thank you and congratulations to all for your work!
