Proyecto Internacional 7º básico (2017)
Under the guidance of Professor Ingrid Arriagada, the seventh grade students of the English class made an International Project in which they dedicated themselves to cooking.
This project is based on the vocabulary of “cooking and eating”. To apply what has been learned by the students, “we ventured to the exchange between the professors: Liang Du and his class, from China; the Polish teacher Renata Pieprzak and two students from her group; and advanced English students of the 7th grade of the German Institute of Osorno, “explained Professor Ingrid Arriagada.
For example, through the Yahoo groups the students communicated for weeks, and exchanged information and ideas, loaded photos and PowerPoint presentations. Afterwards, each group of students met at home to produce a cooking video. With the help of mothers and / or domestic workers, they cooked and explained step by step what was being prepared in English.
In addition, each team created a PowerPoint presentation, in which they presented the foreign group and a typical recipe from that country.

Poster Project: Friendship – Día de la Convivencia Escolar (2016)
The assignment was to create a poster that represented the IB Student Profile Principled, which includes moral values, humanity, friendship, being a good person and treating others well.
To carry out this activity we partnered with a school in Kentucky, The Unites States. Candy Worley, the Spanish teacher at Berea Community High School made the posters with her students and then exchanged them with ours. The children used different techniques and conveyed the message.
