English class blog    Please take a look at my Advanced English student´s blog.  The school is called Colegio Multicultural Siglo XXI.  Each week I suggest a theme that they write about.  Check and you´ll see they wrote about Sandra Gulland´s visit, and before that, about what they were going to do over spring vacation.  We write one week and correct the texts the next, so you´ll find some mistakes.  Remember, these are Mexican kids writing in English. 

One kid wrote about his vacation, that he wasn´t going to do anything "and I´m gay."  I told him I thought he was hysterical, and he laughed as well.  I actually think another kid wrote it and signed Diego´s name.  In fun, not as aggression.  Anyway, I like how nobody was offended, and how Diego has enough self-esteem to think the entry was funny.  So I left it. 


  1. The comments are great, so teenagery universal & timeless. Don't you want to shake them, though? Good God, kiddo, be anything, but don't be bored! So much to do, so much to explore, and it's doubtful that you'll have these long hours to yourself in the future.

  2. Hi Susan! I found you online as I was researching potential teaching opportunities in San Miguel. I am having a had time finding an email address for Colegio Mulicultural. It looks and sounds like an amazing school. If you could email me at with any contact info, I would be eternally grateful! Thank you!
