Welcome to our class blog!




I’m Maria João Carvalho. I’ve been teaching English for twenty years and I love it!

Our school is located in Alhandra, near Vila Franca de Xira in Portugal. Our classes are full of smart, creative students aged 12 to 16 from 7th to 9th grade. 


Here you can find many resources to improve your English. You can express your feelings, your thoughts, your ideas. You can read and listen to stories and even make up your own. You can reach the world and the world can reach you.

Here is a bit more about me!



Here’s our first challenge for you!

Have a look at these photos, these clues and try to figure out a bit more about our school: name, location, points of interest around it… You can comment on interesting aspects, differences/similarities between our schools and surrounding areas.


We’ve also made a survey. Now let’s see what you were able to guess/find out.

  4. Hi,
    I am from Ms. Smith’s class in Canada. I really liked your prezi, it told a lot about who you are. I also really liked the video it was cool to see your life style (it is very different than ours). I enjoyed looking at the survey it really made me think.

  5. Hi! I think your blog was very reformative! I would love to visit Portugal now!! Learning in Portugal is really different form learning in California. I thought it was really neat that you provided videos and pictures!
