My name is Marisa de Dios. I’m a teacher at Escuela de Idiomas in Valencia, Spain. At the moment I’m teaching Advanced level and Business English. If you’d like to contact me, send an email to

My intention is that this is not a teacher’s blog, but a class blog, so I hope that you, my students, get involved and publish lots of posts. Thank you for your help. Without you this blog won’t be successful.

We also welcome comments and active participation from all those who want to learn or teach English.

    Marisa, I spent yesterday afternoon watching your last year blog , and I was really amazed, it seemed to me brilliant!
    It´s so useful, full of new ideas, interactive, and enjoyable…congratulations for your effort and interest in trying another way of teaching.
    Also BBC programs for learners are great!
    These days I am reading (better trying to read)a Marian Keyes´ book but I am finding it quite dificult since it´s full of slang and colloquial expressions so I have to use the on line dictionary frequently… Thank you for your welcome and see you in class!

    Thank you Nadia, it is so rewarding to read your compliments!
    Remember that the idea this year is that the blog is not only mine, but yours, so I hope that students post entries. For this I need you to send me an email with your FULL NAME,and group in which you’re registered.
    Once you do this, you should receive an email inviting you to become an author.

    Hi Nadia,I would like to confirm you that I completely agree with you. I’m telling you this by my own experience (as a pupil who last year was taking advantage of Marisa’s blog).We can’t imagine how much effort she put on it.Thanks again Marisa.

    Thank you Angela.

    It’s a pity that you cannot attend the lessons. Through our blog you can keep more or less up to date with what we do in class, so I hope it helps you to study for the exam.

    Marisa, unos compañeros blogueros han elegido mi blog en su selección de los ‘Blogs que merece la pena visitar’. Se trata de una especie de premio-mención para tu blog.
    Es como una cadena, ellos han elegido el mío y yo a mi vez les cito a ellos por haberme seleccionado y elijo mi propia lista de blogs recomendados, uno de ellos es el tuyo.
    Ahora tu tendrías que añadir tu propia selección con los enlaces correspondientes en una entrada de tu blog. Así publicitamos los blogs que nos gustan.

    Sigue el siguiente enlace hasta la entrada en mi blog si quieres ver como va la cosa:

    ¿Qué te parece? Espero que te guste la idea.

    Hola, Marisa! Vuestro blog ha crecido espectacularmente! Enhorabuena por el buen trabajo, de verdad. Te tenía que pedir el favor de que actualizaras en url del enlace que tenéis a mi blog, Our Virtual English Classroom. Este curso apenas lo utilicé y se me pasó renovar el dominio y me lo pillaron unos señores que venden pastillas azules muy famosas. El url que funciona es
    Gracias por adelantado.
    Un saludo

    María, gracias por avisarnos. Ya he modificado el link.

    I´m a teacher of Geography and History in Campo de Criptana (Ciudad Real). I work in the bilingual section of my high school. I studied English in the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas of Valencia with Barry Pennock. I learned a lot with him and I´m happy to see that there are still good teachers in the school.

    Your blog is very interesting. I´ve arrived here through the tutorial about Glogster on Youtube. I would like to congratulate you for this blog and thank you for all the resources you have included as well.

    I also have started a blog project with my students of 3º ESO this year. This is the link:

    The students write in black colour and teachers (the language assistant and I) in brown colour. The purpose is that they improve their writing skills and they have access to different links where they can learn more about the contents we study in the classroom.

    Congratulations again. I´ll come back. Bye,

    I am a Chinese and try to learn English by writing a English blog, I think it is useful to practice.

    Hello every one, here every one is sharing such
    knowledge, therefore it’s fastidious to read this webpage, and I used to visit this weblog every day.

    Que gusto encontrar herramientas como estas, que hacen aprender inglés de manera más fácil y accesible.
    Me llama la atención que a pesar de la distancia, pueda encontrar este tipo de comunidad con los mismo intereses que yo de aprender a distancia
    Excelentes aportaciones

    Felicidades !
