Traditional methodology VS Modern methodology (essay)

Nowadays, educational methodology is suffering a change. Most people are in favor of the traditional methodology. However, other people are in favor of modern ones.
            On the one hand we have traditional methodology. It means that the most important person at school is the teacher; children have to learn using only a book and their memory (they don’t understand the lessons normally). These children are passive and their objective is only to listen and accept all that they are told by teachers.
            On the other hand, children are the center of education by new methodologies. They must be an active people, who can speak and tell their opinion, learn by experimenting the environment, etc. In addition, families are in contact with school because they have to know if their children are learning well and if everything is correct. And marks are not important. This methodology cares about children development.

            To conclude, in my opinion school has to offer a good and free education. Children need to be the center of education, not the teachers.



Hi Rocío,
Thanks for your last e-mail talking about trying to find a job and asking about my first year at college. I tried to reply before but I couldn’t because I was very busy. How are you? I hope you’re well as always.
            I’m ok, well, a little nervous about my assignments and homework... But I’m ok, thanks goodness. As you know, I started college this year and the first day was great. The first semester was very short for me because I only did two subjects: music and Catalan, and I passed both. This semester I’m really busy because I have to do a lot of work and assignments in a short period of time. In the evenings I’m still doing private lessons but this year it is difficult to combine college and this job, but I need the money as well.
            And that’s all! I hope you will find a job soon! I will try to pass my exams successfully. I want to spend this summer with you.

Good luck!

Best wishes.

Composition about myself

I am Irene Martini and I am going to tell you about myself. I am 23 and I am living in Ibiza at the moment.
     When I was young I lived in Jesus with my family, but now I am living on my own. I usually visit them at the weekend, but sometimes it is difficult because I have to study.
     This year I started to study Education because since I was a child I have wanted to be a teacher. Last year I finished an Education vocational training because I decided to start this degree, and at the moment I am in the first year.
     I love spending time doing a lot of things like crafts (macramé, costume jewellery, etc.) read about sign language, education, psychology, photography and more.

     I don't like sports, although, when I was a child I did basketball, tennis and handball.
