ROL DE EXÁMENES
By Renzo Cuadra Lazarte
London simply captivated me right from the
first day. With its old buildings, green parks
and museums, just the fact that I was actually
there thrilled me. I can still remember battling
my way home, with the cold wind blowing
in my face; or the times that I spent in that
tiny, cosy pub in Notting Hill with my friends
from Korea, Brazil, Uruguay and Switzerland,
eating chips and laughing at everyone. Those
were memorable moments in a city that gave
me not only better English, new places to
see and friends to make, but also, and even
more importantly, broadminded ideas and a
whole new vision of a cosmopolitan, culturally
different and amazing world. And all this made
possible with the support of the BRITÁNICO, to
which I’ll be eternally grateful.

NEWS IN BRIEF
Becados 2009-I: Testimonios
En la primera Ceremonia de Entrega de Certificados Internacionales del año, el BRITÁNICO otorgó diez becas al Reino Unido. En
esta oportunidad, cuatro de los ganadores nos brindan su testimonio, antes de viajar.
Unexpected reward
Siempre soñado, nunca imaginado
It’s hard to
explain
how
I feel about
winning
the
Scholarship.
I would have
never imagined
myself as one
of few people
that get this
amazing chance. I remember the first time I heard about
it, I thought it was only for people who could speak
English perfectly and of course not for me. Even when I
took the exam, I was not sure I was going to pass. When
I found out that I had got an A and then that I won the
Scholarship, I still couldn’t believe it. I will always be
grateful to the BRITÁNICO for giving me this opportunity
and to my friends and family that always believe in me.
Ganar una beca
es probablemente
algo
que
nadie
espera,
por
lo
menos yo nunca lo
imaginé.
Cuando
me
informaron
que era una de las
posibles ganadoras,
me sentí inspirada
y emocionada, pero
siempre con los pies en la tierra. Aun sabiendo que me voy
a ir por un mes al Reino Unido, todavía no puedo creerlo.
Ahora sé que nada es imposible y que los sueños realmente
sí se vuelven realidad. Gracias al BRITÁNICO y a todos los
profesores que me tuvieron que soportar, por su paciencia;
y también gracias a mi colegio por la buena preparación que
recibí. De verdad, les debo un montón.

I’m very grateful…
•
By Karen Urbina Saldarriaga
Learning new things is a challenge to anyone but with the
proper preparation from dedicated teachers everything
becomes less hard. Studying at the BRITÁNICO has been a
most rewarding and enriching experience which has improved
my English with every class I have attended and with all the
support from the teachers, who are excellent at their job.
After concluding the Advanced Phase and taking the FCE exam,
never did it cross my mind that I was going to win the Scholarship
for Excellence along with the other candidates. For me,
getting an ‘A’ was enough, however, winning the scholarship
was really unexpected and I am much obliged to my parents
for
encouraging
me to study at the
BRITÁNICO
and
also my teachers
who have been the
best of the best.
I’m very grateful
for this opportunity
you have given me
and I promise that it
won’t be a waste.

Cuando vi que
había obtenido
A en el FCE,
recordé muchas
cosas: primero,
a mi profesora
de
Avanzado,
Pilar
Morillo,
aconsejándome
sobre el examen;
luego, a mis
padres diciéndome que el examen era también una
oportunidad para viajar al Reino Unido; y, finalmente,
a mi hermano, hace dos años, animándome a estudiar
en Diario en el BRITÁNICO. En ese momento, el deseo de
ganar la beca se convirtió en posibilidad, pero no lo creí
hasta la premiación. Agradezco al BRITÁNICO por dos
años que disfruté mucho, por la enseñanza de calidad
que me brindó y por la oportunidad que me ofrece ahora.
¡Lleva al BRITÁNICO contigo!
En el mes de abril se inició el Tour de universidades 2009

In-Service Methodology Workshops
for 2008 BRITÁNICO Teachers
The Teacher Training Team - Dorothy Abanto, Irina Castro and Ivy Diez- ran simultaneous workshops in San Borja, San Isidro and
Miraflores on 30 April. The sessions focused on key methodological issues and were most successfully carried out with substantial
contributions from the 78 highly enthusiastic teachers who attended.
Curso para profesores
TKT Partially On-line
Como es de conocimiento general, venimos ofreciendo regularmente el programa de capacitación
externa con cursos dirigidos especialmente a profesores. Este 18 de abril se inició con éxito
nuestro curso Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) en la modalidad Partially On-line (con sesiones en
línea, así como sesiones presenciales).
El curso está dirigido a profesores que deseen obtener conocimientos base sobre la enseñanza
de inglés como lengua extranjera y/o actualizar sus conocimientos sobre las últimas tendencias
en el mundo del ELT. Al mismo tiempo, el curso los preparará en caso de que quieran rendir el
examen internacional de la Universidad de Cambridge.
Para mayor información sobre este y otros cursos, puedes consultar nuestra página web www.
britanico.edu.pe, llamar a nuestra central de informes al 615 3434 o escribirnos a [email protected]

¿Qué es un Reader?
Un Reader es un libro cuyo nivel de inglés ha sido adaptado y simplificado al
nivel de los estudiantes al que está dirigido. Es así como un estudiante de nivel
Preintermedio, por ejemplo, puede leer su libro favorito en inglés.
La lectura es una de las mejores maneras de aprender nuevo vocabulario e ir
internalizando las estructuras gramaticales del idioma.
Por eso, a partir de este año el BRITÁNICO incluye Readers en su programa de
Juniors y en la fase Avanzada.
Para el programa de Juniors tenemos:
• Challenges 1 – Daniel Radcliffe
• Challenges 2 – Walkabout
• Challenges 3 – The Swiss Family Robinson
Para la fase Avanzada tenemos:
• Great Expectations de Charles Dickens.

“A Tolerable Planet: What is the use of a house if you
haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?”
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
•
By Patricia Muñoz, Camacho Deputy Head of Centre
As part of our ongoing role in the preservation of our planet, we decided to
celebrate its day with an awareness raising activity amongst our students: They
prepared and displayed on the classroom board not only a set of beautiful,
creative and well diagrammed posters inviting all of us to recycle and care
about nature, plant trees, etc., but a very clear message for everybody. All this
also aroused interesting discussions during their lessons, making use of the
language they were learning. Once again, our students worked on making
people aware of the responsibility every one has, to heal or at least to soothe
the “pain” we are inflicting on our dear planet. This was their message
“DO IT NOW BECAUSE IT’S GETTING LATE!”
Thanks to our teachers, Lourdes López, Amalia Mesia and Erika Rivas and their
students for their enthusiasm in this activity. In the picture, some students and
their posters.

St. Patrick’s day at BRITÁNICO Pueblo Libre
•
By Karen Montesinos, Pueblo Libre Deputy Head of Centre
St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and the Irish people. He died on March 17th 461 A.D. and the anniversary of his death
is celebrated as St. Patrick’s Day. Today it is commemorated by the Irish as well as many people around the world with parades,
parties, wearing of green, Irish songs and jigs. We joined this celebration and our students from Infants, Pre-kids and Juniors
worked with some amusing activities that made them feel part of this worldwide festivity.

By Elizabeth Nuñez Del Prado, San Isidro Teacher
A group of F2 and J5 students commemorated Saint Patrick’s
day. Here we have some comments about the celebration:
“Saint Patrick’s day is celebrated on March 17th which has
been observed as a religious holiday for over a thousand years
in Ireland. However, the first Saint Patrick’s parade didn’t take
place in Ireland, but in the USA”.
Marco Ch, Roxana B, Karen and Amparo C. (F2).
“Last month we commemorated Saint Patrick’s Day with an
exposition about his life and typical dishes you can eat as
part of the celebration. It was good because it gave us the
opportunity to discover important events and also we could
find out and share information. It was great!”

Oasis in Lima

By María Angélica Pérez, Lima Teacher
Mayo • Junio 09
Lima has been honoured with the visit of some great
performers and bands in the last months and one of these
was the British rock band “Oasis” who gave a successful
performance on the 30th of April. At BRITÁNICO Lima we had
a session called “singing with Oasis” with our students. They
were invited not only to sing but also to learn some techniques
to improve their pronunciation and listening skills through
songs. In this session, our students showed how much they
like and know about this popular band by answering a quiz
and singing their songs with great enthusiasm.

Extracurriculares
Una vez más, se abrieron las puertas de los talleres de
manualidades de nuestro programa Tiempo libre para recibir
a entusiastas alumnos interesados en participar en diversas y
atractivas propuestas que se les ofreció este mes. Como ya es
característico para la ejecución de cada sesión, los materiales
y accesorios son proporcionados por el BRITÁNICO, y los
asistentes retribuyen esta acción con su mejor esfuerzo.
Dimos inicio a estas actividades visitando el centro de Surco,
donde preparamos un cuadro con una novedosa técnica
que consistía en pintar hojas naturales para luego componer
distintas y coloridas formas, que sorprendió gratamente a
sus creadores por los logros obtenidos. Después estuvimos
en el centro de Lima, y trabajamos un práctico portacelular
de mesa, para lo cual los participantes pintaron una caja
de trupán, y luego cosieron y ensamblaron un simpático
muñeco para alegría de ellos. Ya en el centro de San Isidro,
se creó mucha expectativa por la preparación de un delicioso
postre: pie de guanábana, y el resultado fue muy agradable,
pues satisfizo el exigente paladar de nuestros estudiantes.
Una jornada muy reveladora tuvimos en Pueblo Libre, donde
los participantes no solo produjeron sus calidoscopios, sino
que también crearon variedad de bellos diseños en p
papel

con estampados multicolores que podrán utilizarlos

¿QUÉ PASA EN LOS CENTROS?
BRITÁNICO SAN BORJA
What I like best about my job
•
By César Rivas Plata, Head of Centre
Mayo • Junio 09
A number of years ago
(lots of people know
how many…but I won’t
tell), I started studying
at the BRITÁNICO. It was
very different from my
previous English learning
experience: my teachers
enjoyed their work!!
… So, after completing
my advanced courses, I started working as a teacher in the
Miraflores branch to try an activity that was so different from
my university studies (dentistry!!)… Having a nice boss and
colleagues made me think about making a career at this great
institution, so I did.
BRITÁNICO News

It has been three years now since I started being Head of San
Borja branch. The basic organisation seemed to be similar to
other centres but then you realize that each group of people
has different characteristics. San Borja could be summarized as
an amazing centre: Qualified, enthusiastic teachers (extremely
kind and polite I should say), very participative students, and
super smart, savvy, dedicated staff (deputies & administrative
personnel). It is truly a joy working with each of them… With
all these professional people at my side my job becomes easy
and enjoyable… I am very lucky!!

1997
By Gina García,
Deputy Head of
Centre
How
long
have
you been studying
at BRITÁNICO San
Borja? How much
do you know about
this language school?
What about the staff?
How much has it
changed? You will find
some very interesting
and
surprising
information in this
article.
2000
2004
Let’s go back in time…
1997. In that year,
operations in San Borja started. Not only did students have
a new place to study and learn one of the most fascinating
languages in the world, but also, they found a new place to
share experiences, ideas and most importantly, culture.
However, this centre now is very different from that time.
There are 36 spacious classrooms, specially designed to hold
25 students each and create the most comfortable learning
atmosphere. Our reception desk is one of the biggest too and
of course, each receptionist is willing to help you whenever
you need.
Other facilities that our branch offers you are a well-equipped
Self Access Centre with a great variety of books, readers
and reference books as well as CDs and videos to help you
improve and develop your skills in your learning process; our
auditorium, where students can be witnesses to some of the
most interesting plays, concerts and other artistic events;
and finally, the cafeteria where you can have a snack after
enriching lessons.
Last but not least, our teachers are,really committed,
responsible and professional people whose work is dedicated
to all of you.
We have had a good number of achievements in San Borja: a
steadily increasing number of students, the ISO certification
and the possibility of giving the best conditions for the
comfort and security of our students and workers. I share all
these goals with my colleagues.
So -going back to the title of this article- I can say that what
I like best about my job is the people I work with and the full
range of opportunities the BRITÁNICO has given me in all the
years I have worked here. It is sometimes tough work with
long days, but I have learned to love it for what it is.
Would you like to be part of our team one day?
Here in San Borja, our goal is to provide our students with
everything you need: a nice place to study and make friends,
teachers that will guide you in your learning process and most
of all, offering you a first-class service.
Teaching advanced students: What a
challenge!
• By Martha Lynch
When I first started teaching the advanced level here at the
BRITÁNICO, I knew I was in for a bewildering yet exciting
adventure. I knew that a heavy weight had been placed upon
my shoulders and it was up to me to step up and accept the
challenge.
Also as a teacher it is necessary to sharpen our skills and
expand our knowledge bank in order to give the proper
advice and guidance. Helping students with exercises from
the book is always great but it never hurts to think outside the
book for a moment and look up additional material to help
understand a specific problem.
Teaching advanced courses is definitely a hard task for both
students and teachers. That is why teachers should praise
their students if they do well as well as encouraging them
to keep trying to overcome those tougher areas. As for the
teacher, nothing is better praise than watching your students
receive an FCE diploma or maybe go to the UK also!
Believe in your students and they
won´t let you down
•
By Juan Allauca, Teacher
As teachers, we should be innovative enough to broaden
the range of our activities as well as being supportive and
resourceful in order to back students up and provide help. At
the same time, it’s essential to enable students to work on
their own to develop autonomy and take some responsibility
for this ongoing learning process. In addition, it’s worth
creating a motivating, disciplined, businesslike atmosphere in
class so that they can work more industriously.
Keeping this in mind and assuming that the sky is the limit,
I involved my Advanced 4 group in an activity called “The
Hat Parade”. Having sold the idea to the students, we agreed
to join forces and, without sophisticated resources but with
loads of enthusiasm, prepared a successful show.
During the show we could witness lively students wearing
snazzy hats and chatting excitedly about what they had done
to turn plain hats into designs which were all the rage. By the
end of the show, not only there was a feeling of achieving
something worthwhile but students were exposed to a
different approach to learning and success was reinforced.
For this reason, bear in mind that students can do wonders,
just give them a try.
Mayo • Junio 09
Students are trusting you
to guide them through
the arduous process of
mastering the language
and that is what makes
it become a challenge,
a learning challenge.
But you must remain
calm and start by sizing up where we stand in the different
learning skills: Reading, Grammar, Listening, Speaking and
Writing. Of course, in every group you’ll encounter strengths
as well as weaknesses. Since most of the advanced students
are looking forward to the FCE, we must try to turn those
weaknesses into strengths and those strengths into sharp
knowledge tools.

Observing Lessons… Why???
•
By Jeannette Jiménez, Deputy Head of Centre
You must have seen my
colleagues or me entering
your classrooms, sitting in
a corner and writing down
what is happening during the
lesson. This is one of the main
responsibilities -my favourite
one I would say- Heads and
Deputy heads of centre
have in order to promote
professional growth.
During these visits, students show different reactions: some
of them invite me to work with them -thinking I am a
latecomer-, others keep quiet thinking I am observing and
evaluating them, and the most daring ask me questions such
as: “Excuse me, how do you say…?”
Seeing students enjoying their lessons and being totally
involved, using the language effectively and witnessing how
well prepared BRITÁNICO teachers are is a highly rewarding
experience especially when they put into practice what has
been suggested on the basis of previous observations.
The only purpose of these visits is to maintain the quality
of lessons at all BRITÁNICO branches in order to show our
students how professional and devoted to teaching our
teachers are.
Working as a team!!
•
Staff Administrativo
Hace dos años atrás, la Alta Gerencia del BRITÁNICO decidió
trabajar para obtener el Certificado ISO 9001: 2000... ¡Todo
un reto!
En ese entonces, para nosotros, como para la mayoría de
colaboradores de la Asociación, el tema no era tan conocido,
por lo que tuvimos un curso de inducción.
Es así que en setiembre del 2007, fruto de una dedicación
constante, logramos obtener exitosamente la ansiada
Certificación. No quisiéramos dejar de mencionar que a partir
de esa fecha, venimos trabajando con el mismo compromiso
de garantizar una adecuada y eficiente atención a nuestros
alumnos, tratando en todo momento de superar sus
expectativas.
My role as a teacher
•
By Giovanni Quiroz, Teacher
Over the last 6 years as a teacher
here at the BRITÁNICO, I have played
multiple roles in my relationship with
the students -as an organiser when I
make my students get really involved in
what they have to do in a lesson or as a
controller when I need my students to
pronounce correctly.
I strongly believe that as an English
teacher I can’t make students good speakers (readers, writers, etc.) of
English just by explaining English to them. I have the responsibility of being
a motivator, a guide, a prompter, monitor, participant, etc., and of making
my students be part of this active learning principle, providing a good
environment for them and making English study as interesting and attractive
as possible.
Undoubtedly, I love being part of this marvellous team called BRITÁNICO.
Thanks a lot!!!
Approach applied at the
BRITÁNICO
•
The communicative
approach
applied
at the BRITÁNICO
focuses
on
students
rather
than on teachers.
My
students’
contribution is an
important factor in their own development
in the learning process. I regard my role as a
teacher as someone who orientates, motivates,
and helps them to take on responsibility for their
own learning inside and outside the classroom.
Work hard, teach right
•
Just a teacher? I don’t think so!
•
By Graciela Chang, Teacher
After devoting myself to my line of work for over 10 years, I can claim that
being a teacher is a multifaceted profession. Being an English teacher implies
having lots of “personalities” -don’t be scared, not in a pathological way!I’m a guide, counsellor, psychologist, model, frustrated actress, comedian,
excellent mime artist, film director, judge, lawyer, detective, strict lieutenant,
disc jockey and even a mediocre singer!
Am I not fortunate to have a job like this? One of my favourite activities in
class is role play because the students practise what they’ve been learning and
use it in real life situations. Here they have the chance of showing different
“faces” too. When I watch them improvising creative, funny conversations
and enjoying themselves, I can confess that this is one of the reasons why I
do what I do.
“What do you do?” people ask me. “I’m an English teacher,” I answer. “How
interesting! Where do you work?” they say. “BRITÁNICO San Borja,” I say
proudly. “Wow!” they exclaim in admiration. And that’s how I feel to belong
to this wonderful team, BRITÁNICO San Borja, my second home.
By Gleni Carrera, Teacher
By Jorge Tafur, Teacher
Team spirit in San
Borja is wonderful.
There really is a sense
of service from the
heart and I can tell
you without doubt
that it is more than
just a place to work;
I really think of my
colleagues and staff as my very own family.
As a BRITÁNICO teacher I am able to make
people learn and enjoy doing so. I feel like an
ambassador of good will always on stage (the
classroom). Students can see that as a team we
are united and have known for years the kind of
service we give which makes them choose the
BRITÁNICO as their permanent place to study
English, thus becoming part of our extended
family.
