THIS I BELIEVE
This spring, the bilingual students of IES Jerónimo González and IES Virgen de Covadonga in Langreo, Asturias participated in writing This I Believe essays with the Fulbright España English Teaching Assistant.
This I Believe is a project started in the 1950s in the United States by broadcaster Edward R. Murrow. He invited Americans of all ages to write essays about a personal belief or philosophy, then had them read their essays on his weekly radio program. The project grew in popularity and became an American tradition. Even though Murrow has not been on the airwaves for decades now, American students continue to write and record This I Believe essays.
Now, Bilingual ESO students in Langreo are part of the tradition. They worked during the Spring 2018 trimester to reflect on their beliefs and experiences, develop their knowledge of English grammar, and build their confidence in writing and speaking in English for their This I Believe projects.
