🤔 The debate continues! Do you think aliens are real? 👽 

Earlier this week we shared a video of the debate English assignment where our students had to discuss opinions where aliens are real. 

In this video, our student and friend, Yaz, is on the side of ✅ aliens ARE real ✅

Now that you have seen two different debates, what do you think about the existence of aliens?

🤔 Do you think aliens are real? 👽 

Recently some of our students got to stretch their English skills with a debate project that was out of this world.

Our friend in this video, Andrea, is on the side of ❌ aliens being NOT real ❌ and later this week we will show you another video from the opposite side!

What do you think❓

✨ Congratulations!✨

💖 This week we have some very special students leaving us – Ricardo Diaz Araya and his two daughters Camila and Constanza. 

🤩 They have all been here for 24 weeks and have a made such an impression on us here at GV Victoria. One of Ricardo’s teachers said he has NEVER seen someone improve as fast as Ricardo! 

🤗 This is no doubt, down to his commitment to learning and all the hard work he did in class. Both his daughters have been favourites with both the teachers and the students here in Victoria… One of our instructors said she wishes we could keep them both here forever! 

Good luck back in Chile and thanks for choosing GV!
