ÚLTIMAS NOTICIAS (18/01/2016)   >>>    La Agencia me informa que no se pague la facturación de maletas todavía porque Ryanair no tiene precios fijos y en otros vuelos que ellos tienen están cobrando cada maleta facturada de una manera, inclusive con precios diferentes a la ida y a la vuelta.

Hola,
De cara a la reunión del lunes, me gustaría concretar lo siguiente (y que se lo comentaran a sus padres):
1.- Recuerdenles a sus padres los 3 sitios donde pueden ver información del viaje y donde pueden ver las fotos, esto es: site- study trip to the British Isles, blog- Study trip to the British Isles y en español Viaje de estudios-Información para padres.
2.- El vuelo se queda finalmente en 249€ por alumno.
3.- Si se quiere facturar maleta, el alumno pagará adicionalmente 40€ por maleta de 15kg ida y vuelta, o 60€ por maleta de 20kg. 
4. Con lo cual para finales de mes se debe haber hecho el ingreso del 2º pago, que sería (155€ de lo queda por pagar del curso + 249€  del vuelo, es decir: 404€) + la facturación de la maleta de los alumnos que la quieran...
Por cierto, hay que tener en cuenta que en el precio del curso va incluida la excursión a Galway (25€).
5.- Por último, quedaría el autobús, que estamos negociando y que va aparte de la agencia. Si nos mantienen el precio de otros años, sería unos14€ y pico incluido la ida como la vuelta. De todas formas, estamos preguntando por si hubiera otra compañía que nos saliera más económica, pero me extraña.
6.- Como apunte final, recuerdo que le digan a sus padres que si tienen cualquier tipo de duda que se pongan en contacto conmigo bien por correo electrónico o bien concertando una cita.
YA QUEDAN MENOS DE 2 MESES PARA LA PARTIDA!!!!!
Por cierto, los alumnos pendientes de entregarme el DNI renovado o el pasaporte, haganlo lo antes posible.


PROPUESTAS DE ACTIVIDADES:   http://adventurerooms.ie/  & http://leisureplex.ie/bowling/


   


Equipaje de mano  >>  Cada pasajero puede subir a bordo una maleta de mano cuyo peso no sobrepase los 10 kg, con unas dimensiones máximas de 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm, y 1 bolsa pequeña no mayor de 35 x 20 x 20 cm*.

Facturar maletas:

Con respecto a la facturación de maletas, el precio varía dependiendo del peso. La de 15 kg. ahora mismo estaría en 40€ ida y vuelta; y la de 20 kg. en 60€ ida y vuelta. Se supone que ése es el precio, esperemos que no suba conforme se llene el avión!!!

English in Chester's Report for IES Mediterráneo Group

 

Important meeting at the language department to talk about our V Study Trip to the British Isles to Dublin (Easter 2016). 

 



Discovering Dublin (Our Philosophy teacher's hint)


After our success with our IV Study trip to UK: Chester, we are already thinking about next year.



Dublin is the option we have in mind and that most students voted for.


Let's see the advantages and disadvantages:



>>> DUBLIN   (2014-2015 example of one group that went this year). 

If we do it, they will not increase the price of trip, that is, 530€. Therefore, this would be the fifth consecutive year that the total cost of the trip (school + flight + activities + coach to Málaga) is not more expensive than 800€!!!!


+ You pay in Euros, so we don't have to change.

+ The cost of the trip is fair enough.

+ Nice small city  (Tourist information about the city). I have been there several times and I can assure you it is a wonderful city.

+ Possibility to visit the harbour of Howth, the harbour of Dún Laoghaire, Galway or Cork.

+ We have never been there, so students who have participated in our previous experiences could still go.

+ Host families are usually concentrated in an area of the city.

+ The weather may be a bit better than in Edinburgh, but you still have got the four seasons in one day, that is, you can have sun, rain, wind, cold.... on the same day.



+ Its music (one example)


- The flight is around 230€ (that was the cost of the flight this year of the group that went)

Here we are again and so far with year we have been offered 5 proposals (you've got all the information in the attached files). This is my personal piece of advice. On Wednesday during the break at the language department we will have a meeting with all the students interested.


  • CAMBRIDGE   >>>  600€ course + 200€ flight tickets (more or less) + 20€ (bus) = 820€  (it includes trip to London = train to London and day ticket in London)

  • BRIGHTON  >>> 500€ course + 200€ flight tickets (more or less) + 20€ (bus) = 720€ (touristic town with not much too see and we would have to organize  something for the weekend)

  • CARDIFF  >>>>  550€ curso + 200€ flight tickets (more or less) + 20€ (bus) = 750€  (similar to Edinburgh)

  • BRISTOL  >>>> 575€ curso + 200€ flight tickets (more or less) + 20€ (bus) = 750€  (many free activities proposed, the only problem I see is that Bristol is a huge city)

  • OXFORD   >>>  595€ course + 200€ flight tickets (more or less) + 20€ (bus) = 815€ 

So if you are still interested, fill in this form because I need to make a survey to see how many students would go.

Baggage meeting


The travel agency said that every passenger has the right to carry  10 kg as hand luggage with these measures: 55x40x20 cm. The baggage that you check in mustn't exceed 15kg of weight and you will have to pay 30€ per piece of baggage.
Read this document for further details about your luggage.




STUDY TRIP FOR ALBERT'S STUDENTS TO EDINBURGH AT EASTER

 

Possible dates:

One week from Wednesday/Thursday (28th/29th March) to Wednesday/Thursday (4th/5th April)

 

Students who can go:

Those students who work regularly and have a good attitude in the English class, and who are willing to work just a bit during our stay in Scotland. Albert will decide which students can go.

 

Have a look at the leaflet and see details about classes, accommodation, etc.  I think we could go on the trip to the Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond at the weekend (42€).

 

So if you are still interested, fill in this form because I need to make a survey to see how many students would go.

 

STUDY TRIP DIARY

Everyday you will have to write about what you have done at school and in the afternoon.

You’ll finish about any problems at home and about what things were like at home (food, host family…). Here's an example (it is in the attachments).



Today, 24th October, I have been talking with someone from English House and they have sent me these three leaflets:

- a general one about this school year

- Trip to Edinburgh (just the visit and staying at a youth hostel)

- Study trip to Endinburgh (classes, accomodation with a Scottish family in couples & possibility of a trip)

Albert's personal opinion   >>>>>>>>>
The one I would do would be this last option because, as you can see there is almost not much difference in the price you have to pay. Think about it.
