Students' opinion about the Nueva Colombia school.
The thing I like the most from the school is the social environment, it make us happy, because there, I feel as in my house. My classmates, my friends, my teachers, they make part of my family. Every year of my life have been excellent, they have always finished with good experiences, which have been converted in wonderful stories that make me laugh.

My New School
When people change of school, house, or has to move to another place. They experiment positive or negative emotions like: nervous, sadness, happiness or anxiety.
This institution has and gives an excellent education for its students. Here, there are about 30 classrooms; there are a physic, chemistry, an English lab and other important classrooms. Every class is very interesting because the teachers are clever and intelligent (they're Colombian genius).
For me, the Nueva Colombia School has meant a great opportunity of learning new things. I'm living the last period of a stage in my life.

The French immersion classroom
It is a space in which students from Nueva Colombia school take French and cultural class trough a ludic way. This Project started in 2013; it was directed by the teachers Adriana Conde and Adriana Baron. The classroom is recognized by the Education Bureau and it is evaluated for a coordinator of AISEC which is a company of exchange program.
The classroom is lucky because it has visual, audiovisual materials, etc. It Works in the afternoon and in the morning with students of a contrary scholar shift with two teachers. Foreigner teacher and support teacher, Natalia Garay is the support teacher of the afternoon scholar shift, she told us about her function in this project. First at all, she has to give some reports about the organization of lessons and evidences about the activities done to the Education Bureau (SED). All this work must be done for 6 hours of job as other teachers in the school. Second, she has to take update sessions with British Council and the French Embassy in order to improve the development of her classes into the Immersion classroom.
On the other hand, the French classroom students and teacher have participated in important events. For instance, last year they went to the French Embassy and they had a lunch with the French Ambassador and showed some ecological material done in the school.

School emphasis helps in their future careers
The Nueva Colombia school uses the ecotourism as emphasis, thanks to this aspect the students have deeper knowledge of the theme throughout their academic years. This is applied through the classes, fairs and projects, in which all students must submit to finish the high school in order to show their knowledge in this area.
But…, what happen with this emphasis? We have two hypotheses. First, the ecotourism isn’t applicable for the student’s professional career when they leave the school, we don’t continue using these topics during our lives so, and these projects haven’t been done in a real context. Second, the school doesn’t give us the enough tools for making an excellent business job, if it is suppose that this is an ecological school and we are friend of recycle, why do we continue using many paper?, Why we don’t begin first at all to apply the emphasis in our school.
Something is wrong, and this makes that we don’t meet the goal of having a great emphasis. The solution is very simple, the school has to be focus to improve the project or change the emphasis, and it may be an emphasis chosen by the students that help them in their future careers.
