Good Luck for You All!

School end is near, which means we are getting ready for our deserved holidays. I've enjoyed being your teacher for two years and I've learned a lot with you, too.
I just wanted you to learn to like foreign languages in general and English in particular, because it will open many doors for you. I think you already know how important it is to learn things and have good behavior.
I hope you are lucky in the future and become successful men and women (you deserve it).
I also hope you have good memories of your stay at IES El Fontanal.
For whatever you may need, count on me.
I will miss you a lot!

Great Job!
