Sehar Dawar tells us her experience in the school and in our city Seville.

IES Cantillana

My name Sehar Dawar and I am from India. I have been a language assistant at IES Cantillana for two consecutive academic sessions now. My experience of working here has been incredible.

Everything always works very systematically here. The students are keen to learn English, they really look forward to the English classes and they are very well behaved.

All the teachers have always extended their hand in helping me and have been welcoming. They have supported me greatly in planning classes as well as during the classes.

EvenI had the opportunity to present my culture to the students and teachers through presentations and other activities.

I take the train to Cantillana as I live in Seville. The commute is super easy and comfortable. I was able to meet many more auxes in Seville from around the world and this year with covid restrictions easing down we were able to travel and explore so much.

Seville is a perfect blend of everything, it is a perfect city for a thorough Spanish experience. The weather is great, the people are very kind and the food is very diverse. It is very easy to take flights and trains from here to practically everywhere.

This program has taught me so much and helped me evolve not just on my path of becoming a teacher but also as a person. I gained friendship and experience that I shall carry with me forever . So glad that I could be a part of this.


For many years now, our environment has been facing many problems. These problems have worsened up over the years because of human activities. Our students had put up some works, displaying this problem.

ANLs teachers prepared different activities related to this topic.

1º ESO

Students of 1º ESO learned the importance of recycling in ARTS (collage) and EF (sports with recycled materials)

These are some of the creative works made by our students:


The students were shown a video «WHAT IS NOISE POLLUTION?». Then, they talked about this problem and made a list of ways to reduce noise pollution.

2º ESO


The students made informative murals about the use of water in the Islamic culture. These information included about the irrigation systems introduced by the Arabs and different types of irrigation systems.

3º ESO


Students investigated about the Sustainable Development Goals 2 and 13 and they published the results on a blog and posters like these. Also, they presented this project at Feria de la Ciencia.


Students recorded a video trying to make the society aware of the importance of protecting and saving the environment.


This subject took up the topic of Ocean Pollution, creating a giant mural and posters. Plastic is flooding the oceans and killing fish.

Students of 3º ESO in class, making the mural that has been sent to the program #MensajeAlOcéano . This is a nationwide online campaign that is open to everyone between the months of January and April 2022. Its objective is to give visibility to the ocean and to propose and carry out actions or activities that contribute to improve its environmental status. Students participated in this programme very enthusiastically .

4º ESO


Students studied about the environmental problems caused because of industialization. They made posters about these problems and the impact of the Industrial Revolution and its consequent industrialization and imperialism on various aspects of the environment.

This integrated bilingual unit has been useful for students because they studied the horrible impact that man actions can be in the environment.



On January 30th, the anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi, the International School Day of Non Violence and Peace is held. It is a good opportunity to educate our students for a better world.

Students in IES Cantillana have celebrated Peace Day making a Crown of Hands. For that, they have used flags of countries all around the word and have written some words related to the peace.

This is the poster they have designed.

caroligian empire 2º eso

The students of the second year prepared a timeline, explaining the series of events of the Carolingian Empire as a part of their English learning in History. They displayed these in a very organized and easy manner.

Los alumnos de 2º ESO han realizado una línea del tiempo explicando los sucesos más destacados del Imperio Carolingio como parte de su aprendizaje bilingüe en Geografía e Historia.

feudalism 2º eso

Our students of the second year, in History, made these leaflets as a part of their bilingual activity. These leaflets include information on some aspects of Feudalism. They presented the information, using the vocabulary words learned in class, in a very attractive way.

Los alumnos de 2º ESO han trabajado sobre el Feudalismo en Geografía e Historia.


3º ESO students have created this interesting STORYTELLING based on the tale Hansel and Gretel. Our language assistant Sehar has adapted this beautiful tale and helped students playing the different characters.

Hansel, Gretel and the witch are the main characters of this traditional tale starring some students who have spent a good time doing this activity and they have learnt a lot. Our language assistant Sehar has become a very good theatre teacher for students.

Hope you enjoy it!
