(Written by Pablo Rioja Arruti. 2nd ESO)

Last week, some students of the 2nd year of Secondary School took the PET exam (Preliminary English Test).

This group of students formed by: Ewen Fortune, Miguel Palomar, Javier Gastaminza, Javier Gutiérrez, Nicolás Aguerrea and Pablo Rioja, went to Eskibel on Friday, 8th of March , accompanied by Mr. Iker Sánchez and some students of the 3rd and 4th grades of the Secondary School that they were going to take the first certification exam.

That day, the group of six students did the speaking test. Personally, at the beginning, I was very scared about that, but then I calmed down because we have done it many times before at school. Also the teachers were so lovely that it made me feel more comfortable and made everything easier.

The next day, Saturday 9, the same students took the following three parts of the test: reading, writing and listening. We met in Eskibel at 8:30, half an hour before the exam began. That day I was not afraid at all, we have already done many exercises like these at school to prepare the exam well.

Finally, I must say that it was a good experience for me and a perfect way to improve my English.
