Go away!

One of the best methods to practise your English is travelling. There are lots of opportunities out there waiting for us to profit from them. Have a look at these, you may be entitled to a European grant, or else you might find a great job abroad!

Grundtvig Workshops, you have all the information in Spanish here.

European Voluntary Service

Academic jobs in the UK


You may be interested in applying for a job abroad, if so, have a look at these Job Hunting Tips on the BBC Learning English Website.

Good luck! See you around!

Happy New Year!

by teachy

Although I think I’ve already told most of you, I wish you a Happy New Year, a happy life! Happiness is this thing we all aim at, but which seems so difficult to achieve. However, on Friday we were talking about this issue and it may not be so hard to get, after all. If you go to the 2º Nivel Intermedio section, you’ll see the online materials we used and some extra ones.

Be happy! See you around!

Merry Christmas!

by teachy

Hi, everyone!

On Wednesday this week (that is, tomorrow) we’ll be celebrating our Christmas party. Remember that you can all take part in the Cooking contest, there will be prizes for the two best sweet and savoury dishes. If you don’t know what to cook, you can find some inspiration in the following websites:

Jamie Oliver’s Christmas Special
The Guardian’s Christmas Recipes
Channel 4 Special on Christmas Recipes
Christmas Cookies from Taste of Home

I’ve also thought of some homework for you to keep up with your English during the holidays. Go to your year’s page to find it.

1º Nivel Básico

2º Nivel Intermedio

So, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, may all your wishes come true.

Take care!

PS – As some of you did last year, you can still write your letters to Santa. Just visit The North Pole to find out how to do it. Ho, ho, ho!

An Apple a Day

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Since we are talking about health issues these days, you may be interested in listening to the Family Health Radio online programmes.

Take care!
