"Thank you...thank you so much"!!!
Hi Amy, BBC team and friends around the world,
Has everyone ever read “The Little Prince”?
There’s a part in which he said he wanted to visit a friend but he didn’t want to surprise him because if his friend knew in antecipation of his visit, his friend would be happier since that moment.
It’s the same with me, I can’t wait to reach the climax publishing my last post with my surprise by the sound of my favourite band J Quest- “Do Seu Lado” in the background here. Don’t miss it! Here it goes:
Well friends...the words fail me, so...I’ll just let my heart says by itself.
It has been a fascinating month. Have you ever watched Cinderela? It’s like that.
I’ve had a fairy (Amy)and a team (BBC LE team)to help my dreams come true.
I was the student blogger, a student abroad (in England and in India at the same time), a traveller, a counsellor, a poet, a writer, a photographer.
I’ve tried to do my best and I think I’ve done all to make hay while the sun shines.
Anyway, it was not so hard. It was pure pleasure! Don’t be afraid to participate in the competition. Everybody is so nice with us.
I’d like to do even more. I’d like to show you all my role plays (that are more comedies than everything) in several situations from my daily professional routine and give you my humble tips on how to practise speaking but I haven’t got a clue how to send the audio files.
Even so, I’m profoundly grateful for what I consider an intensive English course firstly to Paul, to the BBC LE team, to the people who perhaps don’t appear in “meet the team” but also work hard( the engineers, for example), also to BBC journalists because I learn a lot with them too reading the news, to all the teachers especially Stephen who was the caring teacher who gave me confidence to write comments initially, to all the teachers which blogs I have been reading: Samantha, Jo, Alex. And my sweet teacher Amy who was more than a teacher but a doctor who has diagnosed all my weakness and has smartly gone straight to the point. There was no need to ask any question. She knew everything about me as student. I’m very happy to have had you as my teacher Amy. I wish you and your family (including the newborn baby very soon) all the best in life.
What to say to my faithful readers? Always so kind with their as always supportive comments...a kiss for every one of you.
Friends...The show must go on as Pink Floyd said ...so, I’d like to welcome Satya, the new student blogger who, for our happiness, is from India. Hello Satya, have fun!
At last, I have to watch the clock because here in Brazil the dreams end at midnoon and not midnight. We have a lunch to serve after all... :-D
And I’ll finish this virtual trip with the same phrase Cinderela said to her fairy when the dream was over:
“Thank you...thank you so much!”
Truckloads of kisses
