Good Bye Everyone!
Hello to Lidia and all of our World Service readers,
First of all, I must say a huge thank you to Lidia for blogging so regularly. I know that you have found her blogs as interesting as I have, and she has told us a lot about her life, her dreams and her experience of learning English. I can safely say that her English has improved while she has been blogging: her sentence structure is better and she uses a wider vocabulary. I noticed several adverbs (certainly, definitely, fortunately) used to start sentences in the last couple of blogs! And the last blog was absolutely great! There were one or two small errors, but a very big improvement since the beginning of March! Superb work! Well done. I hope you will continue to work on your English because you have made such good progress, and if you continue at this rate, who knows what you could achieve? It’s a hard task to blog every week when you are busy with a job, and I really appreciate the effort Lidia made to stay in touch with all of us. Thank you again, it’s been great working with you!
Now, to everyone else who reads the blogs and sends in comments I must also say thank you for all of your efforts. I do read all of the comments, and I feel so sorry that I can’t send individual replies to you, because your comments are so animated and interesting. To tell you the truth, I hope this is not really good bye, because I would so much like to do this teacher blog again! I’ve enjoyed interacting with everyone from so many different countries. It’s been such a privilege to meet all of you, and learn about your lives. Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up with all of you again!
The last thing I have to say is that for the time being, this will be my last blog. I’m going on holiday tomorrow with my family to Mallorca in Spain, and I won’t be able to blog again. I’m looking forward to relaxing for about ten days…eating some nice seafood and walking on the beach… I’m not sure if it will be warm enough to swim in the sea…I guess my kids won’t mind trying it out though!
I wish everyone success and happiness in both your private and professional lives; take care until the next time we meet!
Lots of love and best wishes to everyone,
