Welcome back Linda!
Glad you could make it back. What have you been up to? How are the studies going? I really liked the joke your teacher told you about the “classes” ;)…! So I think you were going to share with us your tips for language learning weren’t you? That would be really cool!
I’m feeling a little run down and overworked at the moment (or did I just party too much on Saturday night! ;). Now I think about it, I remember partying a great deal one Christmas and New Year in Prague many moons ago…in fact I’m sure there are two of those lovely clocks (like the one you posted) in that square (which spins actually…or at least I saw it spin!!!). Man that beer is good and cheap (forgive me, but I am a British guy after all!) What do you do for fun where you live? Or are you studying too much to party?
This week I’m preparing for another conference though this one will be an international one at my school. I will give a presentation again similar to the one I mentioned in my last post. Doing presentations are really good for your own development as they force you to reflect on what your own ideas about a topic are, why you think the way you do and how best you can communicate them. If ever you get the chance, I really recommend doing them, even if they are just for your friends or at school. Making a presentation is an excellent study aid and way of practicing (as is this blog – extremely authentic and natural way of learning isn’t it?). I have seen some interesting presentations posted on You Tube perhaps some of you guys could do that as a form of practicing and post them on the BBC Learning facebook page or something? Hey that’s not a bad idea Joe… wow I'm amazing sometimes...the ideas just keep flowing!
Just wanted to check in really and say hi to you Linda as I hadn’t read your post until after I posted mine last night. Wouldn't want you to think I was a rude guy!
Take Care y’all and adios!
Your homework tonight? Sit back with a nice cuppa, chocolate biscuits and your favourite book or film. Goodnight!
