The school year is over!

I just wanted to congratulate everyone for the effort you've made this year because I'm sure that, no matter the results, you have tried to do your best!

My main aim this year has been to transmit my enthusiasm and love for the English language and I hope you will take that with you forever, to help you keep on learning in the future. I will also keep working and improving; having students like you has encouraged me to try to be a better teacher. I will miss you!

Congratulations to all those who passed all parts, and courage to all those who need to retake some parts in September. 

DO NOT throw in the towel, keep working during the summer and we'll see each other in two months' time!

The blog will be available during the summer so try to use it to practise all the skills you may need to reinforce; it can be a very useful tool to revise all the grammar points we have dealt with throughout the school year, and also to find useful activities of all kinds.

...and BE HAPPY!! ;-)

    Nigeria abductions: Vows to remember Chibok girls

    Protesters around the world have vowed to remember the girls abducted by the Nigerian militant Islamist group Boko Haram one year ago. 
    A procession was held yesterday in Nigeria's capital, Abuja, with 219 girls taking part to represent each missing girl. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the world must "never forget the kidnapped Chibok girls".The mass abduction sparked global outrage, with nations including the US and China vowing to help find them.There have been reported sightings of the girls, but none has been found. Boko Haram say the kidnapped girls have converted to Islam and been married off. One witness told the BBC that she saw more than 50 of them alive three weeks ago in the north-eastern town of Gwoza.
