I love to teach and I love to learn. Over the years I've created hundreds of fun activities that make learning easy. We tried them out over and over again in the hallways, in the garden, in the street and yes, even in the classroom. Many are posted on this blog, "Shakespeare slept here." Many of you may have participated in them. 
I've always been both a teacher and a student in San Francisco, in Mexico and in Madrid. I was an English teacher at UEM for 18+ years. Now I'm happily retired and on to the next adventure.

Spring is here. It's time to get outdoors! Plant something in a flower pot on your terrace or in the garden of your townhouse or ground-floor apartment. You may be lucky and have an expert in the family, an uncle or grandparent who can plant it with you in the family vegetable patch in your hometown. It's time to get back to our roots in our dying agricultural society. Plant some seeds and watch them grow.

You have 4 days off. You have a little free time for a change. Well, if I were you, I'd take this great opportunity to try out a mini-conversation, just a little trial session with a total stranger in English. Pretend you're off in a foreign country, and you can't communicate in Spanish because nobody, absolutely nobody, understands you.

Wherever you are or wherever you're going,

may you have a happy, healthy change of routine.

And while you're having fun and relaxing, you can/could/may/might

want to practice your English, just a little bit.

Enjoy !

I like students who read my blog. I like to see their comments. I also like students who participate it class. That's the best way to learn English. Try it.

You've been studying English for years now, practically all your life. You're an expert at "fill in the blanks" and can look at a "right now" at the end of a sentence and KNOW you have to use a "present continuous" as in "I am reading this blog right now." You can change affirmative sentences to negative and even attack question formation without much mental input. You even read in English when you have to. However, you only have to when your English teacher insists, so you happily cruise through your courses with a minimum effort. A "C" student or "Necesita mejorar"
