Read this blog ! Practice your English! Come on ( venga ya)!. No deadlines (fechas tope). No exams. It's just a fun way to learn the language.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
Back to school. Unfortunately, the Christmas holidays are over.
The professors are all back at the U. What about you? Are you in class or are you procrastinating, telling your parents that you don't start till next week and taking a few more days off for a great ski-trip, a few more home-cooked meals and long lazy mornings. Hey, it's time to get back.
What are your New Year's Resolutions? Are you planning to study more, read more, get your assignments done on time? Is it time to finally sign up for the gym, go swimming or jogging regularly, take that bike out every weekend? More exercise, less chocolate, more fun, fewer worries.
What are your big plans for 2014? Maybe travel is in your future. You know you need to practice your English, so maybe you could fit in a trip to England or the US during spring break. Plan ahead. Get that ticket now and save on air fare. 2nd trimester will be over before you know it. If you're an exchange student you need to see Spain. What are you waiting for? Toledo, Segovia, Avila are all nearby. A trip to Granada, Cordoba and Sevilla is a must.
Some advice for 2014. Work hard during the week and travel on the weekends. You can take your friends with you. Enjoy your college experience. Enjoy your free time too.
