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.
TIME to catch up on your reading
Many of you are on vacation. Excellent! You can ignore emails and moodle for a while, changing pace and taking a much needed break. You might be at the beach or out by the pool, in the park or in the garden, at your favorite café or half way around the world. Wonderful!
You now have time to read whatever you want.
Some of you are still at work, teaching intensive courses, taking courses yourselves. If that's your case, come down to the Language Center, Basement Hall Building A and pick up a back issue of TIME magazine, 2013. A friend who has a subscription gave them to me for the book sale in November and March. It seemed like a shame to hold them so long, so I decided to put them out for you to read now. If you want you can return them, or just pass them on. Then remember to come to our big BOOK EXCHANGE & SALE in November.
You can catch up on all the news you missed and practice your English at the same time. And for those on you already on vacation, be sure you do some reading in English. Every little bit helps.
