The mystery city: NEW CLUE!

Hi, everyone. Long time no see. Well, let's start our game again. Where am I?

Clue 1. English is an official language in this country. Clue 2. Bollywood film industry was born in this city. Comments are eagerly awaited, you know!!!

Fun with English

Hello, everybody. What are you up to these days? It seems to me like ages since we last saw each other. Now I need your comments more than ever since it's the only way we can keep in touch so please, do!!

Well, the aim of this post is to introduce you to a new blog, www.ocioidiomas.blogspot.com, I've just found on the web. It's been created by EOI teachers from Madrid and it's full of ideas and direct links with useful information about leisure time in English. Particularly, I like the links about theatre, conversation groups, free online TV and the quizzes. All the links are listed on the right- hand side of the website.

If you have time, you can watch this video from the 1950s titled "Better use of leisure time". It's hilarious!


Keep in touch!!
