This Week


Last week we had fun telling ghost stories at our international book club, next time we’ll be telling jokes – even better!

This week the end-of-term exams are starting, I know you’re all revising hard, remember to ask me if you have any questions.

This week’s joker is easy – write a list of TEN things you can do to learn English better.

Good Luck!
