Blog the Summer

To all students: wherever you are, whatever you are doing, if you have a few spare minutes...]
... Connect to this Blog and use the Comment facility to tell us how you are spending your summer!

Here is a very short list of web sites:

'We're Not Afraid' - Bloggers' response to the terrorist attacks on London. Kindly given to me by Mariangela Dessi of Class S3TTh18.

'The Meaning of Food'. Central to our culture. Kindly recommended by Nik Peachey, formerly of the British Council Naples.

'The Spoken Alexandria Project' - practise your listening, using these Podcasts. Maybe a little advanced, but it will be good for your vocabulary.

Have a very good summer, everybody. I plan to add a few postings about my summer, too. Keep visiting this space!
