Greetings from Turkey

Hi everyone! I am having a great holiday here in Turkey. It is a fantastic country and everyone should come here.

Only problem is that the keyboards are so different here. For example I keep typiıng the letter "ı" when I should type "i". A typical mistake.

Here's an exercise for Level 3: Shopping, on the "Go4English" site. Try it and as usual, leave a comment. Tamam?

See you next week. - Mike

Italian Election Special - 2

To level 4 and above: See the latest BBC report on the Italian election campaign. Click on the video link and watch BBC correspondent Christian Fraser. What are his conclusions? Put your answers in a comment.

Also, look at the features and analysis. Click on Italian voters' views. Do any of them surprise you?

Level 5 (Wed/Fri 18h-21h; Sat 14h30-17h30): For this week's class listening exercise we will do something else, probably Domestic News. Let's get away from politics!

kind regards,

Mike :-)
