Thanks very much indeed for all your comments, beginning with an enthusiastic comment from Edoardo in class 3BWF19, and ending with Carlo's (4BTTH19) revelation that he studied the text on "Why Men Don't Iron" for four hours. That is real dedication and encouragement for us all.
Alfredo (4BTTH19) has given us a very useful link indeed: to WordReference.com, an online dictionary between English and Spanish, English and Italian, English and French, and definitions in English only.
And now something for class 3BWF19: (but you might all be interested)
Remember last lesson we looked at a TV series, "That'll Teach 'Em", about an experiment in which 30 modern 16-year-olds spent a month in a 1950s British boarding school? Well, here are two links to the series:
Channel 4 - "That'll Teach 'Em"
"That'll Teach 'Em" Fan Site
We might see a video on education in Britain next lesson.
My next job: to reorganise the lists of links in the right-hand column. I'll do this as soon as I can.
