News from around the world
For the last few months, countries have seen their governments implement strict lockdown rules in order to combat the pandemic caused by Covid-19. Slowly now, life is getting back on track but with new norms. Schools, shops, bars, restaurants, and several other facilities and services will be allowed to open soon but will be operating under a different set of rules.
I love different cultures, so one of the things that I’m always interested in is visiting galleries and museums. So yesterday, the following article from the BBC caught my eye where the new guidelines are explained whilst referring to museums across Europe such as Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum, the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Denmark's Louisiana Museum, and the Louvre in Paris. For all of you art and culture lovers check out the full article

It has been a tough last few months for everybody but people have proven that we can continue to learn and grow even through lockdown restrictions. I believe everybody should have access to education, especially now more than ever. If you agree with me and would like to practise your English, get in touch for your free session.
Topic of the month- June
This is the time, usually, when people start getting ready for their summer holidays. Even though this year things will be different, it is always useful to know what options are available and how to express our ideas through the correct vocabulary. Before booking anything, you need to think about what type of holiday you wish to have. These are some of the most popular choices that people make:
a beach holiday
a city break (usually 2-3 days spent in a city)
a skiing holiday (during winter!)
an adventure holiday
Once you have decided on the type of holiday, then you need to think about your accommodation. Would it be…
a bed and breakfast
a hostel (cheaper than a hotel)
a self-catering apartment
a tent (camping)
Whatever you choose to do remember to stay safe! However, if you decide to do a staycation, you can explore beauty spots in your own area and enjoy your garden/veranda or local parks.
Get in contact to suggest a 'topic of the month' for July.
New lessons added!
New thirty-minute pronunciation and speaking fluency sessions have been added to accommodate busy learners. Head over to the bookings page to check out all the new additions or click the link below.
Topic of the month-September
September is the month dedicated to education! Every year, after the summer holidays, many students are looking forward to returning to their learning. Reading books becomes a part of people's lives again, especially as the evenings are drawing in earlier. I personally like a lot of different genres, including, both, fiction and no-fiction. I particularly like books that focus on sociological factors and all things related to everyday life and human interaction. If you are a bookworm or simply looking for your next opportunity to be transported somewhere else, check out this article from the BBC with a recommended booklist for 2020. Happy reading!
Topic of the month- January
New Year’s Resolutions
Every January, most people decide to make some changes in order to enjoy healthier and more fulfilling lives. I am a strong believer that it is better to do everything in moderation and try to keep it up throughout the year, rather than go for it only for a month or two, usually January/ February, before returning to our old unhealthy ways. Nevertheless, these are 10 of the most common ‘New Year’s resolutions’ that people say they are going to follow when asked.
Join a gym/ lose weight or tone up
Eat more healthily
Drink more water
Save (more) money
Take up a new hobby
Drink less alcohol
Find a new job/ change career
Strike a better work-life balance
Travel more/ Relax more
What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2021?
Due to the terrible 2020 we had, I can safely say that everybody will be wishing for something that some of us, if not most of us, used to take for granted before; our freedom!
International Women's Day- 8th March
International Women's Day is a day on which we celebrate the historical, political and cultural achievements of women. We also highlight the need for further improvements in rights and gender equality. If you are interested in this topic, head over to the History and Politics lessons where you can book your session and discuss further.
You can also check out the official website of International Women's Day for further information https://www.internationalwomensday.com/
Every year we commemorate the armistice signed between the Allies of WWI and Germany. It did not end the war completely but it declared ceasefire whilst the permanent peace terms were being discussed. It was signed at 11am on the 11th of November 1918 and in honour of the people that lost their lives, a National Service is held at the Cenotaph in London on the Sunday closest to the 11th of November every year.
