Just returned from Prague!

Hello, students!

Well, Prague was exciting. We walked all over the city and saw lots of beautiful buildings. The setting is a bit like Budapest, but lots of things are different. And the beer is heavenly!
Before Prague, I went to a teacher training "camp" in the southern Czech Republic. I met lots of people, most of them teachers like me. We shared ideas and stories, and learned about Ireland past and present.

What about you? What have you been doing this summer?

Here I go again!

Hello, students!

I hope you are enjoying the long summer days, but don't forget, we just started the month of August. What are you doing in English? I hope you are reading something good, or listening to English lyrics in your favorite music.

Next week I will be in the Czech Republic at a teacher training camp. The main topic is Celtic culture -- all about Ireland: the country, its history, music, dance, and language. I want to meet new people and learn about teaching methods, too. Most of the participants are from the Czech Republic, but some are from Hungary, Poland, and other countries.

I will write about my experiences when I come back.



Keep on studying!
