EOI English B2-1 Exam Success: Congratulations Inma

Like most people Inma had butterflies in her stomach before taking her EOI exams.  She worked extremely hard to prepare for her exams and coped really well under a lot pressure.  She, intelligently, ignored my advice to take non-legal drugs before the exam, and passed with flying colours.  Inma took the bull by the horns, faced her fears, and truthfully, deserved to pass.

Achieving your goals is never easy, it takes a lot of hard work, discipline, self-study, dedication and determination.  Achieving things, however big or small, should always be celebrated and congratulated. Well done Inma – you are awesome! I am chuffed to bits for you!

New Year: Open your mind – love to read – love Ted!

As a bookworm, I am mad about reading. Books are educational, informative and entertaining.  They give you the opportunity to experience countries and cultures that you have never been to.  They give you the opportunity to think about things in completely different ways.



Furthermore, reading in English, will quickly help you to improve your language skills and reinforce useful structures, phrases and ideas in context.  In light of this, why not listen to a Ted talks presentation by Lisa Bu who gives us her thoughts about the magic of books? Books can open your mind!

The 3 Kings / Wise Men are coming!

I have ants in my pants because I hope The 3 Wise Men bring me a divorced George Clooney wrapped in a red ribbon.  However, I wish I had been a better person in 2017 because it´s highly likely that they aren´t going to give me anything.

  1. I hope + present tense= a DESIRE
  2. I wish I had been (wish + past perfect) = a REGRET

In recent years, I have received some very bizarre presents!

Christmas quiz – how much do you know about the festive season?

The Nottingham Post, has 15 tough quiz questions about the festive season.  I got 5 correct.  Can you beat my pathetic score? Take the quiz here, and let me know if you are a festive genius, or, like me, a Christmas failure!

Disco Santa is feeling the festive groove

Disco Santa is feeling the Christmas groove.  He has had a very difficult year, and is still trying to get his head around:

  1. The Trump administration
  2. The genocide and ethnic cleansing in, ( to name a few countries) Myanmar, the Yemen, Syria, Sudan and Ethiopia
  3. The political soap opera in Spain
  4. The Paradise Papers
  5. Brexit, and the social value of public referendums
  6. The value of the Bitcoin

Consequently, Santa is taking a break from the unpalatable behaviour of mankind, and he´s celebrating life with his elf friends and some disco. Santa says:  ”Next year, we must do better”.

Santa is legless

Santa has spent too much time with the looney juice, so he is now legless!

Festive drinking

For many people, the festive season usually means more drinking, more eating, more dancing, and less sleeping.  With this in mind, which of the following expressions mean that you have drunk a little more than is socially acceptable?
