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!

Books are fantastic presents

I am a bookworm. I was brought up surrounded by books, and I have always be keen on reading, touching and smelling books. Although my tastes have changed over the years, I still try to read as much as possible.

I´m usually given a book or two for Christmas. And, one disastrous year, under the family Christmas tree, there was a book on trout fishing for me.  I thought, Santa, are you’re pulling my leg, did you not get my letter?

Dear Santa,
This year I have been a very good girl, and I would be over the moon and very grateful if you could give me a 1967 Aston Martin Volante. My brother, on the other hand, has been a very bad boy this year, and he deserves some maths homework or a pair of rubber gloves.

Lots of kisses to the little elf helpers.
Janette O’Carroll

P.S. I can´t stand red, so would you mind giving me a green or blue Volante?
