I, like 5 million people in the UK, have given up alcohol for January. After a very overindulgent December, my body has said: ” Enough Janette, it´s time to get on the wagon and stay off the booze for a month”.
How about you? What are you giving up this month to kick-start some healthy habits?
So, the 3 Wise Men have come and gone and, obviously, all three of them need to go to the ear doctor (an Otolaryngology (pronounced oh/toe/lair/in/goll/oh/jee) because I specifically requested, for the 5th year running, a 1967 Aston Martin, a pub-sized pool table, and a 1950´s juke box, and instead, they gave me a pair of socks with a note on them that said: ‘’Get running couch potato!’’
Truth be told, I am very keen on my socks, and, they are called ‘Bobby Dazzlers’ which sounds totally cool, wouldn´t you agree?
Ok, spill the beans, what did you get?
Janette would like to wish all her clients and the larger international Inglés Málaga community a very fun and jolly festive season. It has been a fun and rewarding 2018. We have improved our English language skills to achieve a lot of personal and professional objectives, including passing official exams, getting better-paid jobs, setting up businesses, participating in international conferences, and emigrating abroad.
In addition, the Inglés Málaga community has got engaged, got married and had children. Our language skills have enabled us to help lost tourists, translate for patients in hospital, and break down geographic, religious, cultural and political barriers.
On a personal note, I have learnt a lot more than I have taught, and without a shadow of a doubt my life is infinitely richer as a result of my clients. Thank you!
I have friends who are visiting Málaga in October, and they have asked for my advice regarding places to eat good-quality inexpensive food. As I am not a food lover, I don´t have a clue what to recommend. Please help, what are the must-try eateries in Málaga?

Lecturer in Education, University of Bath :
Few would disagree that a good education means more than just exam results. The benefits of non-academic experiences – from sports competitions, charity events, or school plays – have been shown to lead to more than just happy memories.
Evidence shows that taking part in extracurricular activities can support academic attainment, even into adulthood, as well as bringing personal benefits such as social skills, improved well-being, and self-confidence.

In Spain, the summer officially starts with the night of Mr San Juan. Historically speaking, I have no idea about the origins of this festival, or if it means anything significant. However, what I do know is that, not only is it a great event to spend the night on the beach, but it also is the perfect opportunity to let your hair down and go swimming under the moon and stars.
Sur in English reports:
A sighting of a three-metre-long blue shark caused alarm on the beaches of Fuengirola on Sunday, forcing a four-hour ban on swimming.
Several bathers warned of the presence of a shark only several metres from the shore in Torreblanca at around 12.15pm.Following the spread of several different videos on social media, the Guardia Civil sent out a patrol to find the shark, but failed to locate it.
The red flag was raised until around 5pm, when it was downgraded to yellow. According to several sources, the authorities tried to capture the shark and return it to deeper waters, but were unsuccessful in their search.
Malaga’s marine rescue service, Aula del Mar, said that the presence of blue sharks is not uncommon on the Malaga coastline. Juan Jesús Martín, biologist and director of the centre, explained that this species is the only type of shark that regularly ventures in shallow waters. “It’s not common, but it can happen,” he said.
Martín clarified that the blue shark is one of more than twenty species that live in the Alboran Sea, and although it can venture into areas with bathers, there has never been a documented encounter between the two.
