England are through to the semi-finals

It wasn´t a dream, it wasn´t a hallucination: the England football club are through to the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.  It´s a huge effort, it´s an enormous achievement, and considering that last time this happened was in 1990, I have every right to feel dizzy with excitement and hope for a stunning semi-final victory.

I watched the match with a group of young English lads who were fresh-faced, just out of high-school, and innocent of the years of heartache that the majority of English football fans have experienced over the last three decades.  They truly believed that England could do it.  I, on the other hand, willed myself to quash the stomach-wrenching feeling that England would, once again, under-perform.

So, the fear of defeat is broken, and I thank every single one of those lads who helped me to ride the exhilarating wave of football emotion. Come on England!

World Cup quarter-finals 2018

The World Cup 2018 tournament has been dramatic.  I have seen some brilliant football and some awful football.  I have watched high-ranking world-class teams crash out of the tournament during the group stages and three agonising penalty shootouts. As a sport lover and a huge football fan, it´s simply impossible to describe the illogical emotions that you go through when you watch and will your team to perform to the very best of their ability.  It´s a raw emotion, that  brings out the very best, and the very worst in people.

In general, I´m crazy about watching football because you get lost in the moment, cognitive reasoning is thrown out of the window, nothing outside of the pitch matters, and for a brief moment, you allow yourself to believe that anything is possible.  Come on England, I believe.

Well done Paula and Ana, I´m so proud of your achievement.  Both of you are nothing short of brilliant. Spectacular!

”Hi Janette, I´m over the moon because I have just found out that I have passed my EOI C1 exam.  It would have been impossible without you.  Thank you again for your classes and for your support! I have had thousands of English teachers during my life, and you are by far the best. You don´t just teach English, you teach how to pass each part of the exam. In fact, I use your techniques to study the other foreign languages I am learning. It´s an honour for me having been one of your students, and I always recommend your classes.” Paula

The winning team?

World Cup 2018 is just around the corner!

The World Cup 2018 is just around the corner, and I have ants in my pants to get hooked on this world tournament.

I am excited to see the world´s top male football athletes push themselves to their physical and mental limits; I am excited to see individual talent working together as a team to achieve a collective dream; I am excited to support a tournament that has the potential to break racial, religious and cultural discrimination, and, I am excited to learn more about Russia. But, I will not forget the long list of human rights abuses that have been committed under Putin´s governance. So, do get excited with me and support your teams with pride, grace and dignity, but, say no to racism,  xenophobia and discrimination.
