Janette at Inglès Màlaga says happy festive holidays

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 challenging, fun and rewarding 2017. 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, and emigrating abroad.  In addition, the Inglés Málaga community has got engaged, got married and had children.  And, last but not least, our language skills have enabled us to help lost tourists, translate for patients in hospital, and break down geographic, religious, cultural and political barriers. Inglés Málaga clients are not average, they are exceptional.

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, it is an honour working with you all!

Yoda is intelligent and wise, but his grammar is mental!

If you watch the Star Wars films, without a shadow of a doubt, you will learn a lot about life, power, greed and the delicious seduction of the dark side, (seriously, who doesn´t want to be Darth Vader?!)

On the other hand, if you copy Yoda´s speech patterns, and his use of grammar and word order, you are definitely going to confuse the hell out of native English speakers.  So Yoda, please, get back to basics and have a look at how to ask  a question.

Education: What is it?

Education: what is it?

Well, it´s a word which uses all of the 5 English vowels. And, phonetically speaking,  it looks like this: /ɛdjʊˈkeɪʃ(ə)n/. In addition, it´s a word that politicians repeat to infinity and beyond during an election campaign.  Finally, it´s something that affects all of us.

OK Janette, but what does it mean?

Well, I have my opinions, but I think this guy has something more interesting to say than me.  If you check out this video, you will improve your English listening and comprehension skills, learn new vocabulary, and you will definitely think. Perfect; bring on the brain shake!
