If you are preparing for the EOI inglés exams in September, make sure you pay attention to the exam changes. In fact, we all know that the only predictable thing about the EOI system is that it is completely unpredictable.
Unsurprisingly, this year is no different – last-minute changes to the assessment criteria, alterations to the exam times, and amendments to the exam task types, all make this year a recipe for disaster. Well done La Junta – your incompetence and lack of pedagogical knowledge continue to reign!
However, perhaps there is some light at the end of the tunnel, you will need to employ more people to deal with the massive volume of complaints that will hit your doors in Septemeber, and again in October. Now is the time to figure out your damage limitation strategy, because you are going to find it very difficult to rationalise your decision to change the exam at the end of an academic year.

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!
Well, experientially speaking, my ´new me´ lasts about 2-4 weeks. However, in this very short space of time, I can feel smug about trying to save the polar bear, sticking to the recommended amount of daily alcohol consumption, and eating spinach.
How about you? Do you start every new year with your best foot forward? Do you join in and make resolutions to improve yourself and your life? If so, perhaps some of these phrases will be useful.

If you want to learn more things about New Year´s resolutions, take a look at the New Year´s Resolutions section of the Inglés Málaga blog
Firstly, a resolution is a promise that you make to yourself which you hope will improve your life in some way.
Secondly, I think resolutions are constructive as they enable you to think about what you want out of life rather than be directed by the humdrum of daily life. Having said that, they aren’t easy to stick to.
Finally, it is said that the most common resolutions people make are connected to the categories of: health, finance, career, family, and happiness. In light of this, I’m going to do the same. How about you? Are you going to make any resolutions? Any tips for sticking to them?
