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!
A new year, a new you!
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.

The craziest suggestion to cure your hangover is to make yourself a vegetable shake. And, although I´m a vegetarian, and I love a great spinach and celery juice, under no circumstances am I going to turn on the blender to pulp a load of greens when my head is already about to explode. It´s a ridiculous suggestion!
So, what’s your hangover cure?
