Bad news – the summer holidays are over :/

back to school… said no teacher ever. And no student ever, I guess…
But let’s face it – another school year has just begun, and what we need to do is to squeeze as many good things as possible out of it :)

See you soon guys :)

Thumbs up to English at our school:)

A big fat THANK YOU to all my students who took part in making the videos!
