So here we all are, me here and you there, and heaven knows when we will all actually meet in person again.
Finding myself unexpectedly on a plane from Melbourne to Abu Dhabi on Sunday (see Australia in 5 days!), I thought about how we can all keep in touch, there being no lessons for the duration*, and thought about resurrecting my old blog.
On the next plane, from Abu Dhabi to Amsterdam, I came to the idea to start a completely new one, which for sure will have more features, more fun, more interesting possibilities for us all.
Oh dear, it’s much more difficult than I thought. Just as well I don’t have anywhere to go.
Anyway, I plan to update this at least twice a week, with links to clips, stories, articles, vocabulary – just like a lesson really, except I am here and you are there. Maybe some of you will have cabin fever** and start demanding grammar. Maybe.
I’m counting on you all not just to read this, but to keep me supplied with ideas and requests and Feedback. We are, after all, in this together even though I am here and you are there.
