Enjoy your Easter break, everyone!
But … don’t miss opportunities to practise. Are you going anywhere special?
If you are, write about your experiences, either here or in the section on “Our Trips”.
Answer these simple questions:
Where did you go?
Who did you go with?
How did you get there?
What was the food like?
What were the people like…?
Any other questions you can think of?
We look forward to reading about your trip!
The Editor is off to Malaga, Spain, and then for a short drive round southwestern Andalusia. Back on 26 April.

This week we’re talking about stereotypes, typically those around men and women. What are your thoughts? Go to our “Stereotypes” page and join the discussion. However, remember our ‘good habits’ policy: don’t be offensive in any way. Our objective is a useful discussion in which we all learn something.

Monday 20 March was International Happiness Day. According to the World Happiness Report, Norway is the happiest country in the world.
The United Kingdom is at no. 19 in the happiest country rankings. Italy, surprisingly, is at no. 48 – below Uruguay, Qatar, Guatemala, Uzbekistan and Saudi Arabia, among others.
Surprisingly, in view of Italy’s beautiful land- and seascapes, food, artistic heritage and general lifestyle.
So we’d love to hear from you. What makes you happy? Go straight to our “Happiness Is…” page, and add your ideas.
It couldn’t be easier: just go down to the bottom of the page to where it says “Now You Write”, write your comment, fill in your name and email address – which is never made public, by the way – and then click “Post Comment”.
Never worry about mistakes – the Editor can help you with corrections.
We’re looking forward to your ideas of happiness!

Happy New Year 2017! I can still say this even though we are now well into February.
A lot of people have written to us to describe their trips and holidays. So come and join us. It’s easy – click on “Trips” on the main menu, go to the bottom of the page and write about your trip where it says “Now You Write”.
Have you done anything like Margarita’s trip to Dubaii and the Seychelles? Or Valentina’s trip to Mexico and the Galapagos Islands with her husband? Maybe you prefer Anna’s trip to Santiago de Compostela. Wherever you go, we’d love to hear about it!
