March 2018 Update

Hello everyone. Welcome to “English, Actually”, your online magazine. This is where you can express yourselves.  Write about any of our topics, which you will see listed in the menu bar across the top of this window.

Some of the topics, such as “People”, have sub-topics. Right now, many of us are writing about “Who We Are”, and “Someone We know”. You are most welcome to add your own piece.

It’s very easy to do this. On any page, go right down to the bottom and find the “Now You Write” section. Write your text, follow the instructions, and click “Post Comment”. No problem.

Coming up soon: “Our Favourite Photo”. Look at the “Photos” section for some examples.

And now for the Hero of 2018. This is Nicolo’ in class B1. Returning from his Christmas holiday in Chile, where he had been surfing, he took a fifteen-hour flight from Santiago to Rome. On arrival, he walked straight into his evening class, 6 to 9 p.m., at the British Council. He told us he had not slept for thirty-five hours

That’s  a true hero.


Happy New Year 2018…

… to all our readers. The Editor hopes you have all had a good Christmas holiday.

We look forward to ever more interaction. This is, remember, your space to express yourselves. 

Hero of the Month must be Nicolo’ in class A2. He took a fifteen-hour flight from Santiago de Chile to Rome and walked straight into his evening class, 6 to 9 p.m., at the British Council. He told us he had not slept for thirty-five hours

That’s commitment.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year…

… to all our readers. We, the editor and contributors, hope you are enjoying yourselves wherever you are.

Regular posts will start again from 9 January 2018.

Have a very good time!


Nearly Winter

It’s that time of year again… but is it still autumn, or almost winter? Heavy snow and rain suggests winter, but the autumn colours are still a marvel.

Meanwhile, continue writing for us. People, Places, special Moments and Happiness are our most popular topics. More soon!

Mid autumn

Hello! We’re now well into mid-autumn, with new courses and students. Everyone is welcome to introduce themselves to our pages. All pages allow comments.

Your first stops should be “About Us” > Who We Are”, where you can introduce yourselves. See writing by previous students.

Then look at “Trips”>”This Summer 2017″. Where did you go last summer?

Music too: go to “Music”, then tell us what music  you listen to and who your favourite singers and composers are,

We all look forward to meeting you and learning about your tastes!


Early Autumn..

… and we’re halfway through our September Intensive courses.

There is something for everyone on “English, Actually”. Right now, however, we’re talking and writing about Our Childhoods. So go to the page, join in and have your say.

And while memories of summer travel are still fresh, do share with us any adventures you’ve had. These can be found on our “Trips” page.

See you there!


Welcome Back

… after a well deserved summer break. Temperatures are now back to a comfortable level. And here on “English, Actually”, we’re getting ready for returning readers and hopefully new readers.

So why not start by telling us where you went this summer? Click on the “Trips” tab at the top on the right, and share your travels with us!

It’s easy-peasy, lemon squeezy, as one of my colleagues would say!
