Summertime…

… and we’re still studying English! We’re also regularly updating our online magazine, “English, Actually”.

Current topics are “Someone We Know“, in which we describe a close friend or relative.

And we’re also posting our Favourite Photos.

It’s now time to think about travel. Where are you going this summer? Tell us about your holiday plans by writing to our Travel Page.

Make our magazine interactive by adding your comments and reactions. Everybody welcome!

Our Memorable Nights, Houses and What-Ifs

You may have noticed a special new menu item, “What If?” This is where you can speculate on the past and future. “What would I do if…?” “What would[n’t] have happened if…?” Don’t be put off by the grammar; it’s not as tricky as many people think.

Still highly current: Our Memorable Nights Out, Our Favourite Times, and, now, Our Houses. Come, join us, participate – and never worry about making mistakes. The Editor is here to help you. Rule number one around here is:

Keep Calm – and Carry On Writing.

Our Memorable Nights

That’s our latest topic. Artur, from Krakòw, has written a nice story.

So write in and tell us about your memorable night out. Go to our “Memorable Nights” page, read – and then write! We look forward to your special nights.

Guess Who?

This week we are writing about famous people: here, elsewhere, past or present. But there’s a special condition: write what you like, but don’t mention the person’s name!

And don’t make it too easy, either. If you are writing about someone really famous, be “economical with the truth”, as somebody once said.

The idea: write about your famous person. Our readers will then reply with a comment to guess who he or she is or was.

The contributor who attracts the most comments will get an Honourable Mention – and maybe a prize.

Surf over now to the ‘Famous People‘ page!

Our Favourite Times…

… of day, week and year. People are writing about this again!

To see what they’re saying, navigate over to our Favourite Times page.

Antonella writes, “My favourite time of day is eight in the morning because I love to have a hearty breakfast while reading and think I have a whole day before me.”

Andrea writes, “My favourite day of the week is Saturday because, in the evening, I go out with my friends to go to dinner or somewhere nice.”

Alessandro writes, “My favourite month is May because it is the month of my birthday.”

Barbara writes, “My favourite public holiday are Christmas, the 25th April and the 1st May.”

Then have your say.  It’s easy peasy: go down to the bottom of the page, click on “Now You Write”, and follow instructions.

 

Men and Women: How True are the Stereotypes?

That’s what we’re talking about right now. Some people have said:

“I think it is true that women are less interested in sport than men. I can say that because when my boyfriend and his friends watch football matches on TV, me and the other girls, prefer to do something else, like putting polish on our nails.” – Melania

MEN TALK MORE ABOUT THINGS;WOMEN TALK MORE ABOUT PEOPLE: In my opinion, it is true. I hear often women talking about other people (friends,their bosses etc) while men talk more about football, cars and women! – Giacomo

WOMEN ARE BETTER AT MULTITASKING THAN MEN: I really agree. Very few men can do all sorts of things at once.– Valentina
