This singer has been my latest discovery. I know she's been singing for some years and I can't talk about her previous albums since I haven't listened to them yet. But I absolutely love her last releaseRed. I keep listening to it. There are so many songs I like such as State of Grace, I knew you were trouble, All too well, Starlight. I also love what she's written about her on her official website. We have a lot of things in common from jumping up and down at good news and believing 'love is everything' to liking antique stores and Meredith Grey.
This week's expression is for all of you who are having exams these days
practice makes perfect
and it means that doing something over and over again is the only way to learn to do it well. So, if you practise English a lot, you'll do well in your exams, for example.
I know it may sound as something teachers say a lot. However, when it comes to languages, practice is everything. I've learned from experience that if you watch many TV series in English, you'll improve your listening skills; and if you read a lot of books, you'll improve your reading comprehension.
So, now that you know how, you just have to do it!
Just a few weeks ago it snowed a lot in several parts of Spain, including our region. Being from the south of Spain it's very rare for me to see snow, and I must confess I smile like a child when I see it. However, it can be dangerous when you need to travel.
Now it seems to be snowing again! Not only in our region but all over Europe. Read the following article to see how snow is affecting countries around the world.
Do you know that in some countries there's still a censorship as to what can be written on the net? For example in China, if you write something politically sensitive, it'll be deleted immediately. Listen to the following podcast on this topic.
