Manage Your English Studies Over The Festive Holidays A few of us manage to do all the studying that we wish we could, over Christmas - there’s just too much going on. For instance; travelling, visiting friends / families and joyful celebrations. However, once Christmas is over and done, there’s the celebrations for New Year’s Eve, which can be nearly as time-consuming. In this article, we take a look at how you can plan your time and your studying to make the most of your Christmas break – so that you can catch up on your workload and have some festive fun as well. 1. Always set a particular time for studying every day (and let your family know about it). The best way to get around this is to pick a particular time of day to study, and to make sure your family knows about it. It is advisable to pick a time somewhere in the morning, so that you have the rest of the day free. While it can be hard to motivate yourself to study first thing in the morning, it’s even harder to do so later in the day. 2. Hold yourself accountable. Remind yourself of your personal study goals and try to at least squeeze in 1-2 hours of study during this period. It is better to dedicate at least an hour everyday during the festive season rather than not ACTUALLY studying. These are the main tips to follow in order to avoid neglecting your language goals. What other tips do you have in mind, that where not shared in this article?

READING PRACTICE !!!!!!! On the day of my first piano recital, I became more and more nervous. To help me calm down, my piano teacher told me to place several cabbages in the room where I practiced. I was so eager to get over my nerves that I was willing to try anything. For the next few hours, I played to an audience of cabbages. When the time of the recital finally arrived, I was still terribly nervous. My hands felt like ice. When I finally walked across the stage, I looked out into the dark audience. I could not see anyone! All those people out there could just as easily have been cabbages! As I sat down to play, my hands relaxed. Before I knew it, I had played all my pieces without a mistake. For the first time, the cabbage heads applauded!
On the day of the recital, the music teacher _____.
advised the writer to put cabbages in the room
warned the writer not to look at the audience
had no patience with the writer
felt nearly as nervous about the recital

Una palabra del ámbito político que proviene del árabe es el nombre que le damos a las personas que están en un cargo público importante, por ejemplo, al frente de una ciudad. El poder del alcalde es limitado, en comparación con el poder y el alcance de un gobernador. En árabe, la palabra alcalde significa lo mismo que "juez". Today's word is related to a political topic. In Spanish, the word mayor (Alcalde) comes from the arabic 'Alqádi', which means literally 'judge'. A mayor has less power than, for example, a governor, and that's probably related to the original meaning of the word. Did you know the spanish origin of this word?
Escoge la oración correcta respecto a las ideas de la publicación y con el uso correcto de la palabra:
El alcalde tiene más poder que el gobernador
La alcalde es muy importante
El alcalde es un importante cargo público
Los alcaldesas siempre tienen que ser escogidos.
