Unexpected Christmas present

Christmas is round the corner and it's a time for celebration, for family gatherings and for presents. As English students the best present we can receive is being given new opportunities to improve our English, and this is what today's post is about.

A few weeks ago I came across a series of videos under the title Back to BasicsBack to Basics is a series of short videos, around two minutes each, explaining basic vocabulary to use in everyday situations. In each video we can learn verbs, expressions and vocabulary with teacher Alison Lanthorn, from Vaughan TV. She is very pedagogical, constantly draws our attention to the differences between British English and American English for vocabulary and uses some translation in Spanish to help us memorise the new items.
