ENGLISH IN THE SUMMER-2: meaning and examples

Good morning everybody,

Today we continue with the topic of ways of keeping our English alive during the summer holidays. I want to thank all of you who sent in your suggestions yesterday, which we will include in tomorrow's Daily Vitamin.

Imagine coming back after summer with your English at the same level or even better than when you left. It is possible, but you must make the choice to do something with English during the holidays and WRITE IT DOWN! Don't just say it or think it, write down a plan, follow it and keep track of your progress during the summer.

A plan could be as simple as "I will read aloud for 3 minutes every day during my summer holidays" or "I will read an English book at the rate of at least two pages per day during my summer holidays," etc. It doesn't have to be complicated, but it must be something measurable that you can keep track of on a calendar or in your agenda. As one of our Daily Vitamin recipients once said, "find something that you really like, choose a hobby maybe, and try to do it in English."

On more than one occasion, I have had students return from their summer holidays having improved their English. It is possible...I promise!

Tomorrow we will look at some specific suggestions. Until then, have a great day!
