THE ALPHABET GAME: 'A'

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Friday and welcome to our first day of the 2018 Alphabet Game! Are you ready to play?

At the end of each academic year, right before summer, we review the Daily Vitamin posts from the year by playing this game. This is how it works. Each day, we ask you to complete a sentence with a missing word. The missing word will be begin with that day's letter of the alphabet (first the letter A, then the letter B, etc.) and will also be from a Daily Vitamin post from this year. To participate in the contest, post your answer on Ziggurat's Twitter page or Facebook page. The 3 players with the most correct answers will win one of the three prizes. 

Before you participate, we ask you to do two things to be eligible to win: 

1) Follow Ziggurat on Twitter or Facebook (if you haven't already).
2) Share yesterday's post about the rules on your Twitter or Facebook account.

This year, we are offering some great prizes!

1st Prize: A six-month General-English online course valued at 220€. It includes the initial level test and guidance with an online tutor, including telephone contact and written tutorials.

2nd Prize: A three-month 'English-for-Work' online course valued at 120.00€. It includes the initial level test and guidance with an online tutor, including telephone contact and written tutorials. The winner can choose the type of course they prefer (English for Meetings; Making Presentations; Negotiating and Selling; Banking and Finance; Telephoning; Dealing with the Public; Writing; Applying for a Job; or Travelling).

3rd Prize: Fresh'n Rebel Rockbox CUBE Bluetooth speaker, valued at 30€.

Now that we have reviewed the rules, let's get started with Day One! The answer begins with the letter A. It is a way to end a business letter. Can you complete the sentence below

Sentence: _____ the best, 

Here's a hint: the missing word has three letters
