Umbrella Newsletter # 59 - 'Citius, Altius, Fortius'

Dear Colleagues,

The third semester is in full swing at schools, students and University teachers are enjoying the last days of vacations before resuming classes next week and as “The Washington Post” highlights - “Russia in the limelight as Olympic games near”.
No doubt, the Olympics will be the most discussed event in the near future and for EFL teachers it will be a great chance to brush up your students’ grammar (with all comparative and superlative degrees of adjectives as well as conditional sentences of all types) and develop communicative and cross-cultural skills.

You can pick up some ideas at the following links:
